Spain is the place to be for millions of Brits, Germans, and even those further afield. Ibiza is essentially a concentrated down version of everything great about Spain: Stunning coastline and beaches, villas as shown on Eivillas that are charming and spacious, as well as incredible cuisine and beautiful people.
Although it’s densely packed with things to do, here are a few things to consider seeing when jetting off to Ibiza.
To kick off, we need to talk about beaches. This is where most people spend most of their time, because well, how could you resist? Whilst there are a wide range of different beaches to consider, Playa d’en Bossa is perhaps the largest and most famous one. It can be a bit of a party crowd on summer evenings, but equally, in some parts it’s a relaxing experience with the faint sound of music in the background.
Something many aren’t aware of is the incredible hippy market in Ibiza. The Punta Arabi market attracts a large hippy crowd, with hundreds upon hundreds of craftsmen working away and selling their handmade goods. Wallets, bracelets, and many souvenirs can be found here.
But equally, this is a great place to eat and relax. There are craft beer stalls, incredible paella, and even some live music being played in and around. It’s a joyous and creative place to spend your afternoon.
There are a few caves in Ibiza, so we thought we would pick the one that has a secondary, or in fact, primary, activity to it. The aquarium Cap Blanc is underground in a cave, giving it an intensely intimate experience with the marine life that you come across. There’s a charming wooden walkway that spans around the lake, and inside the waters you will find a range of wildlife, from rescued sea turtles to stingrays and starfish.
To get a heavy dose of culture in your visit to Ibiza, they host a UNESCO site in the oldest part of Ibiza town. The old town had to be protected and fortified, and this is exactly what the UNESCO site is. There’s Renaissance military architecture and a tour of the seven bastions, each with a story to tell.
Seeing as you’re already there, head up the hill towards the Castle of Ibiza for a truly stunning panoramic view of the waters. The castle is in stunning condition and has some impressive craftsmanship to it. But equally, peering over the edge to spot your hotel from afar makes you realise just how large, yet densely packed Ibiza is.
Now, it’s possible to enjoy a quiet, relaxing holiday in Ibiza, but why neglect what it is truly world-renowned for? Amnesia Ibiza is the epitome of what Ibiza’s nightlife has to offer. Winning the Best Global Club in 2007, 08, 09, and 11, it’s a must-visit for those that enjoy a dance.
You will likely have the chance to see a world-class DJ perform at what will be one of the better parties you’ll ever be a part of.
