No beach in Europe exerts such fascination on its visitors as the Es Trenc. This makes Es Trenc one of the most popular beaches in the Balearic Islands, if not the whole of Europe. Given its white sand and turquoise waters, it awakens many visitors a sense of Caribbean flair, even if the palms are missing.
Nevertheless, the pine forests exert their very own exotic charm.
The shallow entry into the sea again increases its attractiveness not only for families with children. Especially for nudists fans the beach reveals a very special charm thanks to its seclusion and spaciousness.
