    Lovely beach place but go prepared with food and drink.
    We stopped off here for a couple of hours when we hired a car for a few days. It's a lovely beach. Back to basics, no sun beds, no beach bars ... Really. There are toilets - portaloo kind of things in the car park which seemed to be quite clean and have hand sanitizer in them. These were free so it's brilliant there were toilets available. There were two free car parks both very close to the beach. There was a juice bar in the car park which was handy but no sea view or anything. Shame there wasn't a cafe or anything to go to so we literally went in the sea and had our own snacks and drinks. I'd say it's a great beach place but go prepared with your own umbrella for shade and picnic. The sea was soooo safe for the little ones very shallow and calm. Beautiful with all the little boats.

    Kayaking
    Es Grau is a quiet little beach near a small fishing village, with a lovely nature reserve behind it. It has no facilities on it, so be prepared. We hired kayaks for an hour - the young ladies operating the kayaks were lovely and helpful. Fortunately, we didn't go for the 2 hour option - it was quite hard work getting out of the harbour and was fairly choppy, and we would have had to paddle a long way to get to a beach. Luckily there is a tiny beach with a white house on it nearby which we could paddle back to - a few nude people on the beach too!

    Lovely beach, few cafes nearby, good parking and kayaking too!
    This was a great little beach which we drove to from our hotel. Very clear water and nice to snorkel. Lots of parking nearby. We hired kayaks for 2 hours which meant we could paddle over to the island nearby and do some snorkelling. If you do this then be prepared, take water and some food. Cover yourself in high factor sun cream, like factor 50. There was one part of the kayak trip which meant I had to get out and push, so wear some waterproof sandles or similar. Take snorkel gear if you have it. It does require a bit of effort so an adult in each kayak would be better. The kayak company give you waterproof bags too and yes, like preservers.

    A delight out of high season
    Last visited in December on a beautiful day. It’s nice to see the bay without all the little yellow buoys and boats that cram into it in the summer season. Only one bar open for the locals, but they do excellent tapas and dish of the day. Walked along the beach and then turned off the beach along the cami de Cavalls to the back of the nature reserve and albufera. Then back via the road into the village again. Well worth a visit and day out on the beach, but be advised that the small car park gets packed out in high season from very early morning and there are few alternatives available.

A big horse shoe bay, not white soft sand like the south but beautiful and crystal clear water. The national park is behind and boats in the bay make it all interesting. Kayak hire to the little island was easy and the beaches there quite and stunning. A couple of restaurants to choose from right near the water

Fairly pretty coves. Lots of space on the lengthy beach stretches. Near to a sleepy village with a bar and a couple of restaurants. Easy access from car park. Kayaking and boating activities.

As a woman who has visited a plethora of Minorcan beaches I always seem to find my self back at Es Grau and particularly the Bar at Es Grau (You know me!).
15 minutes from the heart of Mahon one finds the delightful little seaside village of Es Grau, here one can choose from a gorgeous crescent beach with a large shallow area perfect for small children and a large rock that older children will enjoy swimming out to, a bit jagged thou so do make sure the nanny is watching. There is also a delightful and surprisingly wheelchair accessible nature walk where if your lucky you might see some wild birds and a rouge tortoise but as it’s a wildlife and nature reserve the local do seem to frown quite a bit if you pick some of the samphire, woopsie! And I’m sure there is a whole host of other lovely things that I’ve never got round to seeing because I struggle to make it much further than the exquisite beach side bar. Now if I were to tell you there was a bar adjacent to a free car park with cheep plastic furnishings you would probably say ohhh come on Sarah but trust me darling, it’s a gem. On the sand and blessed with that most precious kind of shade, dappled. This bar is the perfect beachside rest. Set on a beachside dune with short windy trees providing canopy, a relaxing atmosphere and a truly wonderful view this bar really is the perfect spot to sit and drink as you watch your children play in the distance or if like me you prefer to advise the vigour of the local life guards. The bar staff have been know. to be a rude, their English is far from acceptable and if you order an ice coffee it will be largely a DIY affair involving an espresso a glass of ice and small metal jug of milk. But these small niggling faults aside it really is a place not to miss.

Impressive beach. Clear water. Big area. Lots of fish in the water to look at especially near the center rock. We met no jellyfish at all there. That was a relief because we firstly checked beaches on the southern part of the island and their waters were full of them.
