More than 50 expansive sandy beaches, gleaming sea, the adorable Spanish culture, and party, party, party! All these make the sultry Spanish island of Ibiza one round-the-clock party zone, and the "entertainment island of the world". However, fondly called the 'White Isle', there is more to Ibiza than parties and flamboyant nightlife - it has charming traditional streets of the Old Town, history, and hidden caves. All these make Ibiza weekend quite a rage with tourists.
When you leave for a weekend to Ibiza, you must already know that you are in for the time of your life. Other than the sun-kissed beaches and clubs, you can check out the following:
Ibiza Town (Eivissa for the locals): This island capital has the historical hub and the medieval walled-city Dalt Vila dating back to the 500 BC and overlooking the rocky cliffs. It is replete with art galleries, bars (Pacha and El Divino being the best ones), restaurants, and beaches like:
Playa d'en Bossa
Las SalinasSan Antonio is also a major tourist place in Ibiza. It does not have as many cultural options as Ibiza Town, but prides in:
Cala d'Hort - a work of magic, this beach has a natural rock ascending 391 meters out of the sea. Circles of light emanate from the sea reaching up to 50 meters in diameter. This happens because of a strong magnetic force in the rock.
Port Des Torrent
Cala VadellaSa Penya: The arched gateway Portal de ses Taules leads you to the old fisherman's quarter of Sa Penya. It has quaint shops, pubs and balconied houses and transforms into a party hubbub by night.
Formentera is the traditional rugged village that has sandy beaches and caves. Ses Illetes is the beach you must go to.
