If the first of March falls on a Sunday or Tuesday, the adjacent Monday is taken off too. If it falls on a Thursday, the following Friday is normally an off-day. This usually guarantees a long weekend for Balearic Islands Regional Holiday.

The four largest islands included in the Balearic Islands are Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. But there are a number of smaller isles as well. The region is sunny and warm and has many good beaches and amazing historical sites to visit. Its history is unique, involving the Greeks, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, several Islamic powers, Aragon, and finally modern Spain.

On Balearic Islands Regional Holiday, the statute granting the islands autonomy within Spain is read publicly. There are community meals and family feasts. There are musical concerts, sports matches, kids’ events, art and photography exhibits, and more. Many tourists come this time of year too, and the beaches are likely to be packed.
