According to the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards, Mallorca has been recognized as the sixth best island in the world, the second best in Europe and the first in Spain. Places such as the Cuevas del Drach, Sóller, Sa Calobra and the capital, Palma, have all pitched in to get the island of Mallorca so high up on this demanding list. The awards also list Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera among the ten best Islands in Spain. Ibiza, recognized as the sixth best island in Spain, features over 160 kilometers of coast and around 50 beaches, aside from the fact that the historic city of Ibiza is on the Unesco World Heritage List.
The other Spanish Islands included in these awards are Tenerife (it ranks 5th in Europe and 2nd in Spain), Gran Canaria (7th in Europe and 3rd in Spain), Fuerteventura (4th in Spain), Lanzarote (5th in Spain), La Palma (9th in Spain) and El Hierro (10th in Spain). Tenerife, the second best island in Spain, stands out for its tourist highlights such as the Teide Volcano National Park, Siam Park (a waterpark), Barranco de Masca (a gorge or ravine) and the Anaga Mountains, among others.
The worldwide list is topped by Maui, one of the Hawaiian Islands; in second place comes the Greek island of Santorini; Jamaica, in the Caribbean, ranks third; Turk and Caicos are in fourth; and the fifth best island in the world is Bali, in Indonesia.
