Enjoy your family holidays in Majorca

Northern Majorca is full of beautiful places to discover with your family. Although the south od Majorca hides amazing sandy beaches and attractions and it’s close to Palma, there are spectacular places in the north side of the island like Playa de Muro, or Cala Millor, rocky coast and caves in the East Coast of Majorca.

Family is one of the most important things in life, but daily routines, stress and problems are difficult to bear, so a great plan is taking a family holiday break to spend some time with your beloved ones without worrying about anything.

If you are travelling with your family, there are some positive effects such as the fact that spending 24 hours together on your holidays improves relations due to group activities, excursions, outdoor sports, beach activities, family walks after dinner enjoying history, culture and new food… All these and much more to ensure a memorable family holiday. .

We suggest you travel to Majorca as this Mediterranean island is the perfect family destination with amazing places like Cala Millor, Capdepera, Cala Ratjada, Son Servera, Colonia de Sant Pere and many more in the East and North Coast of the island, where you can do lots of family and group activities. Except Adults Only areas and children’s parks, this area is full of cultural and leisure places to meet all ages needs.

Garden Hotels Family Experience

In reference to accommodations, Majorca has a great advantage: there are all kinds of family hotels, from the fabulous hotels in Playa de Muro with top quality services (some even have a bike repair shop) to the wonderful and quiet beach hotels in Cala Ratjada, Cala Bona, Sa Coma, Son Servera, Costa de los Pinos and Canyamel.

If you want to enjoy a great family holiday, our recommendation is the little fishermen’s town of Cala Ratjada, which belongs to Capdepera municipality, really close to Arta (one of the best places to enjoy art, culture and gastronomy in the island of Majorca). Choose one of the many hotels with apartments for families in Cala Ratjada and don’t worry about anything: all what you need within a few steps from idyllic beaches.

A very special hotel: Sol Katmandu Park

Sol Katmandu Park & Resort is one of the most amazing hotel resorts in Majorca: original, unique and full of surprises. A surprising hotel? Of course, this is not a random hotel: it’s a hotel designed as an amusement park, recently built and with high-tech facilities, offering you personalized customer service in all languages.  A perfect place for your family holiday break: entertainment at the hotel itself. You don’t need to leave the hotel for any reason, except for swimming at the Mediterranean sea.

The hotel is a new project of Melia hotel chain and is part of  Sol Hotels family hotels portfolio, offering great facilities and excellent children’s services. Katmandu emerged some years ago on one the most original entertaining parks in the Balearic Islands: we first see an upside-down house on a garden that seems to be taken from an animation film.

Sol Katmandu Park has been awarded as the second themed park for families in Spain, the perfect place for families and especially for kids to enjoy holidays to the fullest due to the wide range of possible activities for both kids and adults. We must also stand out the advantages and excellent amenities of this 4-star hotel in Magaluf.

Magaluf with kids

Although Magaluf is known as a holiday destination for young people looking for extreme parties, sunny weather and beaches, Magaluf is also a nice charming town designed for quiet family holidays. It has many beautiful beaches, with light winds and swell, perfect for kids swim. We can find some aquariums, golf courses, children’s parks and excursion areas nearby.

The best hotels are located in front of the beach, close to a nice path along the coast, within just 200 – 250 meters from the beach, where the atmosphere is quiet and you can take a relaxing and pleasant break.

Tips for your perfect family holidays

Holy Week is coming and we need to plan our holidays. Kids have school holidays and it’s time to have a break and relax. One of the best family holiday destinations is Majorca, a place where you and your children will enjoy the beach, the natural environment, the sunny weather and the quiet atmosphere.

The island offers lots of interesting spots that you can visit, explore and take pictures with your family. You cannot miss some of these places like the centre of Palma, especially if you are visiting Majorca for the first time. Here’s a list of the most emblematic places of Majorca:

La Seul Cathedral, Majorca

  • Majorca’s Cathedral: it’s one of the most beautiful gothic monuments in the world. The cathedral, also known as “La Seu” is not just an emblematic temple of the island, but a wonderful building that characterizes the city of Palma and its people. n
  •  Bellver’s Castle: an impressive castle which towers can be spotted from far away. It is located near a beautiful pine forest. We have panoramic views of Palma’s Bay from the top of the castle. The castle hosts special celebrations during the spring months, as the popular Angel’s celebration.
  • Almudaina: it is one of the most emblematic buildings in the city located just in front of Majorca’s Cathedral. The Spanish Royal Family still hosts official receptions during their holidays in the island.
  • Santa Catalina neighbourhood: it is one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in Palma, where we can find many bars, nightclubs and restaurants. It’s one of the best places to have a drink or snack on weekends.
  • Jaime III, Sindicat, Sant Miquel and Borne Streets.- it’s the best shopping area in Palma, an essential tour to buy some top brand clothes, accessories or original products. Moreover, there are lots of charming cafés with nice terraces where you can drink something and have a rest.

In reference to accommodation, if you have already planned your family holidays in Majorca, you should book a child friendly hotel. Palmanova and Playa de Palma -because of their comfort and proximity to the airport- are the best areas where you can find child friendly hotels.
