The beach isn't the best beach that we've been to as it has a lot of washed up seaweed and poseidonia oceanica '' sea grass'' small round hairy balls looks like a kiwi along the beach so it looks like it could do with a clean plus the water has sharp rock shards in it that hurt your feet when you walk in the water, also looks black because of this, obviously this is nature. However it doesn't look very appealing and didn't see anyone swimming in it. Along the beach you have plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops to go in with very friendly workers. There were local shops on each corner to get snacks, drinks and the basics. There was a lot of hotels having building work done on them probably to improve them for the summer holidays, however this did affect things such as walking on pavements and not being fully able to see what cars are approaching. But i suppose if you go in the summer time the majority of the work should be done so this shouldn't affect you.

The beach was lovely and the sea shallow in front of the hotel. The usual tourist shops/restaurants on the main road. The promenade was a nice walk with free wifi along the route! We took the tourist train on a round trip along the full length of the bay, it took about an hour. It has a number of stops that some use as a bus service.

Made friends with a local shopkeeper who told us about a couple of good restaurants used by locals. Weather was very hot but a good excuse to sit in cafes and watch the world go by. Found the small, less commercial beach on the other side of the marina, worth a visit.

Beach very nice with yellow sand, gets busy but you will always find space for you. 5 minutes walk from hotel is the biggest Aquapark in Mallorca. Hotel Bahamas offers entrance ticket to Aquapark for one week for 28GBP per adult and 15 GBP per child under 12, what is very cheap if you are going to visit Aqua park more times. One day ticket normally costs 26GBP per adult and 17GBP per child. El Arenal is a nice resort with plenty of pubs and restaurants.

Please note: the comments above are the subjective opinions of customers and not of sunshine.co.uk Ltd

The beach

The Arenal beach is wide with fine white sand which gently slopes into the sea. It's just 200-metres in length though it's actually a continuation from the neighbouring resort of Playa de Palma where the beach stretches for over 4 km. This whole length of beach has 15 Balnearios, which are small beach huts featuring a kiosk, toilets and showers.

Facilities are good with areas to hire sun-loungers and parasols, and there's a wide range of watersports at hand with pedalos, paragliding and banana-boat rides. The promenade behind the beach is traffic free and lined with a good selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

Things to do

Aqualand water park situated on the outskirts of El Arenal offers a variety of water attractions with adrenaline chutes, children's play-areas and a relaxing lazy river, ensuring a fun-day out for all ages.

The resort also features a Jurassic Park themed crazy golf course and with 54-holes to try out it's definitely worth visiting more than once.

The city of Palma is a must-see with winding streets, historical sites, museums, pavement cafes and chic boutique shops Palma has plenty of places to explore and relax. Some of its major attractions include the gothic La Seu Cathedral, the Palace de L'Almudaina and the Castell de Bellver.

Out and about

A long promenade links the neighbouring resorts of Playa de Palma and Ca'n Pastilla, a pleasant walk with palm trees providing a respite from the sun, alternatively a tourist mini-train runs between these resorts during the summer months.

For exploring beyond the resort, transport links from Arenal to Palma are good, there are regular buses and plenty of taxis available.

Nearby attractions

The Palma Aquarium is found just outside Palma between Ca'n Pastilla and Playa de Palma, combining education and fun it's suitable for all ages and is a great place to learn all about marine life and more. There are 25 aquariums home to a wide variety of Mediterranean species, a further 24 with tropical fish, and the deepest shark tank in Europe. Outside there's a play-area for children, Mediterranean and jungle gardens.

The Marineland which is located in the resort of Portal Nous around 16 km away is a popular attraction for families with young children, the park features an aquarium with rays and sharks, and the shows include performing sea lions, parrots and dolphins.

For an enjoyable day out take the train from Palma to picturesque Soller and enjoy the scenic journey while seated in vintage carriages, a pleasurable and popular tourist attraction. Once in Soller you can extend your trip onto Port de Soller, where a vintage tram connects with the arrival of the train.
