Colom Island, Menorca

Colom Island is the biggest Island in Menorca, close to Es Grau Village. A charming white village with a very recommended beach for children.

The Island was from the Roca family and sold in 2018 to businessman Victor Mader (3 Million ?). As a result, the natural park of Es Grau and Menorca Biosphere Reserve becomes Colom Island in one of the most protected places in Menorca.

What can we see on Colom Island?

Geographically, it has 59 hectares of terrain. The forest is mainly green, with different kinds of vegetation, which becomes this place in one of the most virgin areas of Menorca.

Their beaches Arenal d'en Moro and Tamarells Beach, have fine sand, very strange compared with the shores of the North of Menorca. Both beaches are located on the west of the Island, so it's protected from the hard wind of the North, called Tramuntana.

Mandatory visit to Colom Island.

If you want to visit Colom Island, you have several options:

  1. You can access swimming. The Island is only 200 meters from Menorca, although you have to be worried cause there's a lot of maritime traffic. So we don't recommend this option.
  2. Kayak. It is probably the cheapest and most straightforward way to go. Menorca becomes a referent in that way, and you will find a lot of companies where you cant rent a kayak to enjoy the day.
  3. By Boat. That's the most comfortable way but at the same time the most expensive. In Es Grau harbour there is a boat taxi that can take you there in summer. Also, most of the big ports of Menorca have excursions that can take you also there.
