What can we see in Colom Island?


Geografically, 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 has a very fine sand, very strange compared with the beaches of the North of Menorca. Both beaches are located on the west of the Island, so it's totally 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 much maritim traffic. So we don't recommend this option.
  2. Kayak. Probably is the cheapest and simplest way to go. Menorca becomes a refent on that way, and you will find 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 which can take you there in summer. Also, mostly of big ports of Menorca have excursions that can take you also there.
