Ibiza may be famous as a clubber’s paradise, but this beautiful Balearic Island has a host of surprises waiting to be discovered. The livelier south has plenty to offer thrill-seekers, while the more tranquil north has many of its own beauties to reveal and offers a perfect location for family holidays or romantic couple’s escapes.
Ringed by inviting beaches and dramatic cliffs, much of Ibiza’s interior is covered in pine forests. With two stunning national parks, nature-lovers will relish a chance to explore the picturesque beauty. The climate here remains mild all year round with an average winter temperature of 15°C. But true sun-worshippers will come in the summer months when temperatures can reach above 30°C and rainfall is a rarity.
With a rich and varied heritage that can be traced back to the Phoenicians, Ibiza is simply dripping in history and culture. Those who wish to can walk the ramparts of the Old Town in Ibiza City (a World Heritage Site) or see the incredible bronze-age cave paintings in San Antonio. With its ample access to the sea, Ibiza is also an ideal place to enjoy Spanish seafood cuisine, especially paella, at which the island excels.
Of course, there is always the option to just lay back in the Mediterranean sun and enjoy the ambience of this cool, beautiful and fascinating island.
