We took the first walk, labelled as 45 minutes. Due to stopping to take photos and hunt for wildlife it took us nearer 3 hours. The views are spectacular and we did spot a tortoise and lots of lizards. Lots of people however were taking the walk merely as exercise, despite the rough path, stomping along, even chatting on phones, so the wildlife scarpered. Not everyone quite gets the nature thing, I suppose. Machine-gun fire phone conversations in the hide don't help. However, it's worth the trip, truly beautiful. There is a loo in the visitor centre and plenty of parking when we went. Walking boots recommended.

The S Albufera national park is a lovely reserve in Es Grau. The views are really pretty and of course lots of birds which is what we went for. A great selection of waders and a good view of a water rail. Bird watchers will enjoy it.

A lovely, clean, quiet, horseshoe shaped beach, with shallow water for quite a way out, so ideal for kids. Lifeguard station, canoe & boat hire, & best of all, NO SUN BEDS / RENTAL UMBRELLAS ! Backed by the nature reserve of S'Albufeira, which is accessible from the beach, and well worth a visit, and village of Es Grau at one end, with a few bars and great restaurant overlooking the bay.
One of the best places to flop & catch the rays, read a book, take a stroll, eat a long lunch, & just BE.

The whole area is a habitat for bird and animal alike. In September however it is quite dry and their is not enough water in the lagoon.
If you are lucky you may see some extraordinary birds.

Es Grau is a picturesque village with a lovely sweeping beach - the water is shallow to quite a distance out. Beware visiting after a storm - the bay fills up with jellyfish that give a bit of a sting. Wander further up the beach away from the village if you are into a bit of sunbathing "au natural"

There is a local car park about 2/3 minutes from the beach butt beware it does get busy. There is a very acceptable restaurant on the waters edge.
