The Balearics are made up of four main islands – Majorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera, each with a unique feel. Ibiza’s one big party, while child-friendly Majorca's all about mountains, cobbled towns and waterparks, and Menorca’s the quieter, traditional sibling. Formentera’s the smallest but big on chilling out. But they’ve all got one thing in common: miles of sandy beaches.
Things are pretty laid-back during the day, especially if you make a visit to Ibiza’s chilled-out hippy market, or soak up harbour views over a coffee on Menorca. Thrill seekers, meanwhile, get their adrenaline fix at Majorca’s exhilarating waterparks. So whatever you fancy, there’s plenty on the agenda.
Most Balearic days come to an end with a beautiful sunset. Watch, cocktail in hand, from Ibiza’s Sunset Strip before hitting the world-class nightlife. If you want to escape the crowds, head over to Formentera’s shores. You’ll get fantastic views of the sun dipping down over the Mediterranean.
