The Balearic Islands are situated in the Mediterranean, roughly 200 km west of Spain, and are famous for their party image. However, a big attraction of holidays to the Balearic Islands is that they offer a fantastically diverse assortment of resorts and attractions that are well-suited to all sorts of travellers. Whether you enjoy quiet strolls through idyllic countryside or all-night dance music extravaganzas, there is simply nothing else to compare with the Balearic Islands.
The main islands in the archipelago are Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The weather here is warm and dry with average summer highs around 30 C, although the mountain of Puig Major on Majorca stands at 1,445 metres and can receive snow during the winter months.
Ibiza balances its reputation as a notorious party hotspot with elegant cities and world-class natural beauty. The lively resorts on Majorca's south coast are best suited to groups of young singles and travellers seeking an energetic nightlife, while the resorts further north are ideal for those visiting for the culture, scenery and beauty of these Mediterranean islands. Menorca is better suited to families and offers fantastic all-inclusive resorts, sandy coves, ancient monuments and a stylish capital with British flavour.
