The Balearics Islands Guide

A beautiful Spanish enclave set in the Mediterranean Sea - famous throughout the
world. Their climate, scenery and beaches are exceptional, and their inhabitants
have a tradition for being particularly hospitable. The capital of the islands -
Palma de Majorca - is 132 miles from Barcelona, 287 from Marseille, 172 from Algiers
and 140 from Valencia.
It would appear that these islands are the ideal location for resting and relaxing
since they contain all the necessary ingredients for achieving this aim: beautiful
scenery, forests, fertile farmlands, quiet and secluded beaches with crystal-clear
waters, interesting folklore and a mild climate.
In spite of the close proximity of the different islands and the very many common
ties between them, each one has its own very different landscape. Majorca has a
magnificent coastline consisting of rocky outcrops intermingled with many small
coves that offer excellent sandy beaches. Menorca, on the other hand, is noted for
its tranquillity, while Ibiza has a personality all of its won. Formentera and Cabrera
are extremely solitary islands.
