If you think back to an image of that old movie "The Blue Lagoon", you might imagine a paradise similar to that of Es Trenc. Declared a protected area and saved from urbanization, it seduces visitors with the glitter of its bright water and white sand.

Four kilometres of coast hold over 170 species of birds that hover over this natural wonder. One of the most virgin beaches in Majorca, it created controversy due to the economic interests who recognized an unparalleled source of wealth. A system of dunes separates the beach from crop fields. This is a fantastic beach to take a loaded cooler, and don’t forget the trempó (typical Majorcan salad)!

Nature springs everywhere in Es Trenc; two underground springs were found with different temperatures, the result of research since 1827, which justify its name from Catalan origin, meaning crack or break.

This beach’s gentle slope and clear waters captivate everyone and,  infected by its pure air, they are freed, not only from stress but also from their bathing suits. The central part of this beach is a perfect place to experience nudity, while the remaining areas are sprinkled with beach bars, umbrellas and deck chairs on weekends.

Anchoring next to the island Gavina is a real luxury; despite having to be cautious when the south-southwest-west-northwest winds threaten the coast. Its gentle waves caress the natural habitat, full of wild vegetation.

Cars remain in the parking lot if you were lucky to get a spot; the first 200 meters before reaching the sea can be tiresome, unlike walking the 4,000 meters from one end to another of Es Trenc.

Es Trenc is protected by the Balearic Islands’ Law of Natural Areas, which considers it a natural area of special interest. Other places on the island such as Cala Mesquida, S'Albufera and Cap Enderrocat were also declared areas of special interest.
