Mallorca offers a whole range of plans for family holidays and we at Hotel Son Caliu Spa Oasis have some suggestions for you on how to discover the wonderful island of Mallorca with your children.
If you have chosen Mallorca as your holiday destination, you cannot miss the days on the beach: swimming in crystal clear water and playing in the sand. Our high quality beaches are the essence of our island. A good example of this is the beach that can be found directly opposite our hotel. But there is a lot more to do.
There are numerous theme parks for young and old in Mallorca: the aquarium like the Palma Aquarium, zoos like Natura Park and Marineland Mallorca, water parks like Aqualand El Arenal and Western Water Park, adventure parks like the Katmandu Park. Ask at the reception of Hotel Son Caliu Spa Oasis and we will advise you.
Another great adventure is boating. Cabrera National Park is always a tourist attraction, it is a unique place to enjoy a perfect family day. You can visit the castle with a spectacular view and ethnographic historical museum.
At the popular beach of “Sa Platgeta” you can enjoy the crystal clear water, here you can see many fish in the bay. A further option is the large area next to it, which provides plenty of shade and tables for a picnic. On the way back to Mallorca the boat visits the blue grotto; a great adventure!
Another option is a boat trip to Dragonera Island, where you can discover the beautiful southwest coast of Mallorca. It is a 5 hour journey to reach the protected nature reserve.
As for the castles of Mallorca, the first option is always to visit Bellver Castle, a Mallorcan and Gothic style castle built in the early fourteenth century. It is located in a beautiful wooded area and from there you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of the city, the Serra de Tramuntana and the Pla de Mallorca.
Other castles such as Santueri Castle in Felanitx and Alaró Castle are also worth a visit. Both are amazing and full of history.
The village of Valldemossa is one of the few that has preserved its Mallorcan character and is well known for two reasons: its famous “potato cakes” and the beautiful gardens of the Cartuja.
The gardens of the Marivent Palace, the official residence of the royal family since 1965 in Palma, which have been open to the public free of charge since 2 May 2017, are another option for families.
The Lluc Monastery is another jewel in Mallorca. The hotel is located in the Serra de Tramuntana, offers a variety of Mallorcan dishes in restaurants in the area and is starting point for many excursions, also suitable for children.
The Cascades Salt des Freu waterfalls are located just a few kilometres from the village of Orient and are known for their unspoilt and spectacular natural surroundings. You will be speechless!
In the Parc Natural S’Albufera you can learn more about the flora and fauna of the island. Another good way to spend a nice day!
As you can see, the island offers many possibilities for a perfect holiday with children in Mallorca. But after so much fun and adventure, you also need to relax and the best place for that is the Hotel Son Caliu Spa Oasis.
We will make the holiday with your family an unforgettable stay!
