Es Trenc Beach
Set in the far south of Mallorca, Es Trenc is a large stretch of unspoilt white sand with clear turquoise waters reminiscent of the Caribbean. Despite its remote, wild character this is still one of the best-known beaches on Mallorca and is popular with locals and visitors alike.
Es Trenc is a great family beach as the water is shallow and tends to be calm. There are lifeguards towards the middle of the beach too. Facilities are quite basic, with a couple of “chiringuitos” (Mallorcan beach cafes) but beyond this you will have to head to one of the neighbouring resorts. It is also worth noting there is not much in the way of shade at Es Trenc and it does get hot so consider bringing or hiring an umbrella.
With the resort town of Colonia de Sant Jordi to the south and Sa Rapita just north it is a minor miracle that Es Trenc has managed to retain its feel of remoteness and wild beauty. Big developers have had their eye on the beach for many years with one major project being thrown out by the Spanish Supreme court a few years back. Es Trenc is now part of the Salobrar de Campos natural park so hopefully it will be safe from over-development for many years.
Es Trenc is probably the best known naturist beach on the island. With so much space and a backdrop of sand dunes it is particularly appealing and several of the more remote sections of the beach are designated for nudists. However, most beachgoers here do keep their swimsuits on at Es Trenc.
The area around Es Trenc beach is a landscape of lagoons, dunes and salt flats. The Salinas de Es Trenc here are where the finest salt in the Balearics is produced and you can see how it is harvested or buy some in the adjacent shop and cafe. This is also a great spot for birdwatching with flamingos, sea eagles or reeds all seen here.
