The call of the Mediterranean
All of the three main Balearic islands provide an endless diversity of sceneries, from lively sandy beaches and rocky coastlines to verdant subtropical interiors, combined with a unique climate which is mild throughout the year, have made these islands one of the most popular beach travel destinations in the world. Some of its beaches are well known for package tourism, but there are many isolated and luxurious facilities in more secluded coasts and inland. In these hidden corners there is relax and quiet in abundance, and a great variety of sights to discover: wooded hills, pretty white villages, monasteries, country churches, caves and prehistoric monuments.
Those whose primary focus is to party always choose Ibiza, with its worldwide famous clubs and endless entertainment. Those looking for a more relaxing holiday can find peace and quiet on all the isles, where charming little villages and miles of empty tracks are perfect for walking, riding and cycling. Mallorca’s caves and caverns can provide exciting exploration while Menorca’s prehistoric structures offer a fascinating glimpse into life on the islands thousands of years ago.
Ravishing beaches, azure views, secluded mountains and soulful hill towns

Low paced small towns and villages which are havens of tranquility, and nearly as many beaches as Mallorca and Ibiza combined.
RED SOIL & SANDSTONE
The second-largest island of the Balearic archipelago, Menorca has had its FAIR share of visiting civilizations, including the Greeks, the Romans and, during medieval times, the Arabs who defended the island until 1287. The most ancient and extensive towns in Menorca are Maó and Ciutadella; both are full of historic buildings. The island’s capital, Maó (usually referred to by its Spanish name, Mahón), is the best natural harbor on this side of the Mediterranean.
Menorca’s coastline is dotted with tiny coves, bays and perfect beaches, while the island’s interior has an impressive concentration of prehistoric Talayotic structures.
An affluent, multicultural, self-confident island with a fascinating heritage and a vibrant music and fashion display.
Long a favourite of hippies, Ibiza was the headquarters of the late 1980s “rave” culture. The hardcore elements have moved on, but the party continues at stylish clubs such as Space and DC10.
As Ibiza settles down, its older attractions are re- emerging, not least the walled Dalt Vila (Upper Town) of its capital, Eivissa, with its cathedral and some archaeological treasures dating as far back as the 7th century BC.
Ibiza is the least verdant of the Balearics, but its rocky coastline conceals some extraordinarily beautiful beaches and coves.
