One of the main attractions of this crescent shaped beach is its varying terrain and ground levels, giving it a more natural appearance to how it may appear in photographs. The flat headland on the eastern side, called Punta Grossa, which links to the wooded areas and sand dunes at the far end of the beach, is less commercialised and is where most of the private villas and apartments are located. Towards the west, the land rises with a steep valley splitting the area, resulting in the resort being terraced with the resort buildings on three different levels. 

The view from the beach looking out to sea is spectacular, especially as the sun sets casting a shimmering light over the water, turning the sky a magnificent shade of golden orange.

Arenal d’en Castell resort is very well suited for families seeking safe and relaxing days of sun, sea and sand as well as for couples to use as a base for visiting the fabulous north coast virgin beaches. It’s no wonder this beach has been awarded the coveted European Blue Flag.

On the beach itself, there is a snack bar towards the eastern end of the beach, serving drinks, food and ice creams throughout the day and a great place from which to watch the sunset. Towards the western end there are a number of bar / restaurants just behind the beach, perfect for lunch or snacks at any time. Most are also open in the evening during the high season, one of which has live entertainment and tribute bands on certain nights as well as a small children’s play park. In addition there are toilets, Red Cross and lifeguard. At the east end, there is ample car parking before a short walk down to the beach. Alternatively the beach is reached by a series of steps from the centre of the resort, where there is parking. 
For those visiting the beach by boat, the marine and underwater conditions for anchoring are good, it is large enough, there is enough depth and it is very sheltered especially towards the east. This beach belongs to a bigger bay, surrounded by Punta Codolada and Taronger. On the side protected by Punta Codolada there are some dangerous reefs (Escull Gros, Escull d’en Truyol and Escull de s’Ofegas) which the navigator must avoid when approaching Arenal d’en Castell. Passed the natural breakwater of Punta Taronger, there is a small L-shaped sea inlet which is sheltered from all winds, except from the northern air currents, making an alternative anchorage.
