The island of Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and therefore has plenty to occupy you on your family holiday. It is accessible to all, from those on a shoestring budget to a no-expense-spared star-spotting retreat.
The island of Majorca boasts a number of resorts and if you fancy spending a day away from the beach and spending some money, head for the boutique heaven that is Palma, lined with street cafes where you can rest your weary legs.

If it’s nightlife you are after then look for somewhere to stay in Magaluf or Palma Nova where the parties and fun seem endless. However, that doesn’t make it a poor choice for a family holiday as it’s great for those who want an active break and the beaches are clean and safe. Transfer time to these two resorts is around 1 hour.
On the north coast of Majorca lie the resorts of Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa and Ca’n Picafort where the beaches are golden and the ambience is relaxing. Ca’n Picafort, with its working harbour, lies on a particularly appealing stretch of sand whilst the beach at Puerto Pollensa is a mixture of sand and pebbles. Transfer time to these resorts varies between 1 hr and 1 hr 30 minutes.
Sa Coma, Cala Bona and Cala Millor reside on the east coast of the island, approximately 1 hr to 1 hr 30 minutes from the airport, and are well suited to family holidays with a range of activities available to complement their pleasant beaches. Sa Coma is the most recent of these in terms of development and perhaps offers the most activities.
The upmarket resort of Cala d’Or resides on the southeast coast, its marina full of expensive yachts. Nearby Calas de Majorca, modern and blessed with pretty sandy coves, offers a spectacular view from its cliffside walks. Both of these resorts are around 1 hr to 1 hr 30 minutes from Palma airport.
The island itself has plenty of attractions to offer, including Aquacity, Europe’s largest water park, and Aqualand, a similar venue in Magaluf. Continuing the water theme, Western Water Park includes a spectacular diving show along with water-based rides and fun. For a slower pace of life, try the Soller railway which takes its passengers to the beautiful village of Soller, or a trip to the 13th-century Palma Cathedral.
