Discover the other side of Ibiza this summer

There’s no denying that Ibiza, otherwise known at The White Island, has become synonymous for being ‘the’ party mecca but the island is also a destination of culture and grace. Hop on board at Southampton Airport and encounter the more enriching side of Ibiza...

The history

A trip here reveals the remains of ancient Moorish settlements and waterways; hippie caves and rock carvings, flowing springs and amazing flora and fauna. It was first settled by Phoenician navigators around 654BC where they crafted a hilltop citadel that would be refined over centuries by Carthaginians, Romans, Moorish incomers and Spanish “reconquerors”.

The landscape

The island has some truly beautiful beaches ranging from rocky coves to white sandy shores which are among the cleanest in the Med. In land you will find beautiful white washed villages, each with their own ancient churches and on the southernmost tip of the island is one of Ibiza’s most famous landmarks, Las Salinas Salt Flats which have been in use for over 2000 years and provide the most spectacular spot for that sunset photo.

Ibiza Town

The ancient capital city of Eivissa is a must see for all visitors. Immerse yourself in the island’s rich heritage at the medieval castle of Dalt Vila or sip a cocktail in the buzzing port - it’s a great place to do some celebrity spotting too!

For the freshest catch of the day

If seafood is your thing, then follow the locals to Sa Caleta, a red cliff-lined secluded beach and the location of a fabulously understated restaurant. Sample the succulent fresh catch with a bottle of local wine whilst the sun dips down or if you want to taste Paella in a truly unique setting, then book a table on the terrace at Del Carmen - it offers wonderful views of the bay and the mythical island of Es Vedra.

A beach for those in the know

Less popular with tourists and offering a little piece of Mediterranean paradise is Cala Llentrisca, a charming slender stretch of beach with the bluest of blue waters and a quaint rickety jetty where you can quietly reflect on life.

Surrounded by beautiful seas, great weather and stunning mountains and valleys, Ibiza entices adventure and exploration for all ages!
