If you are a foodie, the main points of interest about Baleares are its Mahón Cheese, Sobrasada from Mallorca and its DO Pla i Llevant wines.
Named after the port, Mahon cheese is synonymous with the island and is intense, salty and strong tasting.
While the humid and salty Mediterranean air conditions on the islands are terrible for curing hams, they provide the ideal environment for curing what has become their speciality; Sobrasada from Mallorca. Although its exterior resembles a sausage, the texture inside is more like a soft pâté. When eaten on its own, it is usually spread on toast, rather than cut into slices as you would a chorizo. It is also used to flavour other dishes, and it is a popular topping for cocas, the typical flatbreads of the islands.
The D.O. Pla i Llevant wines are unique to the low lying Spanish plains and due to the intense weather conditions experienced on the island, the grapes produce exceptional flavours.
