Es Trenc Beach, Mallorca

Famous unspoilt beach on the south coast of Majorca

  • Es Trenc is not attached to any resort, so it is fairly isolated and has a wild and natural feel. There are 2km of golden sand and crystal clear water - it's often referred to as Mallorca's answer to the Caribbean. 

    Whilst long, the beach is not very deep, at 20 metres or so. So you may find people walking quite close by you as they search for their own quiet spot. It is very beautiful and despite it's relative remoteness, the beach remains very popular and is very busy during peak times.

    Facilities aren't bad at all for a beach without an attached resort. You'll find sunbeds and parasols for hire, lifeguards on duty, toilets, ramps for the disabled and restaurants. Try the bars at Ses Covettes for a more competitively priced beer.

    This has long been an unofficial nudist beach, even during the puritanical Franco era. For all its faults, it does make for a more peaceful, less commercial beach compared to some of the others on Majorca's coast.

    The shallow water makes it suitable for children. Behind the beach lie protected sand dunes and wetlands which are home to migratory birds and marine vegetation.

    To get here, you can drive, or take a bus. There is access from both Ses Covettes and through the salt flats to the south. The car parking is cheaper at Ses Covettes entrance. The Es Trenc Restaurant offers parking for €10 which is then subtracted from your lunch bill, but the over-priced, indifferent quality food is probably not worth it.

    It's great for windsurfing and wild natural beauty, but remember you may have to walk some distance before you find a quiet spot.

    The closest place to stay is the resort of Colonia St Jordi or you could choose to stay in a rural finca in the area around Campos - you can find some very well priced fincas here.
