Family boat trips in Spain

Ahoy! Spain, with its many kilometres of coastline and islands, is made for anyone who would like to spend a holiday at sea. You spend the nights on the sailing ship in your cabin. The gentle waves of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Menorca gently rock you to sleep and wake you in the morning, and there is lots to discover.

The ship’s crew will show you how to steer and sail the ship, where the wind comes from and how to tie a sailor’s knot. You will also get to know the flora and fauna of the Balearic Islands and dive into a unique underwater world.

Top destinations for families in Spain

A successful Euroaktiv family holiday consists of the right mix of activities and varied highlights. So that the best time of the year becomes a great experience for young and old, we have summarised some insider tips and ideals for you that will make your holiday a real adventure.

  • Sea creatures at your fingertips: In the Palma Aquarium you will get to know the incredible and mysterious inhabitants of the ocean in any weather. A special experience is the new virtual documentary, a 360-degree experience about humpback whales, where you can get close to the animals thanks to interactive technology and 3D glasses. And if that’s not enough, unique highlight awaits - a night in the ‘Big Blue’ with sharks. You camp in one of the deepest shark pools in Europe, get to know the peculiarities of the sea creatures and of course are looked after all night. Discover this on the Euroaktiv sailing trip Mallorca and Menorca and on the multi-activity holidays in Mallorca.
  • Shopping and eating in Palma: The capital of the island of Mallorca is a real gem when it comes to enjoyment and shopping. Everyone will find a personal highlight here. Numerous boutiques and shops in the winding old town streets offer national and international fashion brands. Culinary indulgence also plays and important role in Mallorca. No visit can miss the famous pastry shop ‘Forn des Teatre’. Have you tried ensaimadas? These sweet yeast dough snails with cream filling are particularly popular. You can eat and stroll through Palma on our multi-active family holiday in Mallorca.
  • Travel on the ‘Red Lightning’: A trip from Palma de Mallorca to Sóller with the red tram is a real highlight that you shouldn’t miss on your trip. The route takes you through the typical citrus fields and the Mediterranean landscape of the island. When you arrive in the orange town of Sóller, a fruity orange ice cream from the popular ice-cream producer ‘Sa Fàbrica de Gelats’ can’t be missed. Discover all this on the multi-activity holiday in Mallorca.
  • Beach time in Menorca: The fantastic sandy beaches in Menorca are ideal for families and are mostly gently sloping into the sea. Since most of the island is protected, most bays are barely surrounded by hotels and are heavenly. A highlight are the beaches, which can only be reached on foot. Tips for beautiful beaches in the north are Cala Tirant, Cala Pregonda and Platja de Ferragut and in the south Son Bou, Cala Galdana, Son Saura and Es Bots. Menorca – a real beach paradise for families. Experience this on the Euroaktiv sailing trip Mallorca and Menorca.
  • Old town flair in Menorca: In the idyllic port city of Ciutadella in Menorca you can expect a beautiful old town district with medieval streets and a fine selection of small shops and restaurants. There you can buy a pair of comfortable Menorcan sandals, a real eye-catcher and great souvenir. There is also plenty to see culturally: the ‘Cathedral Basilica de Menorca’, an impressive Gothic church, the ‘Placa des Born’, a public square that is also a gateway to the old town, the ‘Mercat’, a real tip for connoisseurs to try regional Menorcan specialities and of course the pretty port of Ciutadella. You definitely shouldn’t miss a trip to the town of Ciutadella. Find this during our family sailing trip Mallorca and Menorca.
