The stunning beaches on this part of the island have made Colonia Sant Jordi the most famous destination in the Balearic Islands. Es Trenc, on the west side of the town is the most well known of all the beaches in Mallorca because of its miles of golden sand, crystal clear water and national parkland behind.
The beach of Es Trenc, the coastal area around Colonia de Sant Jordi and the island of Cabrera , renowned for its marine tourism, form what has been called the ‘magical triangle’ of the Balearics, because of its beauty and tranquility.
Es Trenc and Es Estanys are the beaches on the west side of the town. Es Estanys is the area of beach closest to the town, and then Es Trenc stretches for 3000m of natural beauty. It is one of the few areas on the island to find sand dunes. In 1984 Es Trenc was declared a “Special Interest Natural Area”.
Es Dolç and Es Carbo are the beaches on the east of the town. Es Dolc is the area of beach closer to the port with Es Carbo a little further round the headland.
While Es Trenc is the most famous of the island’s beaches, Es Carbo and Ses Roquetes are preferred by those in the know. A 20 minute walk from Es Dolc will bring you to 1300m of virgin, ‘S’ shaped beach. If you don’t fancy the walk, there will be boats ready to take you from the port. There are no beach cafes here, just sand and solitude.
The Port is the main hub of the town, and is located on the east side of the town, less than a five minute walk from the hotel. Here you can relax in a cafe and gaze out across the boats and beaches of Es Dolç and Es Carbó.
There are restaurants, gift shops, banks, tourist information and your departure point for trips to the island of Cabrera. Heading from the port to the western side of the town, you pass the supermarket and pharmacy, and join the main road which also has cafes, restaurants and shops, head past the historic Salines, where they have been making salt since Roman times, and moments later are walking on the sand of Es Estanys towards the most famous of all the beaches: Es Trenc.
