The beautiful Balearics

Mallorca and Menorca have long been popular with tourists, but if you think it’s just bucket ‘n’ spade delights, think again. Mallorca’s capital, Palma de Mallorca, has a fascinating history, and the island’s varied landscape includes rugged mountains and a rural interior little-touched by tourism. Boutique hotels, delicious paella, and peaceful villages show there’s much more than the islands' beaches. The likes of Magaluf still supply cheap thrills, but in quiet corners of Menorca or Mallorca’s Tramuntana mountains, it all seems ages away.

Stay.com Editors' Note

The Parc Natural de s’Albufera (the “Al-buhayra” of the Arabs) spreads over an area of 1,688 hectares, within the villages of Muro and sa Pobla. Only 80% of the park is accessible to the public, the rest being reserved for other small-holdings. The park boasts interesting wildlife and scenic views.

The Parc Natural de s’Albufera is a Special Protection Area for Birds (ZEPA), and is one of the most important ecosystems in the Balearics and Pitiüses.
