For Tailor-made Holidays

Known as 'Eivissa' in the Catalan language, Ibiza is an island for bohemians and those who wish to escape monotony to unwind amidst gorgeous natural surroundings. In the Western Mediterranean region, it is among the oldest settlements that have been inhabited since 654 BC when a port was founded in this part of the world by the Phoenicians. The third largest of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza has become popular among millions of tourists in recent times owing to its exciting nightlife and summer clubbing scene. While holidaying on this fascinating island, you'll get to witness its delightful features:

Charming Beaches


Charming Beaches

When it comes to beaches, this Balearic Island won't disappoint you at all! From the nearly abandoned bays for those looking for total serenity to the white-sand coves with ideal environs to bask under the bright sun, it has something for every beach lover. One of the beaches that attract numerous visitors is Cala Saladeta. If you're an adventure enthusiast, you'll also like the climb over a rocky headland that's required to get to this beach. Cala Tarida is a beach mostly sought by tourists enjoying their holidays to Ibiza with their entire family. Other beaches worth exploring are Punta Galera, Benirras, and Cala Conta.

Hippy Markets


Hippy Markets

Besides the gorgeous beaches, Ibiza is also famous for its 'Hippy Markets'. They are truly a must-see for every individual visiting the island and date back to the early 1960s, when many artists, designers, painters, and other creative individuals visited this destination to enjoy its atmosphere and opportunities for complete freedom of expression. Although there are many such markets spread across the island, the Las Salias Hippy Market of San Carlos and Punta Arabi Hippy Market of Es Cana are the biggest among all of them. You can buy some excellent souvenirs in these markets, such as handmade jewellery, artefacts, and clothing.

Carob Trees


Carob Trees

Despite the warm and sunny climate that Ibiza enjoys, you'll get to see greenery on the island throughout the year. Most of the greenery can be attributed to the pine forests, but one must never forget the existence of thousands of carob trees that contribute significantly to the green surroundings. It not only provides food for the farm animals, but also generates quite an amount of revenue from the sale of its seeds. Many families come together towards the end of summer and early autumn to pick carobs. Some organisations on the island are also involved in making food products based on toasted carob syrup, such as cakes, ice-creams, and puddings.

Historic Attractions


Historic Attractions

Ibiza's rich history is often overshadowed by its reputation as a beach destination. The island has always been a busy port town with a cosmopolitan atmosphere throughout the years since it was established. It has also experienced the rule of some powerful kingdoms in the past and you can get a glimpse of the might of those rulers in the form of some historic structures that exist even today. Among them is the Dalt Vila or Upper Town, which has been included in the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Other historical structures worth exploring are the Ibiza Castle and the Ibiza Cathedral.
