When people fancy jetting off for a few weeks in the sun, the Balearics are often top of their list of ideal locations. This group of islands off the mainland of Spain consists of four main islands including Mallorca, Ibiza, Minorca and Formentera – with Palma de Mallorca as the capital of this autonomous community. All four islands boast a fantastic Mediterranean climate, so it is no wonder that many people often look at property for sale in the Balearics. Especially villas in Ibiza. After all, each island has something different and exciting to offer.
Celebrities and wealthy Europeans alike own properties on this stunning island. While some areas are aimed at tourists and have all the facilities needed for the tourist market, other areas are relatively untouched. This means that you can expect a diverse experience during your stay on this island. One day you could be rambling in the countryside while soaking up breath-taking views, the next you may be enjoying the thrills and delights of a water park or be having some fun on the beach.
Minorca has a much more relaxed pace of life than Mallorca or Ibiza. People who stay here usually want to enjoy the climate and take things easy during their stay. That’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of things to do while you are here. If eating out is high on your list of priorities then anywhere along the coast will serve delicious, locally caught fish and seafood dishes.

Ibiza is typically associated with wild holidays and lively nightlife. However, there is so much more to this amazing island.
