El Arenal is an idyllic stretch of white sand beach bordering the blue-green waters of the Bay of Palma. Relax in this very enjoyable place to lie in the sun. El Arenal is also known as one of Mallorca’s party capitals and can serve as an ideal base for trips to nearby beaches.
Stretching 690 feet (210 meters) along the coast, El Arenal’s soft white sands curve gently toward the sea. Try paragliding, Jet Skiing or paddleboating on the open water. You’ll find a number of small beach huts, called balnearios, along the beach where you can relax with a drink.
Be sure to claim a spot on the beach late in the afternoon to watch the sunset. Don’t leave without experiencing the beach’s buzzing nightlife scene. In the past, the beach catered toward young, single German tourists. You’ll find many of the bars and clubs are still geared toward this crowd. Although the beach also attracts families and couples, most visitors come with the goal of partying late into the night.
