Balearic Islands


Sparkling sea, sandy beaches, endless sunshine and lively nightlife—all are synonymous with the enduringly popular Balearic Islands. Look beyond this and you’ll find atmospheric fishing villages, fragrant orange orchards, magnificent bush walks and prehistoric remains.

There are four main Balearic Islands - Ibiza, Formentera, Menorca and Mallorca. Occupying a combined area of 5040 square kilometers, Mallorca is by far the largest island and home to the Balearic capital, Palma. Each island has its own distinct character. Ibiza is stunningly beautiful with a rugged coastline indented with coves and fine sandy beaches. The nightlife on the island is renowned. Ibiza is home to some of Spain’s largest and most famous discos and offers an unrivalled summer club scene. Check out the old walled town of Ibiza city - D’Alt Vila - and the funky shops in Sa Penya. The beaches at Las Salinas and Es Caballet are two of the most popular on the island. The windswept island of Menorca is the second largest in the Balearics. Declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993, it is full of prehistoric relics and monuments dating from three main periods: the Pre-Talayotic Period (cave era), the Talayotic Period (Bronze Age), and the Post-Talayotic Period (Iron Age). Menorca is still relatively untouched by tourism and there are miles of unspoiled beaches to enjoy.

The island of Mallorca is probably the most popular Balearic island, attracting people in their droves since the 1950s. Formentera is the smallest of the islands and the least developed. Wild rosemary exists in abundance and the island boasts idyllic sandy beaches and fine walking and cycling trails. So whether it’s the legendary nightlife in Ibiza, the cool forests of Majorca, the fine beaches of Formentera or the prehistoric remains in Menorca, the Balearic Islands offer a range of unforgettable holiday experiences. Balearic Islands tourism is great success.
