It hasn´t even started to snow yet, and still, today we would like to get you in the mood for your summer holidays 2018.
When thinking of Mallorca and Sardinia, you think of summer, sun, the beach and the ocean. The Mediterranean islands, which can be flown to nonstop from Salzburg, are two of the top holiday destinations for passengers from Salzburg and Bavaria.
Compared to Sardinia, Mallorca is a fairly small island in the western Mediterranean with an area of nearly 3.600 km². Politically it is considered to be an autonomous community within Spain. The six landscape zones – Serra de Tramuntana, Raiguer, Pia de Mallorca, Lievant, Migjorn and Palma – offer suitable leisure time activities to every taste. Whether it is swimming, playing golf, biking, hiking, diving, partying, shopping or simply relaxing, Mallorca will offer the ideal opportunities for every guest. You are interested in culture? Apart from a diversity of museums, monasteries, monuments or historical buildings, Mallorca also offers opera, jazz, ballet, theatre and musical festivals. What makes the island really special in addition and a year-round destination, are its winters, being very mild and very short.
Sardinia – Olbia airport is about 3 kilometres from the city centre – is the second largest island in the Mediterranean and belongs to Italy, although it is considered an autonomous region. The mild climate attracts more than 2.5 million guests every year who enjoy the Sardinian cuisine as well as sports activities such as surfing, kiting, diving, swimming, hiking or biking. In the North you will find a diverse landscape with dreamy bays, cork oak stands and unusual rock formations. The vibrant capital Cagliari, which is the heart of the South, is located on a prominent rock plateau, close to the Golfo degli Angeli, where the African continent is closer than Italy.
Corsica is a territorial community with a special status belonging to France and rises from the sea as an impressive mountainous landscape, which is why the island is also called “mountain in the sea”. The typical Mediterranean weather conditions are an invitation to sunbathe, waterski, dive, kayak, hike and climb mountains. Most beaches along the island are generally accessible to the public and – being widely untouched by mass tourism – Corsica is regarded as an insider tip for holidays to the Mediterranean.
