Why fly to Ibiza?
Somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea right now there is a little island throbbing. That little island would be Ibiza and that throbbing is the thousands of people having the time of their lives.
Ibiza is part of the Balearic Islands of Spain.
Most people associate this gorgeous little piece of earth as party central with top DJs from around the world flooding to the city and setting up shop every summer. These parties are known to start late at night and continue right into the morning when revelers wind down with a sobering sunrise on the beach along with a delicious Spanish breakfast
Besides the night parties there are a ton of other things you can do if you decide to leave your hotel room before afternoon cocktail time arrives.
To get a taste of island life, wake up early and head to Mercado, you can watch local fishermen offload their morning catch.
Follow that up with a visit to a mercadillo hippy - or a hippy market and you will find all sorts of cool things from hippy-era-esque dresses and shirts to jewellery and crafts created by local artists. Markets take place in various locations throughout the week, with one of the most popular being on Saturdays in San Carlos.
Naturally, if you are in Ibiza you will spend some of your time on the lovely beaches, there are many for you to choose from with the most popular being Playa D'en Bossa. Here is where you will find the action, where people come to watch and be seen. Many of the restaurants and bars are located along the waterfront area and you can enjoy a nice lunch as you gaze out into the crystal waters.
Take a walk after lunch over to Marina Botafoch to check out some of the amazing yachts. Ibiza is a popular spot for the yachting crowd so most people you see will know each other, drop in for a little hobnobbing.
If it is scuba diving you seek than it is scuba diving you will find at Cala d'Hort. Here you will find some of the best scuba diving in the area, allowing you to swim alongside friendly seahorses and all sorts of witty, colorful fish species.
Parts of Ibiza have made it on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list, like the Dalt Villa fortress. Once you cross through the
entrance carved into the fortress walls you will find yourself transported to a medieval city complete with cobble-stoned walks on which sit churches, restaurants, shops and galleries.
The Necropolis Puig des Molins is another site and is a cemetery housing thousands of underground tombs. If you head to the Southeast of the island you can visit the incredible Phoenician ruins.
Ibiza is just plain beautiful, there is no doubt about that and the city is really making an effort to change its reputation from the world's party center to one of cultural distinction. With these efforts, new high end restaurants and other venues have started to pop up. So Ibiza can be as crazy as you want it to be or a calm beach vacation, either way it will be one beautiful sight etched into your memory.
Ibiza has lovely weather and temperatures generally don't fall below mid 10s. In the summer, the city heats up and the numbers are generally in the mid 20s, which is perfect for hitting the beaches. Moving into falls the weather begins to get cooler and drops into the low teens by December. The city experiences minimal rainfall throughout the year with the winter months experiencing the most of it.
When to fly to Ibiza
Ibiza is full of action in the summer months as world-class DJs roll into the city and set up shop. The DJs and parties lure thousands to Ibiza in July and August especially, which means flight ticket prices are quite high at this time.
The tourist flow slows down significantly in the winter months as cooler temperatures prevail, which means flight ticket prices also go down. October is also a good time to head to the city as the tourists have left, flight ticket price have gone down and yet the weather is still quite nice.
Getting into Ibiza
Your gateway to Ibiza opens up at the very conveniently located Ibiza Airport, which sits approximately 10 minutes outside of Ibiza Town. From the airport you can use public transit buses to get into the city. If you travel to the city in July and August, the buses run every 15 minutes while in the winter they run every half hour. Your other option is to use the taxi services which are located outside of the airport.
Getting around Ibiza
There are several ways to get around the city. You can use the public buses. Additionally, there is ferry service to get you across to Spain. Taxis are also available
- One of the things you should check out on the party scene is Cafe del Mar, this is where folks go for a few drinks and a chance to sit back and take in a sunset of epic proportions. Go early to get a good seat as it gets pretty busy close to sunset.
- Take a day trip to the island of Formentara. Here you will find a quaint village-like atmosphere and gorgeous beaches minus the party scene of Ibiza. If you are looking for a place for a quiet picnic or relaxation on the beach without hundreds of your new closest friends, Formentara is a great option.
- For bird-watching head to Ses Salines' salt flats. You can hike through the trail and if you're there in the fall you can catch flamingos nesting.
- Some traditional dishes include Borrida de Rajada, which is skate in an almondy sauce; Arroc de matances, which is rice and pork. Fish stew as well as blood sausage are also very popular. For dessert you must try Flao, which is a pie of cottage cheese and mint.
