Your guide to El Arenal holidays
El Arenal is a modern getaway with all the trimmings of a 21st-century holiday destination. The largest water park on the island, Aqualand El Arenal, is on the outskirts of the resort, easy accessible by local transport with tour operators running trips here from all over the island. The park is very popular and has new attractions opening this summer 2021. With existing favourites like the rapids, Black Hole and Kamikaze slides, as well as the wave pool and Dragonland for the little ones, the water park offers something for all ages.
If a more natural water experience is more to your taste, the Palma Aquarium in the capital city is a fabulous marine ecosystem. The 55 aquariums include aquatic animals and plants from over 700 species living in all the major oceans of the world. The wonder does not stop with your eyes though, with interaction, surprises, shows and educational elements for those who want to live the experience even more.
If you’re looking for a beach holiday in Majorca then an El Arenal holiday is the break for you. The resort lies at the eastern end of a 6-kilometre stretch of pristine golden sand joined to the local resorts of C'an Pastilla and Playa de Palma. The long, sandy beach features kilometres of sand sloping into the clean, shallow water with a scattering of palm trees giving it a postcard-perfect look. The beach has been awarded the internationally recognised Blue Flag for cleanliness, water quality and facilities. The beach is flanked by a majestic promenade running the length of the sand – it’s wide and traffic-free to give an enjoyable walk between resorts. A mini-train is available as a convenient alternative for tired legs.
Beach sports are on offer but a noticeable feature of the coastline are the regular open-air huts selling drinks and snacks. Known as 'balnearios', the 15 huts have clean toilets and showers and friendly kiosks or bars selling cold drinks and snacks. They are unmissable stopping points on a casual walk along the promenade and easily recognised landmarks and meeting points.
