I will arrive at Alcudia at the end of the june with my two sons. I chose the resort mainly because of the gorgeous beach and child friendly environment. However, my 7 year old elder son has been talking much about snorkeling lately and for that purpose I might need to look further than the shallow beach line.
We are talking about a kid who is not yet very confident in swimming so most of the time he would be perfectly happy just staying at a sandy beach as long as he can stay short moments underwater. However, it would be nice to plan a special day and take him to a beach with richer underwater life. And I am not talking about anything fancy, just a place where you can see more rocks, fish, underwater flora etc. easily without going too far away from the shore. And water should be calm enough for a kid to swim without too big effort.
We will have a rental car so a small distance won't be a problem. I have been considering visiting Cala San Vicente and probably it would be a good place for snorkeling as well. Are there similar coves even closer to Alcudia or what would you suggest as best place for snorkeling around Alcudia?
Thanks for any help :)
