Hello, looking for a short flight from London to a sandy beach asap! Have one 3 yo dc and am traveling late in pregnancy,hence the short flight (I have the ok to travel from dr.) Was hoping for Majorca, but it's 2.5 hs and if I could find somewhere just as good with an even shorter flight that would be ideal. Anywhere you know of with child-friendly beach area? I'm not familiar w/Spain's coast or beaches at all.
I think 2.5hr flight with a 3yr old and being pregnant is doable. What I find is the biggest drag is the distance of the resort from the airport especially on a coach transfer. You need something within about 20 mins imho.
Menorca is good for children and has lots of ace beaches.
Menorca is great for families. Just spend some time checking out the resorts online. Choose a hotel that is within easy walking distance of things like restaurants or shops or beach or whatever and job sorted.
Thank you for the help. If anyone has any experience with Menorca resorts that you'd recommend, I'd appreciate it. I'll do some further research. My thinking was that Majorca has a number hospitals should that be needed in worst case emergency (just covering my bases due to pregnancy), whereas Menorca seems tiny, so maybe less so.
Santo Tomas is quite nice too, just one main street really with a pedestrian path running parallel, which has a few pieces of children's play equipment all the way along it. The path then runs parallel to the beach.
Can't remember how far they are from the airport though.
