 The team at Bonamy educated us about how safari guiding works, allowing for some rather spectacular photo opportunities.
 Careful consideration of our unique requests was always a part of their recommendations.”

experts, to the best vineyards to visit in Cape Town. It allows us to engage with a wider community, all sharing our passion for travel and adventure.

Trips to Balearic Islands

No, no, this is not a dream … Welcome to the Balearic Islands! Imposing in the Mediterranean, the Gimnesias and the Pitiusas rise up as the paradise to which one always wishes to return. Because the Balearic Islands are coves as recondite as that of Deià, where your only companions will be the waves that hug the sand. They are those paradisiacal corners of Saona or Espalmador and those turquoise waters of Menorca.

We can also prepare your trip to Spain fron any part of the world

The Balearic Islands are those narrow and cobbled streets of Valldemossa guarded by the mountains that are erected in the Tramuntana. Because tourism in the Balearic Islands is the Favàritx Lighthouse and its loneliness is hit by the waves and it is those beaches that overflow with people in summer and peace and tranquility in winter.

“Did you know that Illetes beach, in Formentera, has been chosen as the best in Spain, second in Europe and sixth in the world?” Cálzate las menorquinas, take an ensaimada for the road and patéate the streets of the Balearic archipelago discovering the Cathedral of Mallorca, the old town of Alcudia and feeling the king of the world in the Cape of Formentor.

Because the Balearic Islands are those blue summers of bicycle and beach where the sun rises earlier than in any other point of Spain.

Because these islands are those blue summers of bicycle and beach where the sun rises earlier than in any other part of Spain. Do you travel to the Balearic Islands?
