5 Family-Friendly Places To Visit In Majorca

We went to Majorca last year and had such an amazing family holiday. The holiday itself was affordable, and the resort was nestled high up between two stunning coves. We really enjoyed exploring the neighbourhood and getting to know the local restaurants and beaches. I would love to visit Majorca again soon. If you have any recommendations for places to visit, please let me know.

Here are five family-friendly places to visit in Majorca:

#1: Magaluf
When I was younger, Magaluf had a reputation for being a bit of a party town. One of my friends lived and worked there for a summer when we were teenagers and I don’t recall many of her stories being family-friendly. However, the resort has since had a rebrand and is now attracting a more family-friendly crowd. There are water parks, go-karts and the world famous Pirate Adventure, as well as the stunning sandy beaches, so it’s not hard to see why more and more families are choosing to visit Magaluf. Take a look at Holiday Gems to find family-friendly accommodation in Magaluf.

#2: Palma
Palma is the capital of Majorca, and the perfect spot for a family mini-break. Like most European capitals, Palma is family-friendly and definitely worth a visit. The city boasts a stunning gothic quarter complete with cobbled streets and breathtaking architecture. Palma has plenty of tourist attractions to keep your little ones entertained, from castles to public parks, museums to botanical gardens. The city sits right on the shore, so there are a beach and a harbour in close proximity to the city.

#3: Porto Cristo
I had to include Porto Cristo on the list because that’s where we went last year (you can read about our holiday here) and we had a really good time. We were a little further out than Porto Cristo, but that’s the nearest big town. The beaches around where we stayed were beautiful - golden sands and turquoise seas.

#4: Alcudia
Alcudia is considered to be the tourist hub of Mallorca. It was designed with families in mind and there is plenty of family entertainment on offer in this area. Alcudia is populated with family hotels and apartment blocks, making it the perfect place to stay for a stress-free family holiday to Mallorca. If you have young children and are hoping to find your usual brand of baby food, snacks and nappies in the local supermarkets, Alcudia might be the place for you. The area heavily relies on tourism and so you won’t have to go far to find what you’re looking for. And, if you need a break from modern life, Alcudia’s Old Town is the perfect place for a walk.

#5: Escorca
If you want something a little less tourism-focused, Escorca is a great holiday destination. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city (but close enough to drive there for a visit), Escorca is filled with serene villas tucked away in scenic locations. If your kids enjoy walking, there are plenty of walks and trails you can do nearby. The landscape is simply stunning and while the area may not be as built up or tourist-friendly, it’s a perfect hideaway for a family who wants to get back to nature and enjoy time outdoors.
