Two south-facing beaches and crystal clear waters between the islands.
The "Illa de'n Colom" is the largest island off the coast of Menorca, located only 9.5 nautical miles away, you will reach this paradise after approximately half an hour of sailing at a speed of 20 knots.
Colom, it is almost 59 hectares in size and forms part of the protected natural area known as "L'Albufera de's Grau". Its history dates back to the 18th century, when it was used as a former hospital, as a lazaretto, and other lands were used for cultivation.
The unique island of Menorca has two beaches, S'Arenal de'n Moro and Es Tamarells. Both are characterised by their virginity, coarse golden sand, typical of the north coast of Menorca, and crystal clear turquoise water. The Arenal de'n Moro beach is located further to the north of the island, is the most frequented and stands out for the cliff that rises above it and protects it from the strong north winds. On the other hand, in Tamarells, its virginity is altered by a small fishermen's hut that used to be used to leave boats, and which was used by the owner's family until a couple of years ago.
The island itself is unique, and is ideal for a quiet day out on the boat and with the family. For snorkellers, the seabed is a paradise. However, be careful as there is no lifeguard service.
For those accessing by boat, you must anchor in the permitted anchorage and make sure that your anchor does not affect the seaweed. If your anchor damages the seabed, a coast guard will come to your boat to warn you. There are also buoys available, but book in advance, otherwise you will have to anchor far from the coves, only where the seabed is sandy.
Bear in mind that barely 200 metres separate the island from the coast of Menorca, so if you want to go sightseeing in Colom, you have several options, from renting a kayak in "Es Grau" to a scooter or getting into the taxi that makes the transfers. For adventure lovers, kayaking is one of the most daring and fun options.
For those who love gastronomy, the island is located in El Grau, an old fishing village where you will find several restaurants where you can enjoy the typical gastronomy of Menorca and the Mediterranean coast, from fresh fish to salads and meats.
