The Beaches of Mallorca
By Viator, July 2013
Feast your eyes on the brilliant blue waters of this two-kilometer-long southern shoreline. Not attached to any resort, Es Trenc beach offers a more remote seaside getaway than others, but still with all the amenities of larger beaches: lifeguards, restrooms, restaurants, and sun bed rentals. Adding to its off-the-beaten-track flare are the nearby protected sand dunes and wet lands (situated behind the beach), where you can spot wildlife and, during cooler months especially, a host of migrating birds.
Get an even better view of Es Trenc’s crystalline shores on a Mallorca Cruise and Snorkeling trip, during which you can spend your day swimming in the seas, spying the underwater world beneath you, and lunching aboard a catamaran.
You’ll have to work for the treasure that awaits you at Sa Calobra, though, as this isn’t a beach that you can easily stumble upon. To get there, you must traverse twisting mountainous roads before eventually arriving at the northwestern cove. But the journey doesn’t end there: First you’ll discover a pebbly beach, but the real reward sits beyond a rocky and well-lit tunnel through which you must trek before arriving at its shores. Note that while you may find paradise along this far-flung beach, that you won’t, on the other hand, find any proper facilities (unless you return back through the tunnel).
Cala Formentor Beach
Set upon a backdrop of pine trees is this one-kilometer-long but typically only eight-meter-wide beach. Along its shores, you can find shade under the trees, or venture into the shallow waters, even renting jet ski or pedal boats for a little more offshore action. Or, see a different side of the beach by arriving via boat on a Panoramic Mallorca Boat Trip to Formentor Beach. During your cruise, you’ll coast the waters off the Menorca Cape, Coll Baix, Pinar Cape and Bay of Pollensa, before enjoying some swimming and sunbathing time at Formentor.
While you can arrive at many of the island’s shorelines via boat or of course car, you can add more adventure to the journey by going on an independent Scooter Tour of Mallorca. With your two-wheeled rental, you set the itinerary, covering as much of the island, and of course the beaches, as you wish.
