Balearic Islands Destination Guide

The Balearic Islands are an archipelago located in the Mediterranean just off the eastern coast of Spain. Revered for their miles of sandy beaches, hidden coves and plenty of breathtaking natural attractions, they are certainly worth the trip.

It is divided into Gimnesias in the north (with Mallorca, Menorca and Cabrera) and Pitiusas in the south-wast (consisting of Ibiza and Formentera). Majorca and Ibiza are the largest of the islands. The former is famed for the Cabrera National Park and Sierra de Tramontana mountains whilst the latter has a reputation as a party-goers paradise. There is an abundance of nightclubs and beach parties featuring celebrity DJs and guests.

Ibiza has a great deal more to offer than just parties and hangovers. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is due to the many cultural attractions and natural landscapes rich in biodiversity. Aside from the friendly locals, it has a rich culture and an abundance of popular attractions. These include numerous activities and delectable local cuisine. The climate is outstanding with more than 300 days of blissful sunshine a year. It is no wonder visitors return year after year.
