Spanish regions 2
Today we’ll be continuing our look into the various Spanish regions and we’ll start with none other than the Balearic Islands.
The Balearic Islands
This archipelago offers a wonderful climate with about three hundred sunny days per year. The beaches are wonderful, the inhabitants are very welcoming and the rich culture on offer make the Balearic Islands one of the most popular holiday destination in Spain. Each island of the bunch has a very personal and strong personality, every one of them offering much more than just sand and sea and partying. The islands that make up the archipelago are as follows: Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera and Cabrera, we’re sure that you’ve heard of at least a couple of them.
The Canary Islands
Also known as the Happy Islands, the Canary Islands benefit from a very constant temperature all throughout the year, as well as splendid beaches made of fine sand and cold and hardened lava. It’s interesting to note that each island has radically different landscapes from one another, and there are seven big islands to choose from: Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma, Gomera and Hierro. There are also a bunch of smaller islands, which you may be willing to visit on day trips and such.
We’re stepping away from the two island groups of Spain to focus on an area that features a very varied landscape as well as climate, from mountain ranges where bears and wolves roam, with rivers full of salmon and trout. Thanks to several moving waters, the place has beautiful bays, green valleys, hills and quaint fishing villages.
