Ibiza, in Spanish Eivissa, is one of the four Spanish Balearic islands in the Mediterranean and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is famous for its clubbing scene – hedonistic, youthful and vibrant. The island is only 28 miles long by 16 miles wide and it is easy to visit the main sights in one day.
From May to November, Ibiza is sunny, hot and dry, making it a great destination for a beach holiday. Temperatures can reach 100F or higher in the summer months, while winters are cooler – around 50F – and can be rainy. Summer is the peak season, when thousands of Europeans descend on the island for the clubbing and rave festivals.

Ibiza Airport (IBZ)
Ibiza Airport is the international airport serving the Balearic island of Ibiza. It lies 4.5 miles southwest of the capital, Ibiza Town. As the island is a major European holiday destination, it features some year-round domestic services as well as several dozen seasonal routes to cities across Europe. It is also used as a seasonal hub by European budget airline Vueling.
No US airlines fly directly to Ibiza, so plan on flying to one of the main Spanish cities, such as Madrid or Barcelona, then picking up a domestic flight.
Flights to Ibiza land at Ibiza Airport (IBZ). It’s a short drive of 20-25 minutes in a hire car to the center of Ibiza Town. Bus route 10 departs every 15 minutes to Ibiza Town. Getting around is easy as Ibiza is so small. Buses are cheap and run between Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni every 15 or 30 minutes. Buses from Ibiza Town go to Santa Eularia, Ses Salines and Platja d’en Bossa, and from Sant Antoni to Cala Bassa, Cala Conta and Cala Tarida. Taxis are also cheap. If you fancy island-hopping, the ferries go to Majorca and Formentera, two of the other three Balearics.
Ibiza Town, known locally as Vila Eivissa, is the capital of the island and is split into two distinct areas. The old town, Dalt Vila, is located on a hill next to the coast. The new town, Eixample, is spread out below. With a population of barely 50,000, the capital supports a surprisingly big restaurant scene, especially around the revamped marina. The beautiful 14th century Cathedral of Santa Maria d’Eivissa is in the old town, as is the Puig des Molins, an ancient necropolis.
Three miles north of Ibiza Town is the monument of Christ, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a 75 ft high statue inspired by Christ the Redeemer. Drive 20 minutes northwest of the capital to visit the beautiful Caves of Can Marca at San Miguel. It is also possible to book wine-tasting tours at various bodegas.
If you like to dance all night, head for the clubs. Ibiza pioneered the electronic dance music scene and the Balearic beat style. The most famous club – Pacha – is located in Ibiza Town, but most clubs are in the town of Sant Antoni and you’ll need to book taxis. The clubbing scene, known for its hedonism, is mainly from June to September, when all the top DJs play sets.
Catalan and Spanish are the two official languages but English and German are widely spoken.
If you’re heading for the nightlife, beware of dealers approaching you offering recreational drugs. If you’re caught with even a minor amount for personal consumption, you can be fined up to €30,000.
