Overview

In this guide, a resident of Spain delves into every part of the Balearic Islands. He tells of the history and culture, and provides innumerable useful traveling tips. Everything is explored - the cities, the parks, the islands, the mountains, the foods. There is an extensive introduction to the whole of Spain, the history and culture, the foods and wines, the arts & architecture. Then all the practical details are covered. Next, we zero in on Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera - the Balearic Islands. Ibiza has been called one great open-air disco, the ultimate party place. Mallorca can be stunning with the bloom of almond trees and red poppies, its high coastal cliffs and mountainsides thick with forests of holm oak and pine (the last refuge of Europe's largest bird, the black vulture) receives moderate rainfall, the southern coast is flat, not to mention its many beaches. Menorca offers countless undisturbed beach coves and casual coastal villages that reflect its heritage, of Spanish and British occupation in whitewashed walls and colonial facades.
