Who doesn’t look forward to going on a vacation, right?
If you like Spanish food and culture, there are a lot of beautiful places you can visit between the Spanish mainland and its islands. If you’re traveling from Europe, head for the Balearics. Discover Mallorca on a motorbike, take a stroll in historical Menorca, dance till you drop in Ibiza, or get away from it all in dreamy Formentera.
If you’re after sunny weather, you can pretty much go there any time of year. Summertime is hot and very busy with tourists so avoid if you’re in need of tranquillity. If you plan to explore and travel during your vacation, renting a car is easy to organise from the airport.
There’s plenty to do in the Balearics, each island has something special and interesting.
If you like architecture, you’ll love Palma de Mallorca. In Mallorca, you can visit beautiful churches, monasteries, and old villages. The architecture of Mallorca is beautiful and it’s no wonder many wealthy Europeans buy property there. If you like medieval architecture, take a trip to the medieval walled town of Alcúdia. The medieval walled town of Alcúdia is located in the north of the island. This is one of the best-preserved medieval towns. Near one of these churches, tourists can visit the archaeological site of the Roman city of Pollentia.
For a family vacation, you should visit Menorca. Although close to Spain and France and easily accessible by Ferry, this small island is not as frequented by tourists, and favored by Spaniards. So if you want a real taste of Spanish life, you’ll be spoiled. Do rent a car so you can visit both Mahon and Ciutadella.
Formentera simply has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, and a hippy vibe. One of the best ways to get around the island is via bicycle. If you want to feel the history of the island, you should visit the historic town of Sant Francesco de Formentera.
If you’re going on a vacation with friends, and you’re looking for a party destination, there is no better place than Ibiza. Ibiza is famous for its amazing nightlife, techno clubs, boat parties and beach bars. However, you’ll also discover beautiful nature and coastline, as well as its charming Old Town of Eivissa. It was once a medieval town, and that atmosphere can still be found within the walls of the town.
So now that you found out a bit more about the Balearic islands, have you decided which one you want to visit first?…
