Once families grow bigger with the kids’ arrival, many people begin to change the destinations and entertainment opportunities for their vacations. The good news is that the travel agencies and resort managers learned this a long time ago, and this is the main reason why the family friendly travel packages and destinations have become more and more popular.
A great family oriented vacation can be enjoyed by choosing the Balearic Islands. The Balearic are usually linked to the famous Ibiza and Majorca resorts, but these are just two of the popular places on the Balearic Islands.
Palma Nova, Cala D’Or in Majorca or Santa Eulalia and Port des Torrent are less known, but great family oriented resorts. As an example, Santa Eulalia has shallow waters which are perfect for younger kids. The beach is also considered to be a very safe one, a place where you can let the kids run, play and bath in the water. Also, since there are no party bars on the beach, the entire area is quiet and peaceful.
In addition to this, there are many terraces on the beach that will entertain your kids for sure; they will play lots of interesting games and enjoy spending time with other kids of similar ages, while mom and dad can take a few hours off. Kids can also play all sorts of water sports, go karting, spend a few days at Cesars’ Watersport Centre, or simply dive in the blue, crystal clear waters around the island.
The Canary Islands represent another good family friendly destination for 2016. No matter the time of the year, the weather is wonderful, allowing your kids to spend their time outside, admiring the splendor of the nature.

Barcelona is also a place to visit even if you have younger kids with you. It is the perfect city for a short vacation, as well as for a longer one.
