Shortest Haul Summer Holidays: Balearic Islands

When you want to keep flight times and costs to a minimum, but you’re yearning for your own little spot on a sandy shoreline,  Majorca holidays or cheap holidays in Ibiza could be just what you’re looking for.

Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca are the three main tourist islands of the Balearics. Situated just off the east coast of mainland Spain, adjacent to Valencia, these Spanish isles are the ideal spot for short haul sojourns.

Despite such short flight times of less than two hours, visitors to the Balearics do not have to sacrifice a stunning summer climate. Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza all provide striking heats during peak summer season, when highs hover around 30 degrees C.

As they say, it is true that the Balearics has an island for everyone. Depending on your holiday style, there’s a Spanish spot here for all, from relaxing beach retreats to vibrant party capitals.

Blue flag beaches, world famous clubbing scenes and child friendly family attractions, all contribute to the versatility of the Balearics.

It goes without saying that Ibiza is definitely the party capital of the world. Every year hundreds of thousands of diehard party rockers and celebrities flock here for unforgettable sessions. Despite this world class reputation, Ibiza has a softer side more suited to family holidays.

Lovers of sugary sands and crystal clear waters will love the calming ambience of Menorca. Suitable for those looking for a laid back break, Menorca is the most peaceful island in the Balearics.

Active young travellers and families will find Majorca to be a home away from home. Palma Nova is a lively spot for your sojourn while Alcudia still has the attractions, but without the hustle and bustle of the southern resorts.
