Es Trenc is the largest undeveloped beach on the island and also one of the best known beaches and runs for 10km along the south of Mallorca.
The beach is a perfect example of how pretty the Mallorcan coast was prior to over-development and has long stretches of pristine white sand, Caribbean blue waters, wild beauty and soft sand dunes.
A major draw for visitors is the water; which is shallow and calm with just the occasional wave. The location is also attractive because the beach is backed by a 1500 hectare natural wetland called Salobrar de Campos, which contains the salt flats, ‘Ses Salines’, a small lake and an abundance of birds.
The beach has a few rocky outcroppings with shrubs and pines and this enhances the natural and restful outlook of the area. The salt mines are important to the island due to their size and quantity of salt production and they have a history going all the way back to the 4th century BC
Es Trenc is officially a nudist beach; however this is not mandatory and you will find a mix of naturists and clothed visitors enjoying the beach.
The beach is very popular with younger adults and families despite the fact that there are not many services and facilities available. You’ll find a few beach-style bars that serve snacks and just one main restaurant. You can rent sunbeds, chairs and umbrellas but you won’t find much else with the exception of basic toilets. During the summer, vendors walk along the beach selling cold drinks and local craft such as tapestries and handmade jewellery.
The main reason people come to Es Trenc is to escape the main tourist areas and chill out and this beach is ideal for doing just that!
To get to Es Trenc, you take the signed turn off the Ma6049 and drive along the narrow road past the salt fields to the parking area. You’ll then need to walk 400m to the beach.
There are 262 different beaches on the island with 21 of them flying the Blue Flag. We think that there are a few beaches which ‘stand out from the crowd’ and require a special mention and you will find these on this page.
