For decades, Majorca has been a firm favourite with sun-seeking Brits - and for good reason. The largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands offers glorious beaches, natural marvels, thrilling waterparks and a sophisticated capital. The island has a huge selection of resorts catering for families. These welcoming properties offer on-site child-friendly activities, from kids’ clubs and supervised pools, to cultural outings and trips to waterparks.
Majorca’s coastline is lined with countless beautiful beaches, from long stretches of white sand prime for swimming and sunbathing, to small, secluded coves that are great for snorkelling. But the island offers other natural wonders, including some impressive cave systems that are fascinating to explore. At the Cuevas del Drach (Dragon Caves) you can see spectacular stalactite formations, intricate vaulted ceilings and a subterranean lake.
Entertainment on Majorca
If you’re keen to experience the island’s famous nightlife, head to Magaluf on the southwest coast. Its broad promenade is lined with bars and restaurants, where you’ll find dinner shows and evening entertainment alongside late-night clubs. A short drive north along the coast is Palma Nova, popular with families due to its three Blue Flag beaches with excellent facilities. The resort town also offers bucketloads of entertainment options, such as water sports and mini-golf.
In Palma, Majorca’s lively capital, you can tour historic sites including the impressive La Seu Cathedral and the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, one of the official residences of the Spanish royal family. Wander through the cobbled streets of the city’s old town and you’ll come across ancient convents, palaces and courtyards. Don’t miss the 10th-century Arab Baths, one of the only remaining Moorish structures on the island.
