TOP BEACHES IN MAJORCA
The best sandy beaches are located on the east coast of the island (as are some of the best family-friendly resorts) with fantastic stretches and inviting coves. While the pine-clad mountain backed stretch of Cala Agulla has shallow waters and is perfect for families, Es Trenc is arguably the most famous with fine white sands stretching 2km long. Playa de Muro, to the north, is composed of white soft sands and dunes, plus favourable conditions for watersports - so take your pick from jet and water skiing, scuba diving, paragliding and sailing on your sunny Majorca beach holidays.

MAGALUF BEACH BREAK
Thanks to their close location, you can stay in family-friendly Palma Nova and take advantage of the lively activities and attractions in Magaluf, too. Or equally, take a break from the non-stop party atmosphere in Magaluf and relax a bit further down the Blue Flag beach! Magaluf holidays are also a great choice for fun-loving family holidays and couples, thanks to a host of activities including swimming, boat excursions, pony rides on Clavia island and fun waterparks to entice all ages.
PLAYA DE PALMA
Playa de Palma’s main beach is one of the most beautiful in the Balearic Islands and is just a stone's throw from the island's trendy capital. The waters here are shallow enough for tiny tots to learn to swim or make a splash, and there are avenues for watersports like paragliding and jet-skiing that will appeal to children and adults alike. The thrillingly fun Aqualand waterpark in El Arenal is the biggest in Majorca, where kids (and the big kids) can have a splashingly good time in the pools and waves, before plummeting down exhilarating slides and chutes, from ‘Banzai’ and ‘Anaconda’ to the vertigo-inducing ‘Kamikaze’. This is definitely one for the adrenaline junkies, yet anyone who’d prefer to keep their feet on dry land can soak up the sun from the poolside. Little ones will love Kidzworld too, which opens for the season mid-May.

If you want a mixture of sandy beaches, cosy cobbled towns and the odd Roman ruin, then Alcudia holidays are a great choice. This popular resort is blessed with one of the longest beaches on the island and is within close proximity of fantastic theme parks and waterparks - a major draw for family holidays! If you want an evening out, The Peach Pit in Carrer de la Tortora, is child-friendly with a disco, parrot show and karaoke available. With all inclusive hotels and resorts like Viva Sunrise and Alcudia Garden Apartments nearby, you can focus on ultimate R&R.
Cala Millor has a lovely, beach-facing pedestrian pathway that runs all the way up to Cala Bona and is dotted with restaurants serving delicious local cuisine. If you want a break from the beach (unlikely, we know) there's plenty to keep the kids occupied. Paradise Park is bursting with activities such as bungee jumping, trampolining and go-karts. Or adventure-seekers can hop on a boat and explore the mystical Caves of Drach, or hire a beach buggy and go on an exciting tour of island.
