Nightclubs, beaches and family life in the Balearic Islands

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.

Places to Visit

Menorca

A firm family favourite due to the laid back resorts and pristine sandy beaches, Menorca holidays are perfect for laid back, relaxing summer holidays. The quietest of the Balearic Islands, you're spoilt for choice with over 120 beached to choose from.

Ibiza

Known for its lively reputation with Ibiza Town and San Antonio competing for the party hot spot title, Ibiza is also a family favourite with long stretches of golden beaches and hidden rocky bays to explore.

Majorca

Exciting party resorts such as Magaluf and Palma Nova attract the younger crowd while families head for bustling Alcudia, and the safe sandy beaches of Puerto Pollensa. City breaks to Palma offer the perfect weekend away for the whole family.

Ibiza

Ibiza is a little island with a big reputation, known for its wild summer parties, clubs and festivals that attract revellers from all over the world. Many visitors focus their sights on San Antonio or Ibiza Town, preferring to spend their time on the dance floor or recovering from the night before with a cocktail on one of the island's white beaches. Ibiza Town is where to find the big name DJs and floor fillers, whereas San Antonio has plenty of wine bars and a more refined feel. If you've had your fill of all-nighters, there are natural and cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites located all over the island in recognition of its prehistoric and ancient monuments, outstanding architecture and natural beauty. Ibiza's landscape is dotted with fragrant pine, juniper and olive trees and offers a beautiful coastline rich with marine life. The ocean water can reach a luxurious 27 C in the summer, perfect for snorkellers and scuba-divers as well as beachside pleasure-seekers.

Majorca

Majorca has been a favourite of British visitors since the 1950s and has fantastic modern resorts and amenities. Palma de Mallorca, the island's capital, is a chic and sophisticated affair, while Palma Nova is perfect for families and Magaluf sees the sort of parties that would look at home on Ibiza. The island is adorned with pristine Blue Flag beaches, famous for their cleanliness and beauty. Majorca's east coast is lined with secluded sandy coves, some of which feature underground lakes for adventure-seeking divers. Visit the S'Albufera Nature Reserve in the north east and continue north to see the dramatic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range.

Menorca

Menorca is the most relaxed of the three main islands and has more sandy beaches than the rest of the Balearics combined. The capital of Port Mahon was a British outpost for years, and the sun-kissed harbour is lined with great restaurants and bars catering to a variety of tastes. The sweeping bay of Cala Galdana has a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of watersports suitable for people of all abilities, while the famous Balearic nightlife can be found at Cala'n Forcat. Finally, take the kids to visit the mysterious pre-historic monuments near Cuitadella and let their imaginations run wild.
