Where Are Spain's Mediterranean Islands?
The Mediterranean islands of Spain, collectively called the Balearic Islands are, like Iberia itself, quite diverse. They are located to the east of Valencia between Spain and Italy, the four chief Balearic islands maintain a character distinct from the rest of Spain and from each other.
Why You Should Visit Mallorca
The largest of the Balearic islands, Mallorca (Majorca in the UK) offers a bit of everything including dramatic coastlines, historic and urban charms of the capital city of Palma, a lush countryside with vineyards, beautiful orange and olive tree terraced hills, medieval villages, and trails that arrive at the sea.
Since our tour specialists know Mallorca so well we can provide you with luxury and VIP experiences on the island not readily available to others. Activities such as sailing to hidden coves to enjoy a picnic or scuba diving from your chartered private yacht with your own skipper and crew can readily be arranged by our team.
Then there is Mallorca´s quite beautiful mountains near the coast, the Sierra de Tramuntana. This is now listed as a World Heritage Site in part due to the amazing fruit-producing terraced gardens that have been in place for centuries. There are amazing hiking trails also. Deia is one of the finest towns of Mallorca and offers amazing views and ambiance in a compact area. Of course, there are Med beaches, nautical sports, and coves.
Exploring Coves, Snorkeling, & San Antonio in Ibiza
Ibiza is often associated with hedonistic characters and wealthy bohemians. But to their credit, the locals remain determinedly blasé about the try-harder-fashionistas or celebrities who may crash upon their shores. Our tour experiences of the island also shun this side of things and instead revel in the historic old town and the sights and sounds of San Antonio on the Northcentral coast.
The first ‘must-see’ is the UNESCO-listed Dalt Vila, an exotic souk-like walled historic town. If you are interested in exploring beautiful coves then Ibiza has some of the most stunning to be found not only in the Balearics but in all the Mediterranean islands. Cala Bassa, Cala Conta, and Cala Salada are some of the island’s most beautiful examples, just a few kilometers from San Antonio.
San Antonio itself has an attractive marina that is perfect for a stroll, browsing the nearby shops and restaurants, or even doing water sports such as stand-up paddle surfing or scuba diving.
San Antonio is also enjoying a budding reputation as a wine region and a private tasting session on the island while the sun sets is the perfect way to round off your Ibiza tour. We would recommend Bodega Can Rich vineyard and winery.
Best of Menorca & Formentera Balearic Islands
The 2nd largest Balearic island, Menorca is the least developed of the Balearics. So it’s mostly a rural island with fields and rolling hills filling out the interior. But the charming old town of Ciutadella offers amazing old mansions and lanes for a historic-minded walk.
So yes, Menorca is much more than beaches and nature, there are prehistoric monuments that show evidence of a sophisticated culture. Mysterious talayots rock mounds are often thought to have been watchtowers but this is not yet resolved.
Then there are the 4 meter-high megalithic taulas, huge stones topped with another to form a T. These are unique to Menorca and again another mystery as to the origin. These huge stones have no clear function (to 21st-century eyes at least). These Menocar megalithic stones are found alongside talayots in many cases.
Meet the Founder of Magical Spain
Hola! I’m Dan O’Beirne C.E.O of Magical Spain, and an American family man who settled here over 20 years ago.
At the heart of Magical Spain lies my two passions in life, travel, and family. After working in the Health and Wellness sector back home in the U.S, my desire to travel led me to Spain where I met my beautiful wife-to-be, and where we now live with our young son. As our relationship blossomed, so did my love for the country, cultures, and people here. It was only natural then that Nuria and I should work together to create Magical Spain as a platform to share this passion and insight into Spain with our American clients.
