MANCHESTER, England, September 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

-The half-term holidays are fast approaching and with families pondering where to spend their time, On the Beach believe Majorca may be the answer-

On the Beach, the UK's leading online travel agency, say Majorca is the ideal family holiday destination for British parents searching for a place to take their kids during the coming half-term break.

Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach, comments: "Majorca enjoys around 300 days of sunshine a year, but high temperatures at the height of summer can be a bit overwhelming for some. Although Majorca remains warm throughout October, the temperature will have dipped to more comfortable levels, allowing families to enjoy their holiday without overheating."

Holidays to Majorca have been popular with British tourists for years and this has led the tourist industry on the island to adopt a very Brit-friendly approach. There are a number of restaurants that serve British dishes and shops that sell newspapers and goods from the UK. This has made holidays to Majorca very accessible to British families and the vast array of fantastic resorts that dot the island only add to Majorca's charm.

Daly continues: "Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands which gives it the benefit of being able to supply fantastic amenities and attractions to British families. The island also has a raft of stunning beaches, making it the perfect place for families who'd prefer to enjoy a relaxing week off building sandcastles on the beach rather than tearing around water parks and zoos. Whatever you want to spend your half-term doing with your family, Majorca is the perfect place to do it."
