There’s an old story that Mallorca — one of the Balearic Islands— was once home to an Arab king and his Scandinavian queen. Knowing that the queen missed the snow of her homeland, the king planted millions of almond trees to simulate snow and make the island as beautiful as possible for her. Did the queen go nuts for these trees? We can’t say. But we do know that, between almond trees, olive groves, vividly coloured waters and shining white sands, the fairytale-like atmosphere of the Balearic Islands is definitely fit for a queen. Or a king. Or someone like you!

Many of the Balearic highlights are accessible only by boat!
Ibiza is ten times larger than New York’s Manhattan Island, so it has ample room for the large number of tourists who flock to its shores because of its active nightlife. The island is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site notable for its marine and coastal ecosystems and important examples of Renaissance-era military architecture.
This beautiful island has been inhabited since the 8th century BC, and its capital, Palma, was once a Roman camp. The mountain range crossing the island — the Serra de Tramuntana — is known for its great diversity of plant and animal life and for its spectacular terracing. The town of Andraitx offers a wide variety of outdoor activities.
The beaches on Menorca, with their white sand and crystal-clear waters, are lovely and are just the place to spend a day relaxing. If you fancy a stroll, keep an eye out for the over 900 species of flowering plants on the island. Menorca is also the perfect place to bird-watch.
