Built around a near-perfect horseshoe bay, the resort is sublimely attractive, and its image has become symbolic of the island, used on many travel brochure covers.
Holidays to Arenal d'en Castell are best suited to families and couples looking for a relaxing beach escape in the Mediterranean sunshine. The resort is just 25km from the airport, so transfer times will take little more than half an hour.
Arenal d'en Castell holidays are all about the magnificent beach. Framed by rocky headlands, woodlands and sand dunes, only a small gap connects the bay to the sea itself; creating an idyllic saltwater lagoon effect. The curving golden sands radiate in the sunshine and shelve gently into warm and calm azure waters. The water is very shallow, making it ideal for families with small children. The amenities are excellent and include ample sun loungers and parasols where you can soak up the rays, while plenty of fun water sports are available. There is also a superb scuba diving centre based here.
Nightlife in Arenal den Castell is quite low-key, there are certainly no nightclubs, but there is a small selection of bars where you can unwind with a drink in the evenings. Dining is pretty varied, with something for most tastes, although the charming traditional towns that surround the resort offer a wealth of restaurants serving authentic local delicacies.
