Luxury Balearic Islands Holidays

Spanish culture and island living

Balearic Islands

This cluster of Spanish islands adrift from the mainland is a holiday hotspot in the Mediterranean. Old favourite Majorca has drawn families to its big sandy beaches and charming Spanish villages for decades. The largest of the three, Majorca’s menu of activities and kid-friendly hotels makes it one of the best spots in the Med for family summer breaks.

Then there’s Ibiza, a little island with a big reputation. It’s not all raving and misbehaving, though – Ibiza is arguably the most beautiful out of the three main islands, with pristine beaches stretched between quiet fishing villages and lush, hilly landscapes. The nightlife and entertainment is there in spades too, if you fancy it.

Menorca is the baby of the Balearics; compact and easy to get around, expect peaceful towns, pretty scenery and a laid-back vibe.

Destinations in Balearic Islands
Ibiza
Ibiza’s reputation precedes it – this one-time hippie haunt is now a blend of care-free beach towns and daisy-white villages. The pine-backed dunes of Formentera island are just next door, too.
Majorca
Majorca really earns its stripes as the most popular island in the Balearics. Beautiful beach resorts, artists’ retreats, mountain villages and a culture-packed capital city – it offers them all.
Menorca
Menorca is one of the smallest and quietest islands in the Balearics. Sandy coves and lighthouses jigsaw the coastline, sanctuaries and pine forests disappear inland, and there’s a Georgian capital.
Flight Information

Around 2 hours 15 minutes from the UK.

When to go

The Balearic Islands’ summer highs are a big part of their appeal. Spring and autumn stay warm, while summer peaks at around 29°C, with up to 11 hours of sunshine a day. Menorca tends to be a couple of degrees cooler, which works out for active types who are taking in the scenery on foot or by bike.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
