Resort

Spain,
Ibiza

Introduction

Ibiza is not only the house of chill-out music and beach parties (unmissable in any case), but is also host to exclusive hotels and award-winning restaurants. The balmy climate is perfect for strolling through the city's marinas, browsing the boutiques around town or cycling the bike routes that stretch over 700km throughout the island. Whatever you do, leave enough time to catch the last sunrays from atop the rugged cliffs, preferably sipping on a glass of vino de la tierra, the local wine brew.

Essentials

  1. Ibiza has more than 50 beaches spread across 18km of coastline. Some have the remains of buildings from ancient civilisations.
  2. Olive oil is one of the island’s most important products. Varieties include the empeltre, the arbequina and the picual. The latter has the strongest flavour.
  3. Visit the archeological sites in Sant Vicent, the necropolis of Puig des Molins and the Phoenician town of Sa Caleta.
  4. Ibiza Rocks music festival packs some of the best groups in the world.
  5. Avoid July and August and explore the island in spring. The sea will still be around 19C.

Two-hour tour

  • Leisurely tour — Hire or buy a boat and take a leisurely tour of the calas at the north of the island.

    Ibiza

  • Formentera — The smaller island of Formentera is a must. Make friends with a sailor and put out to sea to the south. Have a splash in water as clear as gin.
