Platja Des Trenc


Platja Des Trenc

Its name (in Spanish means “quebrada”) refers to the saltworks breaking the dune barrier of the coast. Oral tradition tells that in the mid-eighteenth century came a tsunami, originated after the Lisbon earthquake, which broke the dune cord that separated the open sea from the wetland.

This beach is the last large, undeveloped and well-preserved beach of Mallorca. Together with Es Salobrar from Campos, Es Trenc forms a protected area of ​​1,492 hectares. It is one of the busiest spaces during the late summer weeks.

Es Trenc has a fine white sand, a slight slope, a dune system that separates the beach from the salobral and the cultivation fields, and a later humid zone that gathers 171 species of migratory and sedentary birds. Nudism is also practiced here.

Its open waters to the south-southwest-west and northwest are crystal clear. The bottom is sand, seaweed and some small area of ​​stones, at a depth of four meters. The most suitable place to anchor is the old pier in the vicinity of S’Illa Gavina. This is the largest islet of the municipality of Campos, which preserves a prehistoric cave, also used by smugglers, and can be accessed on foot from Punta de sa Barraca de sa Cenra. The days that the wind blows west, Platja d’es Coto is the best option. Three nautical miles away is the nearest port facility, Port Colònia de Sant Jordi.
