About Mallorca and the Balearics

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza feature the best four and five star hotels on each of the islands, including prestigious hillside properties, beach hotels and boutique retreats. Lying around 100 miles from the Spanish mainland in the Mediterranean Sea is Mallorca (otherwise known as Majorca), the largest of the Balearic Islands and an incredibly popular destination for tourists. With sun, sea and sand in abundance, the island's attraction as a beach holiday destination is obvious. However, step away from the beaches and you'll find rugged mountains, picturesque rural villages, hilltop monasteries, extensive underground caves, pretty harbours and much more. The islands of Menorca and Ibiza capture the dynamic landscape of Mallorca but on a more intimate scale. Our tailor-made luxury holidays allow you to discover the very best of the Balearic Islands. In the southwest of Mallorca is Palma, a seaside city with an abundance of historical and cultural sights. Dominating the island's west coast are the Tramuntana mountains, where pretty villages sit amidst olive terraces, terraced farmland clings to steep slopes and rugged cliffs drop away to the sparkling sea. In eastern Mallorca is a smaller mountain range which gives way to sand dunes and remote beaches, whilst the unspoilt scenery of the south includes nature reserves, secluded coves and charming fishing villages. The centre of the island is home to a fertile plain, an area with ancient windmills, vineyards and sleepy market towns which offer a glimpse into Mallorca's rural traditions. With a number of interesting towns and villages, stunning beaches and a great variety in the natural scenery, the Balearics are outstanding holiday destinations with plenty of opportunities for activities as well as seaside relaxation. Many of the popular tourist resorts are in the north and west of Mallorca, but there are many places to discover in other parts of the island. The varied terrain provides excellent opportunities for cycling and hiking, with numerous trails which are suited to walkers of all ages and fitness levels. Cuitadella, in Menorca, has an enchanting old town and archaeological sites, while Mahon, the island's capital, is one of the Mediterranean's most picturesque cities. Well-known for its appeal with tourists, Ibiza is also home to a wealth of tranquil coves, lush forests, and small villages which encapsulate the Balearics' laid-back lifestyle.

Highlights of Mallorca and the Balearic Islands

Mallorca: Palma de Mallorca, home to attractions such as the Gothic La Seu Cathedral which sits overlooking the harbour, 10th century Arab baths and authentic old streets. The pretty villages including Deià, Valldemossa and Fornalutx which you will encounter if you drive along the winding roads which run along the western coast, set between mountains and sea. Appealing coastal resorts including Alcúdia, Puerto Pollensa and Puerto de Soller. Hilltop sanctuaries which are dotted throughout the island, including Lluc Monastery in the Tramuntana mountains and the Sanctuary of Sant Salvador in the south east of the island. Traditional fishing villages such as Cala Figuera. Beautiful beaches including Es Trenc, Es Carbo and Cala Barques. The Caves of Drach near Porto Christo. Formentor, the peninsula in the northeast of the island which is home to a famous lighthouse in a stunning location. Natural parks including S'Albufera wetlands near Alcúdia, Llevant Peninsula nature reserve in the north east and the Cabrera archipelago off the southern coast of Mallorca. Ibiza: The dark sands and rocky cliffs of Cala Boix. The bohemian market at the bottom of the hills around San Carles. Clear-water beaches including Benirras and Cala Saladas. Boat trips to neighbouring Formentera to see the windmills and cycle or hike across the hills. Menorca: The hiking trails around Mount Toro.

Gastronomy of the Balearic Islands

Traditional cuisine in the Balearic Islands is rich and varied, making excellent use of the abundant local ingredients including pork, fish and vegetables as well as olive oil and lard. Olives, almonds and citrus fruit are grown across the island, as are the grapes which are used to produce a selection of white, rosé and red wines. Local specialities in the Balearics include ‘Sobrasada’ (a type of sausage), ‘Arros Brut’ (saffron rice cooked with meat and vegetables), ‘Frit mallorqui’ (fried offal with potatoes and vegetables) and ‘Ensaimada’ (a sweet bun). Local desserts are made with almonds or nougat, and seafood dishes, including ‘Caldereta de Ilagosta’ (lobster stew), are a staple. Speciality spirits from Menorca include Maó Gin, made from juniper berries, and Port. The Hierbas Ibicencas, and Frígola in Ibiza are aromatic drinks built around aniseed and thyme respectively.

Climate of the Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands have a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild and stormy winters. There is some variation across Mallorca as the Tramuntana Mountains protect the southwest of the island. Average summer temperatures are around 25 degrees, when seas are also warm and a cooling breeze prevents excessive heat. Spring and autumn are great seasons to visit as temperatures are pleasant but there are fewer tourists, although nights can be cold and there is some rainfall. Average temperatures in winter are around 10 degrees with occasional showers and snow falling in the mountains.
