Fall under the spell of Ibiza, a bijou Balearic isle known for nature, history and nightlife. Daytimes revolve around a range of activities, such as chilling out on a string of idyllic beaches and diving in crystal-clear seas; being pampered at a sumptuous spa, indulging in the finest new-wave cuisine at the latest culinary hotspot or shopping in boho-hippy markets and edgy designer boutiques. Roaming off-the-beaten track, you can venture into pine-clad rural areas, scattered with sleepy hamlets oozing charm, and discover the island’s UNESCO-listed ancient wonders. Alternatively, you could simply linger poolside at a private villa, staff on hand to cater to your every whim. By night, Ibiza transforms into an exciting place of fun, whether you fancy late-night clubbing, an open-air cultural event or simply chilling out at an exclusive, toes-in-the-sand, lounge bar.

Highlights+

Beaches
Surrounded by sparkling seas, Ibiza’s coastline measures some 200km, punctuated by dozens of pebble coves, long sandy beaches and grassy dunes. Cala Jondal is a broad swathe of pebble and sand, framed by pine-clad hills and stylish eateries; on the southern tip of Ibiza, Las Salinas is a mile-long scoop of sand fringed by pine forest and groovy bars, while Cala d’Hort, in the southwest, is a wide arc of talcum powder-soft sands overlooking Es Vedra rock. Neighbouring little sister, Formentera, is more peaceful and perfect for a day-trip, offering sublime beaches including Playa Mitjorn, where there are trendy beach clubs and white sands sweep across the island’s southern shores (please note: clothing is optional here!) and there’s a cosmopolitan vibe.

Outdoor Fun
Explore Ibiza and Formentera by bike and follow waymarked cycling routes or don wetsuits and dive from one of the many PADI-accredited dive centres, offering great visibility and balmy sea temperatures. Las Salinas National Park is a location to note, featuring a wonderful bed of seagrass and prolific marine life.

Shopping
Ibiza Town is lined with one-off boutiques, selling everything from glitzy beachwear and clubbing gear, to handmade keepsakes and leather goods. Hippy markets are also very popular, such as Sant Jordi on Saturday mornings, in the hippodrome outside Ibiza Town or Las Dalias in San Carlos, also held on a Saturday.

Nightlife
Famous the world over, the ‘White Isle’ boasts an ever-growing assortment of hip and glam bars, complemented by chic and fashionable nightclubs, attracting young clubbers in hordes every summer. Top name DJs also fly in, keen to mix and spin their blaring tunes and create the ultimate clubbing location. Names to note include Pacha, Amnesia, Space and Nikki Beach. Alternatively, opt for one of Ibiza Town’s atmospheric pavement cafés and feel the island vibe over drinks, tapas and music.

History
Various civilisations have landed on Ibiza and there are interesting places in which you can immerse yourself in the island’s rich heritage, including the Phoenician site at Sa Caleta, the necropolis at Puig des Molins and the World Heritage-listed Eivissa, Dalt Villa (Ibiza Old Town). This elegant capital of whitewashed buildings and cobbled streets is a delight to explore. The oldest part was first settled by the Phoenicians and features 16th century ramparts that were built to keep Turkish pirates out. Walk the walls, keeping watch for medieval mansions, the cathedral, hilltop citadel and galleries dripping with art.

Climate+

In the main, Ibiza enjoys mild temperatures and lots of year-round sunshine and breezy island winds. May to September is the main holiday season, peaking in July and August in terms of heat (eleven hours of hot sun a day) and tourist numbers. Early spring is a wonderful time to visit, with balmy, sun-filled, days and almond blossom scenting the countryside – a great time for outdoor activities and those interested in plants and birdlife. From October, the weather can be rather wet.

Health facilities, hygiene and disease risks vary worldwide and you should take health advice about your specific needs from your general practitioner or a specialist clinic as early as possible before travel. Those planning to become pregnant should discuss their travel plans with their healthcare provider to assess their risk of infection with Zika.

In addition, we highly recommend that you seek specialist advice from your doctor and, where recommended, obtain vaccinations or tablets for protection against, for example: Malaria, Hepatitis A, Polio and Typhoid. In some cases, treatments for Malaria should begin well in advance of travel. Travellers may also be required to show Yellow Fever Certificates on arrival in certain destinations ie, some African countries. Please note that you are strongly advised against scuba-diving for 24 hours before travelling by air.
