5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Majorca with Kids

Majorca is not the first place most people with children think about visiting, the reputation of parties, drugs and the club scene has overtaken the reality and the beauty of this gorgeous little island. There is a very large family community here willing to share their experiences. There are so many things to do with the family, from beach activities to sightseeing the opportunities are endless.

  1. Private Luxury Villa

When in a special place like the Spanish islands you must stay in a special accommodation. Here there is no reason to stay in a bland hotel. Stay in a Majorca villa instead and experience the luxury and magic the island has to offer. The whole family can have the entire place to relax and be themselves. Enjoy your private master bedroom suite for some time away from the kids and a deep soak in the luxurious bathtub. Head out to the private pool and have a summer time barbecue on your fabulous terrace and outdoor dining room.


  1. Palms Aquarium 

Everything the kids could want is here, a splash park, an outdoor play area, a bouncy house and even a pirate ship bay. There are also many interesting animals to see like rays, turtles, sharks, and starfish. You can even feed them during certain times and dive with the rays in a huge tank that is located outdoors. Take a walk through the gardens or the rainforest canopy until you come across the pristine sandy beach where sea turtles are often spotted.


  1.  Water Parks

Water parks, yes plural! The three main parks are Western Water Park, Aqualand, and Hidropark. You can save a bit of cash if you check out deals online or in tourist packages. Most are open from May to November. They have things for all ages from splash pools for tots to intense slides for tweens and adults. While the kids are busy the adults can rent a sun-bed and chill out with a drink in the shade.


  1. The Beach, of course!

Some of the world's best beaches are in Majorca. That said, there are so many to choose from. Cala d’or is a perfect spot for families as well as the more posh Puerto Pollensa. Puerto Pollensa has an idyllic calm bay with fairy tale soft sand and clear turquoise waters. The water is calm and shallow, making it a great beach for little ones to experience the ocean for the first time.

If you’re feeling like a bit of a day trip is in order then Playa de Formentor is to the northeast of Port de Pollensa is a great idea. During summer a quick ferry will take you there from the beach. Camp de Mar is also a great option for families who enjoy crystal clear water and a clean beach. Little coves make exploring great for preteens. Port de Soller beach has a more relaxed and quieter atmosphere.

Possibly one of the best reasons to come to the beach is for the restaurant Illeta, it was built on an island in the sea and can be accessed by a wooden bridge from the beach.


  1. Drach Caves

Majorca has many natural caves, but this one is particularly brilliant and makes for a great option on a rainy day in Majorca. The acoustics are something you have to experience for yourself. Even small children will be transfixed by the mesmerizing sounds. Prams are allowed but can be a bit cumbersome on the steps. After the show you can choose to walk back or travel back on the boat.
