Ibiza is the height of exclusivity and luxury and the island is well established as the perfect location to enjoy the best the world has to offer.
From the all-night raver, the boho-cool hippie chick, the sexiest babe on the beach – Ibiza is all this and more to those who have a soft spot for the party-loving sister of the Balearics. The cream of Europe‘s DJs (David Guetta, Luciano, Sven Väth et al) makes the island holy ground for clubbers. And nowhere does sunset chilling like Sant Antoni de Portmany’s strip of mellow cafes.
Ibiza’s modest population of 132,637 is swallowed whole by the six-million-odd tourists that descend on it each year. But there’s more to this sun-kissed, beach-bejewelled, pine-clad island than meets the bleary eye. Step off the beaten track for a spell in a rural hotel, a hilltop hamlet or on a secluded north-coast cove to discover Ibiza’s surprisingly peaceful side. Or roam the ramparts of Ibiza City‘s Unesco-listed Dalt Vila to immerse yourself in the island’s rich heritage.
