Special Programme for Balearic Islands Day 2024

Balearic Islands Day is the official holiday in our autonomous community, held each year on 1st March. Our big day is approaching fast, and we’ve prepared a special programme of activities to commemorate this special date, which is celebrated throughout the islands.

Between 29th February and 3rd March,  our pride in the Balearic Islands will be more evident than ever. During this period, we will be holding a series of special activities designed to share with our visitors the immense natural wealth of the islands and their Mediterranean Sea.
