Arena D'en Castell is located on the north east coast of Menorca within an easy bus ride of other towns to visit. Arenal den Castell is the fourth largest resort on Menorca and is on the eastern side of Menorca where most of island's attractions are located.
The resort of Arenal d'en Castell, along with it's nearest neighbour Son Parc with its golf course and tennis facilities, are the largest holiday resorts on the north east coast. Arenal den Castell is a mixture of hotels catering for packaged holidays, commercial apartments and private villas and appartments attracting the independent self catering traveller.
The bay at Arenal d'en Castell is as close to a near perfect horseshoe as you can get. The headlands on the waters' horizon close in so much so that you think you might be standing by a large saltwater lake. While some areas behind the beach has been developed, the varying ground height levels means its more natural than it might first appear in photographs. The eastern end of the resort and beach is more naturally intact with wooded areas and sand dunes and is where most of the private villas and apartments are located.
The resort's geography defines it's character- There is a flat headland at the eastern end called Punta Grossa which links to the eastern, woodland end of the beach with it's sand dunes. Towards the western end the land rises with a steep valley splitting the resort- here the resort is terraced with facilties on about three distinct levels.
