Ibiza, Menorca, Lanzarote… Known by all or small wild paradises just waiting to be discovered, a tour of the most beautiful Spanish islands that make us dream while we wait for summer. Facing the glittering Mediterranean Sea or facing the waves of the Atlantic, the Spanish islands are small wild paradises. The opportunity to discover the most beautiful specimens of the genre, to be visited as soon as we can travel again.
More discreet than its neighbours Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca silently establishes itself as one of Spain’s summer hot spots. More unspoilt, less touristy, this little Bohemian paradise boasts a constellation of wild coves and lush green countryside filled with olive and cypress trees.
Colonised massively by the hippies in the 70s, a favourite spot for inveterate clubbers, electro fanatics since the 2000s, Ibiza cultivates its multiple facets. From north to south, the atmosphere changes, whether you want to party with your feet in the sand or bubble quietly in the Mediterranean garden of a restored sheepfold.
Often assimilated a little too quickly as a tourist destination, Mallorca is nevertheless one of the most unspoilt islands in the Mediterranean. A mixture of limestone cliffs, countryside where almond, olive and grape trees grow, coves with translucent water… It adapts to everyone’s desires.
Just a short distance from Ibiza, Formentera is the smallest island in the Balearic Islands. Thanks to a clever filtering system, the beaches are immaculate. With its pretty little squares and charming whitewashed houses, it is the ideal spot for lovers of nature and peace and quiet.
You could almost think you’re on Mars in Lanzarote, the beautiful volcanic island of the Canary Islands. Little-known to travellers, it has an incredible diversity of landscapes, from its small villages perched high up on the seafront, lined with palm trees, to its fabulous black sand beaches and its green national park full of volcanoes.
Massively populated by fishermen, Ons seduces as much by its wild beaches as by its national park landscapes where rare plants abound. On the Atlantic coast, this island of Galicia attracts travellers keen on hiking and Spanish gastronomy (the local dish is grilled octopus).
A pristine marine ecosystem, Cabrera is this nature reserve just a short distance from Mallorca. It is particularly popular for observing its superb marine fauna: turtles, dolphins, colourful fish… But also to explore its beaches, cliffs and small villages dating back to the 14th century.
Mainly oriented towards agriculture, La Gomera is one of those wild islands little known to tourist circuits. Full of footpaths and wide beaches, they speak Silbo, an ancient Spanish dialect.
