About Banyalbufar

Surrounded by the towering peaks of the Tramuntana mountain range, this quaint Mallorcan district nestles among four smaller peaks, where scattered farms and vineyards scale the heights around the historic town centre.

The resident community of Banyalbufar is small, but this area boasts many visitors attracted by the island’s hidden places, steeped in history and authentic Mallorcan culture.

As well as winding village streets and historic agricultural systems, there is the working fishing port of Es Port de Canonge and a number of coves and beaches for sunbathing and swimming. These include: Cala Banyalbufar, Es Corral Fals and Son Bunyola.

The neighbouring town of Estellencs on the slopes of the mountain Galatzo is also too close by to miss visiting. We hope you enjoy our abcMallorca guide to Banyalbufar.

History and Culture of Banyalbufar

The name Banyalbufar is a combination of Moorish and Catalan and means founded by the sea. This area was inhabited and cultivated by the Moors in the 10th century who created around 2000 terraces on the mountain slopes and a sophisticated irrigation system of aqueducts which still work today.

The area was famous for the cultivation of the highly prized Malvasier or Malvasia grape variety for wine production, which modern vintners in Banyalbufar are now successfully re-establish. It is said that this wine was highly prized by the King of Aragon and was a motivating factor in the re-conquest of Mallorca by Jaume I.

Today Banyalbufar remains a quiet place surrounded by many other charming mountain villages to explore.

Major Attractions in Banyalbufar

The journey to Banyalbufar and its surrounding villages is an attraction in its own right. The magnificent views, along the winding roads which stretch down to the coast are breathtaking, with mountain peaks and dramatic rock structures.

Family things to do in Mallorca

Mallorca is a great destination for families. What’s not to love? The stunning island has sunny weather, pristine coves, hidden caves, charming castles, and long sandy beaches with a huge variety of watersports. To make planning your family holiday easier, we made this list of some of the best family-friendly things to do in Mallorca:

Beaches

Playa de Muro

Spending a day at the beach is one of the cheapest and most enjoyable things to do in Mallorca. Playa de Muro beach is a long stretch of fine, white sand with shallow blue waters (perfect for families with younger children). Its blue flag status makes it quite popular with both tourists and locals. It also boasts all the convenient amenities, including access for people with disabilities, showers, sun loungers, and parasols. The beach, located on the north coast of the island, also offers all sorts of watersports for both kids and adults.

Port de Pollença

Port de Pollença is one of the most popular family resorts in Mallorca and offers great activities, beaches, bars, and restaurants. The beach is long and wide, with stretches of golden sands and wonderful views of the hills in the background. Families can explore the waters by hiring a Velomar, a banana boat, or a kayak at one of the nearby stands.

Water and amusement parks

Jungle Parc

Test your adventurous spirit by climbing, weaving, and swinging from tree to tree at this fun-filled treetop adventure park. The park includes rope walking, climbing, zip-lining, and so much more. It has three courses with different levels of difficulty for kids and adults of all ages (four years and up).

Western Water Park

Enjoy a fun-filled day at this Western-style water park, located in Magaluf, a 30-minute drive from Palma. Families with kids of all ages can enjoy thrilling water slides (including the highest slide in Mallorca), swimming pools and a number of exciting shows – with the Western-divers and Cowboy themed shows being the most popular. We recommend wearing a pair of flip-flops when walking to the next activity, as the ground gets really hot in summer.

Aqualand El Arenal

Mallorca’s largest water park has something for every member of the family. The park features exhilarating water slides, a jacuzzi, mini-golf, a wave pool, and a special kiddies playground. Younger kids will love Dragonland, while older kids might prefer the more daring Kamikaze and Tornado.

Things to see and explore

Coves del Drac

Visitors of all ages will feel like Indiana Jones at this must-see tourist attraction. The guided tour, accompanied by multilingual commentary, includes a boat trip in the underground Lake Martel (one of the largest underground lakes in the world), with a stop at the amphitheatre – where you can enjoy a 10-minute classical musical recital.

Caves d’ Arta

Caves d’ Arta is an enchanting network of caverns, situated on the coast of Capdepera. In the ‘Queen of Columns’ room, you’ll find a 22-metre stalagmite. The guided tour comes with special effects and the various chambers are given Dantesque names – Hell, Purgatory, Paradise – it sounds creepy, but it’s a beautiful sight to behold.
Castell de Bellver

People of all ages are enchanted by castles, from a young age we’ve been intrigued by stories of kings and queens, and brave knights. Castell de Bellver is a 14th-century castle with a unique circular design – the only of its kind in Spain. Visitors can marvel at the Gothic architecture, or admire superb views of the Bay of Palma from the roof. The ground floor has a museum for those who want to know more about the history.

Palma Aquarium

With all the amazing things to do in Mallorca, it might seem strange to list an aquarium, but this isn’t just any aquarium. Palma Aquarium features a touch pool, which allows visitors to touch and learn about the marine life. It’s also home to the biggest shark tank in Europe, which allows qualified scuba divers to swim with the sharks. There are plenty of other things to see and do, including shark sleepovers, a beautiful Mallorcan garden, and a soft play area and pirate ship for the kids.
