Balearics

MAJORCA

“Majorca is a great place for families, especially little ones. The sea tends to be shallow for a long way before it starts to get deep so you can paddle with them. Not too long for the flight. We went all inclusive with Jet 2 last year there and found their deals the best. The baggage allowance is great and all included in the cost. We’ve been to various parts of Majorca over the years and would highly recommend it.” KW, Jan 18

“Croatia is lovely – we went to Istria last year and loved it. BUT very very few sandy beaches. We had a 4 1/2 yr old with us who was happy to play in sea, look in rock pools, swimming pool but could imagine if he had been younger the lack of sandy beaches might have spoilt it for us). We flew in to Pula.” JB, Sept 18

“We went to the Croatian Island of Korkula this year..we based ourselves in the little bay of Lumbarda..perfect for families & adults (no hoards of party-goers!) with small sandy beaches (the only sandy beaches in this part of the world) that very gently sloped into the sea that was as calm as a lake. Not touristy, not too busy even in August, very few Brits, great for water activities, kayaking, little motor-boat hire (we had a fab day bobbing around the coast & stopping off on uninhabited islands), & little local evening events…also it’s only 15 minutes across to the mainland by ferry which kids (& adults!) find exciting! We hired a car but there were buses and water-taxis from Lumarda to the beautiful medieval town of Korkula (10 minutes away) where there were great restaraunts/bars/lovely shops etc, also a port where ferries to other places can be caught. It was very classy yet very relaxed..wonderful!” KL Sept 18
