Family Holidays in Majorca
Even without including Majorca's fabulous beaches and bays, this Balearic island still has so much to offer families throughout the year. Get your sunshine holiday started in the best possible way with our Majorca airport transfers.
There can't be many kids that don't like playing around in water. Majorca provides plenty of opportunity to do so; it is, after all, surrounded by the warm, welcoming waters of the Mediterranean. There also plenty of water parks on the island, such as Aqualand in El Arenal, Hidropark in Alcúdia and Western Water Park in Magaluf. Whichever one you choose, it'll feature pools in which to make a big splash and slides that are perfect for whizzing down.

Water-based fun of a different kind can be had at Palma Aquarium, which is home to more than 8,000 creatures. As well as approximately 700 kinds of animals, such as Europe's largest shark species, the Big Blue, you'll find a jungle-themed play area, a pirate ship and other fun activities.
If the children's interest has been piqued by the sight of jellyfish, whales and coral, among other things, there's every chance they'll enjoy discovering another kind of natural wonder. For example, the island features many underground cave systems. Take Cuevas de Artà, which features a 22-metre-tall stalagmite, or Cuevas del Drach, which is home to Lago Martel, one of Europe's largest underground lakes. Other notable caves include the small but rather beautiful Cuevas de Génova and the low-key majesty that is Cuevas de Campanet.
We've referred to dragons (or 'drach') and pirates already and if these are the kinds of things that fire your kids' imaginations, they might like to hop on a boat that leaves Santa Ponsa. From here, a trip alongside the coastline will take you to the island of Sa Dragonera – so-called because of its resemblance to the mythical creature. This protected nature reserve features more than 350 plant varieties, and exotic creatures such as a particular species of wall lizard that is native to the Balearic Islands. Sa Dragonera was a popular haunt of Barbary pirates, smugglers and the like, too.
We've only managed to scratch the surface of Majorca's many family-friendly activities. Wherever you want to take your kids on holiday, be sure to factor in our airport transfers as part of your vacation preparations.
