Earlier this month, around 100 tourists had to be brought to safety after a natural fire behind the same beach in the southeast of the island.

The sun worshipers were led to a nearby parking lot after a pine-covered area went up in flames.

The alarm sounded on August 14 around 11:30 AM.

The road to the beach was temporarily closed until about an hour later the fire was brought under control during an operation with an airplane, two helicopters and about a dozen firefighters on the ground.

Es Trenc is the longest virgin beach in Mallorca with approximately two miles of white sand and crystal clear water.
