Every summer partiers from all around the world make their way to Ibiza. Hitting every famous dance floor, club, and pub on the island. Touching everything from Amnesia, Privilege, to Pacha – and let’s not forget the legendary Ushuaia.
- Beach Day
One of the most obvious and fun ways to spend your time in Ibiza is on the beach. We suggest you look for a pine forest beach and pack a picnic that takes you away from the businesses and bars. To a place where you can enjoy some quality time with yourself, or family and/or friends. There are several pine forests around Ibiza, but we suggest you head north towards Sant Joan De Labritja. Just five miles from there you will find yourself amidst a beautifully scented pine forest, that offers a stunning secluded bay surrounded by steep cliffs. Here you will find the clearest water for snorkeling and swimming.
- Tipsy Delights
Can you call any vacation a holiday if you do not enjoy some locally grown and produced wine? Ibiza has wonderful grape growing weather that calls for vineyards on the island. These vineyards have been owned by families for generations, and offer a good supply of locally produced wine around the world. We suggest you start with Sant Mateu, here you can learn a great deal about wine-making in Ibiza and its history. Once the lesson is over you can indulge in a delicious meal at the restaurant paired with some of the best wine you have ever tasted.
A contemporary monument by Andrew Rogers that is located on top of a rocky coastal shelf. Just 10 minutes away from south of Cala Codolar, you will find “Time and Space, The Speed of Light” commissioned by Cirque du Soleil. The stunning monument features a monument sitting 10-meters high, offering you a great vantage point from where you can enjoy the sunset. We suggest you make your way there during the day, so you can catch glimpses of the Es Vedra Islands.
- Dalt Vila
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the high town of Ibiza – covering the higher half of the town, it offers you a spectacular look into Ibizas history and culture. The story is told using architecture, and art placed in various museums in the area. Inside these fortified walls, you will find several bars, shops, and restaurants; taking you back in time while offering you a great way to enjoy your time.
- Lost Caves

How to get to and around Ibiza
Flying is almost the only option to travel to Ibiza. In addition, Ibiza Airport is the only airport on the island. 95% of visitors arrive here.
The airport is about six kilometers from the city of Ibiza. To reach the center you have the choice of a taxi or the bus. A taxi will quickly cost you 35 euros, while the bus is up to ten times cheaper.
How to get around?
Although there is public transport in Ibiza, this is not always convenient. Public transport does not reach most of the beaches and coves on the island. At least not to the best. A better option is to rent a car or scooter. This can already be done in the airport or in Ibiza Town itself.
Annual events and festivals
Ibiza is an island that has numerous events and festivals during peak season.
Noche de San Juan is celebrated on the night of June 23rd to 24th… the shortest and most enchanting night of the year.

The Spanish island of Ibiza is generally slightly more expensive than beach resorts on the Spanish mainland. This can also be the case for holidays to Ibiza, but this is certainly not always the case. Renting a car in Ibiza is generally not too bad, for +/- 100 euros per week you can already rent a car. On some beaches you can rent a bed, the prices can vary enormously. For example, you can sometimes pay up to 20 euros for a beach bed on Playa d’en Bossa.
The food and drink can be very expensive in Ibiza. For example, in Ibiza town you can lose €5 for a coke. Fortunately, if you go to the seaside resorts, the prices are a bit lower.
Ibiza is a famous nightlife destination. Again, you can make it as expensive as you want. But if you want to go to the famous clubs, you will have to put down a lot. The average entrance prices range from 40-50 euros to 90 euros for evenings with well-known DJs.
