Balearic Island Holidays
Located off the east coast of mainland Spain and the north coast of Africa, Balearic Island holidays offer you the diversity of vibrant buzzing party resorts to delightful, picturesque, traditional villages. Glorious summers where the temperature regularly reaches the late 20`s mean that Balearic Island holidays are a firm favourite with holiday makers, whilst the mild winters make them a popular out of season destination.
The 3 main Balearic Islands are Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca, with the 2 smaller islands of Formentera and Cabrera off the coasts of Ibiza and Majorca respectively.
Ibiza is often known as the clubbing capital of Europe with heaps of fantastic nightclubs, discos and open air venues, San Antonio being the most popular and there are also plenty of quiet relaxing resorts such as the picturesque Cala Llonga. Menorca is filled with gorgeous beaches, beautiful fishing villages and historical towns like Cala`n Porter, S`Algar and Son Bou sitting on a 3km long beach. Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands boasting lively resorts in the south like Magaluf and Palma Nova, spectacular mountains in the north and beautiful beaches such as Alcudia.
Balearic Island holidays cater for all tastes with local and international cuisine available in the restaurants and British themed pubs advertising Sunday roasts, all day breakfasts and fish and chips in the busier resorts.
Ideal for Couples
Balearic Islands holidays are extremely popular with couples who are searching for glorious sunshine, sandy beaches and beautiful scenery. Cala D`or in Majorca has a wonderful atmosphere and some superb restaurants, whilst Cala Blanca in Menorca offers a peaceful atmosphere.
Great for Families
Families are attracted to the wonderful beaches and wide range of cuisine on a Balearic Islands holiday, with Arenal D`en Castell in Menorca a fine example, where the kids enjoy the mini-train. The water park close to Alcudia, in Majorca, proves to be another popular Balearic Islands holiday destination.
Exquisite fish dishes are found in many of the restaurants on the Balearic Islands, with Son Bou in Menorca boasting some fine seafront restaurants. International cuisine to suit all tastes is also served everywhere, whilst most of the resorts have bars advertising Sunday roasts and all day breakfasts.
Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, boasting an all night party atmosphere in Palma Nova and Magaluf, whilst Ibiza is known as the clubbing capital of Europe, with holiday makers flocking to San Antonio year after year.
Balearic Island holidays offer you some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean, with fine sand and a gentle shelf into the crystal clear water, such as Alcudia in Majorca and Cala`n Bosch in Menorca.
Great Day Trips
Boat tours along the beautiful coastlines of the Balearic Islands and trips inland to admire the picturesque landscapes are popular, and whether you are staying in Ibiza, Menorca or Majorca you will find water parks and theme parks for the whole family to enjoy.
