The Ibiza Area Guide

Sights and attractions

Though perhaps known best for being home to the club scene, Ibiza offers far more than the opportunity to dance the night away. Home to various UNESCO World Heritage sites, Ibiza is host to some stunningly picturesque scenes. Benirras bay is famed for its fabulous sunsets, with the sun dipping into the ocean and painting the sky shades of orange into mauve into starlit black. The ramparts of Sa Penya are a famed walking spot, offering views over and across the sea, island and city. More intrepid explorers might journey to nearby ruins, including the remains of the first Phoenician settlement on Ibiza, the former settlement’s remnants lying as they have for the past 1,400 years. In Ibiza itself, the Catedral de Santa Maria d'Eivissa, a 14th century example of Catalan Gothic architecture, is not to be missed. One of Spain’s oldest surviving cathedrals, it sits in the area of Ibiza known as Dalt Vila, ‘upper town’, where some of Ibiza’s oldest buildings and business lie, waiting to be rediscovered day after day by the next traveller.

Restaurants and cafes

Spain is a nation with some of the finest cuisine in the world, combining the best of Mediterranean cooking with its local flair and exemplary seafood. Ibiza doesn’t disappoint, boasting some of the finest examples of Spanish cooking.

A visit to Spain without experiencing the small plate phenomenon that is tapas is a visit wasted. Cova Santa, a restaurant equally famous for its food, music and it being built into a cliffside cave, boasts some of the best tapas on the island. If café eating is more your style, then Can Gourmet hosts a menu resplendent with sandwiches and more of the small plate options Spain is so famous for. Sa Capella, a restaurant set inside a 400-year-old church, offers classic Spanish dishes, with some local flair and twists. The menu changes depending on the season, with a range that can include its signature suckling pig or even ox served over salt.

Shops

Ibiza boasts that it contains more shops in a small space than anywhere else in the world. Whilst that may or may not be true, it certainly hosts one of the world’s widest varieties.

Traditional local stores, such as tobacconists or local craftspeople, observe traditional hours, opening in the mornings and closing for an afternoon siesta, before reopening until evening. Modern fashion holds itself to more stringent hours and Ibiza has a range of international brands and fashion houses, all catering to the varied audience Ibiza attracts. From local stores such as Stradivarius, Ibiza’s answer to Topshop, to famous Spanish brand Zara, Ibiza has it all.

For those who enjoy finding their bargains in a market setting, the Sant Jordi market is the largest in Ibiza. With a huge range of items, from antiques to local crafts, it’s sure to reward any would-be explorer with some manner of treasure.

Travel

As an international destination, Ibiza offers numerous opportunities to travel within it, as well as to and from it. Ferries and cruises dock at the island daily, with routes available to much of the Spanish mainland, including the cities of Barcelona, Denia and Valencia. Ibiza International Airport offers seasonal routes to many of the travel hubs in Europe, as well as numerous year-round domestic flights. Over 95% of travellers to Ibiza pass through the airport at some point in their travels, with constant upgrades ensuring a smooth transition from the air to the beaches. Bus services run throughout the island, offering efficiency and beautiful views of the ocean, countryside and storied architecture. Whilst car hire is offered at the air and seaports, those seeking the most authentic experience opt for scooter hire, offering the ease of movement and freedom that so many Spanish natives choose in their own lives.
