8 Hidden Gems in the Balearic Islands
Whilst the Balearic Islands are certainly hotspots for holiday goers, there are still plenty of hidden treasures off the beaten track to be enjoyed. Amongst myriad secret beaches, tempting restaurants and bustling markets, here are some of our favourite gems in the Balearic...
1. Es Calo des Moro, Mallorca
Hidden by trees and rocks, this gorgeous little cove offers beautiful turquoise waters away from the busiest beaches on the island.
2. Cotton Beach Club, Ibiza
This breezy spot exemplifies the cool, relaxed nature of the island, with a beach-side dining area and a grand terrace.
3. Sa Dragonera Nature Reserve, Mallorca
Nestled just off the island, this reserve is a great day trip full of fantastic wildlife and brilliant scenery.
4. Las Dalias Hippy Market, Ibiza
Found in San Carlos, this legendary market is open every Saturday, offering live music, delicious food and unique souvenirs.
5. Cova d'en Xoro, Menorca
Whether you go for the delicious food, colourful cocktails, captivating views or the nightlife, Cova d'en Xoro is a social hub truly not to be missed.
6. Cala Salada beach, Ibiza
A favourite among locals, Cala Salada offers beautifully clear waters and soft white sand, surrounded by lush pine trees.
7. Eivissa Old Town, Ibiza
Whilst it's certainly not 'hidden', Eivissa is a must see when visiting Ibiza. With glistening local souvenir shops, high-end fashion stores and narrow winding streets, travel through can be quite the adventure!
8. Playa Es Caragol, Mallorca
Playa Es Caragol is also referred to as Platja des Caragol and it's the epitome of a hidden treasure. It's just 7km away from the sleepy village of Ses Salines, in Mallorca and there's no restaurants or watersports nearby. The sea is an emerald blue and the soft sand is a brilliant shade of white, as if it has been plucked from a post card. The very definition of a secluded paradise.
