Ibiza is famous for its amusement island, nightclubs and kilometers of beaches. In fact, there are other aspects of Ibiza, who are often not seen from the young people who have lost between the crowd of the laity clubs. Randomly, in 1999, UNESCO declared the island of Bianca (Isla Bianca) World Heritage Site, because many of its places have an extraordinary cultural and natural richness: the phenicium ruins in Caleta, the fortified city of Dalt Vila, The salted lake of salts at the nature reserve and the Punic Mausoleum in Puig des Molins.
Nine out of ten visits to the island started in the historic center of Eivissa, where local residents called Ibiza, the capital of Catalonia, which also helped the island. Dalt Vila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999, is a perfect summary of the double soul of which we talked about at the beginning. In reality it is a large open-air museum, however, in summer, visitors are around in the maze of alleys of the area, invading it. Obviously there is no lack of bars, restaurants and shops, just like street artists and uncommon characters strange dresses, in fact, they are everywhere in Ibiza.
2-Port of Eivissa
After Dalt Vila, it is the turn of the port area, another place where history and fun merge. The historic ones are the Marina and Sa Penya, which are ancient fishing villages and today I am a favorite destination from tourists, who usually spend an evening in the area, waiting for the entry of the disco (the famous disco “Pacha”). Even with a long history there are two historical monuments dedicated to sailors, which made Ibiza a great century. The monument we talk about is Los Corsarios, the other takes its name from People de la Mar. The first is behind Estacio Marittima, where there are cruise ships and ferries from Barcelona, Valencia or the nearby Formentera. The second one is located at the intersection of the Avinguda de Santa Eularia des Riu, one of the main arteries of the island. Don’t forget the two Terminals of Eivissa Nova and Marina Botafoc: many VIPs of the sports and entertainment industry often visit Ibiza in summer and usually stop at terminals.
Those who come to Ibiza almost always spend a day of vacation in the nearby Formentera. Sant Antoni and Eivissa have frequent contacts and short distances. Obviously, although Formentera is relatively small and has a much smaller population (about 11,000 inhabitants), although it is only because it has a large number of beaches, it will not walk in one day. The northern beaches are the most famous for tourism of the Escadil peninsula: first illetes, but also a visit also Llevant, Es Cavall and Espalmador (S’Espalmador in Catalonia). The latter is a small island (about 3 kilometers long and wide 1), 150 meters from the Estu peninsula I fall, but it is forbidden to bathe due to the strong currents. Therefore, once arrived in Formentera, you need to take a daily boat shuttle from the port of La Salina to Espalmador.
What do you want to do in San Antoni: enjoy a wonderful bathroom or live its worldly life?
Sant Antoni is a natural bay, just 20 minutes from the city of Ibiza, with very convenient means of transport to the island.Here not only can you immerse yourself in the transparent water, but often also go to trendy discos. Sant Antoni is a place full of beaches and small bays, located in the most unimaginable place, between steep rocks or pine forests, where water is so calm and clear that diving are popular. June and September are the months when the bay is very frequented by couples and families for relaxation and tranquility, while in August Italian, German, Dutch and English boys pour into the island to experience discos and bars.
5-Sant Josep of Sa Talaia
The city of Sant Josep of Sa Talaia is located in the southern part of Ibiza and is full of coves and beaches, which satisfy all tastes:
A small and private hidden cable, nourished by the transparent and crystalline seas of Cala Lower, Cala Comte and Cala Vedella, but with wide sand, surrounded by a thick vegetation and pine themes. If you have always wanted to go to the sea in full freedom, San Josep is the ideal place for you: many coves are completely dedicated to nudists. The hinterland of this delightful village will not disappoint you, with the countryside of figs, pines and scattered carobs for the unique white houses of the island. Do not miss the Fenicio village of Sa Caleta and the village of Residenza Bunic-Roman of Ses Païses of Cala d’Hort.
6-Sant Joan de Labritja
The village of Sant Joan de Labritja, north of Ibiza, has a natural area composed of beaches and cliffs, is well maintained and is therefore particularly appreciated by tourists.
The main tourist destinations of San Joan are the port of San Miquel, the port of Cala di Portinatx and the Cala di San Vicente. If you are a romantic and you want to stay away from noisy tourists, you must visit Xarraca, Benirrás, Den Serra, S’illot and Moltons Bay. Not only in the sea in Sant Joan, because in the city there are many unique churches built according to the typical architecture of the island.
