Arenal D'en Castell

Made for relaxing

Arenal d’en Castell is a purpose-built resort on Menorca’s northern coast. The place hasn’t overdone things, though – it’s really just hotels and a few bars and restaurants. Location wise, it’s surrounded by woodland and comes on a cliff-side setting, with a small train to help get you round the place. It’s also got a rather lovely Blue Flag beach.

Family-friendly beach

Set in a pretty bay, the beach serves up plenty of soft, golden sand. And the warm water is shallow and perfectly paddle-friendly. You’ve also got a lifeguard on duty and a play park, so it’s particularly good for families. At the western end, you’ll find a few bars and restaurants, while to the east you’ve got a snack bar. There’s also a dive site on standby, too.

Sports options

Away from the beach, there are tennis courts near the resort’s Coves Noves shopping centre. Meantime, golf players have got Menorca’s only 18-hole course at Son Parc, 10 minutes away. Here there’s a putting green and floodlit driving range, plus an outdoor bar-restaurant with knockout views over the green.

Daytrips to Mahon

Thirty minutes’ drive gets you to the capital, Mahon. Here, you’ve got the island’s biggest museum and an 18th-century gin distillery to look round. The old town’s a good place for picking up local pottery, while the pavement cafés on the main square make a good lunch spot.
