Life’s a Beach
The Balearic Islands offer visitors the chance to really get away from it all and unwind. Menorca is one of the sleepiest of them all; here you’ll find no major large tourist resorts. Instead, Menorca boasts plenty of picture perfect ports which are ideal for unwinding with a glass of wine and watching the sun set. Beaches such as Binibeca and Cales Coves in Cala’n Porter are beautiful places to put your feet up in peace while the untouched countryside of the island is dotted with hiking and cycling trails. Formentera is another excellent choice for quiet holidays. Best known for its laid back beach scene, this is the tiniest Balearic Island and thanks to a strict ban on seafront buildings, the stretches of sandy shore remain completely unspoilt. The best example of a stunning Formetera bay is the five mile stretch of Blue Flag beach: Migjorn.
The peaceful island of Menorca is ideal for quiet getaways and for a taste of traditional Spanish culture while Ibiza is famous for its non-stop party action and nightlife scene. For somewhere in between these two very different atmospheres, Majorca is a firm favourite for families and fun filled breaks.
Every one of the Balearic Islands has gained a world famous reputation over the years but it is impossible to appreciate them until you pay a visit to a Balearic destination and see for yourself the breathtaking mountainous landscapes covered with dense pine forests and award winning white, sandy beaches or the bustling cities which are overflowing with culture, a buzzing atmosphere and sightseeing opportunities. So, if this sounds right up your street then keep on reading to find out more and make sure you check out the latest loveholidays.com deals to ensure you get the best Balearic Islands holiday bargain.
If chilling out on a beach or strolling through a forest trail isn’t your idea of the perfect getaway then why not pay a visit to one of the busier and more buzzing Balearic Islands? Majorca is the biggest and most popular of all. Thriving resorts such as Alcudia and Cala Bona are filled with happy holiday-goers making the most of the excellent restaurants, shops and atmospheric bars. By day visit beaches such as Ca’n Picafort and Cala Agulla, which are great for swimming, sandcastle building and a whole host of exhilarating water sports. In the evening, Majorca offers a healthy mix of karaoke bars, family friendly pubs and bass pumping nightclubs which stay open until the early hours. Ibiza is the best known party spot in the Balearic Islands and perhaps the whole of Europe. This is a must for keen party-goers who love to dance the night away in exciting, world famous clubs.
