An awesome island : Ibiza

An awesome island : Ibiza

Do you want to enjoy a blue sky on a perfect beach ? Ibiza is a perfect place to relax. What can you do in Ibiza? Talamanca Beach: If you’re based in Ibiza Town and fancy a quieter day at the beach then couple of minutes up from the marina is another of the island’s largest beaches. Here there’s a wide sweep of snow-white sand backed by low-density development. The scenery around Talamanca is made up of small, pine-cloaked hills and the small holiday community of Cap Martinet. Right on the beach are great little places to eat, serving Balearic culinary favourites like bullit de peix or more cosmopolitan options. The beach is tucked deep between two headlands so the waters are gentle and child-friendly.

The port city known as Ibiza Town is the largest and pretiest destination on the island. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Ibiza Town boasts a walled fortress as well as cobblestone streets. Locals call the city Eivissa. Ibiza Town is divided into sections: Dalt Vila and Eixample. Perched above the water, Dalt Vila, or Old Town, is the historic area filled with world-class restaurants and a great selection of bars. Below, you’ll find Eixample, or Extension, where most of the newer buildings can be found. While visiting, be sure to check out the Cathedral called Our Lady of the Snows, which offers perhaps the best views in the entire town.

Casita Verde is the headquarters of an ongoing sustainable living and eco-education project. Set in a restored finca, and mainly run by volunteers, they have open days every Sunday throughout the year when you can tour the farm, see buildings made from recycled materials, enjoy a home-cooked vegetarian lunch, as well as participate in workshops, listen to live music and enjoy massages and other therapies.

While dancing in a club all night is great exercise, it might be worth it to stretch your legs and get some fresh air. You can hike to the tallest point in Ibiza, called Sa Talaia, located in Sant Josep. It’s an easy, uphill, 2.4 km walk. Start the hike by walking up a street called Sa Talaia, until it forms into a path with vegetation on each side. Keep your eyes peeled for an exotic Jineta (a ferret/cat-like creature native to Africa and the Balearic islands) that might be relaxing in the trees. Once at the top you’ll get panoramic views of the whole island. Go during sunset if you really want to be blown away. Read more info at Ibiza clubs .
