One of the reasons why we decided to go to Mallorca is that there’s so much to do and see on the island. I’ve already been to Mallorca with my family a couple of times when I was younger and knew that you need a car to get to the secret spots. Julia and I stayed in Palma every night but we went to different beaches every day and had seven days full of palm trees, ocean breeze, salty air and sun kissed hair. After a short trip to the stone beach Cala Deia in the north-west on the first day, we decided to drive to Es trenc, which is about 50 mins South-east from Palma.

The water is impossibly clear.

Es trenc is fairly isolated and has a wild and natural feel. There are 2km of golden sand and crystal clear water – and I would say it’s Mallorca’s answer to the Caribbean. It is quiet and undisturbed (except for the occasional nude person walking by who always seemed to be up in years).

It was our second day and we were mainly just tanning…
After a few hours dozing in the sun, we celebrated our good fortune with a fresh coconut and watermelon.

Eventually we decided to feed our growling bellies and went to the nearest restaurant for dinner.

And had some seafood paella by the sea… what more could you ask for?

After dinner, we headed back to Palma with a big smile on our face because an exciting day was waiting for us with loads of tapas and wine.
