For a very pleasant walk/cycle late in the season my partner and I enjoyed a relaxing couple of hours people watching and swimming in a surprisingly clean sea. The sand and surrounding pathways were well maintained backed up by a mixture of shops to suit all tastes. Certainly more space than similar resorts such as Can Picafort and better shops than Cala Tuent.

There is a very safe 15 km´s walk from El Arenal to Palma de Mallorca. We started on Balenario 3 - Hotel AYA**** and walked along all the Balenarios to Nr.15. Platya de Palma we had a first stop to look around the scenerie along coast line. Than comes a safe built mixed walk and bikeway along the coastal line ( its like a bushwalk) pure sunny with some stop plttforms for great views and stops. You can have a swim by the way.. but its a bit rocky sometimes and over your head starting or landing plans from the Airport Mallorca. Later on you see the first buildings and starting Esplanade from Palma de Mallorca and the walk will ending in front the big Cathedral from Palma.

There are so many beautiful beaches at Mallorca but El Arenal is disgusting because of drunk tourists.So if you want to come back home with nice memories avoid El Arenal( Platja de Palma) and Megaluf!

ten kms of powdery beach and soothing water; 10 mins or less from airport; lots of hotels nearby, lots of supermarkets to buy cheaper groceries if you want to save; great place to walk, people watch, reflect, sun bathe! also very beautiful in the evening because of the lights, tiendas; calm and wide enough baywalk..

reminder: watch out for authentic, handmade mallorca or spanish souvenirs..otherwise, cheap, low quality and imitations from china..
