Majorca is one of the most popular destinations for a family holiday in Spain. Its beautiful beaches, brief flight time, fantastic food and plethora of things to do make is the perfect for a sunny getaway with the kids. We've narrowed it down to 6 of the best things to do with kids in Majorca, which all promise a memorable, fun-filled day for the entire family.
1. Take A Trip To Cabrera Island
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. Visit 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. Visit Cap de Formentor
This incredible peninsula, 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 peninsula for some R+R afterwards.
4. Experience A Balloon Ride!
There's nothing quite like a balloon ride and it's sure to make for a long-lasting memory for you and the kids! We got in touch with one of the most long-standing companies, Mallorca Balloons, to ask them a little bit more about their business:
"With our balloons you will have fascinating views over one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Mediterranean area. We are pleased to offer you an unforgettable and really romantic adventure on our nice island Majorca! Our rides include a fleet of ballons that meet the highest technological standard, professional pilots’ team that are also English speaking, and international success since 1989!""- Mallorca Balloons Team
Whilst in Palma, why not stop off at Palma Cathedral? This incredible building is one of the most famous gothic structures in the whole of Europe and has become something of a national symbol for The Balearic Islands. If you pay the Cathedral a visit, you're sure to agree that this is one of the most magnificent buildings ever built.
6. Enjoy The Water Parks
Finally, there are a huge array of fantastic water parks all over the island, so wherever you choose to base your holiday, you're sure to be within travelling distance of one of them. Aqualand in Arenal, Western Water Park and Alcúdia Hidropark are reviewed as some of the best. If the kids weren't tired already, this will surely wear them out!
