How to get around?
Save

Off to stay at a Villa in Binibeca next week but were not hiring a car! I've read posts about the road train... Does anyone know where to get it from? Also with us not hiring a car (seems silly now!) is public bus best to get to other resorts?! Binibeca seems quiet? Thanks for the help :)

For bus timetable see

http://www.menorca-net.co.uk/menorca/menorca_bus_timetable.php

it uses the Menorquin spelling of Binibequer. The buses aren't that frequent and it depends on where you are staying as to where you'll catch it, but the stops are quite prominent and there are timetables at the stops. Buses go to Sant Lluis and Mahon

The road train runs from Binibeca along the coast to Punta Prima (where you can also catch a bus to Sant Lluis and Mahon) with a few stops on the way i.e. at the beach and some hotels. It is a fun way of getting around but is expensive and not the ideal mode of usual getting around transport. It does however run quite late with the last one around 23:00 (check the signposts at the stops for the exact time. Depending on how many there are of you, you could be better off taking a taxi or getting the bus one way and a taxi back.

You can always hire a car for a few days whilst you are there. If you a travelling independently, you can find hire car recommendations on this forum and you can hire cars locally.

With regard to Binibeca being quiet - As you are in a villa I am assuming you are up the hill away from the 'fishing village', so it will be quiet. Even in the centre where the restaurants and shops are it isn't going to be noisy/lively other than the normal night time sounds of restaurants and bars. There may be the occasional entertainment, but you aren't going to be kept awake into the wee small hours (unless you have the family from hell staying in the villa next door!) There is only a handful of non-food shops in Binibeca, but the supermarkets are good and as well as the restaurants in Binibeca Vell (western end) there are more in the middle in Bininbeca Nou and at Cala Torret (Eastern end). It takes about 15 or so minutes to walk from one end to the other, or you can take the road train.

Binibequer is a Villa resort and most people spend a LOT of time in the Villa or at the beach. Plenty going on in evening if you have good company, plus more on if you take the road train to Punta Prima. Agree with all the above.
