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.

Portinatx

Tucked away in the scenic northern corner of the island, experience a resort set around a bay of sparkling blues and aquamarines.

Beaches

Ibiza is blessed with a string of soft, sandy beaches. The bigger stretches tend to be lively spots like Playa d’en Bossa and Las Salinas, filled with sun worshippers and banana boats. If you fancy something more low-key, beach-hop around the tiny ‘calas’ hidden among cliffs on the south-west coast.
