The Balearic Islands consist of four main larger islands – Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. The two official languages of the region are Spanish and Catalan. After visiting the Balearic Islands, I can tell you that there are two things that these islands do best – beaches and tanning.

The beaches are incredible – the bluest blue you will ever see, blending into white soft sand beaches speckled with chiringuitos (beach bars).  This is the life my friends.  Lay out a little, go to a chiringuito, have a tinto de verano, a gazpacho, or maybe even some paella, and then resume your food coma back on the beach.
