Ibiza was a major trading post along the Mediterranean routes for millennia, eventually establishing its own trading stations along the nearby Balearic island of Majorca until it was conquered by King James the first in 1235. The island maintained its own government until King Philip the fifth of Spain abolished the local government’s autonomy in 1715. Democracy arrived in the late 1970s. Today, the island is part of the Balearic Autonomous Community, along with Majorca, Menorca and Formentera.
Ibiza is an incredible place! One of the Balearic Islands, this group of islands are so epic to explore, every single one of them! Ibiza is much more than just partying, nightlife and pills. There are so many incredible things to do all over the island. You could spend weeks here just seeing new things, trying all the delectable food and relaxing on the beach. It’s a very diverse place with everything you want to experience.
Stay Somewhere Truly Special
Stay at a charming villa in Es Cubells, tucked away on the south western part of the island, you will feel like a movie star in your own private oasis. These luxury private villas have everything you could want. A fantastic pool, a gorgeous kitchen, or a breathtaking view. A unique stay in one of these is an experience not just a place to sleep.
With great locations on the island you’ll never be far from something interesting to do, great food to try or just a little quirk that makes visiting here always special. Don’t waste a moment in a boring box hotel that’s underwhelming and over priced. Get the most from your holiday and truly have a fantastic time.
Eat Like A Local
The food is an attraction all on its own, with a rich history and culture the culinary level of Ibiza is many layers thick. Talamanca is a favourite area to visit for the sights and sounds of a port town. While you’re there check out a preferred restaurant spot for tapas and seafood. Not only that, but they also have some of the local and iconic Spanish dishes. The food is refined and paired with excellent cocktails. Take a seat on the calming terrace with an uninterrupted view of the port and the Balearic Sea while you dine in the open air.
Experience The Entire Island
Don’t just stay in your small corner of the island, or spend your entire holiday on the beach in Ibiza. There is so much to do here! This list could go on and on with all the fun things to do here. However, on the top of the chill out list is the hippy market at Punta Arabia. An old market for local traders and hippies. This sensory filled spot has everything. Hand-made goods, crafts, art, wood carvings and clothes, you can find anything here.
Next you must check out San Juan, a delightful little town in the north. On Sunday it hosts a lovely little market. Most of the stalls here are quite unique. Wander around and see what you fancy. Even just strolling this part of town, beneath the white-washed buildings and cobblestone streets, is relaxing and brings back a simpler time.
Don’t Miss The Final Show
The best show on the island is free and unlike anything else. Delight in the simple pleasures in a sometimes chaotic place because the day isn’t over unless you watch the sun set behind the horizon. Like the curtain fall at the end of a really great play. After a day exploring the island grab a bottle of cava and head to Es Vedra which is a truly gorgeous spot in the day as well as at dusk. The sun sets here are a life changing experience.
