S'Arenal Petit - As good as neighbouring S’Arenal Gran
In the holiday resort of Portinatx in the north of Ibiza, S'Arenal Petit offers a quieter alternative to its larger, neighbouring family beach of S'Arenal Gran, from where it can be seen. The small and very narrow beach in front of the promenade wall is surrounded by only a few large hotels, but also by a lot of greenery. Rocky hills with lots of trees dominate the landscape towards the open sea.
S'Arenal Petit is easy to find in in Portinatx and there are plenty car parking spaces. The beach is connected to S’Arenal Gran via a promenade which stretches along a flat rocky plateau. It is an easy walk and on the way you will pass small shops selling snacks, drinks, swimming rings and other beach gear. There is also a playground and several restaurants here. Directly at the beach is a traditional restaurant with a cocktail bar and a great view of the bay.
Families with children are in the minority at the beach. One of the hotels nearby even explicitly states that it caters only for adult holidaymakers. Therefore the majority of people on the beach are couples of all ages who can enjoy the sun, the soft sand and the shallow, turquoise water. Sun-loungers, parasols, as well as pedal boats are all available for hire at S'Arenal Petit.
