About the Location:

Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, 79 kilometres off the coast of the city of Valencia, in eastern Spain.

Also known as the "White Island" or "Magic Island", Ibiza is part of the Balearic archipelago and forms the "Pitiusas", together with its little sister island of "Formentera" - known as "the last paradise of the Mediterranean" and only a 20 min. crossing from Ibiiza.

Nature is without doubt the main attraction of the island. With an extension of 220 sq. mi. and 130 miles of coastline of cristal clear waters which can be enjoyed all year round thanks to their mild temperature and 2.948 hours of sunshine per year. Ibiza's 11 miles of sandy beaches offer multitudes of opportunities and the perfect setting to enjoy the sea, together with a wide range of services and different kind of atmospheres.

From magic places such as Cala d'Hort cove, with the dramatic backdrop of Es Vedra rock, to the beaches of Playa Compte, Cala Bassa and solitary spots such as Pou des Lleó or the large, familiar and trendy beach of Playa d'en Bossa, there is a spot for everybody.

Most of them offer a wide range of water activities and their usualy quiet waters are perfect for the practice of SUP, while on rougher days Es Torrent, Cala Nova or Aguas Blancas have good waves and are reknown surf spots.

The beaches of Es Cavallet and Ses Salines are within the natural park of "Las Salinas-Formentera" with dunes and salt marshes of great ecological value. Ibiza's beaches are famous for the clearness and emerald colour of their waters, due to the prairies of Posidonia seaweed, protected and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The island ecological and natural assets are enhanced by the richness of its archeological and historical tresaures, such as the Phoenician site of Sa Caleta and medieval defensive towers dotting the coast.

Ibiza's most important cultural treasure is "Dalt Villa", the old fortified town, topped by its cathedral and its maze of narrow streets surrounded by walls dating back from the Renaissance, listed as a UNESCO Wolrd Heritage Site. Along this treasure, there are many places of cultural interest disseminated around the island such as the sacred mounts of Sta. Eulalia and St. Miguel, with their fortified churches, the defensive towers along the coast, the salt marshed dating back to the Phoenicians or the wells and reservoirs of Arab origins.

Along its history, Ibiza has mingled with various civilisations: Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs, all were attracted by its natural beauty, fertile soil, salt marshes and strategic location. After the christian "Reconquista", a series of watch towers were buuilt along the coast as watchings point to spot the moorish pirates who used to abound in these waters. Once the invaders spotted, the islanders were alerted and tooked refuge in these towers, fortified churches and walled towns. Most of these are still perfectly conservated and can be visited, along with the remains of ancients civilisations at the Arqueologic & Ethnologic Museum.

Since the XX Century, Ibiza has been an idyllic refuge for artists, musicians and intellectuals from across the world, turning this small island into a very cosmopolitan place.  During the 60s, Ibiza became one of the focal points of the Hippy movement, giving shelter to many of its leaders and followers who were attracted by the pastoral beauty and tranquility of the island.

Since then, Ibiza has become the symbol of alternative entertainment and its night life famous worldwide, with the best DJ's and discotheques, the Mecca of clubbers from all over the world. Yet the island is still a haven of tranquility, with a bohemian atmosphere and some of the best restaurants in the country.
