Our location: Colonia de Sant Jordi
Colonia de Sant Jordi is one of the most notable ecological spaces on the island and a singular enclave within the Mediterranean. The Government of the Balearic Islands has declared part of the municipality a Natural Area of Special Scenic and Rural Interest. The beach of Es Trenc, Ets Estanys, Es Dolç, Es Carbó, the coastal area and the island of Cabrera form a magical triangle in the Balearics, combining the beauty of the coast with that of the countryside. From the centre of Colonia de Sant Jordi one can discover the most beautiful group of unspoilt, heavenly beaches in the Mallorcan ecosystem. Do not miss the opportunity to rent your holiday apartments Majorca beach.
Es Trenc is considered one of the most famous and best beach in Mallorca. Also, it is the last large beach of Mallorca which is still unspoilt and well preserved.
Es Trenc is approx more than two kilometres of fine-grained white sand, crystal clear and clean water with a gentle slope.
The beach is tremendously popular all through the summer, so try to avoid visiting the beach in the weekends.
Es Dolc is a classic Mallorca beach – beautiful turquoise waters, white-sand, rolling sand dunes and a chilled-out atmosphere. It’s far enough away from the major resort towns to have remained pristine, and it’s an easy walk from a collection of other unspoilt beaches. The relaxed resort of Colonial Sant Jordi is approximately a ten-minute walk away.
Playa Es Carbo Beach spreads from Cala Delfí up to Punta de Na Tianeta, in the shape of “S”, and is much frequented by the neighbors of the Cologne who move away from the agglomerations produced by the tourism.
To the south of the Cologne of Sant Jordi (Mallorca), towards Cap Salines, we find the set of the most paradisiac beaches of Majorca.
Cabrera (Latin: Capraia) is one of the minor Balearic Islands belonging to Spain, just south of Mallorca, in the Mediterranean Sea, at approximately 39° 9′ N, 3° E.
It is the largest of a small archipelago of islands and islets, including (from south to north) the Estells de Fora, L’Imperial, Cabrera itself, Illa de ses Bledes, Na Redona, Conillera, L’Esponja, Na Plana, Illot Pla, Na Pobra, and Na Foradada.
The whole archipelago is a Spanish national park (“Parque Nacional del Archipiélago de Cabrera”). Cabrera is a cruising destination, and boats may anchor in the island’s natural harbour. Boats may not anchor anywhere else due to the fragile marine life around the island. Many species survive on Cabrera that are rarely found around the Balearics, such as dolphins and sea snails. Diving is strictly forbidden and a licence must be sought, in advance, from the government, for a one day
Thus, excursions to the island are a rare event and are treasured by the diving community. Hiking is available, and there is a tourist information office, a museum, and a 14th-century castle as well as a gift shop and cafe. The park covers 100 km² (13 km² land) but attracts few visitors due to its remoteness. The permanent population is below 100.
