What makes Majorca so great for families?
First off, there are the beaches. Whether you need watersports galore for your teenagers, or a quiet stretch of sand for tots, Majorca has exactly what you’re looking for.
Take Playa de Muro, for example. Perched on the northeast coast, this quiet fishing village has slowly transformed into a laid-back holiday resort. The 5-kilometre beach is so spotless it’s been awarded a Blue Flag. If you go for a paddle, you’ll be able to see small fish swimming around your ankles. The beach is split into different sections, each with their own sprinkling of bars. Most of the restaurants are geared up for families, so you’ll have no trouble finding menus for kids.
Further along the coast, Alcudia is home to a toddler-friendly beach, a historic old town, and a stylish marina. But if you’re a family of foodies, Cala Bona is the place to go. This resort is packed with seafront restaurants and authentic bars, so you can tuck into net-fresh seafood paella, creamy lobster stew, and tasty tapas dishes – all served with a large glass of homemade sangria.
Is there much for teenagers?
Majorca has plenty to keep teens busy. They can zoom down waterslides all day at Western Water Park, and spend some time at Katmandu theme park. This place is brimming with one-of-a-kind attractions, including a zombie underworld, an enchanted forest and an ice cave. Back on the east coast, there are lots of beaches fit for watersports, volleyball and football. But if your kids are more into David Attenborough than David Beckham, head to S’Albufera National Park. This reserve is home to over 200 species of birds, small frogs and colourful butterflies – and entry is completely free.
