Of the Spanish Balearic Islands, Ibiza is the closest to the Spanish coast near Valencia. Until the 60s this island was still relatively unknown, but when it was published in the holiday brochures together with the coastal towns of Benidorm and Torremolinos, tourism got underway.
Despite the popularity, Ibiza (Eivissa) still has a special magic for many people and its original character is not lost. The north in particular consists of an area with many orchards and wooded hills. Ibiza Town looks like a Spanish city from the 50s. Many artists and hippies used to come to the island. Nowadays that has become a lot less.
The nightlife in Ibiza has a well-known reputation for a reason. You will find many bars and restaurants, but also large clubs. Some close the doors at 7:00, while others will open at this time. If you want, you can party 24 hours a day. In the winter it is a lot quieter, most clubs are closed. The real festive season takes place from the end of May to the beginning of October.
From Ibiza you can sail for an hour to the largely unspoilt island of Formentera. Enjoy quiet beaches and azure blue water here. The boat departs from the port of La Savina.
