Sink your toes into pristine white sands and gaze out across the azure ocean

The Balearic Islands are dazzlingly beautiful and, thanks to their Mediterranean setting, enjoy a balmy climate year-round. Ibiza is perhaps the most famous island of the archipelago, but if flashing the cash in the clubs of San Antonio isn't really your bag, then visit out of season to enjoy the island in its peaceful repose. Alternatively, you could head to Formentera - often referred to as Ibiza's little sister, this diminutive island makes a point of taking everything just that little bit easier. Majorca, known as the ‘Queen of the Mediterranean’ beckons with its sheltered coves and abundant countryside, while Minorca turns down the tempo even further with its tranquil coast and sleepy, white-washed villages.

Things to do

Breakfast on the terrace? Don't mind if I do. On all of our stay and relax holidays to the Balearics we've chosen the very best hotels in standout destinations. Explore the islands from home base, or drop in and visit on one of our Mediterranean cruises. Discover Majorca’s impressive Drachs cave system, stop for a spot of al fresco dining in the island's capital of Palma, or wander the elegant streets of Mahon in Minorca before whiling away the hours on the perfect Cala Blanca Beach. For active types a guided walking holiday through the picturesque hilltops and olive groves of Majorca might be just the thing.
