Playa Es Trenc Nude Beach, Mallorca
Es Trenc, Mallorca - Unofficial
Playa Es Trenc
is a popular nudist beach in Mallorca. On busy days you will need to head right (as you face the sea) to find the naturist section. This beach of fine, golden sand is backed by dunes and scrubland. There are low rocky outcrops which shelve gently into the sea (which also seems to contain large quantities of seaweed!) Please see below for photos, detailed beach reports and directions. Nearby is the Skinny Dippers naturist retreat.

ES TRENC NUDE BEACH REPORTS:
Here are directions from the Rocamarina hotel in Cala D'or to Es Trenc. From the hotel, go to end of one-way street and turn right. At the next roundabout (about 100 yards) take first exit (right). Follow the road as it goes round a bend and up to a roundabout. Take second exit signposted "Porto Petra". Follow this road as it splits into a one-way road, round the bay and past the restaurant "Pavarotti". Turn right at the next junction heading for the town, "Alqueria Blanca". The road goes straight through this town and on towards a large town called, "Santanyi". Just before Santanyi, there is a turning right, which bypasses the centre and should be signposted "Palma". Follow this road, across the next roundabout and then take the first exit (right) at the next roundabout (there is a supermarket on the opposite side of the roundabout as you approach it). This road takes you towards a large town called "Campos" This road is quite long and straight. Just as you approach Campos, there are four blue windmills on your left, followed by another two windmills, one on each side of the road (if I remember right, one is blue and one is green). Just after these windmills is a turning left signposted, "Colonia de Saint Jordi" and "Es Trenc". Follow this road for a couple of miles, past the dairy with the smelly cows and across the next roundabout. You should now be on a dual carriageway road. When this dual carriageway ends, almost exactly a kilometre further is an old windmill base (no sails) with a sign for Es Trenc. Turn right and follow the narrow road past the salt lakes to the end, where you will find a carpark. Pay the man 5 euros and drive as far as you can to the front (best if you get there about 10.00am). Walk to the beach and turn right. It gets very crowded at the first beach bar so the best advice is to grab your sun beds as close as possible to the second beach bar. If you look back into the dunes at this point, you will find another, more upmarket restaurant just a short walk away. Take as little or as much clothes off as you dare and happy tanning! It should take you about 45 minutes from the hotel to the beach. - Brian C, KENT
I visited this beach on 5 April 2005. I followed the directions to the nudist section which I read in a guidebook and enjoyed a very warm sunny day. There were few nudists at that time, possibly the water was too cold for many folk. There are sheltered areas behind the beach with low scrub which affords protection from a cool wind and from any textiles walking along the shoreline. Unfortunately the naturist part of the very extensive bay is where seaweed gathers and is washed up on the sand as metre high collections. The seaweed looks as if it has been chopped up and is a small leafed variety not the long clinging variety. There is a good car park just behind the beach. Go to the beach, turn left for the naturist section, right for textiles. I cycled to the car park and chained the bike to wooden fencing.

My wife and I went on holiday to Majorca in 2003. Although we stayed at Carla Mondrago (noisy hotel but fantastic beaches) I had read about the nudist beach at Es Trenc. We found a taxi rank at Carla D'or which advertised the beach on a photo wall so we asked him to take us. As I had read there were not many facilities there I asked about the pick up. Niether of us spoke each others language but the helpful driver managed to inform us he would return at 4.00 pm.
The journey was good but as we drove through barren salt fields I was starting to have my doubts.
We eventually arrived at a large dirt, but well cleared car park. The size of it (supported by my construction industry backgroud) gave me some optomism because of it's size. Large.
We walked 400 metres, not advisable for a wheel chair but a group could possibly carry one over the distance, and eventually passed through the sandy/bushy edge of the beach.
Fantastic. We were greeted with a sandy, flat, beach extending to a very blue sea. As we walked towards the edge of the sea the geography became clear. We had come out in the middle of a 5km wide bay. The beach narows to 30/60 metres aroud the flanks, but are lined with sun loungers and two or three bar and food huts. These are roofed and serve very cold drinks for everyone.
In my pigeon acting I asked for the location of the nudist beach. As you face the sea it is to the right. It was all very civilised. The bushes and type of land use behind added to a sense of security. Everyone seemed to get on with enjoying the sun.
The water is like a lake. Very shallow for a long, long way and absolutely clear. Perfect for children of all ages.
I am suprised to read an article on this site which claims no facilities. I claim the opposite and cannot wait to go back. The taxi turned up fifteen minutes late but to us that was perfect. - Paul, Colchester
