Mallorca, the chicest island
There are few destinations like this one that is ideal for all types of travelers since it offers everyone who visits it different entertainment, leisure and cultural options. Mallorca is one of the most touristic places in Spain to spend some unforgettable days; its white sands, its coves and its elegant inland towns have attracted the attention of the rich and famous, which has given the island that chic reputation.
Its must-sees? A walk through Palma de Mallorca, especially through the Yacht Club, the most eye-catching part of the city. From the bay, you will get one of the most beautiful views of the island, made up of the Royal Palace of La Almudaina together with the Cathedral.
We can’t forget about the Serra de Tramuntana, declared a World Heritage Site, where spectacular landscapes await you that you can discover while hiking and also very beautiful villages full of history.

And what about Pollença and charming Soller, which is the path to Sa Calobra? It is certainly a magical place where the sea, the cliffs and the forest meet to create a unique landscape.
Ibiza, a white island
The white island is one of the most well-known beach destinations for its parties and nightlife. But visiting it goes far beyond that since it has many attractions that are worth discovering. You can start by taking a walk through the old city, also known as Dalt Vila, an area with steep streets lined with mansions and houses that are bunched together, surrounded by walls. Afterwards, a stroll through the port to look at the yachts is a must and a visit to the nearby La Marina neighborhood with its streets full of restaurants, bars and shops.
This maravillosa island is a true natural paradise with great beaches and coves hidden among cliffs where you can enjoy a nice swim or some water sports. We recommend Cala Vadella because of its turquoise waters, perfect for discovering its seabed; Cala Conta for delighting us with the most beautiful and colorful sunsets in Ibiza; Cala Salada because of the natural environment that surrounds it; and Cala de Sant Vicent in front of the islet of Tagomago.
You can’t miss a visit to one of its charming villages either with its fortified rural churches such as Sant Carles de Peralta, famous for its hippy street market Las Dalias and the Can Marça Cave, with its lake of wishes, whose waters are colored with fluorescein creating a surprising and magical effect under artificial lighting.
