What to Expect at Trenc Badestrand
A gorgeous beach, unlike most others on the island of Mallorca. The experience is much more traditional, meaning that it provides a long stretch of sand. To get here, just go to Es Trenc and then walk down to the left.
South east part of Mallorca. It is about an hour drive from Palma, but definitely worth it to make the effort. You will need to drive down some scary thin and windy roads.
There is a big lot that you pay 7 euros to park in. At the busiest times it fills up and they will close off the road saying the lot is full.
We went on a Saturday afternoon in July and they had the sign up, but there were still a few rows of open spots in the lot. We think they do this to save the spaces for locals.
What Else To Do In The Area
If you want the traditional beach experience on Mallorca, Trenc Badestrand is a great choice to avoid the worst of the crowds. The water is at a perfect temperature, so I could hang out in it all day.
Full guides on my favorite Mallorca beaches
I have visited over 30 Calas (or beaches) in Mallorca and have full guides about all of them. From which ones are best to the parking (it can be a nightmare) to how to get down to the actually beach as a lot of them require hikes.
CALO DES MORO – This is probably the most beautiful cove beach I have ever seen. It was crowded when we went (high season) but if you go during the spring or early fall it won’t be nearly as crowded.
CALA S’ALMUNIA – Amazing cliff jumping spots here. Not too high, not too small. It was just perfect in my opinion. This beach is literally a 5 minute walk from Calo des Moro. Don’t miss it! It’s beautiful!
CALA DES BORGIT – Amazing, lesser known beach. This may have been my favorite Cala we visited. It is much lesser known and wasn’t nearly as crowded as the others.
ES TRENC – Lesser known but amazing! Es Trenc is more of a traditional beach than the others on the list (no rocks or cliffs around) but more out of the way from most of the touristy things. It was another one of my favorite beaches. The water was so blue, and the sand so white! Trust me, you don’t want to miss this hidden gem.
