The beach in general

S’Arenal holiday resort
S’Arenal is one of the older resorts in Mallorca and has for many years been popular with German tourists in particular. A number of restaurants and cafés are therefore also targeted at German guests, as are the bars Megapark and Bierkoenig, each of which can have several thousand guests during live entertainment.
In recent years, S’Arenal has slowly become more and more international, especially the popular area around the marina and the beach. The same applies to the beautiful seafront, which stretches many kilometers towards Palma de Mallorca. It is on this seafront that the 15 famous Balneario 1 to Balneario 15 beach bars are located.
It is also in S’Arenal that you find the large Aqualand El Arenal water park. One of the two largest water parks in Mallorca with a myriad of water slides, wave pool and many other rides for children of all ages.
