Es Trenc is a long, paradisiacal beach of approximately 3 kilometers of white sand and transparent waters surrounded by dunes and pine trees, junipers and tamarinds. It is one of the virgin beaches still to be found in Mallorca. It is included in a protected area known as ANEI (Natural Area of Special Interest) that comprises the beach, the dunes, the bush, the salt beds and the croplands.
Platja d’es Trenc is 6.5 km away from Colònia de Sant Jordi. The name refers to the fact that the opening of the salt bed breaks up the dunes on the coast, and oral tradition speaks of a tsunami issuing from the Lisbon earthquake in the mid-18th century which broke through the dunes located between the open sea and the wetlands.
The open waters are crystal clear and the seabed consists of white sand, a bit of algae and occasional stones 4 m deep.
The beach may be accessed from several points. If we go there from Ses Salines we will find hills of salt extracted from artificial ponds. Within Es Trenc there is an area called Ses Covetes, where nudists converge, and that area leads to a stretch of sand known as Sa Rápita; there is also a pedestrian access from the namesake Nautical Club.
Beach umbrellas are a must in this beach because there is no natural shade. The water may be murky due to small algae concentrations but walking in a few meters it becomes transparent and a delight for swimming. A true paradise!
