The beach des Grau is an old fishermen’s nucleus, converted into a summer area for many Menorcans. It is the beach par excellence to go with children, it has very little depth, the first 20-30 mt. it barely covers your ankles.
Although its sand is very fine, some areas are covered by Posidonia algae (a protected species) and it has a very peculiar dune system that runs along the entire beach and acts as a protective barrier of the lagoon.
