Spain’s Balearic Islands are famous for their beach break appeal, and with all those glittering golden sands, azure seas and bustling resorts, it’s not hard to see why. But if you’re hoping to book holidays to Majorca or escape to Ibiza this Summer, your getaway needn’t stop at the beach.
The Balearic Islands are home to cosmopolitan Palma – Majorca’s buzzing capital city. When it comes to city breaks Palma certainly knows how it’s done, and this is a great spot for everything from sightseeing to designer label shopping – it boasts a beautiful gothic cathedral, chic pavement cafes and a lively nightlife that hots up after the sun goes down. In fact if it’s nightlife you’re after, the jewel in the clubbing crown of the Balearics is Ibiza – a diverse island with a world-famous party scene that draws top-name DJs and non-stop revellers from all over the globe.
But if that’s all a little too much, the quiet tranquillity of Menorca might be more to your liking. This laid-back island is renowned for its relaxing ambience and boasts a beautiful coastline, calm clear seas, top-notch hotels and plenty of things to see and do ranging from day trips and boat tours to hiking and sightseeing.
Wherever you choose to book Spain holidays, whether it’s in the glorious Balearics or on the mainland itself, you can look forward to a warm Summer climate and a friendly welcome. It’s well worth getting off the tourist trail in search of local restaurants too – Spain is famous for its tasty tapas and hearty dishes, not to mention that classic jug of Sangria.
So wherever you choose to go and whatever you want from your Spanish holiday this year, there are a wealth of different holiday experiences on offer to suit every taste and preference.
