There you have to see the Balearic Islands as a place to believe. It is a paradise in an archipelago with a majestic natural elegance, great post carte beaches and some of the planet’s most emblematic nightlife.
The greatest thing is that each island has something fresh and special to sell, and they also provide a fantastic pick, particularly though you’re searching for a varied tourist experience. You could go for a stroll in the Tramuntana mountains easily one night in Ibiza and head to Mallorca the day after (although first, it could be a great idea for you to sleep off your hawk).
Read our pictures of top stuff to do on each of the Balearic Islands if this stunning corner of Paradise looks like your own location.
Explore Natural Beauty in Mallorca
Mallorca is the hardest of the Balearic Islands with its steep peaks of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains covering the northwest portion of the island. As you may have thought, this implies that this universe gives you walking opportunities. Where else would you gaze around the mountains with beautiful views of the sea?
Yet outside the sierra, there is much to enjoy when it comes to the limitless charm of Mallorca. The Mondragó Natural Park is situated at the opposite end of the island, a beautiful oasis of quiet, sandy beaches.
Explore Culture in Ciutadella, Menorca
Menorca is one of the lowest on the Balearic Islands, with a discreet charm that compares with Ibiza’s flashiness and Majorca’s glamour. Yet it’s not dull— far from being ordinary. Many that write off the isles as a spot for a beach and a party will be shocked to discover that here too you will find plenty of history and culture.
A good example of this is the Menorcan town of Ciutadella. It is one of the islands ‘ must-see towns with a stunningly preserved historic core and colorful cultural festivals. Save the day as people head to the beach and the avenues to mark Summer Arrival in a festival dubbed St. John’s Day, with flares and bonFires.
Party Until Dawn on Ibiza
Let’s face it: for one principal cause, possibly you came to Ibiza–the nightlife. There we can’t accuse you. We might also agree that Ibiza’s famous nightclubs and holiday parties would be included in everybody’s bucket list.
Ibiza Town and San Antonio, both filled with huge nightclubs and discotheques on the beaches, are the two most popular party sites on the island. Throughout the city of Santa Eulalia, for a more low-caliber atmosphere, there is a smaller, but vibrant bar scene, which attracts fashionable locals and tourists.
Hit the Beach in Formentera
There are beaches on all the Balearic Islands, but Formentera has something really different. It’s a little farther from the beaten road, as the smallest of the populated islands, drawing most local tourists to its most famous beaches, yet providing plenty of secret coves and corners for those who want even more space. So far as heaven is concerned, it’s fair to assume that you’re nearest.
Visit an Off-the-Beaten-Path National Park on Cabrera
The uninhabited island of Cabrera, subject to a separate eponymous national park, is situated some 10 miles off the south coast of Mallorca. The National Park of Cabrera Archipelago provides natural charm, which is unseen to the eye. The region is under specific protection from the hundreds of rare aquatic flora which fauna and will allow tourists to experience it for years to come.
Explore History and Nature on Dragonera
The uninhabited island of Dragonera is another simple excursion from Majorca, on the west side of the main island of the archipelago. It has a spectacular natural park-like Cabrera, but history enthusiasts want to note the tiny yet interesting array of ruins on the island. Be sure to take in stunning views from Es Pareto mirador, and take a peek at the ancient Roman necropolis and the protective watchtower of the 18th century while discovering nature.
Sail to S’Espalmador
The remote island of S’Espalmador between Ibiza and Formentera is private and bought for cool EUR 18 million by the family in 2018 from Luxembourg. Yet you can also travel to Ibiza and Formentera (partly from Formentera can also be reached by foot at low tide), and the short excursion is well worth it. The fine white sand and crystal blue waters seem like anything from the Caribbean, and while small, the island has a view that you can retain for life.
