Es Grau is a typical Menorcan fishing village, unspoilt and semi-secluded sat in a nature reserve - 85% of the population being Menorcan . There are three bar restaurants, one waterside restaurant, a small but well stocked mini supermarket and several virgin local beaches, which are safe for small children with extremely shallow sandy bottoms.
Very natural unspoilt beach especially good for smaller children due it's unbelievable shallows. And while this makes it very popular for children it's big enough for those who prefer to avoid the little ones to find their ideal spots too! Locals will visit on weekends otherswise the beach is generally empty. Pedalos,kayaks and sailing craft can be hired from the centre of the main beach. Children will love to explore the area behind the beach and the 'island' in the middle.
The beach can be reached via nearby car parks or on foot from the fishing village or through the S'albufera park.
