Rumor has it Ibiza is the place to be for partygoers and night crawlers alike (nothing new so far, right?). However, we must tell you there’s more behind the club scene: from iconic landmarks to breath-taking monuments, the list goes on and on – worry not, we kept it attention-friendly and jotted down a few key spots for your holiday’s kick-off.
Needless to say, the beach is where any discourse about Ibiza shall start, and for a good reason – it is an island after all. Among the eighties balmy beaches that stretch along its coast, you will surely find what you are looking for (whether that’s a remote white-sanded site, a happy-hour spot or well…both).
Case in point? Call it Cala Tarida. For those of you who can’t do without a cultural trip, museums and monuments are located in Ibiza Town, Saint Josep, Saint Eularia and many other cities – just google Cala d’Hort for a fine example. On this note and just a stone’s thrown from the cult-favourite, party-loving Marina Botafoch, the historic center of the city lies between the walls of Dalt Vila: an open-air museum devoted to the origins of the island.
Hunting for a jaw-dropping sunset? Don’t go further than San Antoni: its famous Sunset Strip is everything you need. As far as shopping is concerned, leave the tried-and-tasted stores behind and dive into the essence of hippy culture in the Las Dalias market. Located in San Carlos, it’s a hip bazaar of quirky trinkets, colorful clothes and handcrafted paraphernalia. Last but not least (we’re just trying to honor our keep-it-short premise), sack off taxis and buses for a walk (or cycle) around the Natural Park of Ses Salines.
Oh, Formentera? Why not, it’s just a ferry-ticket away.
