Ibiza

Spain

The island of Ibiza may conjure up images of nightclubs, DJs and hoppin' pool parties, but it's so much more that. Especially if you visit outside its peak summer season, you'll discover a beautiful paradise with scenic walking trails, a historic old town, amazing beaches and a thriving art scene - as well as quite a few restaurants to write home about!

Where is Ibiza?

Ibiza is a Balearic island located within an archipelago in the Mediterranean, making it super easy to travel to from the UK and mainland Europe.

There are plenty of cheap direct flights that go from UK cities including London, Edinburgh and  Manchester - just remember book early or try to snag cheap last-minute deals.

Reasons to visit Ibiza

As we mentioned before, there's no shortage of delightful beaches in Ibiza, from secluded coves to pristine shores lined with restaurants and other amenities. No matter where you go, the azure waters and sandy coast are worthy of a postcard.

The island also offers plenty of opportunities for entertainment, retail therapy, and family-friendly activities.

If you're craving a bit of history, take a walk along the 16th-century ramparts in Dalt Vila, aka Ibiza Old Town. These walls, originally built to keep out the Turks, are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
