Just off the eastern coast of Spain in the beautiful Mediterranean, the Balearics consist of many islands, the most famous of which are Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera.
Each with its own identity and character, these 4 main islands draw thousands of tourists each and every year, all eager to sample the many delights of vibrant Spanish life.
Probably the most diverse of the islands is Ibiza, a place packed with historic interest but best known as a place to party all night, dancing into the small hours in many of the world famous clubs and bars on the island.
The second largest of the islands is Menorca, it’s rolling fields and ravines spread out centrally to rocky coves scattered with private villas, prehistoric remains and monuments dating back as far as 123BC.
A UNESCO Biospehere Reserve since 1993, Menorca is by far the least tourist populated of the 4 islands.
Formentera, the smallest of the islands, boasts beautiful long white beaches which are far less congested than the other islands. A hippy, bohemian vibe fills the air where tranquility and escapism is the way to relax, whilst enjoying the scent of the wild Rosemary and lizard spotting on the parched scrubland.
