These 4 islands have more than 360 sandy white beaches all together. There are also smaller islands or islets, such as Cabrera, which are worth the stop. Majorca, Minorca and Cabrera form the Gymnesian Islands. Ibiza and Formentera are commonly called the Pityusas or more informally the Pine Islands (maybe an ancient reference to the pine trees). Other than its beaches, the stunning caves are a must see. The most popular ones are the Caves of Drach on Majorca with its impressive stalagmites and stalactites and an underground lake. Ibiza is well known for its animated night life. 13 wine producers live on the Archipelago and wine is produced on these islands since ancient roman time. The National Park of the Cabrera Archipelago is made up of 19 small islands and islets at around 10 kilometres from the south of Majorca. The Park is host to various species of sea birds and its waters teeming with dolphins, whales and other marine animals.
