Ibiza Information

Ibiza, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea is a true paradise and has a lot to offer to be one of the worlds most popular holiday destinations.  Gorgeous beaches, a sea with fifty shades of blue, green mountains, picturesque villages and all of this in about a few hours away from most European cities. Sure, there are many nice islands in the Mediterranean Sea but not like Ibiza. First Ibiza’s world-famous nightlife, fantastic clubs which are trendsetting all over the world. DJ’s and artists perform throughout the season and many choose Ibiza as their holiday destination as well. The quality and diversity of the restaurants, food from all over the world without forgetting its local kitchen. One gets a good idea of its history and culture walking around the streets and many parts are protected as world heritage sites by UNESCO. Ibiza stands for liberty and magic. For many years the island has been a haven for free thinking people and the island stars in literature, movies, TV series and songs. Still the ghost of the Flower Power wanders around the island. Many parties and markets honour the sixties and seventies and even the ADLIB fashion comes from that time.

Information

Ibiza Town

The capital of the island, we can divide the city into a few parts. Within the city wall is the oldest part and dates back to the 14th century. This part is called Dalt Villa and is protected as a world heritage site by UNESCO. Very nice to walk around and discover, there are a few museums and lots of restaurants and shops. The part bordering to Dalt Villa, the harbour and the squares Vara del Rey and Plaza del Parque is Ibiza’s commercial heart, small little streets with terraces, boutiques and chain stores. The newer part is called Eixample from Vara del Rey to Figueretas.

Santa Eulalia

Santa Eulalia is Ibiza’s third biggest town and has a very nice city centre with a long boulevard and city beach. Santa Eulalia attracts more families and has less to offer in nightlife. There are plenty restaurants and less expensive than Ibiza Town. Worthwhile a visit is Puig den Missa, a church perched upon a hill dating back to the 16th century and also Ibiza ‘s only river flows out in Santa Eulalia.

 

Villages in the surroundings

San Carlos de Peralta – around and in this village settled the hippy’s in the sixties and seventies and lots stayed. Visit the iconic Bar Anita across the church for tapas and home-made Hierbas. We can recommend Las Dalias, not the biggest hippy market but the most authentic one, full of stalls with jewellery, clothes and food. Las Dalias is open every Saturday during the season and during Christmas the organize a special market.

 

San Juan – the highest, most secluded and most northern village of Ibiza. Its architecture is different from other villages and the most unspoiled. The village has a church dating back from the 18th century and every Saturday there is a farmer’s market with local produce and food.

 

Tips:

The patron day of San Juan, its celebrations start around midnight 23 June / 24 June

San Antonio

San Antonio is Ibiza second largest town and is situated at the West Coast. Not entirely justified San Antonio enjoys a bad reputation due to presence of young English holidaymakers during the high season. Because of its position it’s a great place during winter. San Antonio has many good restaurants and a nice long boulevard. Also, the southern beaches are easy to reach by boat or by car and Ibiza Town is only 15 minutes away by car.

 

Villages in the surroundings

Santa Agnès – a very small and quiet village, nature here is breath-taking and the Santa Inés valley is full of almond trees. Close to Santa Inés in direction of San Mateo one finds the beautiful area Buscatell, worthwhile to visit due to its irrigation system dating back from the Arab times.

 

Santa Gertrudis – also known as the restaurant village is centrally situated on the island with a beautiful pedestrian square and little white washed church. The Santa Gertudis surroundings is mainly agriculture and worth a visit is “Sluiz” a big shop full of designer items.

 

Tips:

  • During the February month Almond blossoms

  • August 24th bank holiday in San Antonio with fire works show in the harbour in honour of San Barthomeu, its patron saint.

San José de sa Talaia

San José de Sa Talaia is a charming village in the South and is also the biggest municipality, stretching from Playa den Bossa all the way to San Antonio. It is a quaint village with a few narrow streets, a church and town square, restaurants and shops. Its name comes from Ibiza´s highest mountain, Sa Talaia 475 meters high. The municipality of San José houses a large number of beaches and bays like Cala Vadella, Cala Conta and Cala D’Hort.

 

Villages in the surroundings

Es Cubells – a small village situated at the South-East coast with a little whitewashed church and a stunning coastline, many of the large villas are situated in this area.

 

San Augustin – Ibiza ‘s smallest village and also one of the best preserved. Perched on top of a hill with a small centre with a church and square. For dining we can recommend Can Berri Vell, a beautiful restored farm with very good food.
