Just south of Barcelona in the Balearic Sea is the Balearic Islands, with the largest one named Majorca. The recommended times to travel would be during the months of May and October, keeping in mind that July and August are the most crowded. With a total of three hundred and seventy five advertised beaches between the four islands, you are sure to find a few to your liking.
There are times when deciding on a last minute Balearic Island holidays package would be worth your while, especially if those times happen to be in the slow season. While your weather conditions may not be ideal, your prices would be decidedly less expensive. The beaches are open all year around for your enjoyment and while the water conditions may be slightly cooler, you will have it all to yourself.
At least three of the islands stand ready to entertain you with a day full of fun filled water activities at their water parks. Make sure and check for hours of operation as some do not open all year around. Bring the entire family and enjoy rides on multi-slides, descending water Kamikaze like shoots, lazy rivers or wave pools and a pool designated just for parents and kids.
If you are fortunate enough to come across a last minute Balearic Islands holidays package for the peak season, then you are in luck, because not only will the price be right but so will the fun. Hiking is considered as a favorite past time on the islands and with so many venues to choose from like the beaches, state parks and other sights to see, is their any wonder?
As with other islands, water sports are in high demand. Whether your favorite is on top with Jet skiing, kayaking, under tow on a banana boat, or below with snorkeling and or diving, its all here. Join a group tour and head out for some fishing, or learn to sail while enjoying the sparkling Balearic sea. Nothing could be closer to paradise.
The opportunities are endless, with four islands to choose from, like traveling by bus to Formentor. This ride will afford you picturesque views like never before seen to a cove complimented by a beautiful beach. You can make the trek to S’Albufera des Grau (a nature reserve) or Es Freginal Park where you can enjoy everything that mother nature has to offer while relaxing to some jazz.
