The brightest stars of Los Baleares are Majorca, Ibiza and peaceful Minorca. Situated between France and Africa, the archipelago's islands each have distinct characters. Majorca is the most developed and offers a mass of hotels, fast food joints and crowded beaches. Ibiza is loved by a hard partying set, including many gay visitors. It is also increasingly popular with upscale travelers, drawn by the chameleon island's reputation as "the new Provence." Pick an island and stake a claim on its sand.

A craggy, limestone mountain range stretching the length of the northwest coast of the island.
Majorka was for me very underestimate destination - I thought that this island is only for beach loafers. That was really big mistake! This was our second trip only on foot and I can recommend it to everyone who is not beginner and who has some experiences. We went from Sant Elm to Soller (+- 85 km), track was hard because of bad rainy weather, so it was dangerous - dry stones changed to wet and every step was like going on soap floor. There was no chance how to finished GR221, even bus from Lluc was stopped because of wheater. So we moved to San Picaford (eastern coast) and there we started GR 222, which is no less beautiful and wheater there was better (+- 55 km). People there are pleasant, nature very very beautiful, food excellent, accommodation very various in comfort and also prices, we tried everything from sleeping outside to 4* superb hotel - each way was magnificent. Thumbs up for Majorka :)

A guide will teach you amazing facts about these ancient birds, in a safe and respectful environment. Tours are interesting, fun and very surprising. If you prefer not to go for a guided tour, you are welcome to meet the ostriches by yourself. Please check website for current prices and timetables.
This place is quite unique. It is a bit rough around the edges but for us this only added to the charm. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If they got tired of answering my children’s many, many questions it didn’t show! We had a fabulous time learning all sorts of interesting facts and were lucky enough to come home with an ostrich egg thanks to a very kind Italian family. This has gone to school so we can share the ostrich love with our friends in Newcastle!

You should go there by bicycle, nice views around, Salinas and nude beaches. In the end of you trip you will see the best beach in the world. Clear water, dorado swimming, yacht, not many people around.

This is an absolutely beautiful beach which is surrounded by pine forests and has crystal clear blue sea. The beach is also very clean and well-kept and it had a very calm and relaxed feel. It is advisable to drive to the beach and be warned that the carpark has a limited amount of space and once it's full, they don't let any more cars in, so to guarantee getting in it's best to aim to arrive by 9.15am (I know it's an early wake up but it's worth it). it is a 25 minute walk through pine forests from the carpark to Cala Macarella which is also beautiful but larger and less secluded. To get to Cala Macaraletta, it is a 5-10 minute walk up and down the adjacent cliff (there is a clear and relatively safe path) which has some amazing views of both beaches from the top. There is also a friendly and funny man who makes freshly-made mojitos (classic or with raspberries and blueberries) at the corner of the beach which are 7 euros each and were some of the most delicious mojitos I've ever had. They are well worth trying! All in all,if you want a day at a beautiful beach, this should definitely be on your itinerary.

€7 to rent a sun bed We had to wait in a line for 25 minutes in the scorching sun to enter the other side of the beach as they didn’t want everyone together the beach is very small for the amount of people there. However walk is very tiring up the hill to get to the other beach but many beautiful views

I love this area. It is absolutely stunning. There are two beaches of beautiful whitish sand. It's very hot here as it is surrounded by trees and rocks. The sea is beautifully clear. It's worth a day out here. You can go by car " Hire one for the day" or if you are lucky enough to stay in Cala Dor there is a boat trip from Cala Gran beach which you should be able to book through your hotel. It's a good day out.
