Ibiza is an island well known for a great nightlife, electronic music and wild party scenes. The island boasts beautiful beaches, expansive history and a nightlife that is rivalled by very few places. A popular destination for celebrities, Ibiza is located off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea and has a population of about 132,000. It is a member of the Balearic Islands and is the third largest island in the chain. The island is just shy of 40 kilometres from end to end and can be seen in one day.
Large portions of the island are designated World Heritage Sites. The island itself is about ten times the size of Manhattan and was founded in 654 BC by Phoenician settlers. Through time the island has been conquered several times, with the island seeing the arrival of democracy in the 1970s. Ibiza’s tourism industry took off in the mid-1900s as Spain made a push increase tourism. Today, the island is a part of Spain and is a popular destination for Europeans as well as other international travellers, attracting around 2.8 million tourists per year.
Stepping away from Ibiza’s beautiful beaches and nightlife, you will find remains of the original settlers as well as other remains of populations that inhabited the island thousands of years ago. Most of the areas you can access easily. The island offers many landmarks for history buffs to see, from castles to churches.
Ibiza has five city-municipalities, each offering something different. The largest city in Ibiza is Ibiza Town, which is located on the southeastern coast of the island. Some of the island’s best nightlife is here, including the nightclub Pacha, which was voted one of the world’s best nightclubs. The town of San Antonio is considered the heart of the clubbing scene and is home to Sunset Strip, which is home to the island’s most famous bars and DJs, as well as the West End. The West End is another popular spot for bars and music and is only a few streets wide.
The island offers more than just the party scene and can be a great place for families to visit. Santa Eulalia is the third largest city on the island and is a popular spot for families to visit. The city is the centre of Ibiza’s food culture, featuring some of the best restaurants on the island. Guests who visit Santa Eulalia will find a city that is more relaxed than the other cities on the island. There is some nightlife here, just not like what you see in Ibiza town and San Antonio.
