Sun beds

We are off to Arenal d'en Castell at the end of July, have read about the sunbed/umbrella hire being very expensive on the beach . There are four of us and 2 of us certainly too old for laying on the beach and also cannot do without an umbrella/s. Is there a local shop that sell sunbeds and umbrellas at a resonable price ?

Yes jovimar and similar stores on island will sort you out but have you transport to collect them

Where is the nearest of these stores to Arenal d'en Castell ? I was hoping one of the local shops might sell them

Above the beach there are a couple of shops, one a spar shop the other a gift type shop that sells all types of beach equipment. You should be able to get what you need here

Mostly the local resort shops only will have a umbrella of varying quality (never seen any loungers , good or otherwise ) As said above you need to a hypermarket /Jovimar shop in Mahon. You might like to consider taking something foldable with you?

You can usually buy white folding plastic "prop you up into a sitting position" beach seat thingys (same sort of angle as a traditional folding beach chair without the height) in resort shops on the island but you still need to be able to get down to sand level to sit on them!!!

Thanks for the reply, do you know if these are something sold in Arenal or if something we would have to go to Mahon for ?

Davis do you mean the folding sand seat things? I have seen them in shops in the resorts all over the island HOWEVER I have not been into the shops in this resort so have no idea if they do or do not stock them but my guess is that they will.

Yes the 'prop up' sand seats are in a few places but vary in quality- As said you need mobility to get down and up though :-)

I use them a lot :-)
