On Air Now
Heart Breakfast with Joel & Lorna 6am - 10am
This summer, how would you like to be heading off for some sun, sand and siestas, straight from Liverpool? Well you could be, as you can now head to the Balearics with Thomson's direct flights straight from Liverpool.
The Balearics are a holiday hit, year after year - and it’s easy to see why. Cue sandy beaches, family-friendly resorts and world-class nightlife. Plus with direct flights from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, you could be there unwinding with a chilled glass of sangria in less than three hours.
If you’ve never visited the islands before, you're in for a treat, as this collection of gorgeous locations has something for everyone. There's Majorca, the biggest of the islands, and it's perfect if you love your beaches as there's a fair few to choose from, including the gorgeous Ca’n Picafort’s 13 kilometre long stretch and Cala d’Or’s secluded coves.
Then there’s Ibiza's party scene which comes alive when the sun goes down. But it's not all about the dancing, as there's great daytime activities too with hidden caves and walking trails, delicious food and even water sports to enjoy.
If you're looking for an island with a slower rhythm then Menorca will hit the spot. There's quiet beaches like Son Bou and Cala’n Forcat, plus prehistoric relics to explore.
But if you want to really drop off the radar, head over to Formentera. Its 20-kilometre coastline is dotted with secluded stretches of white sand. Some, like Playa Mitjorn, have been compared to the Caribbean.
If all that talk of beaches, blue skies and sunshine has got you crying out for a holiday, how would you like to be winning £500 to get your holiday fund started PLUS £500 to spend when you're actually on holiday?
