Best Family Hotels in Majorca  – We thoroughly enjoyed magical holidays in Majorca (or Mallorca! Same place, virtually same pronunciation – “Ma – yor – ka”) when the children were babies. Its such an easy flight, the people are warm and welcoming and the wealth of activities and family friendly resorts ensure that young families can really embrace their time on the island.  Mallorca is a Spanish island in the western Mediterranean, which belongs to the autonomous archipelago of the Balearic Islands. The island is part of the European Union and its official currency is the euro. Further facts about the geography, the climate, the population and the tourism in Mallorca have been compiled below.

The climate in Mallorca is subtropical with warm to hot summers and mild winters. The sun shines on average 7.9 hours a day. In the summer months of July and August, daytime temperatures on the coast regularly rise above the 30 degree mark.

Fine sandy beaches, water parks, boat trips and numerous fun activities make Mallorca a prime destination for families with children. In summer, the temperatures climb to more than 30 degrees and make bathing in the sea or in the pool a real treat.
