The Balearics are a Spanish group of islands based in the Mediterranean where holiday makers have been travelling repeatedly for years. The reason why? The Balearic Islands get great weather throughout the summer months and have idyllic beaches for relaxation bliss.
The local food is Tapas style or seafood based and it couldn't taste any fresher... after all you are surrounded by the sea! Wash it down with sangria and watch the sun set somewhere stunning which could be anywhere here!
The three main islands are all equally popular for different reasons but whichever island you choose, pack your sun cream... you are going to need it!
Sun worshippers and party gods alike need Ibiza in their lives. You can lay on the beach all day or explore the old town, watch the sunset with a cocktail or party until dawn in some of the world's best nightclubs... the 2 very different sides of Ibiza will surprise you.
Great for groups, couples or family holidays, whether you are looking for quiet beaches lined by mountains or buzzing nightlife into the early hours you can find your perfect paradise in Ibiza.
A long term family favourite, Majorca (or Mallorca), has blue flag beaches, clear waters and sheltered coves, perfect for sunbathing and swimming. You can find both lively and quieter resorts making it the perfect destination for a family holiday this year.
Don't miss the capital, cosmopolitan Palma... a lively hub where you can play spot the celebrity or simply concentrate on your cocktail!
The quieter (and some would argue prettier) of the Balearics, is Menorca. With its quaint whitewashed towns, narrow streets and tapas restaurants it provides a welcome break from a busy lifestyle.
If you are after relaxation on your summer holiday, getting back to nature and eating fresh seafood on the beach - this is the place for you!
