Hidropark

The only waterpark located in the north of Mallorca, Hidropark has a variety of water activities and rides spread out over 40,000 square meters. For the actively inclined, SNUBA and mini golf are offered in addition to speedy water slides, while gentler options are available for small kids or those who prefer to relax.

The kids' water playground is themed with sea life and is known for its large octopus slide. There’s also a slide race for groups of kids. One of its most unique offerings is the floating water ball pool, which allows participants to step into a large plastic ball and propel themselves across the water’s surface.

More adventurous options include the Kamikaze slide, which drops from 15 meters high, and the soft slide which twists and turns rapidly. For those who prefer to stay dry, the fun park also has paintball, bouncy houses, and trampolines.

Katmandu Park

The intimately sized Katmandu Park will make other theme parks seem ordinary, as it offers a combination of adventure- and adrenalin-filled interaction. Located just a five-minute walk from the Magaluf beach, and a 20-minute drive from Palma, it’s a great place to both escape and savor the heat given Katmandu’s indoor and outdoor activities (such as a water park).

Park highlights include its upside down house filled with illusions, mazes and more. Then there’s the 4D theater and its rotating shows, 5D experiences suitable for older kids and adults, and even an obstacle-laced K3 climb. Smaller children will especially enjoy the splash park and five-level underwater-themed play area, whereas the whole family can hit the links on the miniature golf course. Food is available within the park, and more options can be found just beyond the entrance gates.

Palau March Museum (Palau March Museu)

An extensive collection of art, books, and sculpture that spans multiple centuries and mediums, the Palau March Museum is a cultural highlight of Palma. Of particular note are its courtyards of exquisite sculpture and statues from the likes of Rodin, Moore, Cardenas, and Chillida, the massive Book Hall with rare manuscripts, and the unique collection of nautical charts from the 15th-17th centuries. There are other rare finds here, such as an extensive Nativity crib exhibit and other painted wooden sculptures (many of them religious in nature.)

The museum’s exterior is worth a visit alone, with influences from Baroque palaces. It was once the residence of the richest man in Mallorca. A variety of shapes, textures, and colors on display in the outdoor gallery is a sight to behold. The courtyard is quite scenic, with a highly decorate facade and a great view of Palma.
