Cala Vinas Attractions

The nearest weekly market to Cala Vinas is held in nearby Andratx every Wednesday morning. Special market buses are always laid from the larger south coast resorts throughout the day, although these are always very full by the time they arrive at the market. So, if there are a number of you that can travel together it's often worth considering taking a taxi for the short trip.

Older children in particular will enjoy racing around the kart track on the outskirts of the Magaluf, near to the Aquapark. They're Open every day from 10am to midnight in high summer, and for the rest of the year it's 10am to sunset. Contact details are:

The Western Park on the edge of the resort is a giant waterpark with death defying slides, thrilling rides for older kids and some tamer ones for the toddlers.

The House of Katmandu is an enormous, upside-down Tibetan-style mansion which seems to have fallen straight out of the sky. Visitors move through a series of rooms as the House tells the story of its owner, Kilgore Goode. A rugged adventurer on a life-long quest for a legendary red jewel, Kilgore’s strange tale involves an ancient monk, a mysterious sherpa, a magnificent mermaid princess and most illusive of all, the yeti – a legendary, large-footed snow beast of the Himalayas. Starting in the warehouse, visitors will learn the legend of these characters as their self-guided tour takes them through the Galley of Plunders, the Workshop of Wonders, the Library of Illusions, Katmandu Valley, the Genetics Lab, the Chamber of Pain, and finally, the Cave of Shivers. All the while, the adventure unfolds around every corner as the suspense builds to the inevitable yeti encounter.

One of the most popular evening attractions with all nationalities in the south of the island is the Pirates Adventure (Els Pirates), which is based on the outskirts of Magaluf. It takes the form of a Dinner/Show with a pirate theme, and has short dialogues in English throughout.

In addition to the family show, there is also a special late night adults only "Pirates Uncut" performance. Contact details for more information and bookings for either show are:

Although Palma is less than 30 minutes away by taxi from the centre of Cala Vinas, and is also both the commercial and cultural centre of Majorca, the depth of history, culture and nightlife there often takes visitors by surprise. The easiest way to "see Palma in a day" is by the Number 50 sightseeing bus, which runs on average every 20 minutes throughout the day, and takes in all the major sights of the city. In common with most City Tour buses around Europe, you can hop on and off the bus at any point, and tickets are valid for a 24 hour period. The total journey time for the round trip is 1 hour 20 minutes. For more information their contact details are:

Golf Fantasia in nearby Palma Nova, is set amid waterfalls, caves and tropical gardens, and is without doubt one of the best mini golf courses in Majorca. There is a choice of three very different 18 hole courses, although you will be allocated a specific course on buying the ticket in an attempt to minimise waiting time during play. This attraction becomes very popular during high season with most of the major tour operators running trips here from all over the island. They are open every day throughout the year from 10am to 2am the following morning. Contact details for more information is:

Just along the coast from Palma Nova at Portals Nous, is one of the most popular family attractions on the island Marineland. Here you will find performing dolphins, sealions, and parrot shows throughout the day. As far as we are aware these are the only captive dolphins on the island, and frequently we are asked "can we swim with them?". Again as far as we are aware, the answer is sadly no. During the show a number of small children are picked at random to be pulled around their pool in a small inflatable dinghy, but outside of the show times the public are not allowed access to these beautiful creatures. Opening hours are:
April to September: from 9am to 7pm
October to March: from 10am to 6pm
A visit to Marineland is often included in all of the major tour operators organised day trips, and it can become very busy during the peak season. For more information their contact details are:

Not really an attraction, but certainly an amenity worth knowing about, is the Hire Centre in Magaluf. They offer a full range wheelchairs and mobility scooters for hire and offer a free delivery within a 10km radius of the resort. In addition to mobility products, they also offer a range of cots, highchairs, baby walkers and buggies for hire. Contact details are:
