Ibiza is the best known of the Balearic Islands for its festive atmosphere. Every year, it is the summer destination par excellence for many young people who have fun in a whirlwind of fiestas. Couples and families looking for a sunny holiday destination can also find something for them. Here are 10 things to do whilst staying in Ibiza.
In Ibiza, the escape is what people long for. The island has more than 50 beaches that are ideal for swimming and relaxing. Among the most popular beaches of Ibiza are Cala Bassa and Cala Conte. In the middle of the city, the beach of Figueretas enjoys the proximity of the old town of Ibiza.
Among the many hippie markets in Ibiza, the market of Las Dalias is unavoidable. Here, it is a profusion of colours that awaits you: decoration, music, arts, fashion jewellery, clothes.
Schedule: every Saturday from 10am to 8pm, Monday and Tuesday from 7pm in July and August.
It is impossible to spend a stay in Ibiza without taking a walk in its historic centre inscribed on the world heritage of UNESCO. In the streets of Dalt Vila, the upper part of the old town, you will enjoy an invigorating atmosphere. Its ramparts, very well preserved, are accessible via several doors, including the portal of Ses Taules.
Built in the 16th century, the Almudaina Castle has several rooms richly decorated and seems to watch over the coastline from the top of its promontory.
Linked by the Portal Nou, this tunnel, 50 metres long with a height of 3 metres, leads to the park and the square can be discovered in one visit.
Built in the 12th century, this church is distinguished by a subtle blend of three styles of architecture, but remains essentially baroque and is to be discovered in the area of Dalt Vila.
To know more about the island, a detour by this museum is a must. It is located on Plaça de la Catedral, in the district of Dalt Vila. The collections tell the story of Ibiza from prehistory to the Christian reconquest.
