Out of the 1.6 million Brits who booked Spain holidays last summer
, over 26 per cent of travellers
opted to stay in Ibiza, Majorca or Menorca – but why?
Less than two hours away from the UK, your journey to the Balearics is over before its begun, meaning those soft sands are between yourtoes in no time. Discounted holiday companies, such as Direct Holidays, also offer bargain baseline prices on packages to the islands and other Spain holidays, making these destinations affordable for all, whatever your budget.
In addition to the convenience of the Balearics to the Brits, Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca are three completely distinctive destinations, offering varied holiday styles. Whether you prefer to kick back and relax with a poolside read, or party from dusk ‘til dawn, there’s a resort to suit every type of traveller.
Ibiza is known for its hardcore party scene, and rightly so – it’s only one of the best in the world. But if you’re less San Antonio, and more sandcastles and safe shorelines, Es Cana is an excellent option. Developments in recent years have created a real family friendly ambience on this island.
Majorca is arguably the most developed of the three islands, with a good selection of attractions and activities in most resorts. Palma is a contemporary choice for couples, while Magaluf will keep group of young singles party rocking all week long. Alcudia has some low-key days out, as well as calm waters for tots and toddlers.
When all you want to do is reserve a sun lounger and make the most of those beautiful beams of sunshine, Menorca could be the island for you. With awe-inspiring cliffs, beautiful flora and fauna and a never-ending collection of beaches, this is the perfect place for anyone who wants to escape and rejuvenate.
