Our holiday in Spain

Are you looking for a little piece of paradise? Somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, to relax in lush environments with but the sweet symphony of the sea to ease your mind into a soothed state of relaxation? Or maybe an opportunity to wake up to a picture perfect scene of glorious beauty displayed by the sun, soft sands and glimmering sea? Have breakfast with the best view you could possibly want? Does the idea of a Pina Colada by the pool with soft music playing in the background interest you?

Are you looking for adventure, thrill and none stop partying? Days of water sports, such as jet skiing, speed boat tours and surfing? Does the prospect of boat parties tickle your fancy?

If ‘yes’ is the answer to some of these or maybe even all of these questions, then you need to take a trip to the Balearic Islands, a trio of islands off the coast of Spain that all offer very unique experiences, from tranquility and relaxation to nonestop partying. There is something for everyone on each of the islands, so you most certainly won’t be disappointed. Book your holiday with directline-holidays today.


Menorca is the uppermost island of the three, it may not have the same repuation as Ibiza for example but it holds up just as strong as a place to visit and enjoy yourself, consisting of beautiful tranquil scenery, clear gorgeous waters and pretty little town houses with friendly locals. If its simply an escape you need, Menorca is a perfect place to stay. Take a stroll around Maó Harbour or hike to the top of Monte Toro or join in the fiestas. Not everything involves walking however; there is of course horse riding, Kayaking and watching the sunset while sipping something cool in Cova d’en Xoroi at Cala’n Porter.

Majorca is the middle and biggest island of the three, it is reknowned for its water sports and great attractions so you’ll never be left without interesting things to do while you’re there. Watersports are aplenty here, from jet skiing to kayaking and if that isn’t your flavour, take a trip north to Pollensa where you’ll find a pleasent little town with more than enough restaurants to suit your desires, or hike in the Tramuntana mountains, there is also the Puerto de Pollensa beaches for strolling.


Ibiza has something to suit all, it may be reknown for its partying and wild nights, but there are other places you can visit on the island to get away from all that if it isn’t to your tastes, from pretty little towns to beaches along the coastlines. If partying is your thing there are more than enough clubs and bars to choose from in Ibiza, clubs and bars are always lively and it is not uncommon for celebrities to appear, there are live performances and raves for even the hardest partiers. When partyheads are not grooving it down, there are a variety of activities to parttake in, from watersports to trekking.
