Visit the Relaxing Es Trenc

Es Trenc

Often referred to as Balearics’ answer to the Caribbean, Es Trenc Beach is a popular, unspoilt sunspot on Majorca’s southern coast.

Es Trenc Beach has a slightly away-from-it-all feel, as it’s not attached to a resort like most beaches on the island. It’s a 2-kilometre stretch of white sand that gently slopes into clear, shallow water.

You’ll find plenty of sunbeds and parasols to hire along the 20-metre wide shoreline and lifeguards are on duty throughout the day. Plus, you’ve got a handful of seafront bars and restaurants.

Es Trenc is popular with naturists, which means the beach is a little quieter than most. That said, it’s still pretty popular and can get busy in the height of summer.

Backed by wetlands and sand dunes, Es Trenc Beach more than lives up to its title as one of the best in Majorca.

Majorca Roadtrip – A North East Adventure

Majorca

Planning a holiday in Majorca? Spend your time creating the most memorable experiences of your life exploring the north-east coast of the island by car. Start your day at Manacor, renowned as the centre of Majorca`s pearl industry. Continue along the Ma-4020 to Porto Cristo, a fishing village close to both the Caves del Drac and the Coves dels Hams. Take a tour of either cave, notable for their stalactites, stalagmites and subterranean lakes, or enjoy driving around the safari zoo, a great place for lunch.

Continue driving toward the large resort, Cala Millor, and the quieter, medieval community of Son Servera, which lies at the foot of Muntanya de Calicant. Next stop is Capadera, dominated by a castle from the Middle Ages. Close by, Cala Mesquida has a protected beach, home of a large cormorant population.

And then end your busy day in bliss, by admiring the pretty town of Arta from its fort on a hill.

If this sounds like your kind of holiday you might want to consider our car rental service.

Going Down The Beach to Surf – Playa de Palma to be WiFi Zone

Posted on: February 10th, 2014 by admin No Comments

Playa de Palma

Visitors to the beautiful beach of Playa de Palma, Mallorca, will soon be able to connect to local WiFi to use their electronic devices.

The plan, a joint project between the Palma City Council and private company MallorcaWiFi, aims to turn the 7km stretch of beach into a WiFi zone. Holidaymakers will be able to use the free wireless service to connect to the internet instead of using expensive roaming data tariffs.

Mallorca WiFi has invested 300,000 euro in the project, which will be implemented in three phases. The first phase will be in operation this holiday season and will cover the beach area from Cala Estancia to Arnal de Llucmajor. Visitors will be able to access the service 365 days a year, and it is hoped the scheme will encourage ‘smart tourism’.
