The Balearic Islands include Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza, and Formentera, plus numerous isles like the ones that form the La Cabrera Archipelago, declared a Marine-Land National Park.
Balearics are an Autonomous Community with its own government with a combination of elegant summer resorts, the tranquility of its caves and beaches, its transparent waters, its diversity and balmy climate hosting a character distinct from the rest of Spain and from each other. Ibiza is wholly unique; the island is lively and tolerant with an intense, outrageous street life and a floating summer population. Formentera, small and a little wild, is very close to Ibiza, though it struggles to present its own alternative image of reclusive artists and national tourists. Majorca, the largest and best-known Balearic stands out for its beaches and creeks together with a variety of landscapes including the craggy mountain range of Tramuntana, the natural parks, fisher’s towns and the olive and almond tree fields looking beautiful. And last, to the east, there's Minorca, a calm and relax island with two main towns, the capital Maó (Mahón), and the highly charming, pocket-sized port of Ciutadella.
