Car Hire Menorca Arenal d'en Castell


Arenal d’en Castell is a holiday resort located on the northern coast of Menorca, 20 km to the northwest of Mahon, the capital of Menorca. It can take around 40 minutes to reach the resort from the airport, mostly owing to the poor quality of the roads leading the way. Thus it is recommended to pre-book a car or taxi for the journey unless this has been arranged by the holiday provider as part of the holiday package.

Upon reaching the resort, it is possible to use the public transport system to go around the resort or to travel back and forth from Mahon. A bus service tends to operate in the summer months and it is possible to get timetables either from the bus stands or over the internet.

The resort itself is highly popular with British tourists and is a great relaxing place to enjoy a quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Shaped in the form of a horse shoe is the bay of Arenal d’en Castell, a picturesque location. It is a favourite of families with little children because the water is shallow and safe for enjoyment. The beach is another great feature of the resort with good quality of sand, and opportunities to participate in a range of water sports.

The bay is surrounded by beautiful cliffs, and it is often possible to get great views of these from your accommodation, depending on where it is located.

Because of the frequency of British visitors, it is possible to buy many UK branded goods, especially food items which are useful for those staying in self-catered accommodation.

Make it a point to visit the Coves Noves Centre, which is a brilliant commercial establishment, in essence, a centre focusing on designer label outlets and modern shopping. It is at good proximity to the beach.

Because of its location on the north coast, this resort sometimes experiences heavy winds in the summer months although it is not something to worry about. The sea is also rather rough but abundant in supply of some great fish varieties. There are environmental laws in place to protect the area and allow the fish to survive over the years.

Mount Toro is the tallest point of the island and can be seen from the resort. Here you will also find the Mare de Deu del Toro, which is in fact a 17th century sanctuary, an inspiring attraction.

Evening entertainment is mostly based around hotel facilities. However, it is still possible to socialise in a few of the music bars where people come together to have a few drinks and make acquaintances, but do not expect to find a major clubbing scene or nightlife as one would normally expect on holiday.
