Here are some of Majorca’s top attractions that are sure to entice you to put it on your list of vacation destinations.
Western Park, Magaluf
For fun with the family, Western Park is a western-themed water park everyone will want to visit. This isn’t some small neighborhood park. Here you’ll find huge water slides to keep the adrenaline going before you hit the water. There are smaller ones perfect for the younger kids too. When you need to relax a while, immerse yourself in the Jacuzzi or wave pool before you tackle the next ride. Western Park also has diving and sea lion shows you and the kids will enjoy.
Amaze’n Laberintos, Majorca
For a unique experience the kids will talk about for a long time, this giant maze is a real test of skills with lots of fun sprinkled in. The object is to find your way to four different checkpoints as you move through many unusual distractions. Clowns, witches, magicians, and other characters will do their part to distract you. You’ll also be faced with memory games and riddles to help guide you through the maze. The whole family will have to work together to reach each checkpoint. This will be one time the kids won’t mind.
La Seu Cathedral, Palma
This beautiful Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral was built over time from the 1400’s until 1601 and is considered one of the most beautiful churches in the world. It is a massive structure that stands above the city and overlooks the sea. Inside, the columns, stained-glass windows, and art displays take you back to another time. It is one of the crowning jewels of Majorca, not to be missed.
Valldemossa Monastery, Valldemossa
Another relic of the past worth visiting is the Valldemossa Monastery. Built in the 13th century, it was originally built as a home for royalty, becoming a monastery in 1399 until 1835. Composer Frédéric Chopin and writer George Sand stayed here briefly and their legacy is celebrated by the many displays honoring them. Every August there is a Chopin festival featuring many of the composer’s greatest works.
Caves of Arta (Cuevas de Arta), Capdepera
Take a trip into the caves of Arta, where it is said that Jules Vern, who once visited these caverns, got his inspiration to write Journey to the Center of the Earth. It is a visual wonder of stalactites and stalagmites, both beautiful and eerie. Tours through the caves include boat rides to the underground lakes, light and music shows, and many photo-taking opportunities.
S’Albufera Natural Park, near Port d’Alcudia
Located about 5km south of Port d’Alcudia, this gorgeous and lush park of wetlands is a sanctuary for several bird species such as egrets, ducks, warblers, falcons, and much more. The whole family will enjoy spotting birds as they explore the wetlands either by bicycle or on foot. Summers can be hot and uncomfortable, so if you plan to visit with the kids, the best time to go would be spring or fall. Bring plenty of water and pack a lunch. It’s a perfect place for nature photographers and bird enthusiasts to capture some truly stunning pictures.
Majorca is filled with places to see. You can visit Majorca many times and barely scratch the surface of all it has to offer. For natural beauty, family fun, or a step back in history, you and your family will find Majorca fascinating.
