Fauna and flora

Ibiza’s coastline is home to an array of endemic species, thanks to its rocky seabeds and prairies of Posidonia oceanica, a marine plant that favours the purity and transparency of its waters. Major colonies of seabirds live near the coast, such as the Mediterranean shearwater, the Audouin’s gull and the European shag.

Meanwhile, the island’s land-based wildlife includes reptiles such as the Ibiza wall lizard and the Moorish gecko.


Ibizan cuisine fuses meat or fish with locally sourced vegetables. Peix sec (dried fish) and guisat de peix (fish stew) are two exquisite specialities for fish lovers. Meanwhile, sofrit pagès is a lamb and chicken stew with potatoes, typical of inland villages.

And, of course, sobrasada (sausage), botifarró (blood sausage) and Ibizan honey marry perfectly with local wines. What’s more, traditional Ibizan desserts such as flaó (peppermint-flavoured cheesecake), greixonera (bread pudding) and orelleta (shortbread) are washed down with Frígola, made with brandy, thyme, sugar and water, or Hierbas Ibicencas, made with anise and herbs.

History and culture

Phoenicians, Punics, Romans and Carthaginians are just some of the very diverse civilisations that have left a major cultural and heritage legacy in Ibiza. In 1999, UNESCO declared the walled area of Ibiza Town a World Heritage Site, thanks to its status as a perfectly conserved waterfront fortress. What’s more, the areas of La Marina, Sa Penya and Es Soto, the Punic necropolis Puig des Molins, the Phoenician settlement of Sa Caleta and the ancient orchards of Ses Feixes were included in the classification.

Recreation and leisure

Ibiza boasts a huge variety of leisure options for the entire family. Its world-famous turquoise waters are perfect for all kinds of water sports: sailing, surfing, water skiing, canoeing, scuba diving, and so on. For land lovers, numerous bicycle, Segway and hiking itineraries cross through off-the-beaten-track places nestled among almond trees and traditional orchards.

What’s more, Ibiza boasts attractions such as hippie and craft markets, cultural activities, museums, MICE venues, children’s shows and a world-famous club scene.

Beach and surroundings

This heavenly place nestled in a privileged location fuses tradition, culture, nature, art and fun. In Ibiza, you’ll find everything from sweeping family-friendly beaches and magical hidden coves to spectacular islets and stunning protected natural spaces.

Santa Eulària des Riu, located fifteen kilometres from Ibiza Town, is home to iconic beaches such as Cala Llonga, Cala Nova, S’Argamassa and Es Canar. What’s more, a wide promenade runs along the coast and is perfect for sunset strolls.
