Crescent-shaped, family-orientated beach resort with lots of water sports action.

If you’ve ever holidayed on the Costa del Sol, this stretch of Majorca is going to look familiar: lots of purpose built hotels and apartment blocks, overflowing with tat and themed pubs. The fact is though, if you’re travelling with kids or teenagers, it’s a great beach with lots going on ranging from the jet skis and banana boat rides, to more sedate scuba diving, wind surfing and sailing courses. The nicest beach for just chilling-out on this stretch is Platja de Muro, which has a couple of decent beach bars too. If you want to test the water before committing to a full-time course, offers daylong sailing and windsurfing courses for beginner kids and adults. Excellent sea kayaking trips and scuba diving (PADI) are also available and can be arranged through


Value for money

Price advice

In the Puerto Pollensa do a ‘fun day sailing’ excursion that includes unlimited use of the boat’s onboard water toys (boogie boards, jet skis, etc) and starts from as little as 40 euros.
