A great pleasure out of season
Nov 2019 • Solo
Nice clean beach and lovely views. I’ve often walked along this promenade out of season. There’s plenty of shops and bars open even out of season, and a very enjoyable walk from C’an Pastilla to El Arenal. However, I would be glad to avoid this area in full season, but I’m sure it’s a young person’s paradise (I’m 60!). There’s a full assortment of tourist shops, car and motorcycle hire, Hotels, Restaurants and Bars. There’s a lot of German bars reflecting the huge amount of German Tourists, but these are all friendly and staff multi-lingual.

Many beach sellers
Jul 2020 • Couples
The beach itself was clean so as the water, also very warm in July. The thing that bothered me the most were crowds of beach sellers interrupting you every 30 seconds.

Beach along a busy road ...
Dec 2019
Not a particularly scenic beach, but the background is wonderful. Nice view of Palma. I think this is a better area to stroll along, as compared to going to a beautiful beach. Although, if you are staying in Parma, it is very convenient.

Warm water, great place
Oct 2019
The water is warm and the beach isn't that deep. The town is full of restaurants with delicious food, wines, souvenirs, etc We had a great time. We went there after doing "The Camino de Santiago" You must visit!

If you thought Brits abroad were bad ....
Oct 2019
Wanted to get away from the UK rain last week and decided on a 3 night stay. Sadly this area is predominately for Germany tourists and not the nicest ones. Loud, brash groups of men (and women) drinking beer at 9am until late evening. We were staying in what was classed as a 5 star hotel yet the German guests fill their plates to the brim at breakfast and put loads of food in ladies handbags to eat during the day! We thought the Brits had an obesity problem but some of the sights were just horrible. Beware of paying for sun beds and umbrellas, Germans no longer just put towels on the sun beds around the pool, they now take over the shaded areas under the umbrellas on the beach which you have paid for. We were charged €50 for two beds and an umbrella only to find that huge tattooed germans had taken over part of the space. Such a shame as this only gives the island a bad name. The restaurants said this has been a bad season for them and I'm not surprised. Certainly wouldn't rush back.

Superb long beach
Oct 2019
We stayed in an hotel about 1Km from the beach but an easy downhill walk. The beach is very well kept and the sand is nice and firm underfoot, even 50 metres or more out in the shallow sea it is good footing and the sea was warm enough for us. A couple of downsides are that there are not enough public toilets servicing such a huge beach and the place is plagued by beach sellers pestering you to buy their wares. If you wanted, you could purchase cold beer, juices, water, sunglasses, towels, trinkets and even a massage !
There is a Road Train that runs for most of the distance between Arenal and Can Pastilla, approx. 3.5 miles and has 44 stops. It is meant to run every 30 minutes but that wasn't our experience. We waited almost an hour between services. It is also very expensive at 4.50 euros pp for a return journey, compare that to the EMT bus services 23A, 15 & 25 which run roughly parallel to the beach between the two places where, with a tourist card, you can get from one end to the other AND back for 2 euros pp. Also, it is NOT a hop-on-hop-off service so you cannot really explore the front easily
