Balearic Island Holidays
Idealic Balearic Island Holidays – Sun, Sand, Fun and great beaches
When you think of the Balearic islands you should think of beaches: stunning, sparkling, sandy wonders blessed with the near-perfect climate that draws millions of tourists to the eastern shore of Spain and this Mediterranean island chain. There are four main Balearic islands: Majorca , Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, each with its own distinct character.Majorca is the largest and best-known Balearic, with a reputation for partying similar to Ibiza. Indeed, the Bay of Palma is crowded with trendy bars, restaurants and discos, but Majorca also boasts stunning mountains and unspoiled coves, as well as the Balearics’ one “real” city and the Balearic capital, Palma.
Nearby Ibiza is the party spot, with a trendy resort reputation that seems to draw every club-going European to the outrageous summer street scene. Daytime hours are spent on the beaches at Las Salinas and Es Cabellet, while nights are danced away in any of the bars and discos which compete for tourist dollars.
Formentara, in contrast, is more reclusive, a haven for artists and solitude-seeking tourists who enjoy quiet clothes free bathing amongst the wild rosemary bushes and omnipresent bright green iguanas. Windswept Menorca is a bit more conservative and quiet, littered with stone reminders of its prehistoric past, and perfect for tourists looking for peace and beautiful, relatively isolated beaches.
An interesting cultural note about Mahon, the capital of Menorca: mayonnaise or “mahonesa” was first created here!
