Es Trenc and Ses Salines: living in paradiseArchitecture Art Bconnectedmallorca Interior Design Real Estate
Today we discuss one of the most beautiful and well-known beaches on the island of Mallorca. Es Trenc. Renowned for its very long 2 km stretch of white sand and perfectly crystal-clear water. You might feel as if you have suddenly stepped into the Caribbean when you’re here, the picturesque scene is out of this world.
Located just off of the town of Ses Selines, a quaint coastal resort with traditional Mallorcan townhouses, with café’s on most corners.
It is a very relaxed area, all year round, although summer it definitely livens up with both tourists and locals making their way to experience the beauty this place has to offer. You’ll find a few chiringuitos (a beach restaurant or bar) plotted along the sand where you can relax, enjoy a fresh glass of mojito or crisp local wine.
While you’re in the area it is definitely a good opportunity to try one of the classic fish restaurants such as Can Pep, offering only the freshest of dishes with local fish caught in the area as well as the famous Paella which if you love seafood and rice this is a definite must-try. Enjoy your meal on their sunny terrace with unique panoramic views over the bay across to the islands of Cabrera which are just off of this side of Mallorca, a boat ride away.
