The largest of the Balearic Islands is Majorca which is also the most frequently visited island by tourists in the high season. Despite the fact that the island has seen several major developments being built over the last few years, Majorca still boasts many areas of natural unspoilt beauty. Popular activities include golf, rock climbing, sailing and cycling, although the vast majority of holidaymakers are more than content to simply chill out on the beach and soak up the sun.
Menorca is the second largest of the Balearics and is the perfect choice for those seeking a more private and peaceful break in the sun. Here, the beaches are seldom overcrowded and finding a quiet spot where you can relax on your own is a much simpler task. Mahon, the capital city, is home to the biggest natural harbour in Europe which is excellent for sea side strolls and sightseeing. Throughout the evenings, there are several bars and restaurants to visit around the harbour and the atmosphere always remains low key.
If you're in search of something a bit more energetic, then you're best bet would be to spend your holidays in Ibiza. The nightlife here is a constant hive of buzzing activity thanks to a multitude of bars and clubs which never seem to close. Throughout the daytime there are also plenty of stimulating places to visit including health spas, miles of beaches and a myriad of bars, restaurants and swimming pools where you can eat, drink and bask in the sun to your heart's content.
