Ibiza and the Balearic Islands Vacations

Spain's Balearic Islands are as different as night and day. The four major islands -- Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera -- offer just about every type of Spanish island vacation imaginable. To visit the nighttime Balearics, head to Ibiza, where many people arrive on the sandy shores of Ibiza with one thing in mind: nightlife. Ibiza's ... Read more
legendary nightclubs often take the top spots in 'best club in the world' lists. If you are awake during the daytime hours, take advantage of Ibiza's beach-related pursuits: boating, parasailing and dining on fresh seafood. If you're on vacation for more daytime activities, head to Mallorca for package holidays and hiking, the biosphere reverse of Menorca for isolated coves and sustainable travel, or Formentera for a casual, hippie vibe. The most visited island by far is Mallorca. The historic richness of the culture runs deep, which is how the island manages to host 11 million visitors without losing all of its natural or historic charms.

Ibiza (Eivissa in Catalan) is known for endless partying in Mediterranean macro-clubs. However, there is another side to the island. The Greeks called Ibiza and Formentera the Islas Pitiusas (Islands of Pine Trees). About half the island of Ibiza (especially in the northeast) remains covered by these thick woods. Alongside hardy pines, the most common crops are olives, figs and almonds and, away from the main resorts and towns, the island has a gentle rural charm.

Known as the birthplace of the rave, Ibiza has some of Spain's most (in)famous clubs and plenty of bars. But coastal walking trails, woods and quiet (if not deserted) beaches allow you to enjoy the outdoors and admire the natural beauty of the islands.

Off the coast of Valencia. There are beautiful beaches. Ibiza is the most well known of these islands, followed by Fomentara. Known for nightclubs and decadance, Ibiza also has a luxurious inland that is mellow and beautiful. There are many wonderful villas you can rent to get away from it all. Just a really relaxed vibe. They are trying to become more family friendly, but it is still largely a paradise for twenty somethings with a bit of cash and swagger.
