An atmosphere that seduces
The magic simply never stops on the Mediterranean’s most international and cosmopolitan island. Its dazzlingly intense light reflects off the traditional houses painted pure white and which form an intrinsic part of the island’s traditional landscape.
500 km2 that are home to countless tiny treasures that visitors will enjoy discovering: peaceful inlets and towns and villages that remain impervious to the passing of time blend into the sensual atmosphere of richly-painted sunsets and endless nights of thrills and excitement.
Ibiza remains a strategic location in the Mediterranean. Renowned as a haven for the hippy movement in the late 1960s, its popular weekly street markets are well worth a visit, lined with stalls selling charming local crafts. Ibiza, the largest of the Pityusic Islands, is also the gateway to its breathtakingly beautiful neighbour, the island of Formentera.
Ibiza’s coastline is home to a large number of autochthonous species that thrive on the rocky seabed and in the meadows of Neptune grass that contribute to the outstanding quality and transparency of its waters. Large colonies of seabirds live just off the coast, including the Yelkouan shearwater, Audouin’s Gull and the European shag.
Ibiza’s cuisine is a mouth-watering mix of meat and fish accompanied by fresh locally-grown vegetables. Fish lovers simply won’t be able to resist two of its best-known specialties: peix sec (literally dried fish) and guisat de peix (fish and shellfish stewed with potatoes). Inland, treat your taste buds to sofrit pagès, a lamb, chicken and potato casserole.
The Phoenicians, Punics, Romans and Carthaginians are just a few of the many civilizations that have contributed to the rich tapestry of Ibiza’s cultural legacy.
Ibiza offers a wide variety of leisure options for the whole family. Its famous turquoise waters lend themselves perfectly to any kind of water-based sports: sailing, surfing, water skiing, canoeing, diving... There are plenty of paths and roads crossing secluded landscapes in between almond trees and traditional orchards, to be travelled by bicycle, Segway or on foot.
This holiday heaven boasts a prime location that offers a melting pot of tradition, culture, nature, art and fun. Visitors to Ibiza will find large beaches for all the family or magical secluded coves, as well as stunningly beautiful islets and breathtakingly beautiful protected nature spaces.
