The beautiful Balearics are great for partying, lively culture, lovely resorts and days spent lazing on the softest, warmest sand by the sea. With cheap deals on beach holidays to the Balearic Islands, now is your time to go. 

Holidays are meant for adventure. With such a variety of activities, your beach holiday in the Balearic Islands is bound to be the one of your dreams. 

Protected by UNESCO for their environments, the Balearic Islands are ideal places for those wanting to reconnect with nature.  Take a boat trip out to spot dolphins or to check out the coastline made up of rocky cliffs, forests, caves and cove beaches. The Balearics have tons of natural wildlife made up of laurel, juniper, pine and almond trees, beautiful flowers such as hibiscus and almond blossom as well as protected species of birds, insects and lizards.

With some of the most famous nightclubs, restaurants and bars in the world, holidays to the Balearics promise you a good time. Spend your days in the colourful flea markets, art galleries, museums and restaurants and your nights enjoying the local cuisine and nightlife. Looking for something less full-on? How does a gentle cruise out to sea to watch the sun set sound?  Whether you’re travelling with children, in a couple, all alone or with your closest mates, the Balearic Islands are perfect for everyone.

Sometimes you just have to escape the beach. Why not take a boat out to the Cavern of the Dragon and the pearl factory in Mallorca, or an excursion to the Parc Natural S’Albufera des Grau in Menorca. Perhaps you fancy a bit of thrill seeking at one of the island’s water parks? For animal lovers, there are a number of zoos, aquariums and small parks which are ideal to escape to from the hustle and bustle of the resorts.

Foodies: Food in the Balearics has a mix of Catalan, Moorish, Mediterranean and Spanish influences, and features lots of fresh seafood and local ingredients.
