Only 2 hours away and boasting amazing weather, beautiful beaches and a lovely Mediterranean feel, the Balearic Islands, are the perfect sun destination for UK holidaymakers.

Majorca has it all: the beaches, the parties, nature and a great foodie scene. Together, this makes the biggest of the Balearic Islands the perfect holiday spot for pretty much everybody.
Majorca also offers a great range of activities that will seduce thrill seekers, culture vultures and sun chasers alike!

Menorca, (Majorca’s little sister island) is the quieter and more authentic island of the two, making it  a great holiday destination  for those looking to recharge their  batteries in serenity.
Menorca is the perfect island for family holidays, especially if you have young kids!

No surprises here: if you are into partying, beautiful sunsets and a relaxed hippy vibe, Ibiza is the island for you!
But If you are not so keen on all-day clubbing, head North of the island, where you will find nice sandy coves and a quieter atmosphere!




Formentera is the smallest and least accessible Balearic Island which makes it perfect if you are looking for a ‘secluded island’ kind of vibe. Here you will find unspoilt nature, beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters. Formentera is perfect for holidaymakers in search of an authentic, off the beaten track destination!

    I enjoy nightlife and clubbing in Ibiza, but I also enjoy relaxing with friends in front of the sea while eating a delicious paella.
