The Island

Ibiza is one of the most beautiful islands in Europe, and it certainly is the liveliest one. Every year more than 4 million visitors come to the island, which has just over 100,000 permanent residents. ‘Eivissa’ is the formal Catalan name and the name used by its inhabitants. The Balearic island has had many occupants over the last thousand years - from the ancient Phoenician and Carthigan peoples to the Greeks, Moors, Turks and Catalans.

By the 60's, though, the main invaders were hippies and they established Ibiza as a place for counterculture. All left their cultural fingerprints on Ibiza with a 2,000-year-old salt industry, an old smugglers route, a hippie market and a charming old town. Today, Ibiza is more international than ever - this is evident in the many restaurants offering very different culinary experiences and in the bars and clubs with chic designs set against absolutely breathtaking scenery.

Beach Life

One of the overwhelming reasons for travelling to Ibiza is enjoying the lovely beaches dotting the island's coastline, swimming in crystal-clear waters and enjoying the company of happy people. Whether you are here for the parties, water sports or just to get a nice tan, Ibiza certainly has the beach for you.

Do & See

Ibiza is more than just bars and beach life. Take a day to explore the island by bike or car, stroll among the narrow streets of Dalt Vila and pick up a real bargain at the Hippy Market. There are ample possibilities for water sports, diving and snorkelling, too.

Bars & Nightlife

Ibiza's bars set the scene for the incredible nightlife to come. Drinks are a little cheaper here than in the clubs, and most bars (unlike clubs) have free entry. There are club ticket deals and sometimes promotional offers on free chupitos (shots).
Party-goers and DJs come to Ibiza from all over the world to party all night long. It is decidedly one of the most incredible clubbing experiences in the world. Season runs from June through September. Club entrance fees are usually anywhere between €20-60.

Shopping

Ibiza brags of having the largest number of stores on the smallest area in the world, and it really looks the part. On Ibiza, you can find a selection of the latest fashion pieces for your night out or cool accessories for your day at the beach. Just south of Ibiza Town is the resort Figueretas, where visitors will find plenty of shops selling brand-name clothing, sportswear, souvenirs and handicrafts from Ibiza. The well-known Malacoste market is also located here.
In Sant Antoni and Sant Antoni Bay you can shop at large department stores and shops along the coast. You’ll find everything from fashion and beach wear to local souvenirs.
