Best white sand beaches to spend a family day in Mallorca

Mallorca is a true gem when it comes to beaches. From family beaches to rocky coves and quiet coastlines they all share the beautiful azure blue Mediterranean ocean that invites you in. Here we share with you some of the best white sand family beaches of the island. 

Puerto Pollensa

North Mallorca

When it’s 30+ degrees the only thing you want is to make the most of the beach. While the kids build sandcastles you enjoy a refreshing drink on a sun lounger. Fortunately, Port de Pollensa is only a short drive from the majority of our properties.

This small beach town has a charming sandy beach with shallow waters and a shaded boulevard full of good quality eateries, shops, and cafes. Here, you can rent boats from windsurfers to motorboats and even yachts! Or you can get a boat with captain. There are many boat trips around the bay and to the Formentor Peninsula.

Another big plus is that you don’t have to carry your towels too far in the hear as there is the option to park close by the beach. The busiest part of the beach is from the marina towards the pine walks. If you would like to have a bit more space we would recommend to go in the opposite direction towards Alcudia where there are also a couple of playgrounds for children young and old.

Bahia de Alcudia

North Mallorca

The biggest, longest, flattest, and most comfortable white sandy beach is Puerto d’Alcudia to Playa de Muro. Often voted one of, if not the best beach in Mallorca, this stretch of sand is ideal for the whole family. The shallow waters, plenty of space, and lifeguards on the watch make it a great place for the little ones to run around, play in the sea and bury themselves up to their necks in the sand. For the rest of the family, there are comfortable sun loungers, lots of watersports activities, ice-creams to taste, and restaurants and cafes in every price range. Yes, this place is busy in summer but it’s so spacious that there’s always enough space for you and your family.


Formentor beach

North Mallorca

A beautiful spot, with a backdrop of pine forest and views to the mountains. After a spectacular drive along the Formentor Peninsula or by ferry from Puerto Pollensa you’ll reach this spectacular beach. It’s narrow and very popular so if you want a bit of peace and quiet we recommend to either go very early or at the end of the day, but definitely worth a visit!


Cala Agulla

North-east Mallorca

If you love to be surrounded by nature and want to explore further afield, we would recommend the spectacular white beaches of Cala Agulla. Approximately an hours drive from Pollensa, it is surrounded by stunning landscapes and only has little development. It’s a great place to bring your own picnic or you can go for a stroll in the medieval town Capdepera or enjoy the buzz of Cala Rajada and on a clear day see right across the Balearic channel to Ciutadella, Menorca.
