Ibiza is the third largest of the Balearic Islands, 79 kilometres from Valencia on the coast of Spain.  Famed for its clubs and its nightlife, Ibiza has a very much wider range of attractions to offer the visitor.  The island’s stunningly beautiful coastline, unique marine life and coral reefs, and old walled port won it UNESCO World Heritage status in 1999.  There are fascinating historical sites to explore, and the ideal way to get around the island is by car.  

Things to do in Ibiza

No-one can go to Ibiza without sampling its nightlife – the liveliest clubs can be found in Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni.  The island’s beaches provide wonderful opportunities for swimming and sunbathing - Cala Compte and Cala Bassa are two of the most popular.  The coastline offers endless opportunities for exploration, not least the wonderfully illuminated Can Marca caves, and watersports enthusiasts can enjoy windsurfing, sailing and snorkelling.  Not to be missed are the historical sites, from the remains of an early Phoenician settlement on the headland of Sa Caleta to the old castle fortress at D’Alt Vila.

Drive Around Ibiza

Having the independence to explore the island is ideal and in arranging car hire, Ibiza Airport offers the best options.  The airport itself is only 4 ½ miles outside Ibiza Town, and serves both Ibiza and its sister island of Formentera.  It’s visited by budget carriers Ryanair and Thomas Cook Airlines, and handles an amazing 5.6 million passengers a year.  Transformed from its early days as a military base, the facilities offered are worthy of much larger airports, and visitors can benefit from free WiFi, banks, conference and meeting rooms and tourist information on arrival.  Driving around Ibiza offers the chance to explore both golden beaches and the pine-scented interior, but take your time, as the roads are narrow and winding, and the whole island can be covered in a few hours.  There are numerous signposts to small and uncrowded beaches a bit off the tourist track, and for the experience of genuine Spanish food try a restaurant in one of the villages in the centre of the island like Santa Gertrudis de Fruta.
