Spain - Balearics,
If the Balearic archipelago is one of Europe's leading tourist destinations, it is largely due to its climate. From June to October, the temperature is close to 30°C, and rain is very rare in summer. The cooling possibilities will therefore be a small swim (the sea temperature averages 25 °C in summer), or a visit to the interior, where the air is cooler (the Serra de Tramuntana rises to over 1 400 m). In winter, the thermometer rarely drops below 0°C.
The diversity of the landscapes :
These islands would be very sad if we only loved them for their climate! Plains, fine sandy beaches, coasts cut into tiny coves, pine and garrigue forests, remote villages and urban buzzing... The Balearics are all part of it. Nature remains varied and omnipresent despite the few concrete epidemics in the tourism industry. So of course, from these islands, we come back with pictures of postcards: bikinis and turquoise sea lined with golden sand. But the photos also show the steep slopes of the mountain, the Arabic ramparts, the mills with white wings and the Victorian façades. In other words, in the Balearic Islands, lovers of change of scenery can drink well beyond their thirst.
