Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands are one of the autonomous communities of Spain, consisting of a single province. It is located 100-200 km east of the Iberian Peninsula, in the western basin of the Mediterranean Sea.

Nowadays, the islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera are the most popular vacation spots in Europe thanks to its pleasant climate. The native language is Catalan, but everyone speaks Spanish.

Cala Banyalbufar – Mallorca
This popular swimming spot isn’t exactly a beach, but the water is brilliant blue and is certainly worth a visit whilst you’re sailing the Balearic Islands. Dry off and continue on to Sóller, a small, elegant port surrounded by impressive scenery and an old, wooden tram that will take you to the narrow, cobbled streets of the town center.

Porto Cristo – Mallorca
Porto Cristo offers great protection, plenty of berths, beautiful scenery, rich history and you can end the day enjoying dinner at one of the delicious local restaurants.

Cala Mondragó Natural Park – Mallorca
This park is a bird sanctuary and famous for its fine white sandy beaches and the unbelievable crystal-clear water.

If you’re wondering what to do in Ibiza, you’ll find several well-equipped marinas, a wide range of bars, restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs and late-night fun for all ages. Or in the day, you can enjoy the beautiful beaches.

Summers are hot and dry with temperatures peaking at an average of 26 Celsius degrees in June to 31 Celsius degrees in July and August. Mallorca tends to be the warmest of the islands peaking at 31.5 Celsius degrees in August. The islands receive between 5-15 mm of rainfall.

The Balearic Islands are pretty windy, especially from October to April, due to the mild, southwest wind that blows in bad weather, and to the northern wind that blows from France. In summer, sea breezes blow, but they are welcome because they make the heat more bearable.

The language spoken is Spanish.
Citizens from countries outside the European Union are required to present a passport valid for at least three months beyond the intended stay in Italy.

The currency is the EURO (EUR).
MasterCard and American Express are widely accepted but you may be charged a service fee if you pay by card.
