What to do in December with children in these paradisiacal islands?
Balearic Islands, 14 things to do all year round
Here are some ideas on what to do and see in Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera taking advantage of a off-season trip (and certainly cheaper!).
Majorca, hunting for cribs
The month of December is perfect for discovering cribs, shrines and real treasures. Like that of the Palau March, a Neapolitan cloak of the eighteenth century composed of over two thousand handmade pieces.
The traditional Mallorcan crib of the Sa Nostra Cultural Center has a curious particularity: it is shaped like an island. The town of Palma is set in the most emblematic places in the city and is undoubtedly the most nostalgic.
Menorca and Ibiza, a fascinating story
It is possible to explore different itineraries and to explore the historical events that have marked the development of Menorca and Ibiza.
You can start from Menorca, from the port of Maó, following the military itinerary (the fortified route). The immense fortress of the Mola, full of underground galleries, first defensive lines and ancient dusters, rises into a magnificent natural landscape.
An interesting itinerary follows the “British Route” (British Route), the traces left by the British during the period when the island was annexed between the English crown territories. Between masseries, fortresses, walls, towers, and museums is just a matter of bargaining.

Ibiza has not only paradisiacal beaches, but also a millennial cultural heritage.
The white churches, the walls of Dalt Vila – declared by the UNESCO World Heritage – are just a few examples. An original way of knowing them is to take part in theatricalized visits (in the costume of the time!) That are celebrated every Saturday of the year.
Teatralized visits are organized throughout the year even at the Punic necropolis of Puig des Molins every last Sunday of each month

Formentera, nature and exploration
Peace and tranquility increase exponentially at this time of year on this island that already calms its own.
If tranquility is for your family, enjoy every corner of the island exploring the 32 green itineraries that the island has to offer. More than 100 km walk or bike ride.
To discover calmly and step by step the waters of Ses Salines, the endless beach of Ses Illetes, the rural landscapes of the hinterland and the iconic Faro de La Mola.
In the eastern part of the island, between the port of La Savina and Cala Saona, one meets what once was a quarry, Sa Pedrera: a jagged coast formed by a desert of rocks with strange and unusual shapes. And there is also the Can Marroig Interpretation Center that offers interactive teaching activities for children and families.
