The Balearic Islands are a traveling sensation for many, and not purely because the climate is so dreamy all year-round. Islands such as Ibiza are renowned for their world famous clubs and visited by millions of party-goers around the seasonal clock, whereas islands such as Menorca and Formentera radiate a more bohemian and chill vibe, enabling jet-setters to unwind in a coastal paradise right on Europe’s doorstep.
