Arenal d’en Castell beach in Es Mercadal is one of the most beautiful developed corners of the Minorcan coast. The beach, about 650 metres long and 20 metres wide, is in the form of a shell and has clear, shallow water. There is also has a small area of pines on the right side and its narrow entrance from the sea protects it from adverse weather conditions, calming the waves so swimmers can enjoy a peaceful, relaxing dip. The cliffs flanking the beach allow a panoramic view of the whole beach and the great bay beyond.
The urban development also has a wide range of restaurants, bars, hotels and supermarkets, as well as an interesting sports area.go back
