Introduction to Ibiza
Spot the UNESCO heritage site known as Dalt Vila as you fly into the White Isle and discover the rich cultural heritage that lies behind this fascinating island
It’s hard to choose one of Ibiza’s 56 officially recognised beaches to highlight but Salines in the national park offers everything; stylish beachside restaurants, crystal clear water, unbelievable people watching, and if you keep walking far enough perhaps your own spot of deserted beach!
Ibiza’s best kept secret; sophisticated hotels, olive, almond and citrus groves, small, rocky coves and tiny villages such as Sant Joan to explore.
The village of Santa Gertrudis in the centre of the island is well worth a visit. Artisan shops selling traditional Ibizencan and hippy fashion, a selection of bars and a whitewashed church that dominates the village. After sightseeing in Dalt Vila and taking in the Cathedral and the Old City walls it’s also worth visiting the new town.Shopaholics can seek out Spanish labels such as Zara and the traditional Ibiza ‘ad lib’ fashion – recognisable by its white, floaty dresses, while gastro fans will love the many restaurants and cafés, perfect to sip strong coffee whilst watching the world go by. Hotels in Ibiza cater for families, couples and budget travellers, from all-inclusive resorts to cosy B&Bs. Pacha is still Ibiza’s most famous club, it’s a stylish crowd that come to party here and tickets can be sold out for well in advance for sought after nights so check the website in advance.
Flights to Ibiza are increasing all the time with services now running through the Winter making a short luxury spa or activity break possible.
Ibiza airport is located just 7km away from Ibiza Town in the south of the island.
