The Balearic Islands of Mallorca (Majorca), Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, nestling in the Mediterranean Sea to the east of Spain, have been hugely popular with British families for years. Balmy weather, crystal blue seas and stunning scenery, plus a short flight duration from the UK, makes it an obvious family holiday choice, particularly for families with young children...
5 Reasons to Choose The Balearics for your Family Holiday:
Where is the best place in the Balearic Islands for your family holiday?
Mallorca - This island continues to be the largest and most established Balearic tourist destination, offering a genuine Spanish holiday experience without all the mass crowds associated with the Spanish mainland. Families often prefer the north of the island up towards Pollensa, which has plenty of lovely beaches, attractions and villas, but the entire island is a beautiful place to explore with little ones. A visit to Cap Forementor is a must - with rugged cliffs cascading into the azure sea below, it's simply stunning.
Menorca - This beautiful island has a lovely slow pace of life, and from Mahon airport, it's possible to reach almost anywhere on the island in under a 45 minute drive. For a peaceful getaway, choose the Binibeca region in the south, which is rich in small villas and stunning coves, or for a livelier getaway visit the Cala en Bosc region in the north.
Ibiza - Although well-known for it's vibrant nightlife, Ibiza has some really stunning peaceful and totally family-friendly areas, particularly in the north west of the island. You'll also find plenty of beautiful sandy beaches here, plus lots of family attractions and facilities to explore.
