The Balearic islands are made up of four main islands that rest in the Mediterranean sea. Each one is famous for its scenery, hot temperatures and seaside attractions. In the peak summer months you can catch one of the many varied events, from Flamenco Festivals and world food markets to world famous DJ appearances.
Majorca is the Balearic's biggest island and has always been a family favourite thanks to its many bustling beaches, excellent children's facilities and it takes less than three hours to get there. Across its resorts are accommodation facilities that feature children's clubs and on site bars and restaurants that make it perfect for those who choose an all inclusive holiday.
Majorca is also home to the party resort of Magaluf that has become grown in popularity with young people due to its endless strips of nightclubs. There is also a huge variety of places to eat out here, and many activities including water parks, diving schools and safari rides!
