Spain has several islands. The Canary Islands are a goup of volcanic islands off of Africa in the Atlantic that pertain to Spain and then there are the Balearic Islands, which are off the southeastern coast of Spain in the Mediterranean. While both the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands are popular with European vacationers, few from North America venture over to Spain’s island gems.
The Balearic Islands are gorgeous. There are four of them, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. I have visited them all, and like the smaller of the bunch, Menorca and Formentera – though, let’s face it, they are all nice little slices of Mediterranean paradise.
If you are feeling adventurous, grab your tent, rent a car or scooter on Menorca, and camp on the island (probably only a good idea in the spring and summer….). At Camping On Bou pitching a tent will only set you back about 8 Euros. If you don’t want to sleep on the ground, then opts for a bungalow, which goes for 75 Euros in high season.
Great for families, Camp On Bou has a pool, plus a soccer pitch, basketball court and volleyball net. Near the sea, you will want to spend your days exploring the many fabulous coves along Menorca’s shorelines.
Camping is not for everyone, but it is one of the best ways to save money on accommodations in Spain. Remember, camping in Spain is different – for example, On Bou has a restaurant on site and shows outdoor movies….
