A plethora of beautiful beaches and an envious club culture are just some of the elements that make Ibiza the top summer party destination in the Mediterranean. Watching the sunset from Sant Antoni de Portmany’s strip of cafes is a unique experience, uniting the 6 million tourists that visit this beautiful Balearic island year-round, as is partying all night long, until the eartly hours of the morning, in the massive clubs that attract the world’s top DJs. However, step beyond the club culture and there is a lot more to discover. The town of Ibiza is an enchanting destination on its own, featuring a whitewashed old quarter, topped by an imposing cathedral and a hilltop settlement –Dalt Vila- encircled by colossal protective walls, that reach over 25 metres in height and include seven bastions. Designed and constructed to protect the island’s population against the pirates, these walls are floodlit at night, providing guests the opportunity to enjoy sweeping views of the Port Area and the island of Formentera in the south. Placa des Parc is a pretty, bohemian part of the town, where visitors can explore the relaxed side of Ibiza and observe the rhythm of the locals’ daily life. Visitors should not neglect to visit the Archaelogical Museum, as well as the Museum of Modern Art, the Cathedral, which sits close to the highest ground in Dalt Vila, and the Madina Yabisa La Curia, a small display that replicated the medieval Arab city of Madina Yabisa (Ibiza Town), prior to the island’s fall to Catalan forces in 1235. The bays of Figueretes are the nearest beaches to the capital, offering the opportunity to swim and dive in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, as well as to walk along the promenade and enjoy the local cuisine in one of the many seaside restaurants. Additionally, Cala Conta, Cala Mastella, Cala Nova, Cala Pada and Cala Llonga are just some of the beautiful sandy beaches that surround the island Ibiza, calling on its visitors to explore and enjoy its diverse andscapes.
