A collection of sun-soaked islands located off the coast of Spain, the Balearic Islands are a top pick for many holiday-makers and is always a hit whether you choose to travel as a family or you’re looking for an intimate getaway as a couple. As a diverse group of unique island cultures, each part of the Balearic Islands caters to an entirely different audience, making it possible to do just about anything you want depending on the destination you pick. Mallorca, for example, is incredibly popular thanks to its stunning, lively beaches and incredibly picturesque countryside – with plenty to do for younger children and families.
Ibiza, on the other hand, is one of the party capitals of Europe, with the resort of San Antonio offering some of the world’s most famous club destinations, ideal for those are looking to dance the night away. However, there’s another side to Ibiza outside the clubs, including some genuinely stunning hikes and astounding views, that still makes the island a key destination for travellers of all types.
The other locations that make up the Balearic Islands, the slower-paced Menorca and remote Formentera, each hold their specific appeals – particularly for those that prefer less bustle and business on their holidays of choice.
