About Balearic Islands
The Balearic Islands are a Spanich archipelago in the western Mediterranean Sea. The four largest islands are Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The landscape of these islands is characterized by woodlands, almond trees, fertile plains and often dramatic coastlines with sandy coves separated by craggy cliffs. Majorca is the largest of the islands. The best dive site in Majorca is El Toro Marine Reserve which is full of marine life and good for divers of all levels of experience. In springtime the site is a home to myriads of octopuses, as well as cardinal fish and bream. There is also a cave located at 5m depth where shrimp and rockfish can be found. Menorca is the second largest of the islands. Most diving on Menorca is from the boats. The island also offers wrecks populated with a wide range of sea life including barracudas, groupers, moray eels, rays and the occasional dolphin. Ibiza is the smallest of the Balearic Islands. One of the most popular dive sites on Ibiza is Es Payaret "The Haystack". This tiny little cone shaped rock about 500m/1640ft north of Torre Rovira is one of the most famous places around Ibiza. Myriads of damsel fish, sergeant majors, moray eels, three different species of groupers and huge shoals of barracudas can be seen there. Formentera is a small island with no airport. There are no train lines or highways connecting the island with neighboring Ibiza, so the only way to reach the island is to take a ferry from Ibiza. Its main charm is the beautiful nature and prestine beaches with white sand and transparent waters.
