Holidays to Balearic Islands, Spain

Overview

With each island offering a very different kind of holiday, the Balearics really do have something for everyone. While Ibiza is known worldwide as a clubbing capital, Majorca is a huge family favourite and low-key Menorca is preferred by those looking for a quiet break. Formentera is an added treat – a near-uninhabited island with just a handful of hotels and some of Europe’s most perfect beaches.

Things to Do

Each island has its own characteristic focal point. Ibiza is famous for its nightlife, Majorca for its tourist culture and hospitality, Menorca for its history, and Formentera for its peaceful nature and stunning coastline. Of course this generalisation doesn’t apply to all resorts – for example Majorca has party town Magaluf and north Ibiza is a haven of peace and quiet – but you might want to use these reputations to guide your choice.

Food and Drink

Cooking in the Balearic Islands is heavily influenced by their Mediterranean location. Seafood and shellfish in particular are very popular and are used in a variety of meals including tapas dishes and paella. However holiday resorts in the Balearics cater for all tastes, offering a variety of international cuisine from Chinese to Mexican. Clubbers will love the array of fast food restaurants in the main party resorts, perfect for curing hangovers on a budget.
