This Spanish archipelago provides visitors with an amazing array of choices across three equally beautiful but very different islands. Relaxing beaches, cultural history, scenic wildlife, lively nightclubs and much more are all found on Balearic Island holidays.
These diverse islands are situated in the Mediterranean, roughly 200km west of Spain and there are enough resorts to choose from to satisfy any holiday craving. 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.
Choose from Majorca, Ibiza and Menorca to enjoy holidays with different themes but the consistent presence of the blissful Mediterranean climate.
Holidays to the Balearic Islands can be enjoyed by absolutely everyone. The young and old, families and couples, and the 18-30s singles, there is a resort to suit everyone in this part of Europe.
Not just the club capital of the world, Ibiza is also a beautiful island with miles of forested hills, magnificent history and over 80 beaches.
Partygoers head to the resorts in the south where you'll find top nightclubs like Pacha, Es Paradis or the Bora Bora Beach Bar. The party starts early and ends very late with thousands of clubbers coming to enjoy the very best DJs in the world.
Families and couples are also invited to enjoy the wonderful scenery and attractions that Ibiza has to offer too. Quiet beaches, delightful villages and an abundance of delicious restaurants are found away from the mayhem of the clubs.
With dozens of tourist resorts on offer, Majorca is one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. It's not hard to see why either with so much variation, personality and natural beauty squeezed into this small island.
Families can enjoy the friendly atmosphere of Alcudia or Puerto Pollensa, couples can enjoy the traditional Spanish charms of Deya and Alaro, and young singles can enjoy the manic fun and nightclubs at Magaluf and Arenal.
With the exception of Palma which offers inspiring historical relics, the majority of resorts are all accompanied by fantastic coastlines with glorious beaches.
The quietest of the main Balearic Islands features an extensive selection of paradise beaches and impressive nature. Menorca is an ideal destination for a quiet couple's holiday or a joyous family getaway.
The majority of resorts are based around glorious beaches with impressive oceans but historic towns such as Ciutadella and Es Castell are coastal delights built by their harbours. These cultural resorts actually display centuries of development dating back to British colonial rule.
The traditional beach resorts are well equipped to cater for your relaxing break underneath the Mediterranean sunshine. Water sports are offered across dozens of Blue Flag beaches with bars and restaurants never too far away.
Summer holidays to the Balearic Islands are so popular primarily thanks to the wonderful weather enjoyed. May to September is classed as peak season and during this time the weather stays comfortably above 20C while regularly hitting 30C at the height of summer.
There is no summer wet spell to contend with here making it a great alternative to the tropical showers of the Caribbean Islands. The winters get milder with an average of 10C and there is an increase of rain during this time too.
Many resorts in the three islands hold summer fiestas where tourists and locals enjoy massive street parties with music, dancing and Spanish traditions. Search through the resorts on Holiday Hypermarket to see when you should travel.
This family fun activity is found in the woods by Santa Eulalia and Es Cana in Ibiza. The tree top assault course can be enjoyed by everyone aged 3 and above with three different courses to tackle. Swing, jump and zip line through the shade of the trees and it's all available at a good price.
One of Europe's most famous nightclubs is found in the vibrant and manic resort of Magaluf (Majorca). The party never stops in this resort and BCM is the main attraction for nightlife here. With world class entertainment and acts, nightly events and free swag when you pay your entry fee, it is a must see.
An eerie tour around this Puerto San Miguel attraction in Ibiza is not to be missed. What used to be used by pirate smugglers has now been transformed into a fascinating tour with a spectacular reward at the end. Journey deep enough to watch a light and music display next to a 30ft waterfall.
A unique experience that can be found on the east end of the island in Majorca. The Caves of Drach have been looked after for centuries and it is now a wonderfully lit spectacle that offers boat rides through the underground pools as well as hourly live classical music concerts.
Ibiza Town's most iconic structure is the castle that sits high above the other surroundings. Contained within the walls of Dalt Villa, this cobble paved relic was built with Roman influences. Just seeing it is an experience but there are also shops and restaurants to sample too.
Menorca's capital is worth a visit both by day and night. During the day tourists browse the historic surroundings of the town as well as the great selection of shops. By night the town comes alive with smooth music clubs and fun bars that offer fun and lively evenings.
The capital of Majorca is a treasure trove of history and culture, Palma offers a drastically different holiday experience to the surroundings resorts on the south coast of the island. While strolling through the charming streets you'll find castles and cathedrals as well as the island's best selection of shops and restaurants.
Spreading from the west to the north of the island, there are villages, churches and castle ruins to discover across the Serra de Tramuntana mountain terrain. Enjoy the stunning views of the island and coastline from any one of the several mountain peaks too.
Experienced scuba divers will want to dive in along the central south coast of Menorca. By the town of Cape D'en Font is a network of underwater caves to explore. The water surrounding the coastline is always crystal clear so beginners can experience great views just by snorkelling.
