The all-night raver, the boho-cool hippie chick, the sexiest babe on the beach – Ibiza is all this and more to those who have a soft spot for the party-loving sister of the Balearics. The cream of Europe's DJs (David Guetta, Luciano, Sven Väth et al) makes the island holy ground for clubbers. And nowhere does sunset chilling like Sant Antoni de Portmany's strip of mellow cafes.
Part of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza is a jewel of the Mediterranean Sea. Besides being the clubbing capital of the world, Ibiza also boasts amazing natural beauty, a superb climate and several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Whether you want to lose yourself to dance listening to the world’s best DJs or enjoy the astoundingly clear sea, warm sun, attractive coves and eventful beaches – or a bit of everything – you have certainly come to the right place.
Ibiza is a great music temple, a trend laboratory, an experimentation platform, a meeting point for professionals in the music industry that get together every summer to offer the best night-time proposals in the world. The best discos, the most glamorous beach clubs, live music with first class international bands, the well-known hippy parties in the local celebrations of each town, and great deejays under the umbrella of the best prepared sponsors. All of these elements merge with staging, performances, audiovisual effects, and unique concepts that are renewed season after season.
Ibiza’s ludic legend is born through the values of tolerance, generosity, and the spontaneous ways of presenting leisure. Pink Floyd got inspiration from the island; The Bee Gees used to rehearse in Sant Antoni, and Cat Stevens sang his Moonshadow in the terraces in the port. Bob Marley, Thin Lizzy, and Eric Clapton performed in Ibiza, and George Michael recorded his hit song Tropicana in a popular hotel of Sant Antoni.
Ibiza has always been the refuge for uncommon people, intellectuals, artists, nonconformists, hedonists. In the late 70s Ibiza’s own musical style was born, the Balearic beat. Today, it still exists. A decade later, the island took off musically with bands and artists such as Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Nick Cave, Nina Hagen, James Brown… Meanwhile, Freddie Mercury and Monserrat Caballé presented their hymn Barcelona.
Electronic music invaded Ibiza in the 90s, and took over the best parties with the best deejays in the world. In the 20thcentury, the island expanded its offers to creating activities fit for all tastes and pockets. From taking a walk through Ibiza’s port while enjoying the disco passacaglia, to reserving a VIP space in one of the best discos in the word, or having a good time in the most exclusive beach clubs, restaurants, and theme hotels.
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.
Ibiza is a party.
Ibiza is located east of the Iberian Peninsula, in the Mediterranean Sea, in the autonomous region of Illes Balears. It has a surface of 572 km2 and it is a small big world that extends from the coast to inland in a smooth topography. Together with Formentera, it forms the Pityusic Islands, or Pine Islands as the Greeks called them.
Ibiza is made up of five towns: Ibiza, which is the capital, Santa Eulària des Riu, Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, Sant Antoni de Portmany, and Sant Joan de Labritja. Each of them offers its visitors both different and supplementary possibilities. According to the register’s last data, the island has a population of over 140,000 inhabitants, although the number of residents grows considerably during summer season.
The capital is located in Ibiza, with its impressive fortress, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. This international award acknowledges its historical, cultural, and architectural value. It is the best preserved coastal fortress in the Mediterranean. Dalt Vila’s acropolis is filled with alleys and monuments such as the castle and the cathedral. It has been a cultural crossover for centuries, and this fortress’ environment is the stage for concerts, poetic cycles, exhibitions, and cultural activities all year round.
The Phoenician remains of Sa Caleta, in San Josep, and the Phoenician-Punic necropolis of Puig des Molins, in Ibiza, are also part of this World Heritage Site, since UNESCO considers that they “are exceptional evidence of urbanization and social life in the Phoenician colonies of the western Mediterranean. They constitute a unique resource, in terms of volume and importance, of material from the Phoenician and Carthaginian tombs,” reads the official justification for inscription.
The UNESCO committee defined Ibiza as a privileged environment due to its diversity and natural values, considering the richness of the prairies of oceanic posidonia, seabed plants, the best preserved in the Mediterranean and located within a Natural Reserve. These prairies hold 220 different species, including three globally threatened, one of them being the monk seal. They are responsible for the purity and transparency of the water that surrounds the island.
Both for its cultural criteria and for its natural values, UNESCO chose Ibiza as one of the places to be preserved for future generations.
Wine and gastronomy
Ibiza lures you with its landscape, climate, people, and also because if offers the best gastronomy beside the beach, in historical places, in the middle of the countryside, or beneath the starry sky.
Have the luxury of eating natural products in their perfect point of ripeness and remember your childhood flavors. Enjoy the peace and freedom atmosphere on the island, just as you are being served a dish of shellfish and rice by the sea, or just tasting the freshest of fish as exquisite as grouper, tuna, San Pedro megrim, or wrasse.
Ibiza is a trip of sensations. The excellent quality of its prime material mixes with the tradition of recipes that come to us with the same uniqueness: the “sofrit pages”, slaughter rice, the “guisat de peix”, the “greixonera”, and the “flaó” are some of the classical recipes. This traditional cuisine passes on the culture and way of life where gathering amongst friends and family, the respect for the legacy of their antecessor, the preservation of the natural environment and land products, and something as intangible as joy and being happy are essential.
Get carried away by its local wine, its virgin olive oil, and its peasant bread, delicacies that can be found on every table. They accompany the magical moment in which eating is the equivalent of taking care of yourself, learning new things, sharing, and smiling.
From the 6th century AC the influence of Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans created an important wine tradition on the island. The smallholdings agricultural economy managed to keep vine growing and the art of making wine for private consumption, a tradition that has passed from parents to children until today.
In 1990, the wine trade was developed on the Pityusic Islands. In a short time, it has become one of the best essence wines in the Mediterranean. It is a limited production were quality goes before quantity. The resulting wines have a deep, provoking, and balsamic scent, with smooth but structured body, ideal to accompany any dish from the local gastronomy.
Ibiza has been producing olive oil by traditional methods since ancient times. The numerous oil mills (“trulls”) and olive trees scattered amongst carob trees and almond tress bear witness to the importance of this production, which is basically aimed at covering the needs of the local market.
Today, there are two oil mills with modern facilities in accordance with health legislation that allow for the production of extra virgin olive oil of excellent quality.
Fauna, flora and natural parks
Ibizan nature is one of the island’s most important charms. No doubt its dense Mediterranean pine forests attract the attention of visitors. In fact, the Greeks knew the Pityusic Islands as Pine Islands, due to the green layer that spread through its fields and mountains all year round. According to recent scientific studies, pine trees have been a trait of the island’s landscape for 7,000 years.
You will be able to enjoy the island’s spectacular sunsets over the Mediterranean sea, bathe in crystal water, wander around wheat fields, vineyards, and orchards, scented with aromatic plants, such as thyme, rosemary, and lavender that grow disorderedly on every corner.
NATURAL PARKS: Ibiza has several natural areas of special interest due to its ecological value and natural beauty. The most prominent ones are Ses Salines natural park and Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell, and the western islets’ natural reserves.
Ses Salines natural park covers the area located between the south of Ibiza and the north of Formentera. It has a territory of 1,786.52 terrestrial hectares and 13,661.80 marine hectares. This park comprises a large variety of environments with different ecological traits: the salt ponds, the beaches, the dune cord, century-long savins, cliffs, and rocky coasts, where we find species such as the pilgrim hawk and the fish eagle, and the Es Freus islets (S’Espalmador, S’Espardell, Es Penjats islet…).
Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell, and the western islets’ natural reserves are located in the south of Ibiza, in Sant Josep de Sa Talaia. The protected territory includes the islets and the marine environment around it.
Without a doubt, Ibizan nature represents the most prominent appeal of the island. It has a surface of 572 m2 and 210 km of beaches that can be enjoyed all year round thanks to its warm temperatures and close to 3,000 hours of sun. Ibiza offers multiple possibilities to enjoy a swim in the sea on beaches that include a large array of services and different atmospheres.
The beaches on the island are known for their singular beauty and turquoise transparent water thanks to the oceanic posidonia on the seabed. It has been UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
There are magical bays, like Cala d´Hort, overlooked by Es Vedrà islet; other singular beauties, such as Platges de Comte; rarely visited corners, as Es Pou des Lleó; and big and familiar beaches, such as Platja d’en Bossa and Es Figueral. The beaches of Ses Salines and Es Cavallet are within a protected natural environment. They have a dune system of great ecological value.
Tradition and folklore
The arrival of travelers from all over the world and the crossroads of cultures that the island represents today have not weakened its traditions. On the contrary, they have enhanced and added value to them. The Ibizan people take refuge on their identity and culture, and they enjoy sharing it. Churches, wells, and scattered houses throughout the territory are an example of the popular knowledge and the ability of adapting to the terrain.
Ibizan people created their own house structure, the peasant house, that still stands today against the effects of the modern world. They are century-long constructions considered as the origin of well-established customs, such as meeting on the traditional “porxo” or porch, or using the old oil mill to make oil. Ibizan landscape is dotted with the most beautiful whitewashed houses made out of different size cubes that grow with new spaces as the family grows. They are always facing the sun. Still today, Ibizan people’s nickname is the name that has been given to their houses. It is more important than their very own last name. The old peasant houses are passed from generation to generation and renovations are made while trying to respect traditional architecture.
In Ibiza, craftsmen find to whom they will bequeath their knowledge, and popular songs are passed from grandparents to grandchildren. The same way, the “ball pagès”, the traditional peasant dance on the island, reminds us of the Ibiza of hundreds, maybe thousands of years ago. You will be able to see “ball pagès” in the church square, on any day of celebration, or in the old communal wells. This highlights how important it is for Ibizan people to keep their customs alive.
