Mallorca is a large Mediterranean island in Spain perfectly fir for families, but in particular foe children. It would not be wrong to say that it is an ideal holiday destination for children. This is because the Spanish inhabitants love children to such an extent that even a waiter in a restaurant will hug your kid. In fact, the Majorca attractions are dedicated to families and kids, who can play on its sandy beaches and its alluring resorts, go for a pony ride, learn golf, swim in the waters, explore the mysterious caves, experience the amusement parks, and meet dolphins and sea lions.
So, Mallorca is well equipped for family holidays. Many hotels organize special programs for children to keep them engaged along with the baby-sitting services. Above all, the most of the Mallorca attractions are offered by its capital, Palma de Mallorca. Now, I am about to share with you my trip to this fun-filled island!
Can Pastilla beach
I and my small cousins first wanted to explore the caves, as it is my small little friends are very fond of the caves. The wonderful Mallorca Caves offers spectacular underground lakes, huge stalactites and stalagmites, and steps and walkways. Actually, it is a complex of 200 caves out of which only some caves are open for discovery. History says that the early civilizations have taken refuge here. Check out for the magical acoustics where lakes are present and short concerts schedule. One more cave complex is the Caves of Hams located in a special setting that ensures its spectacular charm. Found in 1905, the major draws of these caves are their tree-shaped layout and splendid underground lake. An outstanding show adorns the lake vicinity with shimmering electric lighting, special effects, and colors.
One more cave system we saw on the eastern coast of Majorca is the Drach cave. This complex is a prime tourist attraction wherein you can find is a large subterranean lake named the Martel Lake. This one is among the biggest subterranean lakes on the planet. Even here, you can attend the classical concerts.
Alcudia Sant Jaume church
Then, we moved to have some fun at Marineland, a famous tourist site as the only amusement park in the Balearic Islands where one can see jumping dolphins and sea lions. These performing stars are the major draw with their successful acrobats. Besides this, you can take a tour of the largest collection of sharks not to be seen anywhere else in the continent, a parrot circus, aquariums, crocodiles, and a reptile zoo with large snakes. Our next target was the Aquacity located in the resort of S’Arsenal just a bit east from Palma.
You will simply love to come here to have fun in its many large pools, fast slides, playgrounds, wave pools, mini zoo, a children’s farm, parrot shows, and a typewriter museum. It is mostly a major attraction for children and so is open daily with little variations in its closing hours. The normal timings are from morning 10 to evening 5, which is extended to 6 from July to August.
Mallorca, Port de Pollenca
One more paradise for children is the Aqualandia/EI Foro de Mallorca that encompasses all possible entertainments – a water park, swimming pool, adventure playground, crazy golf, and a waxworks museum. Another interesting water park is the Aqua Park – Magalluf at the edge of the town offering pools, slides, a water castle, and exhilarating rides. Near this, you can spot karting in the Karting Magalluf. This means that you can have your teens do karting here, while you take the toddlers to the next door’s aqua park. Great time management!
Try out the Auto Safari at Cala Millor. Its excellent safari park offers rides with giraffes, zebra, and monkeys. Also, explore a baby zoo where young elephants and reptiles are brought up and fed. To see the animal feeding, I recommend to come early in the morning. The next exciting tour was of the Nemo Submarines – Magalluf to discover the flora and fauna under the sea. It takes around two hours and is really exciting via a mini submarine from Magalluf. The only limitation is that it is quite costly.
Andratx port marina in Mallorca
The Acuarium de Mallorca – Porto Cristo is a small attractive aquarium housing fishes from all across the globe. Piranhas and electric eels are really beautifully seen here. Lastly, we explored a museum called Museo d’Art Espanyol Contemporani that is the capital’s most famous art museum in the splendid mansion on the Carrer Sant Miguel. Herein, you will come across the art works of the Foundation of Juan March. Other exhibits amid these glorious collections include the modern works of the honored artists namely, Miro, Dali, Picasso, Antoni Tapies, and Juan Gris.
So, what are you waiting for? Plan you next holidays with these amazing Majorca attractions.
