Bienvenido a Ibiza! One of the most beautiful Balearic islands in the Mediterranean. Don’t dismiss this as a young person’s clubbing island, Ibiza has so much more to offer than you may think. Although it may be most famous for its nightlife, Ibiza has quaint old towns, tranquil beaches, sandy coves and pine-clad hills. If it’s activity you’re after, there are numerous opportunities for all kinds of sports and leisure facilities on hand like scuba diving, horse-riding, fishing, sailing and golf. It’s a destination for all ages.
Volotea are offering direct flights from Southampton Airport to Ibiza on Thursdays from the 25th May 2017 and Thomson are offering package holidays. With the island being 45km by 25km, nothing is too far from anywhere, including the main town which is just 7.5km away.
Transport from Ibiza Airport
The airport is located on the South West side of the island. There is plenty of public transport to get you around but main tourist spots tend to all be accessible by road, so hiring a car or bike might be the way to go. There are also boat charters that will help you island hop to the other surrounding smaller islands.
Top things to see and do
Es Vedra, a symbol of Ibiza, isn’t a town or a building or a club, but one of the most mesmerizing sights you will see. This imposing rock, jutting out of the Mediterranean like a little volcano, is surrounded by myth and legend. It will put you under its spell as you visit the best place on the island to watch the sun go down.
Ibiza is full of history and you will find bundles of it when you visit Ibiza Old Town, Dalt Vila which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk the narrow, cobbled streets and take in the spectacular views from the ramparts, the colossal fortifications that encircle the town. It’s a treasure trove of an excursion.
Las Salinas Salt Flats, found at the most southern tip of the Island, have been in use for over 2000 years for the trade of salt or ‘white gold’ by the Carthaginians. The salt is produced as the water on these flat lakes evaporates during the summer months leaving a glittering layer at the bottom. This unique shimmer will present some of the most stunning sunsets you’ll ever see.
The Island is littered with so many stunning beaches and coves, you’ll be spoilt for choice, but known as one of the coolest is Playa de Ses Salinas, named after the surrounding salt flats. The high amount of salt in the water means staying afloat is never an issue. You’ll find soft white sand, clear waters and beautiful people.
Off the beaten track
Dirt tracks all over the Island will take you to some beautiful hidden caves, there are also some you can swim to. Some of the most famous though are the Cova de Can Marca, situated in the North of the Island in the port of Sant Miquel. These ancient geological forms, waterfalls and channels were once a smugglers’ hideaway. Open all year round, it’s a nice cool place to go if you have had enough sun for one day. There are light and music displays in the caves as part of the multilingual tours which will have you transfixed.
Quite literally off the beaten track and into the sea! With the waters as crystal clear and inviting as they are, it would be crazy not to see what’s beneath the blue. There are several water sports activity companies that will offer you snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking and sailing to name a few. You’ll discover a whole new underwater world.
