ACCESSIBLE HOLIDAYS TO THE BALEARICS
with Can be Done
Escape to the Balearic Islands
We make sure it Can be Done
Only a short flight from the UK mainland, the Balearic Islands can offer you that getaway that will recharge your batteries and top up your sunshine quota. Mallorca is our top recommendation for an accessible holiday to the islands, where you can experience everything from local culture and top quality beach resorts to unique evening entertainment and marine life up close and personal.
Sun, Sand & Surf
Many of the Mallorcan beach resorts pride themselves on being wheelchair accessible. You’ll be able to reach the golden sands and beautiful seas via wooden platforms that are ideal for the beach wheelchairs that are readily available to disabled visitors. Resorts such as Sa Coma, Cala Bona, Cala Millor and Playa de Palma boast wide, flat promenades with easy wheeling that will make accessing the plethora of ocean-front restaurants and shops so easy that all you have to focus on is which delicious meal you’re going to choose.
The charming resort of Santa Ponsa has a view point at the end of a paved road that is well worth a visit, although the incline requires a strong pusher or an electric wheelchair.

Water Parks & Disabled Access
The Balearic Islands are a treasure trove of marine life, and Mallorca has made this magical world accessible to disabled travellers. At Marineland you can visit the Dolphin Show, the Sea Lion Show or even the renowned Parrot Show in complete comfort. Underwater viewing is a must, and the water parks have ensured that these galleries are wheelchair friendly.
For those who want to explore the rich aquariums of Mallorca, the Palma Aquarium and the world renowned Centre d’Interpretació de Cabrera in Colònia de Sant Jordi are fully kitted out with ramps and elevators to make your visit pleasurable and easy.

There is a lively tradition of evening entertainment in the Balearic Islands, and some of the best on offer have been sensitively adapted for ease of access. The most famous attraction on Mallorca is the Son Amar show, where you are entertained over dinner with the ultimate in flamboyant cabaret performances, including flamenco dancing, modern ballet and magic shows.
For those who want a more participatory experience, we recommend the Pirates in Magaluf where you can see the mock pirate adventure show on board a replica pirate ship.
Where To Stay
The resorts benefit from being relatively flat, so suitable sites for accommodation are not hard to find for disabled travellers. Mallorca’s hotels are highly rated for their bathroom facilities and many have sizeable wetrooms, hoists and shower chairs.
