Ride the mini train and visit the beaches

The mini train that runs through the town is a great way for families to get around easily, and fun for children and adults alike. You can travel to the different sandy cove beaches which are fairly small and contained – perfect for parents wanting to keep an eye on the kids, while the calm, turquoise waters are safe for swimmers of all ages.

Visit the historic sights

Cala d'Or features an old historic fort from the 18th-century featuring lots of cannons and loopholes to interest children. Slightly further afield, but an easy bus ride away, is the ancient town of Capdenera, with its medieval castle still intact. It's a great peaceful place to go to with the family and have a relaxing wander through, away from the crowds of Cala d'Or.

Hire a boat and do some watersports

You can have a lovely family day out by hiring a boat and sailing along the scenic coastline of Majorca, stopping off for some relaxation at a nearby island. Why not combine the trip with some family-friendly watersports? Paddle boarding and kayaking are fun ways to appreciate the shimmering Mediterranean waves, while snorkelling allows you to experience all the different fishes, flora and fauna the island has to offer.

Explore the local natural wonders

If you fancy a break from the heat then the caves dotted around Cala d'Or are well worth a visit. Children will be intrigued by the impressive rock formations on display, while the still lakes found in some caves exude an eerie tranquillity. Also great for families is the Mondrago Natural Park, featuring gorgeous white beaches and a wetlands area with migratory birds.

Dine out at a family-friendly restaurant

There are plenty of restaurants which cater for families in Cala d'Or. You might fancy trying the aptly named Diferent Restaurant with a children's menu and a fun, quirky décor. For some great Spanish tapas, visit La Bodega on the main square – grab a seat on the terrace and listen to some traditional live music while soaking up the local atmosphere.
