The father was trying to rescue the boy, who had been swept away on the island's south east coast yesterday.
The child's mother ran to a nearby hotel to get help, but the father and son could not be saved.
The tragedy happened in a small cove called Cala Antena.
A spokeswoman for the UK Foreign Office said: "We are aware of the tragic deaths of two British nationals in Majorca on the first of September. We are providing consular assistance to the family."
