- Majorca Family holidays
Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, Spain's ever-popular tourist hotspot in the Mediterranean Sea, and British families have been enjoying its beautiful climate and beaches for generations. With family holidays in Majorca you benefit from activities and entertainment to keep the kids busy, leaving mum and dad free to take it easy for a while and enjoy the Mediterranean sun. Different hotels offer different family packages, from contests and competitions around the pool in the daytime to complete kids' clubs that last all day, so you can decide how long you spend looking after your children.
Big in the Balearics
Around 25 million people fly to Majorca each year, and its permanent population is the second highest of all the Spanish islands, beaten only by Tenerife. It's a huge market and the resorts are all competing to attract the largest share of those holidaymakers. This means good availability of all kinds of cheap family holidays in Majorca, making it even easier to find a deal to suit you and your family, at the right price for your budget, whether you are travelling in the peak summer season or just either side of it.
The size of the Majorca tourism market means there are other advantages too - with international visitors dominated by Brits, most of the resort staff will speak good English, and your family package holiday in Majorca might include a British travel rep to look after the kids' club anyway. Either way, you know that if your child needs something, they will be able to ask for it with a good chance of being understood. Like the rest of the Majorca holiday industry, it's all designed to make sure that your trip is as enjoyable as possible.
If you want to step up to the next level, look for all-inclusive family holidays in Majorca, as these offer all of the other benefits, but with the extra advantage that your children can get snacks and drinks when they want at no additional cost. If they are going to be in the care of the resort staff for a few hours in the hottest part of the day, this way you know they can get refreshments just by asking - and the same applies to you and your partner if you're all-inclusive too.
