A peaceful haven for nature lovers.

A peaceful and lush environment perfect for walking and observing nature, including the occasional meandering tortoise!

We arrived here after the walk through the big nature reserve from Cap de Favoritx. Considering that most Spanish food places shut around 3pm we were thankful that there were 1 or 2 places here open all day with good food.

This is a place we have stayed in self catering accommodation cottages overlooking the beach several times due to its unspoilt beautiful peaceful location next to the s'albufera nature park. Great place seeking for those seeking nature and a get away from it all sanctuary!

Visited the s'Albufera des Grau nature reserve in May 2013 and we certainly weren't disappointed. We'd visited the place before, and this time it was no different. I'm writing a review on the actual reserve, not the village of Es Grau. Upon arrival, there is a visitor's centre with a very helpful receptionist who speaks excellent English and provides detailed... More

This is a lovely little village with a wide sandy bay. The water is very shallow which is great for kids and pedaloes are available for hire to be able to look back at the beautiful coastline from the water. The S'Albufera nature reserve with its lagoon is also worth a visit to try and spot some of the many... More

In our view this was the best beach we visited. The sea was warm and you could watch the fish swim by. Also was not too crowded in September.

Es Grau is a village near a nature reserve. There is a freshwater lagoon with paths and hides around it. There is an information centre in the middle. Of the more unusual birds (for a British birder) we saw purple gallinule and Sardinian warbler. There were little egrets by the dozen and osprey. The lagoon is chock full of fish... More
