White Sands Beach Club lives up to the name, set on the shores of a secluded crescent cove: Arenal d’en Castell. Gaze at the glittering Mediterranean Sea from the infinity pool or the flower-draped terrace of your self-catering apartment. Each has a kitchen (there’s a supermarket a short walk away for groceries) and up to three bedrooms. When you’re not on the beach, enjoy table tennis or mini-golf at the resort, and let kids loose in the playground and separate shallow pool.
