Arenal, Mallorca (Majorca) Guide to Hotels, Car Hire and Acivities
El Arenal, Playa de Palma, C'an Pastilla Mallorca Guide
El Arenal, Playa de Palma, C'an Pastilla are often refered to under the
umbrella term of Arenal. Arenal is a resort on the South coast of Mallorca
approximately 10 km (6 miles) to the East of the Beautiful capital city
of Palma. Buses run into Palma from the seafront every 15 minutes, so
it couldn't be easier to get in town. Arenal is, almost literally, a stones
throw from the airport so transfers are likely to be lightening quick
(under 10 minutes) by hire car, taxi, or coach. In fact, if you felt like
it, and could find a way of avoiding the motorway, you could probably
walk the 3 km (2 miles) or so from the airport to the northern most reaches
of Arenal beach.
