Holidays in the Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands have become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. This is primarily thanks to its outstanding location, its mild year-round climate and, above all, the appeal of its captivating landscapes and white sandy beaches, where the Mediterranean never ceases to enchant visitors. Summer is the most intense period on the Balearic Islands, as this is when the tourist resorts fill up with thousands of visitors and famous stars from around the world, creating a cosmopolitan atmosphere and meeting point for people who really want to enjoy their holidays.

The Balearic Islands are indeed four different realities, very close to each other at the same time. In Formentera and Menorca they have managed to preserve its natural environment, which is closely linked to the Mediterranean sea and hence includes a number of exceptionally beautiful beaches. In Ibiza in addition, we find a warm and tolerant atmosphere that makes after dark a unique and exclusive experience. Meanwhile in Mallorca, being the biggest of the four island we find a little bit of everything. The city of Palma de Mallorca stands with its historical legacy and cosmopolitan atmosphere, as well as the charming villages inland and in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains.

The accommodation available for your holidays in the Balearic Islands primarily consists of excellent-value 3 and 4-star hotels and apartments. Nevertheless, there is a wide range of all sorts of accommodation, with a variety of luxurious and exclusive hotels as well as budget options. July and August are the hottest months and this is when demand is greatest, meaning that prices are higher and there is less availability, so it is advisable to book well in advance if you plan to take your holidays in this period. The weather is also good in May, June, September and October, and during these months visitors can swim in the sea without the crowds of high summer. During the rest of the year it is worth bearing in mind that many hotels and other types of accommodation close.

Due to the Balearic Islands popularity as a tourist destination, there are many direct flights from most of the principal European cities, especially from Germany, the United Kingdom and Spain.
