Holidays in Balearics

The Balearic Islands off the west coast of Spain include Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza, along with several smaller islands scattered in the Mediterranean Sea. Each has its own identity and personality, with beautiful beaches, towns and buzzing nightlife.

Majorca is the largest island, and its capital, Palma, is also the capital of the Balearics – but it’s still relatively small and manageable by mainland city standards. The resort of Magaluf has a reputation for its nightlife, often appealing to large groups of young people as its bars and clubs are open until the early hours. Elsewhere, Majorca’s beaches and coves are beautiful and the best way to spend a day with family or friends.

Menorca is the next down in size, and is generally considered the place to go for a calmer, quieter holiday. The most rural of the main islands, much of the countryside is still untouched (thanks to the island being declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) and there are only two fairly small cities– Mao and Ciudadela.

Ibiza, though smaller, is by no means any less exciting. With a well-earned reputation as the clubbing capital of Europe, its world-famous clubs are hugely popular from June to September, when their parties are quite something to experience. Young people flock to San Antonio for its clubs, bars and pubs. Nab a good table early at Cafe Mambo and you’ll get a breath-taking view of the sun setting while sipping a delicious cocktail. Ibiza can be a great destination for families, as well. Away from the clubbing hubs, there’s a choice of beaches and small towns to relax in.

Top Towns in the Balearic Islands

Palma

It’s not often a capital city is the place to go for a bit of respite, but this is the case in Majorca. Away from the chaos of Magaluf, Palma is a calmer place to explore – but it still has its own buzz. With a mix of the old town, bustle of shops and restaurants, and choice of watersports to try out, you’re certainly not going to get bored.

Ibiza Town

Ibiza Town’s old quarter is a UNESCO-protected maze of cobbled streets, where there’s a pleasant collection of restaurants and bars. A cathedral sits up on a hill with a view of the harbour – and you’ll feel a million miles away from the revellers.

Ciudadela

One of the two main towns in Menorca, Ciudadela sits high above a harbour, and it’s easy to navigate your way around on foot. In the Spanish tradition, the centre is within fortified stone walls, hiding away ornate old churches and palaces, opening out into cafe and restaurant-filled plazas.

Things to Do in Balearics

Exploring Balearics

Hike the Serra de Tramuntana

Whether you want to work off your holiday excesses, or you’re a hiking pro, there’s a range of trails you can take on at Serra de Tramuntana in Majorca. Some of these trails are suitable for kids if you’re with the family and there’s also the chance to try out canyoning. A draw for hikers from all over the world, climbing the steep slopes is worth it for the views at the top.

Visit the Menorca Cheese Museum

Menorca is famous for its cheese and this is just the place to find out all about how it’s produced and to try some samples for yourself. The site also has a restaurant and winery – the perfect excuse to eat even more cheese.

Take a trip to S’Espalmador

A smaller island situated between Ibiza and Formentera, take a boat ride here to escape the crowds and indulge in the island’s relaxing mud baths in a rare bit of peace and quiet.

Browse the Market of Es Cana

Nicknamed the ‘Hippie Market’, Es Cana is on the east side of Ibiza – where everything is more family-friendly as it’s out of the way of the clubs and bars. The market is a vibrant hub of creativity, where you can find every form of arts and crafts you can imagine.

Food and drink in Balearics

Spanish cuisine

Fresh and flavourful, Spanish tapas dishes never taste quite as good as when they’re eaten in their native environment. From spicy chunks of chorizo to crispy squid, it’s all about ordering delicious small plates to be shared – so you can try as many dishes as possible. Wash it down with a glass of red wine, or get a jug of Sangria for a traditional experience.

Balearics restaurants

Seafood is a big thing on all the Balearic Islands – Menorca is known for caldereta de langosta, aka lobster stew, and Ibizan restaurants have great shellfish dishes. However, don’t forget to try some famous Menorcan cheese – ideally in one of the clifftop restaurants looking out over the sea.
