Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Balearic Islands

Balearic Islands, Spain, are the proud home of two of the European party capitals; Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza have been long synonymous with wild and crazy parties. Although they are much more commercial now than thirty years ago, they are still a standard for summer fiesta. Unfortunately, fame goes together with prices, and partying in Palma and Ibiza could be very expensive. The costs for going out could skyrocket, especially if you go to a famous club. Of course, there are many places to go out that are not so expensive, so some research could save you a lot of money.

Apart from being a famous party place, Palma de Mallorca, especially the Old Town, has unique architecture with many preserved cathedrals, fortresses, watch towers, museums, old houses, and castles -- so you have a lot to see as well. If you are a nature lover, you should visit Menorca -- a small island with nice beaches and amazing nature -- and less partying. The Balearic Islands have a substantial number of expats living there, mostly Brits and Germans. Because of tourism, it is usual to hear more often English than Spanish. It is a great relief when you compare it with the rest of Spain, because here most people speak at least decent English.

Getting around the islands is rather easy and not too expensive, as there are regular and not expensive ferries. Even in the low season, there are enough ferries. It is recommended that you visit several of the islands, because the Balearic Islands are very different from the rest of Spain and they have well preserved their traditions, so you can see and discover authentic Balearic customs and dresses in smaller towns and villages.

The Balearic Islands are more expensive than the rest of Spain because they are infested with tourists. There are a good number of Balearic Islands, Spain hostels in Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, and Menorca. Most of them are located near the beach and have rather good facilities. However, there are so many tourists in the high season that you need to book your Balearic Islands, Spain hostel in advance, as hostels get full quickly. Prices are high, especially in the summer, but they are nothing compared to what hotels charge. The Balearic Islands are not a cheap place, so getting a cheap Balearic Islands, Spain hostel could help your budget a lot.
