Six family plans for a rainy day in Mallorca

When you plan your family vacation in Mallorca, you always imagine sunny days, crystal-clear beaches, and walks by the sea. However, the weather sometimes has other plans, and an unexpected rain comes between you and your beach day. But don’t worry, in Mallorca, you have many options for rainy days!

In this brief guide, you will find a list of exciting activities that you can enjoy with your family on a rainy day in Mallorca. From aquariums to museums, impressive caves, or traveling on historic trains, we offer six plans that you can’t miss if you prefer not to get wet during your vacation.

Despite the rain, the little ones can enjoy the excitement of seeing dolphins, sea lions, and other aquatic animals at the island’s only dolphinarium. The park has a covered section where you can explore a wide variety of species in indoor aquariums, and every day there are demonstrations of exotic birds that showcase their intelligence and skill in the new Infinity stadium.

Rain or shine, the Caves of Drach are one of Mallorca’s must-see attractions. Located in Porto Cristo, they have a length of about 1,200 meters and feature one of the largest underground lakes in the world, Lake Martel. The visit lasts about an hour, and it is advisable to book in advance as it is one of the most visited tourist destinations on the island.

Located just a few minutes’ drive from the airport, Palma Aquarium offers a journey through different marine habitats around the world through its over 50 aquariums. Almost the entire visit is indoors, and among its many attractions, the Deep Blue, Europe’s deepest shark tank, stands out. It is open 365 days a year and is a perfect option to visit on rainy days.

Located in the historic center of Palma, on the old city’s defensive wall, this contemporary art museum houses one of the best collections of works by local and international artists from Mallorca. In addition to the museum’s mix of paintings and sculptures, Es Baluard stands out for its architecture and its impressive terrace with views of the port of Palma.

With over 600 outdoor animals, this mix of safari and park allows you to see animals in the wild from the comfort of your car or from the safari train. Located next to Sa Coma, in the Levante area of Mallorca, it has a 3-kilometer route where you can find giraffes, rhinos, zebras, wildebeests, and monkeys, among others. Additionally, the park has an area dedicated to felines, a restaurant, a children’s play area, and a small enclosure with farm animals that the youngest members of the family can access to see them up close.

As we mentioned in our post about the Soller Train, this is one of the most beautiful and comfortable plans to enjoy the history of the railway in Mallorca and get to know one of the most charming villages in the Serra de Tramuntana. Furthermore, upon arriving in Soller, you can visit the Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences, an excellent educational option with interactive exhibitions about the island’s flora, fauna, and geology.

We hope that this brief guide to plans in Mallorca for a rainy day helps you create an unforgettable memory of our island, even on the grayest of days. And don’t forget, we recommend booking in advance and planning your visit well to ensure the best experience.
