A resort for all reasons, and seasons, in S'Arenal

A white sand beach, bright sunshine, and warm Mediterranean waters combine pleasantly when you have a S'Arenal vacation rental. This popular beach resort, also called El Arenal, occupies a sheltered bit of coastline south of Palma, the capital city of Majorca, the largest of Spain's Balearic Islands. Here you can enjoy watersports and swimming, or stroll the miles-long strand. There are cultural attractions for sightseeing, spots for kids or whole families to have fun, lots of locations for retail therapy, and dining options from simple to upscale.

Activities on and off the strand in S'Arenal

The 3.7-mile white sand beach connecting S'Arenal to nearby resort towns is a fine place to take your daily exercise, whether it's jogging, walking, roller-blading, or biking. People-watching is a major activity here, as are swimming, fishing, boating, and watersports, plus restaurants and nightlife. On Thursdays, stroll through S'Arenal's open-air street market—just follow the crowds. For a more serious shopping adventure, head into the capital city of Palma, a short cab ride away. For family-friendly fun, visit the Aqualand Waterpark in S'Arenal, which includes a mini-zoo and children's farm with parrot shows.

Beach fun, aquarium, and sightseeing for all

A S'Arenal vacation rental puts you near the main attraction—that long white-sand beach, scattered with palm trees, where the water is shallow and safe for family swimming. Stop at 1 of the 15 open-air spots that serve snacks and drinks. The waterpark in S'Arsenal is a family-friendly diversion, but also visit the Palma Aquarium, near the beach at Can Pastilla, to see the huge shark tank and ocean habitats. A sightseeing excursion into the capital city will bring you to Catalan Gothic-style Palma Cathedral and 14th-century Bellver Castle.

A warm and dry Mediterranean getaway in S'Arenal

Majorca has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry, sunny summers and mild winters—especially in beach resort areas such as S'Arenal. With highs around 80 degrees from June through September, and around 60 from December through March, a visit to the beach, as well as other outdoor activities, is always pleasant from a S'Arenal vacation rental. The wettest time is September through November—with around 2 inches of rain over a few days per month—but resort areas are far less affected than the mountains on the northern third of the island.

A sheltered stretch of white sand in S'Arenal

S'Arenal is a popular beach resort on the west coast of Majorca, just south of the capital city, Palma. Its white sand beach extends about an hour's walk, or a 20-minute bike ride, to Can Pastilla, a quieter town whose proximity to Palma airport comes with jet noise. Beachgoers will see plenty of red gulls, and maybe some goats if you head into the mountains. Adventurous travelers will find a nature reserve a half hour drive south, and 2 others an hour away on the island's eastern side.
