In the balmy Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Catalonia, lie the Balearic Islands, 'islands of eternal spring' and one of Spain's most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world. Thanks to a climate that is mild year-round, the Balearic Islands and their beaches are the go-to destination for a camping holiday.
Be amazed by Ibiza's marine ecosystem, explore the architecture of its upper town and then let yourself be carried away by the elegance of the restaurants and the lively nightlife. In Ibiza you will find fine sand, but also incredibly lush forests, where you can recharge your batteries with adventure and vitamin D.
Hire a moped or bicycle and explore Formentera, the smallest and most unspoilt of the Balearic Islands. Visit the salt flats, watch the pink flamingos, search for a stretch of beach just for yourself and enjoy the wild beauty the island has to offer. The island is popular with kite-surfers too.
If you are looking for destinations off the beaten track, choose Menorca, a wonderful alternation of coves and inlets, cliffs and lush hilly landscapes. Indulge in the scents of orange groves and olive groves, visit Ciutadella de Minorca and its blend of Arab and European culture, trek up Monte Toro and enjoy a traditional meal in the effervescent capital Mahon.
And finally, how could we forget Mallorca, the largest and most beach-rich island, where you can fill up on sun and sea at numerous pretty resort towns, but also admire villages such as Banyalbufar and Fornalutx, walk through old towns dotted with Art Nouveau buildings and stop for a cocktail in the shady little squares of Palma like the locals. Cyclists flock here too, to take on legendary routes like Sa Calobra and Cap Formentor.
The Balearic Islands are much more than their sea. Book a camping holiday and discover their immeasurable treasures.
