Location

Situated 20km from Mahon in the North east, Arenal d'en Castell is an attractive purpose-built resort set on Minroca's dramatic northern coastline. The resort cascades down the steep slopes of a near circular crescent-shaped bay and is backed by sand dunes and swathes of verdant pine woodlands. Lively Arenal d'en Castell is particularly popular with families and young couples.

Package holiday transfer time 30 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes

 

The peak of Monte Toro offers an ideal vantage point from which to take in the delightful scenery of the island. Move further north and you can get away from the modern world at the Bay of Fornells, a fishing village renowned for its authentic Minorcan cuisine, fresh from the sea. And what better place to relax at the end of the day than the Queen of Bays, Cala Galdana, widely considered to be one of the most beautiful coves in the western Mediterranean.

Beaches

Without a doubt, the main attraction of Arenal d'en Castell is its glorious beach. Made up of soft, golden sands it curves around the long sweep of the bay and offers safe bathing for children and has a good range of watersports including pedalos water skiing, hire motorboats and windsurfing.

The water is shallow, ideal for children and there is also a first aid post.
