Off the Mediterranean coast of Spain's Iberian Peninsula lies the Balearic Islands, and of these islands Ibiza has the best parties. The official name is the Catalan "Eivissa". The maximum length of the island along its highway is only 42 km, but since thats still a little far to walk you can reserve a car hire in Ibiza to get around the island during your stay.
Ibiza and Formentara are the two smallest of the Balearic islands, and are commonly referred to as the Pine Islands, or Islas Pitiusas in Spanish, because of the abundance of pines that cover their landscapes.
Ibiza has its own airport, located on the island. It is served by many major and budget airlines, such as Easy jet, British Airways, Spainair, and Ryanair, to name a few. You can also reach the island by boat from Denia, Alicante in the summer, Barcelona, Valencia, or Palma.
While the beach and party scene are awesome and world renowned, take some time to explore some of the traditional countryside of this beautiful island that few tourists see.
Large portions of the island are registered as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Some of its most notable sites include "God's Finger" in the Benirràs Bay, Es Vedra; the mystical island rock off Ibiza's west coast, the hidden cove Atlantis, Passeig de ses Fonts in San Antonio, or the famous hippy markets in Es Canar or Las Dalias.
Ibiza is also a hot spot for weddings. The combination of cheap flights from the UK and its large english speaking local population makes Ibiza a very attractive location for alternative weddings. The Island has several companies catering to this, ready to help organize and photograph your dream island union.
Before you hit the party scene, treat yourself to some of the island's local spacialities. Ensaimada is a sort of flat soft pastry coil, it is similar to a Danish pastry but a bit more like a doughnut. Flao is a sweet cheese and mint dessert much like a flan. Flao can be hard to find, it is usually only in the fine dining spots or 5 star resorts, but you can find ensaimada in most pastelerias and bars.
Touted as the best pizza on the island, visit El Pirata in Ibiza Town. For the best grilled meats, seafood, and other local specialities La Brasa comes highly recommended. In the town of San Antonio, tucked behind the sunset strip is The Curry Club; a hidden treasure featuring excellent dishes and a beautiful interior.
Lastly, no trip to any island is complete without at least a little time spent on the beach (or a whole lot). During the day most tourists soak up the rays and relax in the sand before heading out at night to enjoy Ibiza's notorious party scene. The bars and clubs don't pick up until the evening, between 7 p.m. and midnight.
