To some of us, it’s really important to choose a resort that has a great beach when it comes to holidays. This is even more important when you have a family, after all if you’re happy, the kids are happy.
Whilst Spain has hundreds of amazing beaches to choose from, we’ve handpicked some of our favourites, were you can enjoy beautiful calm seas, soft sand and some great weather in the summer months.
Alcudia – Majorca
Located in the north east of Majorca, Alcúdia, is a beautiful blue flag beach and boasts one of the longest stretches of sand on the island. With its clear shallow waters, this beach has always been a huge hit with families with little ones paddling the day away.
If you fancy something a little more energetic, you will find a great selection of water sports available, such as banana boats and ski-tubes. If you want a day away from the beach, we would recommend a wander around Alcudia Old Town and a spot of shopping at the market on a Tuesday and Sunday morning.
