Not a great beach if you have a buggy and young children as down hill walk with steps to beach so hard journey back uphill to carpark!
Beach has lots of seaweed/grass washing up on beach children didn’t like it 🤦‍♀️ and had a smell.
Plenty of sand for sandcastles and beds with umbrellas to hire.
Small cafe/bar for drinks icecreams and snacks.
We got there 10ish by time we left at 13.00 it was heaving and cars were queuing to get into carpark!

Stunning beach with Azure sea that was the best I’ve swam in. We visited on a Sunday at the end of July so it was bound to be busy, and while there was not an inch of sand to put a towel on, and the bins were attracting swarms of wasps / the sea was heaven. No one seemed to be swimming further than their waists so beautiful and empty once you leave the hoards of sun worshippers behind. Lovely fish swimming between our toes.

Fantastic cove about ten minutes walk from the car park.
One of the beaches of the Mondrago park, wide, with lifeguard and beach bar although basic and expensive. Connected to Cala Mondrago by a beautiful walkway that offers beautiful views. That is precisely one of its charms.

Beautiful beach but very busy. Bit of a drive to get to the national park, but parking, although €6 for the day, is plentiful with shady trees to park under. It’s a bit of a walk down steep steps to get on to the beach, but it’s worth it. The sea is crystal clear and the sand is white. There’s a little beach bar and a few parasols and beds to rent, but basically you have to bring your own amenities with you. It’s a perfect shallow beach for children, but you need to get down early for a good spot next to the sea.

Large beach, beautiful. A great walk between S'Amarador and Cala Mondrago. The water is just magical, lots of fish. The beach doesn't have much there. I advise an umbrella and any food and drinks you would need for the day.
Definitely worth a day out.

What a treat from start to finish. Big parking lot and a lovely 1/2 mile hike through the pine forest to the beach. The beach itself—stunning—with glistening white sand beside warm, shallow turquoise water. Not crowded even after opening from lockdown. Many boaters anchor in the cove for the day, creating a most picturesque setting. They have a cold drinks kiosk right on the beach and toilets. No seaside showers though, so bring a few bottles of water for a rinse-off after your swim. You can walk trails in the forest or nearer the water.

Because now more people will know about it!!!
Actually, so what I found it through a newspaper report that probably had millions read it. It was recently Europe's Best Beach.

And I can see why. Tricky to get to, not signposted; do your homework before going and print out instructions from one of the map websites.

But there is plenty of parking, a 5 minute walk away and there is a even a beach bar (er...on the beach!). You can also walk round to another smaller bay with a a hotel there.

The sea is bluer than something very blue and the the beach soft and almost white. Just terrific.

Because the roads are so small it means coaches would not make it down there. I'm sure at some point this place will expand but I hope not. so glad I made the very long drive from Alcudia to go here.

The only reason this is not a five is because when we went there were quite a few jellyfish around. I think if you go in the height of summer this is not a problem. We went in September (mid to late). If the sea is crowded then there will be none around (as word gets around). If it is quite empty, pay attention or do not go too deep. some nice snorkelling closeby too. I want to give it five but seeing the massive sting down a fellow sea lovers back after a few minutes in the sea, maeans it is only a four. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN EVERY DAY.

Surrounded by pine trees and rock outcrops this place is amazing. Best beach in Europe? I'm not telling....

I have been to es trenc at least 12 times. What I normally do is I hire a car to explore the near by beaches and island than on my way back to the hotel, I always stop over at es trenc so I can enjoy the beautiful view and the sun set.
I definitely recommend this beach.
However, the only downside is, they used to have some lovely beach kiosky which used to serve an amazing food with affordable prices, which unfortunately was demolished by the government. So, if you want to spend a day at es Trenc beach, make sure you take lots of drinks and food with you.

Large, white sandy beach......crystal clear, safe, turquoise water.....a backdrop of trees and sand dunes....a beach bar with cold drinks and snacks....what more could you ask for? Well, actually, just one thing please. Better toilet facilities! Two portaloos with eye-burning stench was a blot on an otherwise perfect experience. Do visit here, it's beautiful...

After reading about the 5 eur parking cost, i was happily surprised that the booth was unmanned due to the Christmas weekend, and we could drive in for free.
Note that the beach is connected to the next cove (Mondrago beach?) by a concrete boardwalk. This other beach is not as secluded, having a hotel and beach bar nearby. In retrospect, you could probably drive to that hotel, use their parking and circumvent the parking cost too.
