So if you’re looking for a last minute holiday to Majorca, it has plenty of places to unwind and play after a busy day exploring.
Sun and fun at Sa Rapita Beach
A kilometre of pristine sand, kissed by clear blue sea, makes a visit to this part of the island pretty much a given anyway. That said, it makes our list for the beautiful nature reserve located just a few minutes from the shore, where you’ll be able to take in some lush woodland and scenery while the little ones blow off some steam climbing trees and chasing butterflies. It’s an idyllic setting, with plenty of potential for holiday snaps too.
Get a taste of the tropics at Jumaica Park
Head to the eastern coast of Majorca and you’ll find the soothing sights of Jumaica Tropical Park. Balmy palm trees tower over this intriguing place, unique on the island for its blend of exotic plants and wide open spaces. Shady strolls under breeze-blown palm leaves let Mum and Dad unwind while the kids run off ahead to meet the animals – did you know this is the only place in Majorca where they grow bananas?
Meet the monkeys at Safari Tour Majorca
Chances are this safari tour highlight is already on your agenda if you’re planning a family visit to Majorca.

Ride ziplines and pirate ships at the Jungle Park
Two locations in the south of Majorca make the Jungle Park easy to reach, as well as a fun filled day for adventurous souls. Obstacle courses and ziplines across the treetops challenge the brave and the bold, while more tame rides on high-wire pirate ships are there for the younger ones. With nine hectares to explore, you’re going to have plenty to do.
See peacocks and llamas at Santa Eugenia Natural Park
Animal lovers are in for a treat when they make their way to Santa Eugenia Natural Park, nestled in the heart of the island. This tranquil place has a whole host of furry and feathered friends to meet and greet, including ostriches, deer and llamas.
Play all day at Palma Adventure Playground
This adventure park is located just off Palma Museum, which means you can soak up the culture during a tour early in the day, then spend the afternoon on the climbing frames, slides and other fun apparatus at the adjoining Adventure Playground. Kids can never say no to swings and seesaws, so make sure you stop by.
Cycle, climb and explore at Lollipops Adventure Play Area

There’s adventure aplenty with cycling and themed play spaces, while teens, dads and those of you looking to settle some scores can head to the video game complex for multiplayer action.
Visit waterfalls, valleys and vistas at La Reserva
Natural beauty at its finest defines La Reserva in Galilea, a huge expanse of land with paths, trails and bridges that take you past waterfalls, through forests and across canyons. If you’re feeling daring, there’s also the Adventure Trail, which lets you cross the park via ziplines and swinging bridges. Are you up to the challenge?
Be a cowboy for the day at the Rancho Grande
You don’t have to head to Texas to live the cowboy lifestyle, and what kid could say no to horses and wagons? Take the old trail at the Rancho Grande for a true cowboy experience, then head to the included mini-zoo and playground area for a park that will round off your little banditos’ Wild West escapades.
Get lost in El Labertino
Mystery and curiosity await at El Laberinto, a maze park in the east of Majorca. You’re free to roam the twisting paths and confounding corridors of this one of a kind venue, or meet the mysterious witches, clowns and characters that call it home. Can you make it to the end?
