Best family-friendly beaches in Majorca
Feeling the sand between your toes. Hearing your children having the time of their life in the sea. Maybe a cheeky cocktail in hand. What more could you ask for? Majorca has some of the best beaches in Spain and with over 300 miles of coastline there are some amazing ones to choose from. To help you, we’ve uncovered the best ones you should take your family to for a fantastic stay or an unforgettable day out. You can get to many of these beaches using buses but we’d recommend hiring a car to make the most of your stay on the island.
Port d’Alcúdia not only has one of the best beaches in Spain, whose shallow turquoise waters are perfect for little ones, it’s also a thriving family friendly resort town full of everything your family needs. The white sandy beach stretches on for 2 miles, so you’re guaranteed to find a great spot to camp out for the day, or your entire stay. There are loads of water sports to keep the family occupied as well as dolphin tours and glass bottom boats!
Located in the north of the island, it’s really easy to get to by car from anywhere on the island, or by bus if you haven’t rented a car.
If you’re after a more laid back and local experience, head to Cala Llombards. It’s a small beach at 55 meters long but stretches back a long way so no need to worry about getting a spot on the sand. It’s located in a cove and rarely do you see any waves so it’s perfect for children. The water is as clear as you will see so bring your snorkelling equipment and see who can count the most fish.
Although small, Cala Llombards has outdoor showers, toilets, sun lounger rental and a beach bar so no need to worry about your family’s needs.
So, we’re cheating a little bit here with Cala d’Or as it isn’t just one beach but a town famous for small coves and sandy beaches. Cala d’Or is a great place to visit to get an all-round holiday experience. There are 5 sandy beaches that are simply charming. The two largest are the central Cala Gran and Cala Ferrera. The water is shallow and calm making it perfect for families while the town has everything you could ever need for a great time.
During the summer months it does get very busy so make sure you head down early to grab yourself a spot at your favourite beach for the day.
If you thought Port d’Alcúdia had a long beach wait until you hear about this little gem. Es Trenc Beach stretches on for 5 miles of gorgeous white sand. It’s one of the few places that has been left in its natural state with no large resorts to be found. You won’t find any water sports here either so perfect for a quite relaxing day with the children. You’ll find shallow waters and a rocky area, perfect for budding explorers. The wind can pick up on this beach so do expect some waves, unlike the other beaches we feature here.
There are beach bars, restaurants, toilets and sun lounger hire here but no showers so bring your own water if you want to wash off after going into the sea.
Palmanova Beach is perfect if you’re staying in Palma. Its 3 beaches can be easily reached by a short 20-minute bus ride from the city centre. Alongside the spacious sandy beach, you’ll find various playgrounds for younger children as well as water sports and volleyball for older kids. Expect to find all the usual amenities and lifeguards for that extra peace of mind.
