How to spend your summer on the best beaches in the Balearic Islands

Balearic Islands

In the Balearic Islands, you’ll find a paradise of white sands and turquoise waters in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. A perfect place to relax where the only thing you’ll need to worry about is having a good time. We’re now going to tell you about some of the best beaches in the islands so that you can start planning your trip.

  • Caló des Moro, Mallorca

    Caló des Moro, Mallorca

    Just 6 kilometres away from Santanyí you’ll find Mallorca’s star beach, and one of the best known for its beauty. After a few minutes’ walk down the path you’ll get your reward: fine white sand and crystal-clear waters are waiting for you in this peaceful corner of the island.

  • Es Trenc beach, Mallorca

    Es Trenc beach, Mallorca

    A pristine three-kilometre stretch of fine white sand surrounded by pine trees. The sea is always calm here so it’s perfect for swimming and enjoying with the whole family, and the waters are crystal clear.

  • Cavalleria Beach, Menorca

    Cavalleria Beach, Menorca

    This is a beach in the north of the island, and it's one of the most peaceful. Here you'll find more than half a kilometre of red sand at the heart of nature, a perfect place for laying down your towel wherever you fancy and taking a refreshing dip. Plus, this beach is an extensive area of dunes to make for an unforgettable landscape. 

  • Cala Macarella, Minorca

    Cala Macarella, Minorca

    This is without a doubt one of the most famous coves in Menorca. A real paradise hidden among the rocks, perfect for enjoying sun and sea. And if it looks a bit crowded when you go, you can always walk on for a bit until you get to the smaller sister beach, Cala Macarelleta, which is just as lovely but not quite so big.

  • Caló d’Es Mort, Formentera

    Caló d’Es Mort, Formentera

    This cove is the stuff that dreams are made of, above all in low season when with a bit of luck you can take a more or less solitary swim. You'll find this beautiful inlet tucked away in the south of Formentera on what's known as the Costa de Migjorn. What's more, if you stay until late you're in for a treat, as when the sun sinks slowly into the sea out on the far horizon the water is dusted with gold - a picture postcard view.

  • Ses Illetes beach, Formentera

    Ses Illetes beach, Formentera

    Located at the northernmost point of the island, this beach was chosen as the best in Europe, for its white sand and the turquoise waters that are some of the best in the world, where the posidonia (a kind of seagrass) grows on the seabed. A magical place on Formentera, and one that’s not to be missed.

  • Cala d’Hort, Ibiza

    Cala d’Hort, Ibiza

    A small cove with big views, despite its reduced size this is one of the best beaches on Ibiza, as the surroundings are spectacular, not only because it’s located in a nature reserve but also because of the stunning views of the little islands of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell. All of which makes it one of those beaches you just have to visit.

  • Aigües Blanques beach, Ibiza

    Aigües Blanques beach, Ibiza

    After walking down the rather steep path, you'll sink your toes into the golden sand of this lovely beach with its calm waters and towering cliffs. If you like scuba-diving it’s a paradise on earth, but you'll love it if all you want to do is relax as well because the clay from the cliffs is often used to cleanse and purify the skin, and for massages. 

These are just some of the lovely beaches that you'll find on any of the Balearic Islands. So what are you waiting for? Discover them for yourself!
