Mallorca is an island with impressive landscapes and paradisiacal beaches in the middle of the Mediterranean. It is the largest of the Balearic Islands and offers countless options for all visitors who want to live unforgettable experiences. If you want to spend a dream holiday with the whole family, we suggest that you visit the island and enjoy all the activities suitable for children that Mallorca has to offer. One of the activities we recommend is hiking with the family. The island has an infinite number of routes for all levels but some of the shorter ones are ideal for spending a day with the family and enjoying nature.
A trip with your family does not mean that you cannot get to know and discover your destination. By choosing the right routes, you can go on excursions adapted to all ages. The youngest members of the family can enjoy shorter and less difficult routes, although they will still be able to enjoy the Mallorcan landscapes, which will not leave anyone indifferent. If the excursion also has an extra attraction like ending up visiting a beautiful cove or discovering the island’s native fauna and flora, the whole family will enjoy their holidays in Mallorca.
Excursions Mallorca with children
Although Mallorca is known for its incredible beaches, few people know that the Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca’s main mountain range located in the northwest of the island, is also known for its landscapes and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in June 2011. Bearing this in mind, it is not surprising that the island is known for its hiking routes and excursions, which impress all tourists with their great beauty and are also ideal for children.
From Deià to Cala de Deià
In this small municipality you will discover one of the most charming villages on the island. For many years many celebrities have been attracted to this quiet little village on the Mediterranean coast with only 600 inhabitants. This route, which begins in the centre of Deià and ends at its beautiful cove, is suitable for the youngest members of the family and when they reach the cove they can enjoy a dip in its crystal-clear waters. In addition, the restaurant located in the cove itself offers delicious dishes. The cove is made up of rocks rounded off by the erosion of the water, it is small and easily accessible, both by car and on foot, and there are two restaurants above the cove famous for serving delicious fish from the same crystalline waters that can be seen from the cove.
It is one of the most classic and at the same time most beautiful excursions in Mallorca due to its spectacular nature and because it is very simple and can be enjoyed with the whole family. Sa Foradada is one of the most representative geographical features of Mallorca. It is a peninsula that ends in a cliff with a big hole in the centre, the whole has a singular beauty that attracts both locals and tourists. The excursion is short and does not require a guide, as it is very well signposted. The scenery is impressive and walking on the cliffs near the sea and watching the beauty of the geographical features will please everyone equally.
