The Es Trenc beach is one of the most popular in Mallorca, offering an expanse of shimmering white sand that’s perfect for play and relaxation. Es Trenc is located a short drive from the village of Campos in the south of the island.

2. Platja de Muro

The Blue Flag beach of Platja de Muro is situated between Alcudia and C’an Picafort and is a perfect beach for kids to play in the sand or sea, as its shallow waters stretch quite a way, due to the sandy shelving.

The beach at Cala Mesquida is popular for surfing as waves are much bigger in this location. The beach is surrounded by sand dunes and situated in the north-east of the island.

5. Puerto Pollensa

The Puerto Pollensa beach is around 6km distance from the town of the same name and immensely popular with holidaymakers and tourists. The scenic mountains surrounding the beach and azure waters of the ocean give it a fairytale appearance that’s sure to be a hit with anybody.

6. Cala Formentor

The playa at Cala Formentor is over 1km in length, however, it’s only about 8m in width, so there’s not a good deal of room for lounging at the height of the season. The crystal clear sea water in this area makes it a wonderful place for swimming and snorkelling.

7. Cala Mondrago

The snorkelling fraternity in Mallorca appreciate all the benefits of swimming from the rocks at popular Cala Mondrago beach. There is a sandy beach for relaxing and playing, too. So this beach offers everything for a perfect day out. It’s located close to Cala d’or and can be accessed by train, bus or car.

best resorts in majorca

Majorca is a first-rate destination for those of us who enjoy fun, relaxation, or even a combination of the two, on an idyllic beach. If the waterfront is an important consideration when booking a holiday, here are five of the best Majorcan beaches that could be a perfect fit for you.

Cala Llombards
On the South-East coast of Santanyi, this somewhat secluded beach is ideal for families with young children, due to its shallow waters. The perfectly clear water means it’s a good place to take your snorkel! Sun loungers and parasols are available for relaxing on the fine sand, and there’s also a beach bar at this relatively undiscovered gem.

Playa de Muro
Another family favourite with good stretches of shallow water is Playa de Muro, in the region of Alcudia. Displaying a blue flag of cleanliness, the large range of surrounding bars, restaurants, and facilities make this lengthy range of soft, golden sand an ideal choice for families of all ages.

Cala Mesquida
In the North-East region of Arta, lies the rather unique Cala Mesquida with its desert-like conditions! Boasting a large amount of sand dunes, the gently shelving sand leads into crystal clear seawater. You can try out a little windsurfing here before relaxing in one of the welcoming beach bars.

Cala Deia
Deia is a truly picturesque village near Soller, on the North-West coast. A small, secluded cove sits at the foot of a cliff, and although the beach here is shingle, the rock fringed bay provides the illusion of basking on a desert island! The azure waters are perfect for snorkelling, and there are a couple of very authentic beach bars and fish restaurants.

Es Trenc
Returning to the South of the island, this popular beach is local to Palma, and is home to dreamy white sands and shimmering turquoise waters. There is a restaurant and a bar here which makes it a great place for a perfect summer day. In the cooler months, this beach is a magnet for migrating birds. An all-year-round choice for anyone.

I hope you find the above usefull. If you wish to hire a vehicle to get around and see these great beaches goto for full details.

Two Beaches in Majorca Voted Amongst The best in Spain

Posted on: July 16th, 2014 by admin No Comments


Spain has long been known as an excellent destination for a beach vacation and a recent survey by the comparison site Trivago showed that the island of Majorca is one of its top locations for this. The survey ranked the best beaches in Spain, with two in Majorca making it into the top 10.

Playa de Muro came in at number 3 on the list, with this beach stretching to a distance of around 6km. Its waters and sand have a Blue Flag rating to show they are in pristine condition and its length and out of town location means it never gets too crowded.

Cala Millor beach (as seen above) was ranked 7th in the survey and this is another Blue Flag stretch of sand. It is around 1km long, with its picturesque white sand and turquoise waters offering the chance to relax in the sun or enjoy some fun water sports.

Seaweed Clears Up Ready for Summer

Posted on: May 12th, 2014 by admin No Comments


Some visitors, who were looking to relax on Mallorca’s beaches this Easter, had a bit of a rude awakening when their tranquillity was interrupted by diggers removing copious amounts of seaweed.

Normally, the seaweed that builds up over the winter is cleared before the tourist season is in full swing. But, this hasn’t been the case this year.

Subsequently, complaints have been made, by both residents and tourists in Es Trenc and Camp de Mar, concerning the brown seaweed that has been piled up by the excavators. These complaints in Camp de Mar in particular have resulted in an investigation, as officials and two business heads from the clean-up company involved are looking into the matter.

Luckily, as the diggers have now finished their work, Camp De Mar is a seaweed free zone ready for summer.

If subathing on a tranquil, seaweed-less beach for the summer sounds good to you, take a look at our Majorca car rental deals.

Visit the Relaxing Es Trenc

Posted on: February 21st, 2014 by admin No Comments

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.
