Es Grau beach, in Menorca

Es Grau Beach, is just 7km 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 a good point to enjoy a fully relaxing day on the beach.

The beach itself, begins on the village. There's a nice parking we can park the car at not many meters. We have to cross a small bridge, and we will be there. It's very long, and it has a small hill just in middle. Why not going to the top to take a nice selfie? It's just 2 minutes.

Regarding services, Es Grau beach has some life guards, one just on the begging, and one in the middle on the vigilance tower. If you want to do some sport, there's a kayak company just there, you can rent it per hours. So that's a good option if there's good weather, because the surroundings of Es Grau are awesome. There's no better option to explore than by the sea.

If you arrive to the beach, and you see there's lot of seaweed on the shore, a good option is to walk until the end of the beach, because probably there will be less. It's weird that this happens in full summer; Administrations used to remove the algae, like in all the other touristic beaches of Menorca.

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 the white roofs. Depending on the picture, can be confused with the fishers 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 the its beach.

It has 4 restaurants, where you can enjoy an amazing views and taste awesome dishes of local gastronomy. Three of them are in the begging of the village, and the last one in Es Grau harbour. 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 an small supermarket, in case we have any urgency. It's in the street behind Can Bernadet Restaurant.

Visit Colom Island, is amazing

Colom island menorca

From the same Es Grau harbour, in summer, there's some small boats that bring people to the Island. Why not staying for a day there? The service is similar to the taxi, so we won't have problems to stay one that in the island.

Colom Island was bought in 2018 by 4 million euros to businessman Victor Madera. Although the interior of the island is private, all their beaches and shores are public. We are not gonna have any problem to enjoy them.

The main beaches on the island are:

  • Tamarells Beach. Is the closest of Es Grau, it has lot of trees so that's a pretty nice option if we are looking for some shadows to relax
  • Arenal d'en Moro. That's the beach on the north of Colom's Island. Is by far the nicest, with an amazing waters

Definitely, if you go in full summer, you will find in these beaches the relax that is missed in Es Grau beach. And also see an amazing and virgin landscapes on the north of Menorca.

If the weather is so good, instead of going by boat, we can rent a kayak to go, and try going there paddling because is not far away. We can rent it on the beach, although in the center of the beach there's also a company so we can departure directly from the harbour.

Made a walk around Albufera d'es Grau

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

Inside this park, and very close of the beach, there's the albufera. An amazing place with a nice ecosystem that allows the increase of birds, that were almost on danger of extinction time ago.

From Es Grau, we can go from two places

  • You can park your vehicle just on the begging of Es Grau, and walk on the road direction to Mahón. 200 meters on right side you will see an entrance.
  • Second option is to go from the beach. Just after the small hill, there's a small path which crosses a dune system.
