Es Grau, an ideal beach for explorers!
Es Grau beach is a very popular beach in Menorca, the largest of the ANEI of s'Albufera that bears its name. A beach where you can rent a kayak and visit the island of En Colom, which protects the entrance to the bay from the waves, and other beautiful beaches nearby (mentioned in previous blogs).
We can consider it a beach with services as, although it is virgin, it can also be considered urban. In the village "des Grau" we can find some services, such as where to eat, because there are several restaurants and where to buy drinks and food... to access the beach, you have to cross from the village car park, over a wooden bridge over the stream that connects s'Albufera to the sea. A very popular beach, with fine, whitish sand, ideal to go with children, as it is shallow, it is a very safe beach and families feel very comfortable here. The waters are generally very clean and it is an ideal place to be calm. The beach is affected by all winds, on the other hand, the good thing is that we will hardly find waves on it.
This beach is divided in two by a rock formation known as the "Roca des Mabres". Apart from not being very busy, it is the starting point for other nearby beaches, always along the Camí de Cavalls. As we have seen so far, from es Grau to the Favaritx lighthouse, there are several beaches that we have talked about in the last few blogs and which are extraordinarily beautiful.

Ca s’Arader is named after Menorca’s artisan carpenters that used the wood from the indigenous wild olive tree to make all kinds of farming tools. In the olden days it was an essential role for the islands economy that was passed on from fathers to sons. Today, the few artisan carpenters or araders that are left, mostly make gates, tables, benches or stalls amongst other items.
