Description of Es Trenc Beach Ride (only available in November)
After breakfast, we get ready to start our adventure. We leave with a mini bus to Sa Rapita (Campos). 20 minutes by car from our finca.
Sa Rapita was a small fishermen village and is probably the closest town to one of Mallorca’s best beaches and Natural park. With over 3-kilometres of fine white sand, this area has been compared to the Caribbean because of its lush vegetation and crystal clear blue waters.
Once the horses have been tacked in Sa Rapita, we will ride to the natural beach of Es Trenc. This beach stretches from Sa Rapita along the coastal strip to the larger town of ‘Colonia Sant Jordi’. After some trots and gallops, we reach a small village called ‘Ses Covetes’. Riding through this village we will arrive to Es Trenc natural park and beach. We hear the sound of the sea beyond the golden sand, marvel at the sand dunes and swallows flying above us on the blue sky.
Once leaving the beach, we ride through a bush to reach a path that will take us to the salt mountains, where we enjoy fantastic views of the local flora and fauna.
The extraordinary environmental value of this natural area is enshrined in various protection measures, among them Natural Area of Special Interest (ANEI), Special Conservation Zone, and Special Bird Protection Zone. It also forms part of the EU Natura 2000 network.
In the ‘Salobrar’ (set of constructed ponds linked to the sea by a channel of seawater), close to Es Trenc beach, is dedicated to the extraction of salt. This large natural area (330 hectares) is populated by over 170 species of birds, as well as numerous traditional plants. Along the trail we will see several birds, flamingos, frogs and a variety of plants and flowers.
Underneath shady trees, our picnic is waiting for us. Enjoy a typical lunch with a country view and get to know some curiosities of Mallorca explained by our guide.
After lunch, we start our ride back to the departing point where we will find the mini bus. Once back at the finca, we will have time to relax and have dinner.
Riding: approximately 4 hours
