Why go?

It's easy to find hotels in Balearic Islands destinations with the search tool on TravelSupermarket...

So where will you book Balearic Islands accommodation? You've got a difficult choice ahead of you. Do you go for the family-friendly vibe in cultured and beautiful Majorca? Perhaps the nightclubs and beaches of Ibiza are more to your taste? Menorca is the perfect spot for those who like things a little quieter. Formentera should get a look in, too - it's harder to reach than the three main islands but that makes it a haven of tranquillity.

From late spring to early autumn visitors arrive in droves at the islands' airports, transferring to a range of holiday resorts and hotels. July and August are the peak tourism months on all of the islands and your dream hotel should be booked as early as possible to secure the best price. There isn't much in the way of winter sun in the Balearic Islands, though visitors do come to see attractions in destinations such as the city of Palma and in Dalt Vila, Ibiza's medieval old town.

Wherever you choose to stay, car hire is a great investment as there's much to see and do around your chosen island.

Top five attractions

Clubbing in Ibiza

The island of Ibiza is suitable for families and couples, while yoga devotees enjoy the country retreats, but this island has a reputation as a party capital for a host of great reasons. The super clubs between Ibiza Town and San Antonio are world famous and summer time is electric around here.

Culture and shopping in Palma

For a different take on island life, visit Majorca's capital of Palma, where the curvy edifice of Bellver Castle stands watch above the city. You'll find plenty of shops, plus art galleries and museums in Palma.

Walking in Menorca

Menorca's beaches are hard to leave once you've settled on to those fine sands, but to get a little more active pick up one of the walking trails that crisscross the island. El Camí de Cavalls, a well-known coastal trail, is one of the best.

Family fun in Majorca

Water parks, the Caves of Drach, lively resorts, the tourist train at Soller... Majorca has much to offer  families of all ages.

Enjoying the seaside in Formentera

The beaches of the Balearic Islands are some of the best in Europe, but Formentera holds a mystical allure for those with a penchant for white sands and clear shallow waters. Apart from the resort of Es Pujols, this island has been largely untouched by humans. It's simply spectacular.

What's on?

From the summer party nights of Ibiza to religious festivals in Menorca, there's always something happening across the Balearic Islands...

Eivissa Medieval Festival in Ibiza; May: The cobbled, narrow streets and bustling squares of medieval Dalt Vila in Ibiza Town come alive with the sounds, smells and tastes of the past during this annual nod to medieval days gone by.

Nit de Foc (Night of Fire) in Majorca; June:
This event is one of the biggest annual parties in Majorca and you shouldn't miss it if you can get to Palma in June. See fireworks, bonfires, concerts and naughty “demons” and then dance the night away in Parc de Mar.

Festa de Sant Llorenc in Menorca; August:
This huge party in Alaior is a remarkable thing to be a part of in usually hushed Menorca. Eat paella, hear music, see the cavalcade of horse riders and feel very much a part of local life during this summer event.
