The Beauty of Spain Rests in the Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands, an autonomous division of Spain and are located between Spain and the North African coast. The Balearic Islands are also one the most popular tourist destination in the whole of Europe.

This Balearic Islands are made up of Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. On each of these islands you will find the sun, sea and sand but depending on which island you visit you can also find parties in to the early hours of the morning of a nice quiet evening with very little happening. We offer information on each of the Islands including tourist resorts, attractions, weather and the ability to book and secure you hotels and flights online.

All of balearics have an excellent climate with around 300 days of sun per year, wonderful golden beaches and a rich cultural offering. Choosing which islands to visit though may be your only hard choice as all of them will offer something you can and will enjoy on your holiday.

There are more passengers passing through the airport of Palma de Majorca than at the airport of any other Spanish city making the Balearic Islands one of the top destinations for many people.

These islands – east of mainland Spain – are tried-and-tested holiday favorites. And while they’ve all got sandy beaches and camera-ready scenery to brag about, they each have a personality of their own.


Menorca is decidedly low-key. This natural beauty is all about peace and quiet, with pine-clad hills, traditional towns and more beaches than Majorca and Ibiza put together. Son Bou has the longest sandy stretch, while Cala’n Bosch lines up open-air cafés and trendy bars.

Granted, it’s less hip than Ibiza and less happening than Majorca, but that’s exactly Menorca’s pull. This Balearic isle doesn’t do flashing neon, but rolls out low-rise resorts, pretty marinas and golden beaches instead.



The biggest island of the bunch, Majorca, has been pulling in the punters for decades. It’s a bit of an all-rounder, with great beaches, waterfront restaurants and buzzing clubs. In the north, you’ve got family-friendly resorts like Alcudia, while the south is home to party-hard Magaluf.

Majorca’s always been a reliable choice – one of those places you can book, safe in the knowledge you’re on to a winner. But in the last decade or so, it’s gone big league, with celebs proclaiming it perfect second-home territory. Thankfully, though, you don’t need their bank balance to appreciate this Med-classic.



Speaking of partying, Ibiza’s clubs are world-famous – the best are in Playa d’en Bossa and San Antonio. But the island also has a laid-back side, from Portinatx’s quiet coves, to Formentera’s untouched natural beauty, to Santa Eulalia’s boutiques and classy restaurants.



Known as the sister island of Ibiza, Formentera is a tiny little chunk of land featuring nearly untouched sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Unlike its big sister, Formentera has no airport and no major crowds except during the peak season of July and August when Italians flock there. It is the spot people go to relax, unwind and get in touch with nature.

The island is a natural fit for outdoor enthusiasts who take delight in flat terrain – minus the few cliffs – which lends itself to biking and walking. Then, there are the water attractions like snorkeling and boating. While there are a few historic spots, it truly is the nature that brings people to Formentera.

For exploration, rent a moped or bike and cruise around the island, checking out its numerous beaches. Take note – don’t be surprised to see people sans clothing. The island is known for its nude beaches … and for being home to one of the original hippie movement
