Family holidays offer parents a great opportunity to spend some quality time with their children away from the house. Due to the hustle and bustle of city living in the UK, many mums and dads may struggle to appreciate how good it is to just relax and chill out with their kids.

This is why jetting off to sunnier climes has become so popular and a regular destination is Majorca. One of the Balearic Islands, it has long been established as a great place for family holidays, thanks to its accessibility, favourable food and drink prices and its family-friendly beaches.

    we got home from 10 blissful days in Majorca last week, first time there and loved it but we were in Cala del Mallorca and it was small with tiny little bays – the beaches were beautiful but so full you were sat on top of people. Wish I had of seen this post before we went, as we hired a car and went exploring and past through Portocolom a few times

    We’ll be in Mallorca in both June and Sept this year so it’s useful to know where is good. We don’t usually venture far from the resort pool but Potato loves the sea so we should do this time. Thanks for this x
