Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza

Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, together referred to as the Balearic Islands, are three islands in the sun. They boast 300 days of sunshine every year and are one of the most popular vacation spots for European tourists. Each has its own personality, and El Sol has luxury villa rentals in all three. Mallorca is the size of Long Island, New York, and is the summer residence of the Spanish Royal family. It is the center for water sports, especially sailing competitions. Each year on Mallorca there is a sailing regatta where all the participant boats must be over 50 years old. Palma, the seaport capital of the island, is the center for art, shopping and dining. Palma is especially known for leather goods and locally produced pearls. Michael Douglas, American actor and producer, has built a modern theatre complex in Palma. An exciting trip option is to hop the narrow gauge railway, from Palma to the colorful seaside town of Puerto de Soller. The line was built in 1912 and still uses cars from that era. A few miles away is the charming village of Deia, adjacent to a beach on a rocky cove, the home of the English writer Robert Graves. Menorca is smaller and less populated than Mallorca. Conde Nast Traveler Magazine says to “make space at the top of your best beaches list: Mini Menorca’s coast line for quantity and quality beaches (more beaches than Mallorca and Ibiza combined.)” Conde Nast goes on to describe the beaches as unspoiled gems with soft sand and peerless, pellucid water. This an escape island, to explore at a slow pace - tranquil is a word often used. There are no high rise hotels or criss-cross road systems, only a single central highway. And indeed the years of British control on Menorca have left it with an historic appetite for, and good supply of, gin. And finally there is Ibiza: a beautiful island with sandy beaches and jagged cliffs, an interior of olive, orange and almond groves, world class restaurants and hotels…and a reputation of party central that lasts the night. That reputation has somewhat receded, and those who partied the night away in the clubs with foam-sprayed dance floors of the 80′s left sometime ago. Those foam dancers have returned with families and nannies. Ibiza is now a family-friendly island of fine seafood restaurants, and (in the words of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine), “a sophisticated, serene atmosphere that doesn’t exist elsewhere in Europe.” El Sol has numerous Ibiza villa rentals well located on this unique island.
