Famed sunsets and Boho glamUnderstandably renowned for its nightlife, look beyond this and you can discover a islands worth of surprise
The glamorous but laid-back island of Ibiza is a vision of paradise. With spectacular scenery, world-class beaches, some of Europe’s best nightlife and a good dose of culture, this Balearic haven has something to tempt every traveller.
Europe’s clubbing capital
Undeniably, Ibiza is most famous for its epic party scene. No matter what time of day it is, there’s always fun and festivity to be found, with day parties at chic beach bars and huge nightclubs open until sunrise, it’s no surprise that clubbers are drawn here from around the globe. Find yourself sipping delicious cocktails on the beach at sunset, before heading to one of the island’s colossal clubs to enjoy a set from a renowned DJ.
Behind the stereotype
If all-night revelry isn’t your thing, Ibiza’s magnificent landscapes offer a more relaxing holiday itinerary. Parc naturel de Ses Salines is a huge rural expanse of beaches, pine forests, cliffs and salt pans, which is home to hundreds of local and migratory birds, including stunningly pink flamingos. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ibiza’s party destinations, beautifully tranquil beaches and coves are waiting to be discovered. Illetes and Llevant on the Trucador Peninsula are fine examples, with pearly white sand and glittering turquoise water.
For just a flavour of Ibiza’s nightlife, visit Platja de ses Salines – a sweeping sandy beach backed by dunes and pine trees, where you can chill out at traditional beach bars called ‘chiringuitos’, buzzing with bronzed, relaxed revelers.
The most idyllic spots can be found on the island’s north coast, where a variety of beaches, bays and coves provide exquisite, off-the-beaten-track hangouts. Secluded and sometimes tricky to find, these hidden gems are quiet and well worth the effort. From here, it’s hard to believe that the high-energy party scene is only a stone’s throw away.
The spiky silhouette of the islet of Es Vedrà is also a must-see, particularly at sunset when the backdrop is infinite shades of pink and orange. Like a mini volcano, Es Vedrà juts out of the sea off the southwest coast, and is the subject of many local legends involving everything from sirens to UFOs. Opposite, Sa Pedrera, a hidden cove given the name ‘Atlantis’, features strangely perfect geometric rocks and iridescent waters. A visit to this area is truly magical, and visitors can get even closer by diving or snorkelling to spot plenty of interesting animal and plant life.
History and culture
In Ibiza Town, visitors can soak up the mystical and dramatic Dalt Vila, a walled hilltop fortification featuring a mosaic of fascinating architecture. Strolling the meandering cobbled streets, peppered with mansions, will eventually lead you to the imposing cathedral at the very highest point, which is visible from miles around.
The port area of the town is also worth a visit, where atmospheric lanes of old fishermen’s houses meet energetic cafes and bars overlooking yachts in the marina. The quiet whitewashed villages of inland Ibiza are another world, festooned with ancient churches and local markets.

We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
