Things to see and do in the Balearics

Holidays in the Balearic Islands tend to centre around the beach. But there's plenty to do besides swimming and sunbathing. Boat trips, water sports, hiking, horse riding, sightseeing, golf, shopping, and water parks are all available depending on where you stay. 


Nightlife across the Balearics varies greatly. Ibiza is synonymous with clubbing thanks to world-famous venues. In Majorca, Magaluf and Palma Nova are the party hotspots. Elsewhere on the island, the pace of life is slower and more suited to couples and families. Menorca has a good choice of bars in its larger resorts, but these tend to be more family-orientated and don't attract crowds of young revellers.
