Balearics

Balearics

The main islands of the autonomous community are Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. Ibiza is the nearest to the mainland, 100 kilometres off the Costa Blanca coast. Its just 45 kilometres long and 15 kilometres wide.To the north west of Ibiza lies Mallorca, the largest of the Balearics and one of Europes top holiday destinations attracting some six million visitors a year. The island is about 100 kilometres from east to west and 75 kilometres from north to south. Menorca is the easternmost of the Balearic Islands - its also the most lush, tranquil and unspoilt of the three main islands.Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands , is located just off the coast of Ibiza and boasts a length of only 12 miles from tip to tip. It is often referred to as the ‘last paradise of the Mediterranean ’ due to its lack of urban development and limit on the number of resorts that are allowed to be built.
There is a large English-speaking community on the island of Mallorca so compared to the other 3 islands, Mallorca is the most advanced with regards to child-related activities & child-friendly locations.
