The beach of Es Trenc is situated on the south coast of Mallorca and one best known on the island. A kilometre-long beach of white sand and turquoise waters, surrounded by sand dunes forming part of the maritime-terrestrial natural park Es Trenc - Salobrar de Campos. Along the beach you can find some old bunkers that were built during the Second World War. Nowadays, they are an artistic attraction where you can appreciate words from local poet Miquel Costa y Llobera. All these characteristics make it very popular, but ideal for a day of sailing surrounded by nature. It is also known for being a nudist beach, so in some areas you can find nudists enjoying the sun too.
What to do in Es Trenc
A few metres from the beach you can find the eatery Es Trenc Restaurant, where you can taste fresh fish, seafood and a wide variety of rice dishes, among others. When the beach was declared a natural park, the beach bars had to be demolished and replaced by small removable huts where you can buy fresh drinks and snacks. Just a few minutes' drive from the beach are the towns of Colonia de Sant Jordi, s’Estanyol and Sa Ràpita where you will find a wide variety of bars, restaurants and shops to end a wonderful day at the beach.
In Es Trenc you won't find water sports, but it is a perfect beach to swim along the shore, snorkel and watch one of the most beautiful sunsets on the island from your yacht. You can also visit Salobrar de Campos which is one of the most ecologically valuable coastlines in Mallorca. Or learn about the salt industry at Las Salinas, where you can take a guided tour and do some shopping.
Visiting Es Trenc by boat
Es Trenc is an ideal option to visit by boat, as it is quite busy with locals and tourists, so you can avoid the crowds and enjoy its beauty more peacefully at sea. There are also several smaller beaches just a short distance away which also have their own unique charm, such as Es Peregons and Petits, among others. This makes it very easy to sail from one to the other in the same day. The nearest port facility is Colonia de Sant Jordi, just three nautical miles away. Just a short sail away from Es Trenc, we find the small island of Cabrera, a natural inunhabited place with crystal clear waters, perfect for anchoring. Certain permits are required to visit Cabrera with your own boat so it’s important to check this in advance.
Moorings in Estrenc
The seabed of Es Trenc is made up of sand, seaweed and some rocky formations at a depth of about 4 metres. On days when the sea is a little rough, a hidden raised slab of about 0.5m is created, so we recommend sailors not to anchor too close to the shore. The best place to anchor is near the old jetty, in the vicinity of l'illa Gavina. However, as it is such a long beach, anchoring is not usually a problem.
