BALEARIC ISLANDS

Balearic Islands

In the Mediterranean Sea off the east coast of Spain sit the Balearic Islands. Majorca the largest island is a mix of resort towns and charming villages, white sandy beaches, fancy wines and cuisine. Menorca is the peaceful option, great for families and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. On Ibiza wander through hippy markets and whitewashed villages, for the more active try a jeep safari, jet boating or parasailing, at night watch the famous sunset and join the party. Catch the ferry to the small, beautiful island of Formentera, lounge on untouched beaches, explore cliffs and coves.
