Which Balearic Island is meant for me?

29th March 2018 Destinations

Dear Turtles,

The Balearic Islands are a group of small islands off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. 300 days of sunshine every year, turquoise waters and white-sand beaches is what they have in common, but they also have very different personalities and we simply don’t want you to book your tickets to the wrong paradise !
So whether you are a nature lover, a hippie at heart, a bohemian or a fervent culture buff, our incredible users are here to help you find your match !

Inspiringly yours,

Your Turtle team

 


1. Formentera the Bohemian

Boho-Chic is your middle-name, you (really) enjoy people watching but don’t admit it, and you cycle everywhere… then Fomentera is made for you!

A night in Hostal So i Mar

@annsobib

“Best value hotel to wake up to walking straight on the sand and with an empty white sand beach. Heaven while giving your pocket money a break…”

A dinner party in Beso Beach

@pilar

“Beso beach in Formentera. Fun. Delicious. Great DJ.”

Lunch in Juan y Andrea

@Nadephe

“Go for lunch at Juan y Andrea in Formentera, definitely overpriced but delicious local food in a cool spot. When in Formentera…”

Rent a boat in Fomentera

@annsobib

“Rent a boat and navigate round the island to discover the beauties of the smallest island of the Balearic. The sea is warm and crystal clear.”


2. Mallorca the elegant

If you believe that less is more, are passionate about golf, and can’t imagine a holiday without some culture, then Mallorca is your island. Did you know it’s home to some stunning Roman and Moorish remains?

Have lunch at the Anchorage Club

@Tina

Play golf at Son Gual Mallorca

@pilar

“A dream of a golf.”

Teatro Principal De Palma

“The beautiful theatre in Palma where you can enjoy Mozart, Verdi and even Cheek by Jowl!”

Hotel Sant Francesc

@minam0r

“Enjoy a drink on this rooftop pool bar with a view of the historic centre of Palma de Mallorca. This boutique hotel with original features of the 19th century married with contemporary design is the perfect setting to enjoy a glass of wine.”


3. Minorca the natural beauty

If you’re looking for the perfect destination to come with your family, with lots of adventure and activities, then Minorca is the perfect match!

Rent a boat in Minorca

@margotrad

“Minorca is a beautiful island and the best way to explore it is by boat. Rent a boat and discover secluded beaches and creeks – you will be alone! Note that the island can get quite windy and the sea quite choppy so make sure you know how to properly drive a boat!”

A stay at Turmadèn d'es Capità Agroturismo

@ LauraVidrequin

“Adorable agroturismo, remote from everything and very peaceful!”

Have cocktails at Isabella Beach Club

4. Ibiza the hippie-clubber

You think of yourself as a modern hippie and do love some partying to let off steam… then Ibiza is your new home!

Hacienda Na Xamena

“One of the best beach restaurants on the island. In the higher price bracket.”

@JasmineFisher

“Gorgeous farm to table restaurant off the San Miguel road set amongst the vegetable gardens. They do a barbecue in the evenings.”

Pacha

@annsobib

“For a memorable night out, my favourite is the Pacha. For those who are not big fans of electro music, the Flower Power is definitely lots of fun and the decor is simply stunning.”
