Arenal Very Popular With Young German

Aug 17, 2007
The resort of Arenal, is situated along the central south coast of Majorca, approximately 10km east of the capital Palma.

There are three resorts joined by a wide pedestrian promenade. It is now impossible to determine where one resort ends and the other begins.

The resort lies at the eastern end of a 6km stretch of beach running from Can Pastilla, through Playa de Palma, and finally on to Arenal in the east.

During the summer months, Arenal and parts of Playa de Palma are very popular with young German 18 to 30s who are looking for all night clubs and bars and is certainly not suitable for a family holiday or anyone wishing to get some sleep before dawn. The town itself has a very strong German influence, with many of the numerous bars and restaurants only targeting the German tourist. Whilst the British Euro spending visitor is never turned away, you may however, feel somewhat uncomfortable in such a German dominated environment.

The weather is hot in the summer months and cooler in the winter months.

Arenal has over the years continued to expand its influence over this part of the island, and we wonder how much longer Playa de Palma and Can Pastilla will be able to resist this German invasion.

On a more positive note the beach here is very popular and shelves gently into the sea, although regrettably in recent years, despite having the internationally recognised blue flag for its facilities, cleanliness, and water quality, it has unfortunately also had a bit of a problem both from litter and Lookie Lookie Men selling genuine designer watches which are almost certainly fake, and may not even be working at all. However to be fair the Council are addressing the problem.

Finally, one feature of this stretch of coastline which you cannot fail to miss is the 15 or so huts which run the full length of the resort. These huts are small beach huts which usually have toilets, showers and a kiosk selling cold drinks and snacks. During your stay here, they will undoubtedly prove to be a useful aid to navigation around the resort and by the end of your holiday, you will inevitably be telling others have you been to the bar in front of hut 3 or the best place to catch the bus is at hut 2 etc.

The weather is hot in the summer months and cooler in the winter months.
