Ibiza – or ‘Eivissa’ to locals – is one of the four sparkling Balearic islands in the Mediterranean, off Spain’s east coast. The island is one of the most popular European destinations among Britons each and every year. But with beautiful beaches, picturesque villages and a vibrant local culture, all in addition to the world-class night clubs, there’s more to Ibiza holidays than most people think.
Ibiza’s climate is undoubtedly one of the reasons why the island has been so popular for so long. Rainfall is low and temperatures alternate between warm and sizzling for much of the year.
Where to Stay
Where you stay on your holiday to Ibiza depends on what you plan to do...
Are you a party-goer?
If you’re here for the internationally renowned nightlife, then you’ll want to base yourself near the clubs. Playa d’en Bossa is home to Space, which in 2012 was awarded Best Global Club at the International Dance Music Awards. . The most popular clubs on the whole are divided between Ibiza Town on the southern shore and San Antonio on the western coast.
A quieter Ibizan break
Ibiza also caters to non-party goers, and Santa Eulalia, on the island’s eastern coast, characterised by quaint whitewashed villas, makes the perfect choice for family holidays. Ibiza Town is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is therefore protected from development and commercialisation. This means that much of the island’s original charm and culture has been preserved. You can wander its winding streets where the Old Town’s 16th century walls are still standing. These provide the perfect backdrop to an afternoon beer overlooking the marina, which is always packed with luxury yachts.
For many, holidays to Ibiza revolve around nightlife. The island is renowned across the world for its bars and clubs, which include some of the biggest and best nightclubs in the world. Aside from Space, other dance landmarks include Amnesia, DC10 and Privilege, the largest club in the world with a capacity of 10,000 people!
But Ibiza has many attractions and activities for those not partying through till dawn. If you’re after a beach holiday, you’ll also be spoilt for choice. The island has approximately 60 sandy beaches that run around the coastline, and there are many secluded coves, where you can escape the crowds. Try the beautiful beaches at Cala Bassa and Cala d’Hort
Many of these resorts are also family-friendly, offering holidaymakers a variety of water sports and other activities. The island’s golf course can also be found at Santa Eulalia.
You can discover more of the local culture by exploring the streets of the historic towns and picturesque villages. Inland Ibiza still offers fantastic natural scenery, so is popular among photographers and artists.
