Palma Nova holidays come with a bucketload of family-friendly perks – from soft-sand beaches and minigolf to easy daytrips into Magaluf and Palma.

Pint-sized Palma

Magaluf’s little sister barks up a totally different tree. This place is pitched towards the kids-in-arm lot, rather than the clubbing crowd. It’s got all the modern must-haves, like around-the-world restaurants and bars, a Blue Flag beach and a huge minigolf course. Plus, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump from Majorca’s top dogs, Palma and Magaluf.


For a smallish resort, this place has a lot going for it. Families with little ones in tow are in for a treat. Restaurants have kids’ menus to hand, plus fussy eaters get to choose from an A to Z of eateries. We’re talking Chinese, Italian, fast-food, plus places that deal in Spain's trademark tapas. Activity-wise, you’ve got tropical-themed minigolf, plus Magaluf lends a hand with a waterpark, a go-karting track and masses of bars and clubs.

Top-notch trio

Palma Nova's well-suited for bucket-and-spade breaks, too. Its bay is divvied up into three white-sand coves. Playa Palma Nova’s where most sunseekers head – it’s the one in the middle, which wears a Blue Flag crown. But they’ve all got safe, shallow waters for paddling young’uns. And there’s a small marina next to one of them, which is worth a stroll.
