Es Trenc, commonly known as Playa des Trenc, is a beautiful beach on the southern coast of Mallorca in Spain’s Balearic Islands. This lovely stretch of coastline is famous among both visitors and residents due to its crystal-clear waters and fine white sand.
The beach spans for more than (circa) 3 kilometers and is one of Mallorca’s most beautiful and pristine beaches, as it is protected by a natural park. The beach is surrounded by dunes and pine forests, which act as a natural barrier against development and contribute to the preservation of the area’s natural beauty.
Es Trenc is a great place to unwind and enjoy the sun because the beach is relatively quiet and tranquil in comparison to other more busy beaches on the island. Swimming, snorkeling, and windsurfing are among the many water sports available to visitors. There are also some adjacent beach bars where you may have a bite to eat or a refreshing drink.
One of Es Trenc’s biggest draws is its crystal-clear water, which is great for swimming and snorkeling. The seas are home to a wide diversity of marine life, including octopus, starfish, and a variety of colorful fish, making it a popular diving and snorkeling location.
The beach is also a fantastic place to go bird watching, as it is home to many different bird species, including the Audouin’s Gull and the Kentish Plover. The surrounding dunes and pine forests support a diverse diversity of plant and animal life, making it an ideal location for nature enthusiasts.
Es Trenc is an excellent choice for families with children for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons is because, in comparison to other beaches on the island, the beach is relatively calm and tranquil, making it a safe and pleasurable setting for children to play close to the shoreline and swim.
The beach is guarded by lifeguards, offering added security for families. As previously mentioned, the beach is also rather shallow, making it ideal for (younger) kids to play in the water.
Es Trenc also offers a variety of other things for family to enjoy, aside from playing on the beach and building sandcastles, you could explore the neighboring dunes and pine trees or even do a short visit to the nearby salt production facilities, take a tour, or just visit the cafe before heading back to the beach. This can be an excellent method for families to spend quality time together while creating lifelong memories.
The beach is also easily accessible by car, having a large parking lot nearby, and there is a bus service that goes from Palma to Es Trenc, making it accessible from the capital. The parking lot is roughly 350 meters away from the beach and funnels through a short, but narrow passageway which can get busy during the summer months, however, provides direct access between the beach and the parking lot. The parking area is open from 09:00 am to 21:00 pm and costs 7 Euros for a day ticket. If you would like to leave during the course of the day and return later, just check in with the personnel at the gate. And the roads leading to the beach may sometimes seem closed off, however these narrow roads are accessible and only go to the parking lot.
Other amenities include a toilet, which may not be the cleanest, however is available right after the passage way from the parking lot, located on the beach.
An important aspect to consider for those bringing along food and drinks is that there are no trash cans (bins) on site. Meaning all the things you bring with you, please make sure to place them in a bag and take back with you to dispose elsewhere. Keep the area clean.
Finally, Es Trenc is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Mallorca. With its crystal-clear seas, fine white sand, and unspoilt natural beauty, it provides guests with the ideal setting for relaxation, sunbathing, and a variety of outdoor sports. Es Trenc is the ideal location for swimming, snorkeling, or simply relaxing on the beach.
