Why Visit
If the temperamental North of Europe August is too much to handle just a three hour flight will transport holidaymakers to a different world of blue skies and warm seas! Whilst beaches throughout the whole of the Balearics are amongst the best in the Mediterranean and the World, there are some that are special highlights. In Ibiza there is Salines, which is part of the national park in the South of the island, then there is also the precious beach of Aguas Blancas, a beautiful bay with crisp light sand, crystal blue waters all backed by pine and tamarisk woods. Perhaps better known for pleasures of a relaxing nature the islands are actually great for exploring by bike. Ibiza have a large network of cycling routes with downloadable maps available from the website. Stephen Roche (winner of the Tour de France, the Tour of Italy and the World Championship) says “Ibiza is quite fascinating! It has a great climate and great scenery and it offers unbeatable conditions for both holiday cyclists and professionals.”.

Few people would think of Ibiza as the place to learn to dive. A shorter, less expensive flight than the Red Sea or Caribbean Ibiza have highly commended English speaking instructors making getting a PADI fun, stress free and a great way of building an activity and skill into any holiday. In Ibiza Punto Dive, Anfibios and Punta Dive all offer PADI diving courses and diving packages for more experienced divers. The Ibiza coastline was actually declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 due to the 750km of rich seaweed known as the Posidonia Prairies - and this natural phenomena brings divers from all over the world! Dalt Vila, Ibiza’s UNESCO site Old Town, dominates the skyline of Ibiza Town along side with the cathedral and steep, the cobbled streets are a real treat to explore. Don’t forget to visit the hippie market at Las Dalias during the Sundays. You can find anything from homemade bracelets to amazing leather bags. The Balearics has a varied and delicious cuisine which features both meat and fish. Seafood dishes are popular with fresh sea bream, Dorada, sardines and calamari all locally caught and simply grilled to make some of the most popular and flavorful dishes. For meat lovers, locally reared pork served with prunes or apricots are popular as is slow roasted pork shoulder and belly of pork.
 And ofcourse you can not miss out on the Paella, the national Spanish dish, which originated on the mainland is also a Balearic favourite.
