WHEN TO GO

The Balearic Islands are a safe bet when it comes to summer sun. Between June and August you can expect around 11 hours of sunshine a day, and beach-friendly temperatures that nudge up to 30°C. Temperatures in Menorca tend to be a couple of degrees lower than in Majorca and Ibiza, so it’s a good place to head if you prefer things a bit cooler. Spring and autumn see milder conditions – you’re looking at average temperatures in the high teens and low 20s – so they’re ideal for sightseeing and hiking. You might see a bit of rain, but it doesn't tend to last more than a couple of hours.

Health & Safety

You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
