Holidays in Arenal de en Castell

Turquoise water, gorgeous beaches, and wonderful sea views: just three phrases that perfectly sum up holidays to  Arenal De En Castell, a Mediterranean paradise on the northern coast of Menorca. It's a little more off the beaten track and hidden away than resorts on the island's southern coast. However, the prize you get for trekking a little further afield is an authentic island atmosphere that's much more laid back than you might expect in the big resorts of Majorca or Ibiza.

With plenty of other attractions for you to explore within a half-hour journey of Arenal De En Castell, you can always try something different whenever you get tired of the beach, whether you're interested in visiting historic sights, or going on a long hiking session.

13-29°C. °C

For almost guaranteed beach weather, the best time to take your Arenal De En Castell holiday is from mid-June to mid-September, when you can expect daytime temperatures to rise to around 27°C to 30°C. During this time, night-time temperatures rarely fall below 19°C, which means it will be warm enough to stay outdoors until well after dark.

When you want to take a break from the beach during your holiday to Arenal De En Castell you could go on a day trip to the historic Menorcan capital, Mahon. It's home to beautiful shaded squares, 18th century architecture, and one of the world's deepest natural harbours. Or go to the impressive Favàritx Lighthouse, which dates back to the 1920s and is in the beautiful Parc Natural de S’Albufera des Gra, offering excellent views of the rocky coast.

The resort’s beach has Blue Flag status, which means it's as clean and safe as the best beaches in the world. This 650-metre stretch of fine sand is also sheltered from large waves, making it suitable for inexperienced swimmers and families with children. Rent a sun lounger, soak up the sun, get out a bucket and spade, or hire a water bike for a bit of action. When you're feeling a little hungry or thirsty, head to the beach-side restaurants for a tasty paella with a glass of wine while you enjoy those beautiful views of the bay.

Visit the pristine sandy beach of Cala Presili, which overlooks a beautiful emerald bay and can be accessed via the car park by Favàritx lighthouse, the Camí de Cavalls walking route or even by boat. 

One site that will definitely impress you on your holiday to Arenal De En Castell is the Cova des Coloms, a 100-metre deep natural cave on the southern coast. Then there's the Necrópolis de Cala Morell on the wilder northern coast, which is made up of over a dozen burial chambers dating back thousands of years.

Wine, bread, and olive oil are all highly prized in Menorca's diet, as are fruits and vegetables that are home-grown. Treat yourself to a scrumptious sweet pastry like Churros con chocolate, a finger-shaped doughnut that is dipped into a thick, hot chocolate sauce. At lunch, order the 'menu del dia' (menu of the day), which will often consist of a generous portion of fresh fish, and try a glass or two of Menorca's renowned wine. You'll also find a decent mix of restaurants serving other international cuisine such as Italian, British and Chinese.

ARENAL D'EN CASTELL IS BEST FOR ...

Beach lovers: Soak up the Spanish sunshine on one of the golden beaches. If you get a chance, take a stroll on the beautiful beaches of Cala Presili and Cala Tirant.

Explorers: If you’re feeling adventurous you can take a hike up Mount Toro, the tallest hill in all of Menorca. While you catch your breath, enjoy the stunning views around you. This holiday resort’s also surrounded by beautiful coastline paths and countryside walks for you to explore. 

Families: With a great beach location, you’ll keep the kids entertained making sandcastles all holiday. Why not take a family trip to Menorca’s capital city Mahon, as it’s only a 30 minute drive away.

WEATHER AND CLIMATE

Like the rest of Menorca and the Balearic Islands, this resort enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate. That means long, hot dry summers and very mild winters, with the sunniest weather in July and August. Sea temperatures are normally in the low to mid-20s °C from June until October, which is much warmer than what you would experience in the UK. In fact, it's common to see people swimming in the sea in November, when the water temperature is often several degrees higher than that off the English south coast in high summer.


GETTING AROUND...

By bus: there are bus services between here and Fornells, Macon, Cala Tirant and Es Marcadal, although check the timetables in advance of your Arenal De En Castell holiday as these may be subject to change.

By taxi: you can book a taxi from Arenal D'en Castell to the airport and to other destinations such as Mahon. Always agree your fare before you set off.

By car: hiring a car from Menorca Airport means you can explore the island at your own pace. Be warned, though, that the drive from the airport to the resort can take a little longer than you might expect, thanks to some slightly bumpy roads near the northern coast of Menorca. If you are not familiar with driving on narrow roads, it might be best to take a taxi from the airport, or book a transfer with your tour operator during your Arenal De En Castell holiday.


EVENTS...

Between June and September, Menorca celebrates a series of spectacular fiestas, which include special horse processions, concerts, fireworks, and plenty more family festivities.

One of the most popular is the Festes de Sant Joan in Ciutadella in late June, while another is the fiesta of Mare de déu de Gràcia in Mahon in early September.
