The Balearic Islands are on the government's amber list for foreign travel, as of Monday, July 19.
Rules depend on whether or not you have been fully vaccinated in the UK.
If so, then the same rules apply as if it is a green list country in that you must take a Covid test before travelling and book a second one to be taken upon arrival in England, but you do not need to quarantine.
If you are not fully vaccinated, or if you are but you have been through France, then you must quarantine for 10 days as well as taking the Covid tests.
