If you’re looking for some fun in the sun, the beautiful Balearic Islands might just be the place for you. The Balearics are an archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, and its three largest islands – Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca – are perennially popular holiday hotspots. There’s something for everyone in the Balearics and – even parts of Ibiza are actually quiet and serene, making it perfect for all the family. Whether it’s beautiful beaches, great weather or ancient history you’re after, a holiday on one of the Balearic Islands never disappoints.
Majorca is a great all round destination with something for everyone, especially families with resorts like Alcudia. You can enjoy a trip to Palma, a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with a beautiful cathedral, art museums and winding streets filled with shops. If you just want to kick back and relax, you will find a selection of stunning beaches all around the island. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a party, then Magaluf is the key resort, with amazing bars and clubs to dance the night away as well as stunning beaches to relax on during the day.
If you want something more relaxed and low key, then a Menorca holiday is for you. Perfect for family beach holidays, the kids are sure to love this island. With beaches sweeping around the island, as well as hidden, quiet coves, you can unwind and soak up the sun. Nightlife is very low key here, there are lots of great restaurants and bars to spend the evenings in.
The White Isle of Ibiza is an island of two halves. With beautiful beaches, waterparks and markets to explore, there is lots to see and do, the island is not just about the nightlife. But if you do want to party around the clock, then you’ve come to the right island. San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa are the resorts to head for.
There’s plenty to do and see in the Balearic Islands, it simply depends where you choose to base yourself.
Of course, Ibiza is known across the world for its nightlife. You’ll find clubs and music here like nowhere else. What’s more, Ibiza also boasts around 60 stunning sandy beaches – offering a wealth of watersports such as scuba-diving, snorkelling and fishing. The beaches run all round the coastline and include the incredible sands at Cala Bassa and Cala d’Hort, featuring many hidden coves.
For a more serene break, Menorca is wonderful. Blessed with around 46 beaches, the island is ideal for sun seekers. Cala en Turqueta, which is approximately 2.5 miles from Sant Joan on the southwest side, is well worth the visit purely to take in the picturesque view of the crystal clear waters and white sands. Son Bou, just south of Alaior, has the longest beach on the island of Menorca and offers facilities including sunbeds and a fantastic range of watersports for all to enjoy. If you’re looking for some city life, discover Menorca’s capital, Mahón. Here you’ll enjoy the winning combination of beautiful harbour and buzzing restaurants, while in the Old Town you’ll find a lively food market, 18th century buildings and open, airy plazas.
Last but not least, there’s Majorca. For a sunshine break, Majorca has it all. The beaches are stunning; for a picture perfect sandy cove, head to Cala d’Or on the eastern coast. A former fishing village, the area oozes charm. Cala Gran Beach, the island’s largest, is great for all the family; it has shallow water, perfect for kids, and the most beautiful white sand.
Watersports are one of Majorca’s main attractions – whether it’s jet skiing, windsurfing or snorkelling, there’s something for everyone. For an unusual experience, try visiting the pretty town of Sóller by vintage train; 17 miles from the capital, Palma, its train line was built so farmers could bring their produce to market; you’ll be rewarded with picturesque views of the Tramuntana mountains.
