Family Fun in Majorca
With a warm Mediterranean climate, crystal clear seas, soft sand beaches and fabulous restaurants, it’s easy to see why the Balearic island of Majorca attracts almost six million visitors every year. But, with so many people, when should you travel? And where should you head to for an unspoilt patch and a holiday to remember?
Best time to go
The height of Summer is by far the most popular time to visit this vibrant and beautiful island, but as with most places in the Med, Spring and Autumn are excellent alternatives. Majorca enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine each year so May, September and October are perfect for avoiding the crowds and extending your summer.
A villa holiday provides the perfect home from home environment in which to relax and make the most of your time together as a family.
The slightly cooler temperatures in Spring and Autumn make outdoor pursuits more inviting, so grab a bike or don your walking boots to explore the island. The Tramuntana Mountains are the ideal place to head if you’re after an active break – great if you’re holidaying with teenagers.
Spring and Autumn are good times to spot birds migrating between Europe and Africa; many stop for a rest in Majorca. The ideal place to watch is Puerto Pollensa or Formentor. Mid-April to mid-May can be a busy time for birdwatchers on the island.
Those who love the beach will be spoilt for choice in Majorca. Our favourites include Cala Torta Bay, near Arta, and Cala Formentor on Majorca’s northeastern tip. The latter has plenty of shade – perfect for little ones.
There’s lots to do and see in Palma. Tired little legs will appreciate a horse drawn carriage ride, whilst budding historians will enjoy the cathedral. The city is always buzzing, with musicians performing and lively cafes spilling onto the streets. The harbour offers plenty of dining options, and you can even skipper a boat for the day to explore islands, bays and beaches.
Visit the north of the island to enjoy unspoilt Majorca at its finest. Towns such as Arta and Pollensa are great places to head to for family days out.
The Majorcans are predominantly Catholic, so Spring – and in particular Easter – is the time for festivals. Palma hosts some of the biggest and best, but towns across the island come alive with fiestas at this time of year.
This immaculate and stylish villa is located in the scenic north of the island, just a few minutes from small, historic Pollensa. A golf course is on the doorstep, and if you prefer a more leisurely holiday you can simply to relax poolside or on the shady terrace. The 10 x 5m swimming pool is an added bonus for families.
