What could be more thrilling for the children than the prospect of visiting an uninhabited island?! Well, Majorca has one. Preserved as a National Park off the southern coast of the island, the islet of Cabrera is perfect for a day trip playing explorers; discovering secret beaches and unique landscapes. The island also has a rich history and was used to house French prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars. Now, it plays host to an old abandoned castle!

2. Cuevas del Drach

On the east coast of Majorca, these caves are hailed as one of Majorca's most outstanding tourist attractions. Up to 25m high in some places, these incredible natural formations are a fantastic place to take the kids! Not only will they love seeing the stalactites and stalagmites, but the tour also features a boat ride to classical music across the stunning lagoon!

3. Cap de Formentor

This incredible peninsular, the most northern tip of Majorca, is without a doubt one of the most picturesque positions on the island. We recommend hiring bikes and cycling up the winding road to the lighthouse. This is a great way to get the family active whilst enjoying the view! There are also some beautiful sandy beaches around the peninsular for some R+R afterwards!

4. Bellver Castle

The impressive, gothic structure of Bellver Castle in Palma is an enthralling and culturally rich place to take the kids on holiday. Built in the 14th Century, it was used for a long period of time as a prison. Now, the royal fortress is one of the main tourist attractions on the island, proudly standing over Palma Bay; 'Bellver' actually means 'lovely view'!
