The beautiful Balearics
Mallorca and Menorca have long been popular with tourists, but if you think it’s just bucket ‘n’ spade delights, think again. Mallorca’s capital, Palma de Mallorca, has a fascinating history, and the island’s varied landscape includes rugged mountains and a rural interior little-touched by tourism. Boutique hotels, delicious paella, and peaceful villages show there’s much more than the islands' beaches. The likes of Magaluf still supply cheap thrills, but in quiet corners of Menorca or Mallorca’s Tramuntana mountains, it all seems ages away.
Family friendly theme and water park
Aqualand Magaluf does, though, score highly on the theme park stakes, with Aqualand Magaluf and its little cowboy brother the Western Water Park providing plenty of aquatic fun for the kids.
Many of the hotels stage Vegas-style shows, or you could try the popular Pirates Adventure show, awash with ‘Pirate Punch’ and much swashbuckling. If your pockets are deep, you can climb aboard the Nemosub, a tourist submarine that operates underwater excursions; the whole experience lasts around two hours, though passengers are only underwater for around 45 minutes.
