Es Grau beach

The beach at Es Grau is one of the largest on the East coast and sits in a large spectacular horseshoe-shaped bay. The water stays very shallow for over 100 feet with very calm currents helped by the island S’Illa d’en Colom that lies towards the entrance of the bay. This creates a beach perfect for families with small children, who can sit and relax on the beach.

Towards the rear of the beach are low sand dunes and pines woods that lead towards a lake in the heart of the S’Albufera nature reserve. Read our guide to the Es Grau beach to find out more.

The Isla d'en Colon, the offshore island that shelters the bay has two wonderful sandy beaches located on the protected west coast, Arenal d’en Moro and Tamarells. The island is approximately 200 meters from the mainland and can be reached by kayak or water taxi from the resorts quayside.

To the north of Es Grau, along the ancient footpath Cami de Cavalls, there are more wonderful coves and beaches including Cala Rambles and Cala de sa Torreta.
