All four major islands in this archipelago (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) are popular tourist destinations, in particular Ibiza. The islands' culture and cuisine are similar to those of the rest of Spain but have their own distinctive features.
The smallest of the inhabited Balearic Islands, Formentera is located to the south of the island of Ibiza. It is a very flat island with 69 km of coastline, full of beaches and cliffs of great beauty.
With a coastline of 210 km and a very irregular morphology, Ibiza is internationally renowned for the beauty of its coves and beaches, the quality of its waters and its lively night-life.
Menorca is the second largest of the Balearic Islands and the easternmost Spanish territory, being the first place where the sun rises in Spain. It was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 1993 by UNESCO.
