Es Grau beach, in Menorca

Es Grau Beach is 7km away from Mahón. It's a mandatory beach if you go to Menorca with children, cause you will have to go so far to find deep water. So that's an excellent point to enjoy a relaxing day on the beach.

The beach itself begins in the village. There's friendly parking where you can park your car near the beachfront. You have to cross a small bridge, and we will be there. It's very long, and it has a small hill in the middle. Why not go to the top to take a likeable selfie? It's only for 2 minutes!

Services in Es Grau

Es Grau beach has some lifeguards at the beginning and in the middle on the vigilance tower.

There's a kayak renting company there, so you can rent it per hour if you want to do some sport. That's an excellent opportunity for a good forecast day because the surroundings are fantastic. There's no better alternative to exploring than by the sea.

If there's a lot of seaweed on the shore, walk until the end of the Cala. Then, probably there will be less there. Weirdly this happens in summer, as companies used to extract the algae before the summer.

Don't miss a visit to Es Grau village.

Es Grau is one of the villages that are more conserved in Menorca. There are the typical white houses of one or two flats with white roofs.

Depending on the picture, it can be confused with the fisher's village of Binibequer. Es Grau is so small, so we can easily visit it in less than 20 minutes, so it's a mandatory visit if you go to its beach.

It has four restaurants, where you can appreciate amazing views and taste incredible dishes of local gastronomy. Three of them are at the begging of the village, and the last one is in Es Grau dock. From there, you can see, depending on the time, how still old fishers come back from the sea with great big catches.

Also, there's a small supermarket if we have any urgency. It's in the street behind Can Bernadet Restaurant.

Visiting Colom Island is impressive.

You can go to the Illa d'en Colom from the Es Grau port. You can book a taxi boat that will take you to the island and pick you up when you agree with the captain. With the landscape you will see, you will believe that you are not in Spain; it is an even cheaper option than renting a kayak for a whole day.

Colom island menorca

Colom Island was bought in 2018 for 4 million euros to businessman Victor Madera. Although the island's middle is private, all their beaches and shores are public. So we are not going to have any problem enjoying them.

The main beaches on the island are:

  • Tamarells Beach. It is the closest to Es Grau; it has a lot of trees, so that's a pretty ideal option if you are looking for some shadows to relax.
  • Arenal d'en Moro. That's the beach on the north of Colom's Island. It is by far the nicest, with fantastic water.

If you go in the entire summer, you will find the relaxation missed in Es Grau beach on these beaches. And also see a unique and virgin landscape in the north of Menorca.

If the weather is good, you can rent a kayak or a boat. You are even going paddling because it is not far away. You can rent it on the beach.

There's also a company in the centre of the beach which departures on the harbour.

Made a walk around Albufera d'es Grau

Menorca is a Biosphere Reserve. Menorcan people are focused on the preservation of nature. In the natural park of Es Grau, it's appreciated. It's an area on the north of Mahon that goes from Es Grau to Favaritx.

Inside this park and very close to the beach, there's the Albufera. It's a fantastic place with a pleasant ecosystem that allows the increase of birds. But, unfortunately, most of them were almost in extinction danger some time ago.

From Es Grau, we can go from two places.

  • You can park your vehicle at the begging of Es Grau and walk in the road direction of Mahón. Two hundred meters on the right side, you will see an entrance.
  • The second option is to go from the beach. After the small hill, a small path crosses a dune system.
