An Ibiza holiday is not your typical Spanish getaway. There's nary a flamenco dancer in sight, and you're never too far from pulsating electronic music and a dance floor. In Ibiza, you can party, dance until the wee hours, relax on the sandy coastline beaches, hike up to a castle or indulge in Mediterranean cuisine—and even keep an eye out for UFOs.
After you've explored the wealth of Ibiza holiday packages, it’s time to start planning! Your first stop should be Ibiza's "Stonehenge," the 13 basalt columns near Cala Codolar. Enjoy the sunset and be on the lookout for a sky full of stars. You can also see Es Vedra, where out-of-this world UFO sightings are often reported. Another moving, although perhaps less mystical, sunset activity is walking the ramparts of Dalt Vila or the Old Town of Ibiza. These 25 metre tall Renaissance-era walls were built to protect Ibiza's old town, but now offer a gorgeous view of the ocean from the top terrace.
Wind your way through the narrow cobblestone pathways during day or night, the streets are well-lit and make for an ideal nighttime walk. To reach the highest peak in Ibiza, hike up to the Almudaina Castle. You’ll really “tower” over the city with panoramic views of the ocean that surrounds the island. It's a bit of a climb along cobblestone streets, but there is plenty of opportunity to stop for a drink at a local cafe.
Ibiza is overrun with tourists during the summer, but the small, local population maintains a thriving retail industry. Quaint boutiques good for finding local crafts and souvenirs are clustered by the port. You may also spot some designer clothing brands. Although perhaps less developed as shopping areas, you can use one of Wotif’s Ibiza car hire options to check out the town centres and beaches of Santa Eulalia and Sant Antoni.
Like many island locales, Ibiza gets its finest food straight from the sea. When you book your Ibiza holiday package, make a side note to visit the Passeig Maritim promenade along the harbour. Take some time to “mullet” over at the seafood restaurants and cafes, where you can enjoy fish hotpot or Ibizan paella while gazing out at the nearby yachts. Don't forget to explore the inland streets, where you can dine like a local at open-air tables.
“Nightlife” in Ibiza should really be called “all-day-life.” In the global capital for electronic music of all types, there is always a party to get to. Famous clubs draw dance enthusiasts to Ibiza Town and to Sant Antoni, where renowned names in the DJ circuit bring the energy in marathon sets. Don't be shocked if you see a well-known face or two trying to blend in with the crowd.
