Added Info on the Balearic Islands:

Consisting of five islands off the Eastern Coast of Spain in the Mediterranean, the Balearic Islands (Las Islas Bleares) are perhaps better known by their separate names.

the northern group of three islands is dominated by the two largest of the archipelago, Majorca and Menorca. A third island in the northern group is the small island of Cabrera.

The southern group of two islands has Ibiza and Formentera.

The attractive climate (300 sunny days a year) and the beautiful beaches are part of what makes these islands so attractive to vacationers on holiday from colder climes like England, France, and Germany.

Because of its strategic location providing access to much of the Western Mediterranean, this island group has been held by various navies over the centuries.

Now a part of Spain, the varied cultural background adds to the charm of the towns and people as well as the delicious cuisine.

Balearic Island Sea Glass

Of course, islands that have seen commerce for thousands of years and have plenty of coves and beaches are also going to be ideal locations for finding treasures from the past - sea glass!

As seen in the photo above and all of Estelas excellent photos, the Balearic Islands should be part of any serious sea glass collector's travel agenda.

Any takers?
