Paradise found. As idyllic as it is hedonistic, Ibiza is an island of extremes – pulsating nightclubs on one hand, breathtaking natural beauty on the other. A Balearic Island located 79km off the coast of Spain, tourists come here to soak up some sun at the beach by day, then watch the sunset at Café Del Mar before dancing ‘til dawn at iconic clubs like Ministry Of Sound, Pacha, Amnesia and Space and finally crashing at their Ibiza Town or Sant Antoni apartment or villa. If your clubbing days are behind you, Ibiza is still well worth a trip, particularly given around half the island remains relatively unspoiled. Take a hike or your bike along coastal trails, get supple at a yoga class, or feast on fresh, locally-caught seafood at one of the island’s many restaurants. Of course, if you’re staying in a fabulous Ibiza villa, that alone can be reason enough to visit.

When to go to Ibiza
Peak tourist season in Ibiza runs from May through to October, while the clubbing season runs from June until the legendary closing parties in September. Many bars, clubs and restaurants close over winter, but it’s a great time to explore the island without the hordes of tourists.
Getting to and around Ibiza
Four million tourists enter Ibiza each year via its only airport, Aeroport d’Eivissa. Located 7km southwest of the capital, you’ll find direct flights here from a host of European cities. Buses from the airport to the island’s centre operate every half hour in peak season. Once you arrive, four bus companies service difference parts of the island, but if you’re really planning to explore, you might want to consider hiring a car or motorcycle.
