Balearic Islands - Spain regions

Balearic Islands

The vast majority of holidays to the Balearic Islands revolve around the beach. Dig a bit deeper, though, and you’ll find everything from rugged mountain ranges to prehistoric ruins.

A Spanish favourite
There are plenty of reasons why the Balearic Islands are such a hit with British holidaymakers. Just off Spain’s east coast, these islands serve up everything from lively beaches and world-class clubs to prehistoric ruins and picturesque countryside.

Majorca
The Balearics’ biggest island is all about the beaches. And whether you pick superleague stretches like 13-kilometre-long Ca’n Picafort, or tucked away coves, such as those around billionaire’s playground, Cala d’Or, you’re pretty much guaranteed golden sand and calm waters.

Ibiza
Ibiza is the king of Europe’s club scene. The island’s main resort, San Antonio, is home to world-famous dance spots like Pacha. It’s a different story up on the north coast, though. Make your way to the countryside around Puerto San Miguel and you’ll find hidden caves and walking trails through thick pine forests.

Menorca
For an island that moves to a much slower rhythm, Menorca hits the spot. Families flock here for quiet beaches like Son Bou and Cala’n Forcat. Plus, there are prehistoric relics like the village of Torre d’en Gaumes, which is over 3,000 years old.

Formentera
If you want to really drop off the radar, head over to Formentera. Its 20-kilometre coastline is dotted with secluded stretches of white sand. Some, like Playa Mitjorn, have been compared to the Caribbean.
