London - Mahón - Son Bou, Menorca
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to London Heathrow or Gatwick Airport for a direct, scheduled British Airways flight to Mahón in Menorca. Upon arrival we transfer to the south coast and the resort of Son Bou, where we check in at the beachfront Sol Milanos Pingüinos (3T) for four nights. Dinner is included every evening during your stay.
Settle into your holiday with a day at leisure. Perhaps take advantage of the hotel facilities - including two spacious swimming pools - or spend your day on one of the longest beaches in Menorca, great for soaking up the sun on the stretch of lush golden sands. Behind the beach there is also a nature reserve, with many diverse bird inhabitants.
After breakfast, we depart for the island’s capital, Mahón, to board a sightseeing boat trip around the harbour, the biggest natural port in the Mediterranean. After free time to explore the city or visit the many shops, we then journey to the Xoriguer gin distillery to sample this distinctly aromatic gin, originally created during Menorca’s 18th century British rule. Our tour continues to the village of Binibeca Vell - a collection of white-washed cube houses designed by Antonio Sintes in 1972 in the style of a traditional Menorcan fishing village.
Enjoy a day at leisure today, or join an optional island tour revealing Menorca’s unspoilt beauty. This excursion stops first at Hort Sant Patrici, a cheese farm where you taste typical Menorcan cheeses, before continuing to the beautiful fishing village of Fornells where mouthwatering cuisine is served in waterfront restaurants. Head to Monte Toro, the highest point on the island at 358m; you can visit the sanctuary here before taking in the breathtaking views. The final stop will be Cala Galdana, a beautiful resort on Menorca’s south coast, considered one of the best beaches on the island.
Son Bou - Santa Ponsa, Mallorca
Following breakfast we transfer to the nearby port for a ferry to the island of Mallorca and on arrival continue to Santa Ponsa. We check in to our hotel, the H10 Casa del Mar (4T) for a five-night stay with dinner included each evening. The rest of the day is free to relax and familiarise yourself with your hotel.
The hotel is located in an attractive bay on the western coast of Mallorca and today is free to spend as you wish. Santa Ponsa itself is known for white sand beaches and a lively marina, or you can simply make use of the hotel’s facilities - take a dip in the swimming pool, or enjoy a tranquil treatment at the spa.
Inca - Port de Pollença - Formentor - Alcúdia - Santa Ponsa
Today we cross the island from south to north, on a scenic drive stopping first in the town of Inca, known as the ‘city of leather’ for its shoe and leather goods industry. We learn more about this on a visit to one of the factories, before continuing to Port de Pollença for a boat journey to Formentor (subject to sea conditions). Arguably the most beautiful beach on the island, it is set against a stunning backdrop of pine forest and mountains accompanied by fine sands and glistening turquoise blue waters. There will be free time for swimming before we re-join our coach, travelling past many olive groves, to Alcúdia and its bustling local market where you can get a taste of the local culture and shop for a range of items from leather goods to fruit and vegetables.
Take a day at leisure, or join a half-day optional excursion to Valldemossa, considered one of the prettiest villages in Mallorca. Located in a picturesque valley in the midst of the Tramuntana Mountains, it has been inspiration for many writers, artists and composers, including Chopin who spent time here in 1838, at the 14th century Carthusian Monastery. After exploring the monastery, including the different ‘cells’ in which they stayed, the pharmacy and the church, conclude at an exhibition of folklore dancing in the grand Palace of King Sancho.
Today is another free day to enjoy at your hotel, or join an optional excursion to the picturesque mountain village of Esporles and La Granja, a museum of Mallorcan traditions and history. Within the farmstead there exists a grand 17th century mansion belonging to an aristocratic family, tranquil gardens, and lush vegetation. During your visit you will sample some typical Mallorcan food and many types of local handicrafts.
Santa Ponsa - Figueretas, Ibiza
After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and travel to Palma de Mallorca Port for our ferry to Ibiza. Upon arrival we transfer to Figueretas just outside Ibiza Town and our hotel, the THB Los Molinos Class (4T). This afternoon is at leisure to enjoy your new surroundings including close-by restaurants, shops and the beautiful beachfront.
Your introduction to this attractive island, known as ‘The White Isle’, begins today as we embark on an island tour taking in some of its impressive locations. We’ll discover a collection of villages including San José situated high in the hills with views across the island; San Antonio, a vibrant area with lively bars and sunset cafes; and Santa Eulalia, a classy resort town with palm fringed promenades. These villages will be interspersed with beautiful beaches including Sa Caleta, renowned for its red cliffs and clear waters; and Las Salinas, a long expanse of soft golden sand.
Spend your final full day relaxing at leisure. Your hotel is an adult-only hotel, located right on the beachfront - close enough to Ibiza Town to visit if you wish, yet secluded enough to simply enjoy the peace, perhaps with a good book.
Day 13 Figueretas - London
We transfer to the airport for a direct, scheduled British Airways flight to London Heathrow or Gatwick Airport. On arrival you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
