Majorca Things to Do

Things to do as a family in Majorca

Majorca is the perfect place for a family holiday. There are so many things to do in Majorca, and you won’t want to miss out on any of them! Here are some of the best things you can do in Majorca as a family:

Visit the Palma Aquarium

The Palma Aquarium is an excellent place to spend a few hours with your family. There are three main areas: the aquarium, a marine park and an area where you can learn about the sea life of Majorca. You can also visit an outdoor area with tanks where you can see sharks, rays and other fish. The aquarium is home to more than 1,000 animals from around the world, so there is plenty to see and do here. The aquarium is open every day of the week except Christmas Day.

Take a boat trip along the coast.

It’s hard to beat taking a boat trip along the coast when you’re trying to figure out what to do in Majorca with your family. The views are amazing, and there are plenty of stops along the way where you can get off and explore on foot. If your kids are old enough, they’ll love exploring alone—and it will also give you some time together!

See the sights at Castell de Bellver Castle

There are plenty of castles around Majorca, but this one is definitely worth checking out if you’re travelling with kids who love history or architecture (or both!). It was built in 1229 by King James I of Aragon and has been standing ever since—so there’s no better place for history buffs than this one!

Visit museums and galleries.

Majorca has a lot to offer families, but it’s not all sun, sand, and sea. There are also plenty of things to do in Majorca as a family that will make you feel like you’re on vacation without leaving the island.

The Museu de Mallorca is one of the best museums in Majorca for children. It has exhibits about the history of Mallorca and also has a planetarium. If you have time for only one museum, this is one you should visit with your family.

Another great museum for kids is the Museu d’Historia de Palma (Palma History Museum). The exhibits here include archaeological finds from around the island and ethnographic objects from different periods of history. The museum also includes a library where kids can sit down and read books or comics while their parents look at the exhibits.

Many museums and galleries offer interactive exhibits and activities for families with younger children. The Museu de la Xocolata in Palma has a chocolate workshop where you can make your own creations, while the Museu de Les Arts de Mallorca in Palma displays works by Picasso, Miró, and Dalí. For older kids who want an adventure on land or sea, try a submarine tour or take part in boat excursions off the coast of Ciutadella or Cala d’Or.

Visit Valldemossa Castle

If your family loves history and culture, be sure to visit Valldemossa Castle for its famous ghosts! You can also explore the oldest town on the island: Inca. In Ciutadella, there are many interesting places to visit, such as Sa Caleta beach (a nudist beach), Sant Elm park (with beautiful gardens), and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar church (built entirely out of stone).

Visit the beaches

 Majorca has beautiful beaches, so pack up your sunscreen and go! The best thing to do in Majorca with kids is going to the beaches.

There are so many of them, and they’re all different! You can choose from sandy beaches, pebbly beaches, and rocky beaches. The water is warm enough for swimming all year round, but the sea does get rough during the winter months (November-March). If your kids are scared of waves, choose a calm day and make sure you stay close to shore.

Visit the capital: Palma de Mallorca.

Palma de Mallorca is the capital city of Mallorca and is located on the east coast of Majorca. Its beautiful beaches and great weather make it an ideal place for families with young children or even those without kids who want to enjoy the sun and sea!

 Go horseback riding on the beach.

Horseback riding on the beach is an activity that everyone can enjoy—even those who don’t normally like horses! When you go horseback riding near Palma de Mallorca’s beaches, it’s easy to see why this activity has become so popular over recent years: there’s something magical about being able to ride horses along sandy shores while waves crash nearby!

Go hiking

Go hiking in Esporles or Torrente. If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, this is one for you! The hikes are easy enough for anyone to complete, but there are still plenty of challenges. You can even hire bikes, so everyone gets a turn at peddling their way around!

Visit Ciutadella Park Zoo.

This zoo features a wide range of animals worldwide, including penguins, giraffes and dolphins (among others). You can even see flamingos—which are very rare in Europe!

Visit Palma Cathedral.

This Cathedral dated from just after the Reconquista (when Christians took back control of Spain from Muslim rule) and was built by King Jaime II in the 13th century. It’s still an important landmark today!

Go shopping in Ciutadella Park.

Ciutadella Park is located right next to the beach, which means you can take advantage of all it has to offer—from swimming in the crystal-clear water or eating fresh seafood at one of the many restaurants—without having to go very far at all! The park itself has over 200 shops and boutiques where you can find pretty much anything you need.

Visit the Teatre Principal in Palma

The Teatre Principal is one of the oldest theatres in Europe, dating back to 1788. It’s been restored to its original grandeur and still offers operas, plays and other productions yearly. The theater is located near the L’Almudaina Palace, which was built by King Jaume I for his wife Leonor de Mascareñas y Villalonga.

Go on a day trip to Soller and Port de Pollenca.

Soller is an old fishing village that sits on top of an island connected by two bridges (one pedestrian-only). It has several beaches, including Aiguafreda beach, which has black sand beaches due to volcanic activity many years ago! You can also take photos at the famous Cales de Mallorca caves located nearby and visit Ondoia Park.
