The Balearics is a small group of islands in the Mediterranean of the east coast of Spain and has long been a favourite holiday spot for us Brits! With the top flight time of 2 hours 30 minutes from the UK, cheap flights, excellent weather and miles of golden sandy beaches it's not hard to see why!
There are many beautiful and fun resorts within the islands we recommend Mallorca as our family favourite.
Located 10 kms (6 miles) away from the resort of Alcudia, Port de Pollenca is a great resort when travelling with children. It's sheltered horseshoe bay is surrounded by the stunning Tramuntana mountains. Here you can choose to spend the day at the beach, swimming in the clam waters or take a stroll around the marina admiring the pristine yachts. There is also a water based theme park in the nearby port d'Alcudia.
Try the seaside village of Banyalbufar, south west of the dramatic Tramutana mountains on the north coast of the island. A truly stunning place with safe beaches for bathing and swimming and a good selection of bars and restaurants. For a touch of history visit the old manor house known as La Baronia.When travelling with the family it's great have to the freedom of a car hire, travelling to and from the airport would be much easier. Choose when and where you want to go by booking a car hire holiday in the Balearics!
