Ibiza

Ibiza holidays


Glamorous and edgy all at once, Ibiza is a clubber’s heaven, especially 24-hour party places like Ibiza Town and San Antonio. But it’s got its softer side, too – the north of the island is full of secret coves and hills coated in lush, rich-green pine trees.

One island, two stories

Ibiza may be best known as the party capital of the Med, but stray away from the main resorts and you’ll find oodles of traditional charm and unspoiled natural beauty. It’s long been a hangout for hippies, too, and there are still several bohemian enclaves dotted about the island.

Clubbing paradise

Ibiza’s club scene is second to none, drawing in hordes of dance aficionados with its world-class DJs and big-name clubs like Pacha. And that’s not to mention the legendary beach parties – get down to the bass-fuelled grooves on these sizzling sands. Stay up for one sensational all-nighter.

Traditional ways

Away from the bright lights of the party towns, traditional hamlets dot the countryside, many of them barely changed in centuries. Then there’s the island’s capital, Ibiza Town, with its UNESCO-listed old quarter crammed full of fascinating medieval architecture. There’s so much history to get to know under the surface.

San Antonio Bay

Along the west coast, this blissful bay is the place to be. With its stunning beaches, turquoise blue sea and sandy coves, San Antonio Bay is the quieter, more tranquil sibling of San Antonio town.

Beaches

Whether you’re a relaxer or a fun seeker, Costa Blanca’s beaches have something for all. Check out the water sports on Benidorm’s Blue Flag-awarded beach or head to Alicante for 7km of soft golden sand. Calpe’s the place to be if you’re looking for a lively promenade, and this one’s packed with bars, restaurants and shops.

Benirras

Sights

Birdwatchers and nature lovers will find lots to do in Calpe, and the sunset here is truly stunning. History and culture lovers in search of an authentic Spanish experience should head to the old hilltop villages of Altea and Guadalest – straight out of the pages of a fairytale.

Eating and drinking

Arroz – rice – is the thing here, with more varieties of paella than you can shake a stick at. Look out for paella made with fresh local seafood that’s served in restaurants across the area. If you love sweets, try turron, hard nougat made from sugar, honey and egg whites and sprinkled with nuts.
