Ibiza is mainly known as a party island, but it offers much more. The rugged coastlines, the old town and sandy beaches are ideal for hiking and relaxing. And of course, it has a pleasant climate, so you can stay here at any time of year.
The island of Ibiza belongs to the Balearic Islands, which lie to the east of Spain. With an area of 575 km², Ibiza is a relatively small island in the Mediterranean. It is about 45 km long and 25 km wide. You can combine a visit with the more southern Formentera.
What to see in Ibiza:
Es Vedra Nature Reserve
You will find various nature reserves, which have been established by the Spanish government to protect the special, but fragile nature. The Es Vedra Nature Reserve is an island that can be reached by boat. You can walk here to the highest point in all of Ibiza: 476 meters high.
Las Salinas National Park
The Las Salinas National Park is a small ecosystem in itself. This nature reserve consists of 75 percent sea and runs all the way to Formentera. A wonderful place for swimming, snorkeling, and walking along the rugged coast.
Few people know that Ibiza Town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. The old town, which is higher than the rest of the city, is called Dalt Villa. Here you will find the mighty cathedral and the famous archaeological museum.
Another well-known attraction is the ruins of the settlement of Sa Caleta, which was once set up by the Phoenicians. This old town is about ten kilometers to the west.
