Ibiza hosts some of the world famous clubs as it is infamously known as the party capital of the world, so tends to be more popular amongst the younger holiday makers who love to party until the early hours of the morning.  As well as the party life Ibiza still has plenty to offer during the day with over 50 beaches to visit, as well as the museums that show off Ibiza’s beautiful history.

Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands, where you can only get to the island by catching a ferry from Ibiza.  An unspoiled island, Formentera is known for its stunning landscape, and beaches that attract nudists from all over Europe.  The island is for holiday makers seeking a more relaxing holiday.  There’s not much tourism here which gives holiday makers the perfect opportunity to explore the island and visit all the old villages and shops.

For sun seekers the best time to visit the Balearic Islands is between June and September where the temperature reaches 30 degrees and above.  Then the cooler months are November to April where the temperature can drop to 15degrees.
