Make a holiday rental, home, or villa on Balearic Islands your home away from home

Accommodations on Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands are a province of islands about 100km off the east coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. The area has become a favourite destination for visitors seeking holiday homes alongside beautiful beaches, good food, and an exciting nightlife. There are various islands to choose from, each with their own feel thanks to the area’s history of many occupying forces including the Greeks, Romans, and Moors. With such eclectic influences as well as different landscapes, holiday homes on the Balearic Islands offer something for everyone. The most coveted spots for a holiday rental, home, or villa on Balearic Islands include Mallorca (Majorca), Menorca (Menorca), Ibiza, and Formentera.

Places to holiday on Balearic Islands

Mallorca - As the largest island of the Balearics, Mallorca is one of Europe's top holiday destinations. Because of its size, holiday homes on the Balearics have so much to offer from gorgeous beaches and exciting nightlife in the busy city centres of the south like Cala Pi and Sa Rapita to beautiful views of mountainous regions in the north like Santa Ponsa, Soller area, and Andratx. Holiday villas in the capital city ofPalma de Mallorca are known for being some of the Mediterranean's most beautiful and luxurious. And while you’re holiday home may be heavenly, be sure to take a boat trip from the south east to the beautiful untouched region of Cabrera. The clear waters are a dream come true for SCUBA divers and snorkellers.

Menorca - In the far east of the Balearic Islands, holiday home seekers will find Menorca to be the most tranquil and unspoilt region of the three main islands. Holiday rentals in South and East Menorca are ideal for families looking to escape the wild nightlife that makes the other islands notorious. Instead holiday homes in Menorca offer uncrowded beaches and traditional fishing towns. Visitors travel far and wide to indulge in Menorca’s fresh seafood.

Ibiza - the Island closest to the mainland, Ibiza is known as the party capital of Europe. It has some of the biggest and best nightclubs in the world, attracting A-list celebrities and some of Europe’s poshest partygoers. However don’t be fooled into believing that’s all the island has to offer. Visitors staying at holiday homes and villas, a short distance away from the two main club areas of Ibiza town and San Antonio, will easily discover a lesser-known Ibiza with traditional Spanish villages alongside orange and lemon groves and beautiful cliffs and mountains like Sant Agustin and Santa Eulalia. There are also colourful street markets and local fiestas where the locals gather but.

Fromentera - An hour ferry ride from Ibiza town, Fromentera is rumoured to be the Mediterranean’s best kept secret. Holiday homes in the area are ideal for nature lovers. Homes are amid a paradise of gorgeous, clean beaches, clear waters, and hidden coves.

Things to do on Balearic Islands

Because of the range of things to do in the Balearic Islands, visitors staying at holiday homes will find it difficult to be bored. Depending on which island or islands you choose to explore, there is something for everyone. Most activities focus around the various bays, beaches, and rugged landscapes and cliffs. Majorca has the largest mountains of the islands, with some reaching 1,445 metres (Puig Major) and 1,340 metres (Puig de Massanella). The region is also famous for caves of extraordinary beauty, that include the Drach and the Arta caves in Majorca, and Xoroi cave in Minorca. All of the beaches in the area are well known for their exquisite beauty. But be sure to not get stuck lounging around the whole time. Take advantage of the facilities and services on the major islands, including jet skis and parasailing. For golf lovers, the best location is Mallorca, especially in the area of Capdepera. Art historians should check out the Mallorca Museum. It contains important archaeological remains. There are also paintings, Renaissance and Baroque ceramics, and a section with modern furniture.

Nightlife on the Balearic Islands cannot go unspoken for. The islands are home to some of the best nightclubs in the world and while some may be difficult to get into, there are numerous places letting in partygoers with open arms. Most of these places stay open late, so think of your night ending at noon not midnight.

Weather on Balearic Islands

Like the rest of the Mediterranean, the Balearic Islands can get a little more rain than the mainland, as well as hotter temperatures in the summer. Therefore when planning to stay at a holiday home, people generally prefer to go during the pleasant or hot temperatures from April to early November.

Travel to Balearic Islands

If you plan on traveling solely to the Balearic Islands, it is best to fly directly to the islands and avoid the mainland. Cheap flights are readily available through Ryanair and easyJet. However if you're already in Spain, the cheapest flights are usually out of Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia or Malaga. Also you can often arrange a cheap flight back to the mainland.

Another option in making the trip to Balearic Islands is by boat. The Buque rapido is operated by Trasmediterranea. There's only one a day in the mid-and high season. The same company also operates a fast ferry between Valencia and Palma that stops in Ibiza en route. The third option is the buque convencionale, a slow ferry that operates all year. These go from Barcelona every day.

                                                              We stayed in the Penthouse Apartment, Camp de Lom, Pollensa the first week of May, and it was perfect! Really easy to find, lots of free on-street parking right outside the door and, due to its location practically on the 'Cockerel roundabout', very easy to drive anywhere from, as well. If you were not hiring a car it would also be easy to base yourself here as there is a local bus stop about 50 yards away and buses to Lluc within about a 10 minute walk. There is a local supermarket, some upmarket foody shops and several bakeries/coffee shops, bars and restaurants all within a couple of minutes’ walk so everything is really handy. The main town square, the roman bridge and the bottom of the famous steps are all less than a 10 minute walk away. The listing was very accurate, the apartment was well equipped and excellently presented. The terrace is huge and has sunbeds, a table and chairs, a built-in barbecue and of course the plunge pool (bit cold in May, only paddled in it!). I spent quite a lot of lovely sunny hours on the terrace and noise was not an issue at all, despite the proximity to the road - only once when some military planes were doing their thing one morning - but that would affect everyone within 10 miles of Pollensa. Downsides - can hardly think of any, but I guess if I owned the apartment I might make three improvements : (a) I would invest in ventilation in the shower room - you have to leave the door open for the steam to disappear gradually (which it does quite quickly) (b) I might buy a slightly more comfortable/larger sofa (although what is there is perfectly acceptable) and (c) I would stick a headboard on the beds to make sitting up reading in bed slightly easier. But these are VERY small, picky points and I would very happily stay in this apartment again, and hope to do so. You do have to be prepared to climb the 3 flights of stairs to the flat, as described in the advert - so don't book it if mobility is an issue for you. Broadband is provided - code inside house. It’s a great apartment and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
