In this corner of the Mediterranean you can find from natural spaces of great beauty to castles that will allow your children to let their imaginations run wild. If you plan to travel to Majorca As a family this summer, we recommend you to be very attentive, since we are going to talk about some interesting plans that you can make with the smallest of the house. Can you come with us?
Of course, one of the best plans you can do with children in Mallorca is to go to the beach. The good thing is that this Balearic island has many sandy areas perfect for the smallest of the house, that is, sandy, shallow in its initial section, full of services, with access for trolleys, with a nearby parking area ... We can highlight the beach of Es Trenc, Sant Elm, S'Arenal Gran and S'Arenal Petit, Cala Santanyi, Cala Ratjada, Cala Millor or Muro beach.
In Mallorca you will also find a wide variety of theme parks. Logically, those that most succeed in summer are the aquatic ones, such as Aqualand, Western Park or Hidropark. Of course, it is also worth visiting Marineland, where the little ones can discover dolphins, sharks, sea lions, exotic birds, reptiles, penguins ... And if your children don't get tired of seeing animals, you can always visit the Zoo Natural Park.
S’Albufera Natural Park
If your children like nature, it can be a great idea to organize an excursion to the Albufera Natural Park, where guided tours are offered. Children will enjoy and learn a lot about flora and fauna. Of course, it is best to avoid very hot or sunny days. In addition, we recommend that you bring sunscreen and supplies.
Surely your children also love to visit the castles that the island hides. Not only will they learn a little about history, but they can let their imaginations run wild. Many of them, such as the emblematic Bellver de Palma Castle, are kept in perfect condition. It is also worth a visit to the Castle of Santueri and the Castillo d’A clarín.
Coves del Drach
A visit to the famous Coves del Drach could not be missing from this list. Located in Manacor, they are impressive and ideal to stimulate the imagination of the smallest of the house. In addition, they will hallucinate with stalactites and stalagmites, especially if they have never seen them. Of course, we only recommend this visit if you do not have a stroller, since there are stairs and other obstacles.
Train of Sóller
A plan that your children will love will be to travel on the Tren de Sóller, a beautiful railway of wood that since 1912 communicates Sóller with Palma de Mallorca. During the 27 kilometer route you can enjoy the landscapes of the Serra de Tramuntana, declared a World Heritage Site.
Tour the Sierra de la Tramuntana by jeep
Another interesting way to enjoy the beautiful natural environment of the Sierra de la Tramuntana is to visit it in jeep. There are several companies that offer this type of excursions. Of course, in most of these excursions you will be accompanied by professional guides
Finally, we want to suggest that you reserve a few hours of your trip to take a catamaran trip. Of course, in this case there are also many companies that offer this type of excursions. Also, some of them allow you to take refreshing dips in the middle of the sea.
