Balearic Islands

What you need to know before you go

    The Balearic Islands are about as diverse as they are spread out. And it’s not just the weather that attracts tourists from all corners of the globe. For scenic beaches and bays filled with turquoise waters, Mallorca and Menorca are hard to beat. Prefer to let your hair down for a night of boogying on the sand? Ibiza is a European mecca for nightlife.

    Head to Mallorca’s capital, Palma, to explore architectural masterpieces by Antoni Gaudí, and taste dishes inspired by Spanish, Mediterranean and African cuisine, such as pork wrapped in cabbage or noodle paella. Get off the beaten path by exploring the largely unspoilt smaller islands of Formentera or Dragonera. Nature, history and culture have all left their mark on the Balearic Islands.
