Most of our hotels allow children to stay, and some of them are even specially designed for our youngest guests. At JS Hotels, we always aim to go one step further to make sure your holidays with children in Majorca are full of fun. Here are a few of the many places and activities for you to have fun with your kids and, who knows, maybe even have a better time than them!
Visit the only amusement park on the island in Magaluf. Inspired by a world of fantasy that combines steam-punk style with Nepalese imagery, Katmandu Park offers 10 different attractions including a Splash Park, Soft Play area, terror ride and a bunch of great activities using 4D technology. It also serves food, snacks and ice cream to guarantee you have a fantastic day out.
The basic entrance package allows you to try every attraction only once, but your visit can be made on different days.
KARTING CAN PICAFORT
A few minutes from our Can Picafort hotels, Karting Can Picafort offers exciting and thrilling experiences. Adults and children aged 6 and up can ride go-karts over a genuine competition track equipped with the most rigorous security measures.
It also has a snack bar and free shuttle service for guests in Can Picafort hotels.
Water parks are the ideal combination of a refreshing dip and adrenaline. If you are looking for a different way to enjoy the water this summer, many of our hotels are near water parks with slides and pools.
In Alcudia, for example, just a few steps from JS Sol de Alcudia and a short drive from JS Alcudi-Mar and our Can Picafort hotels, you can enjoy all the facilities at Hidropark Alcudia. If you want to visit other water parks, a one-hour drive gets you to Aqualand El Arenal and Western Park, all with special prices for families.
Both adults and children tend to enjoy animal watching, but it has to be said that animals are usually even more fascinating for the innocent eyes of children, especially the most exotic ones. Mallorca offers several options if you want to have fun in contact with a wide range of animals.
If we’re talking about animal parks, we have to mention Marineland in Costa de Blanes which is especially famous for its shows. The experience of watching dolphins, seals and sea lions performing all kinds of acrobatics is well worth the journey. Marineland also includes an aquarium and areas with birds, reptiles, amphibians and primates, so variety is guaranteed.
Another option is Natura Park in Santa Eugenia, which has 500 types of animals including several types of big cat and a wide variety of exotic birds.
And if you’re looking for something really different, Artestruz Mallorca will be a great surprise. In this small ostrich farm, you can not only interact directly with the ostriches or buy ostrich-themed products, you can also make a booking for your kids to learn how to ride an ostrich!
Palma Aquarium is a must-see attraction for people who love marine life and also for animal lovers in general. Located near the airport, it’s a perfect place to visit after you arrive in Mallorca or just before going back home.
In addition to a standard aquarium ticket with which you can see hundreds of species of animals and plants, for just a little more you can enjoy a 3D whale-watching experience in the AquaDome or board the Shark Vision Boat with a transparent bottom to see the sharks up close. Special prices available for families!
ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY OF MALLORCA
Are your children passionate about astronomy? If so, you must not miss the Astronomical Observatory of Mallorca, located in the heart of the island about half an hour from our hotels in Alcudia Bay. Every Friday and Saturday in summer at 8pm, they allow visitors in to see an exhibition with meteorites, models and space photographs and an audiovisual show projected on the planetarium dome which shows the movements of the stars, the planets and constellations. The visit ends outdoors with a viewing of a replica of the lunar module and a model of Apollo XII.
Children under eight years get in free, so bring your little ones along so they can begin to learn more about the mysteries of the universe!
