Balearic Island

This group of Spanish islands, off the coast of the Iberian Peninsula, are becoming an increasingly popular sailing destination because they boast clear waters, rocky landscapes, sandy beach fronts and hospitable harbours.

Each island has a different personality. Mallorca has a mountainous inland area that is great for hiking juxtaposed with a relaxed seaside. Ibiza is known throughout Europe for its active nightlife, where Menorca, on the other hand, is covered with peaceful beaches and isolated coves. Formentera is an unspoilt oasis with long stretches of white-sand beaches and Cabrera, once used as a prison, is now a national park home to more than 450 species of plants and 150 species of birds.
