A diverse and beautiful archipelago, this heavenly location in the Mediterranean has been popular with visitors for years. Divided into two clusters of islands, the Balearics are some of the Mediterranean's most attractive destinations. The northern cluster, known as the Gimnesias, consists of Majorca and Menorca. To the south west are the Pitiusas, consisting of Ibiza and Formentera. A stay for a week in Balearic islands holiday apartments opens up a whole host of wonderful possibilities. Spending your vacation on the Balearic Islands would be lovely in every season, especially summer, but for those who are going during the winter and want guaranteed good weather should perhaps travel to one of the Canary Islands instead. Or, if you want to venture out of Spanish territory, how about luxury rental accommodation in Corsica or Sardinia for your summer break, both of which are very close.
Discover the uniqueness of each isle from your Balearic Islands holiday apartment
Each of these isles has its own character and unique emphasis, with the main industry now being tourism, though fishing and agriculture still remain important in some smaller areas. The 300 or so days of sunshine that archipelago offers is one of the reasons why visitors flock to rental properties here, as are the magnificent beaches and landscape views that can be found. The majority of rentals which are available here provide lots of great amenities and facilities, and all most every one has a swimming pool. The best thing about a stay in Balearic Islands holiday lettings, for example, in Palma de Mallorca, is that there is such a range of things to do, whether a visitor wants to be active outdoors and enjoy the view, relax on the beach or in the privacy of your pool, or party all night. Ibiza is where the younger crowds head to revel, while Mallorca has perhaps a more family friendly feel to it and booking a Balearic Islands holiday villa in this location might be more refined.
Something for every kind of taste on the Balearic Islands
Formentera is a tiny island, with a surface area of just 90 square kilometres or so, similar to the small isle of Gozo, and visitors can have a view of the sea from almost anywhere on it. This is a place where visitors who enjoy perfect, quiet beaches framed by pretty cliffs, with many secluded grottos to hide away in should book private holiday apartments in Balearic Islands, in a location such as Es Calo. Menorca is known for its breezy climate and passionate people, as well as an unspoilt interior, dotted with ancient ruins and remains. The popularity of a stay in Balearic Islands holiday homes can be seen by the sheer number of people who use the main airport in the region each year. More travellers pass through Palma de Mallorca than any other Spanish airport, a tremendous testimony to the enduring beauty and appeal thast these magnificent isles have to offer. Exploring the separate identities of each one would take a wonderful lifetime.
