5 reasons why Mallorca is still a family-favourite holiday destination
Mallorca is a Spanish gem in the azure waters of the Mediterranean sea and a lusted after holiday destination for many. As the largest island in the Balearics, Mallorca is popular amongst families, offering something for everyone.
Booking a villa for your Mallorca holiday is a great way to ensure a relaxed break in privacy – but the island, split into east and west, offers so much more than tranquil surroundings for your family to explore!
The west of the island is lively, offering a great nightlife – but families are often keen to enjoy a holiday in the east, populated with picturesque towns. Here are 5 reasons we believe Mallorca is still a family-favourite holiday destination:
1. Beautiful beaches
Mallorca boasts over 250 beautiful beaches, catering to every type of holidaymaker. Whether your family desires relaxing on the golden sand to the soothing sound of lapping water, or having a go at surfing or scuba diving, there’s a beach for everyone. A plethora of water sports are available across the island, such as wind surfing at Puerto Pollença beach.
Many offer stunning blue clear waters and white sandy floors, enticing children (and grown ups!) to paddle, alongside caves for the whole family to explore. You can arrive by boat to many beaches for a true Mallorcan adventure, such as a boat ride to Formentor’s narrow but beach lined with pine trees.
Even smaller, gravelled beaches, such as the 180-metre long Cala Tuent beach, provide a beautiful location for a family walk at sunset. If you desire sun, sea and sand in a family-friendly destination, Mallorca’s the place for you!
2. Lots to explore
It’s near impossible to find yourself bored on a family Mallorcan holiday. The island offers so many activities and sights to see – you can easily plan a jam-packed itinerary!
You can explore the island’s capital Palma; try out local cuisine, explore an array of shops and visit its infamous gothic cathedral. If you’re feeling adventurous, a trip to the Mallorca mountains is a must, with great walking trails provided. The island also offers several theme parks and waterparks, many suitable for all ages, as well as crazy golf and paint ball in the glorious sunshine.
3. Delicious cuisine
If you’re planning on eating out on a Mallorca holiday, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Restaurants across the island cater to all tastes and budgets, serving revived local cuisines and delicious foods from across the globe. You won’t go far without being tempted by the famous Mallorcan dish of tapas. With seasonal fruit and nuts common to find too, you can ensure your kids are eating healthy on their holiday!
4. All-year round
While the summer months are a popular choice for holidaymakers who want to soak up the Mallorcan sun, the island is actually a great destination all year-round! If you aren’t too bothered about arriving to a heatwave, there’s plenty to see on the island in the autumn and winter months. Between the end of May and the start of October the daily average temperature is between 24*C and 30*C.
5. It doesn’t break the bank!
Despite Mallorca being a fantastic holiday destination for the whole family, you can easily book your trip to the island on a budget. Without a long-haul flight, you can arrange a deal with your group in a matter of minutes. By renting a private villa, you can buy your own food and supplies and ensure you don’t overspend by eating out everyday and spend most of your days relaxing in and around the villa. So if you’re looking for a fun family holiday – Mallorca is the place to go!
