- Magalluf Family holidays
A hugely popular destination for tourists of all ages and interests, cheap family holidays in Magalluf take you to one of the most well-loved resorts on the biggest of the Balearic Islands, Majorca. It's a lively location with a party atmosphere, but it's well placed to cater for families with younger children too, and there's generally a youthful feeling to the resort as a whole. You'll find yourself among a crowd of international visitors from the UK and Ireland, as well as Germany and the smaller countries of Northern Europe - a friendly mix of cultures that works well in this corner of the Mediterranean.
A convenient destination
The Balearics might be a little further to travel than mainland Spain, but the flight times are not much different. Best of all for family holidays in Magalluf is the fast transfer time on the ground - which should be less than half an hour once you leave the airport, as it's only 15 miles away. This is great news on cheap family package tours where the transfer is by coach and takes travellers to different hotels, as it will mean you don't have too long to wait, even if your hotel isn't at the top of the list.
If you're a strong swimmer and you're confident letting your kids away from the shore, then the sheltered waters of Magalluf Bay contain the landmark of Black Lizard Island. This is home to lots of little black lizards, and it's become something of a tourist tradition to cover the short distance out from the beach to this large rock, something that shouldn't put you in too much peril if you're fit and healthy, but which will feel like an ocean voyage for smaller children who set sail on a lilo or airbed for support.
The Balearic Islands hold many happy memories for generations of British holidaymakers, and with cheap family holidays in Magalluf, you can add to those memories for yourself and your children too. The resort is perfect for a typical family beach holiday, so if you're looking for sun, sea and sand, this should be high on your list. Like much of Spain, the tourist market is well developed, so you're in for a warm welcome during your visit.
