Arenal d'en Castell

Arenal d'en Castell on the north-facing rugged coastline of Menorca is a purpose-built resort for holidaymakers. The town is centred on a golden Horseshoe bay that lies below the cliffs making it popular for young families, and couples who can partake in the Blue Flag awarded beach and sea.

In the holiday season, the added reassurance of lifeguards that are dotted along the shoreline keeps it safe for young and old alike.

There are a handful of supermarkets offering food, clothing, souvenirs and beachwear/inflatables.
