El Arenal was one of Mallorca's first large scale tourist developments. It is still a popular resort for holidaymakers and offers all the convenience and amenities you would expect. The hotels and apartment blocks are close to the commercial centre which has a good selection of international bars and restaurants and a large variety of local and souvenir shops. The beach, Playa De Palma, is a long stretch of golden sand with a recently built promenade by the waterfront. The resort has a lively nightlife, offering a number of nightclubs and late bars, ideal for all those partygoers. It’s well-developed resort that can provide families a great beach holiday with plenty of nearby activities. El Arenal is also great for young couples and singles because of its party atmosphere after the sun sets - although this may make it a little too noisy for some. El Arenal is home to Europe’s largest water park, Aquacity. Families and young holidaymakers will enjoy the exciting pools, slides and rides.
