Ibiza is, rightfully, most famous for its pristine beaches (from peaceful inlets to buzzing beach parties) and its nightlife, where partying til dawn to some of the best known DJs is the norm, but there is so much more to do on the island. Get on saddle – either bike or horse – and explore Ibiza’s inland with its quaint farmhouses and beautiful scenery. Take to the sea and get involved in some adrenaline-fuelled watersports or go diving as the clear water and temperatures of up to 26 degrees offer excellent conditions.
Ibiza Food & Drink
For something typical to this Balearic Island fresh fish is a must in the form of zarzuela
a local fish stew, or for meat lovers try sofrit pages
a hearty stew made from lamb, pork, chicken, potatoes and, another local specialty, locally produced sausages. For your sweet tooth don’t miss flao
– cheesecake flavoured with mint, aniseed and honey. Ibiza produces its own wine and try Hierbas Ibicenas
an aniseed based drink with herbs, thought to be good for the digestion.
The island’s capital, Ibiza Town Eivissa is a real gem with a pretty harbour, old churches, a couple of museums, numerous cafes and an ancient fortress Dalt Vila which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site so is definitely worth a day spent wandering the pretty streets. For something a bit different visit the salt fields – ideal for that perfect sunset shot. Or a little further afield, take a visit to the neighbouring island of Formentera and enjoy the spectacular beaches.
