Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands are a Spanish uniprovincial autonomous community, composed of the islands of the Balearic archipelago.

They are located in the Mediterranean Sea, off the eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula. Its capital is Palma.

The archipelago consists of two groups of islands and numerous islets: the Gimnesian islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Cabrera and some nearby islets such as Dragonera, Conejera or the Isla del Aire) and the Pitiusas islands.

The geography of the archipelago of the Balearic Islands includes Mallorca, Cabrera, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.

In total the territory has 4492 km² and goes from sea level to 1445 m altitude in the Puig Major of the Sierra de Tramuntana in Mallorca.

The geographic coordinates are between 40º5'48 'and 38º40'30' of latitude N and between 1º12'47 'and 4º19' of length E.

Ibiza is separated from the coast of the Valencian Community by only 75 km of sea, this same distance separates Mallorca from Ibiza.

The minimum distance separating Mallorca from Menorca is 35 km.
