Arenal d’en Castell is a self-contained modern resort, with a small supermarket, a few shops, and restaurants and bars. There is also a chemist and a bar just next to the beach. The coastline is dramatic and probably the best feature; in comparison to other Menorcan resorts, this one tends to look over-developed.
Arenal d’en Castell is located on the N coast, 14 mls N of Mahon and the airport. It is buit around a near-circular cove with steep slopes rising on all sides, backed by heathland and pine woods.
Arenal d’en Castell is a fairly lively resort, hence it is good for families, especially younger ones, and for couples. Not ideal for the elderly because of the steepness.
