Colom Island in Menorca

Illa d'en Colom is a magical place in Menorca where the turquoise blue sea meets bright sunshine. The island has two beautiful beaches, both with white sand and exciting activities for all ages to enjoy!

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 Madera (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.

The eastern side of Illa d'en Colom is much more rugged than its western half. The cliffs tower over the opposite shore, forming two capes- Cap de Mestral and Llevant which are joined by a small sea inlet known as Sa Mitjalluna.

There are some rocks near this area that should be considered if you go by boat because they barely cover up with water at times during high tide or storms.

Visit the Colom Island!

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

  • The Boat is the most comfortable option without a doubt. You can book a speedboat that makes the Es Grau - Illa d'en Colom route. It is not expensive and will take you back to the port when you are tired.
  • Kayak is possibly the easiest option, but you will need at least 4 hours to do the excursion calmly. You will find many companies that can rent you a kayak to visit it.
  • Though it is only 200 meters through the Baix d'es Pas , we advise against swimming there because there are so many boats that navigate these waters.
