El Arenal in Mallorca Playa de Palma
Discover Arenal in Mallorca, also known as Playa de Palma. Hotel, restaurants, activities for the whole family and much more.
El Arenal or s'Arenal de Llucmajor is one of the most visited beaches on the island of Mallorca. Partly because of its 4.6 km of fine white sand, but also because of the nightlife and leisure activities it offers visitors.
The origin of El Arenal in Mallorca is that of an old fishing village in the 70s. Since then, however, it has become more and more internationally famous. Especially among British and German tourists.
At the end of the 1990s the entire promenade in front of the beach was remodelled, making it a very pleasant area for runners, skaters and people who go for walks with their pets along the Playa de Palma or s'Arenal. Also on this remodelled promenade are the 15 beach bars (known as balnearios) that offer all kinds of food and drinks to visitors.

EL ARENAL BEACH
The main attraction of the Arenal area in Mallorca is undoubtedly its white sandy beach that runs along more than four kilometres of coastline, which makes it perfect to visit in a group or with the family.
The slope of the beach is very low, so you can enter the sea for a good distance without any problem. In addition, it has no currents, making it a very safe beach for children and the elderly.
Playa de el Arenal is also known by many as Playa de Palma, as approximately half of its surface area belongs to the municipality of Palma and the other half to the municipality of Llucmajor.
