Ibiza

Ibiza is a pleasant and warm island, where smiles, light, creative inspiration, and centuries-old traditions coexist and where you also feel the weight of history behind the walls of Dalt Villa, in the defense towers and each of its whitewashed churches.

The city

The artists came first, keen to capture Ibiza on canvas. Next, the hippies turned up, tuned in and dropped out. Later still, the dance crowd came, replacing peace and love with progressive house music. But, now it seems Ibiza’s gone all grown up on us. For certain, any clubber worth their glowsticks will assure you that San Antonio and Ibiza Town still rule the night. In terms of where to head, places like Puerto San Miguel and Portinatx have got the picture postcard factor - all green slopes and turquoise shallows. They are pretty quiet, too. A few livelier bars are dotted around the place but on the whole the vibe here is as sleepy as a Spanish siesta. Smart Santa Eulalia cranks things up a notch, with a restaurant scene as impressive as the beach it overlooks. And next up the scale is Playa d’en Bossa. Clubbers’ paradise, a family favourite - this one treads the tricky holiday tightrope like a pro.

If you want to see what Ibiza’s original hippy markets were like, you’ve got two choices. Borrow Dr Who’s Tardis or hit Es Cana on a Wednesday. With the latter the most feasible, you’ll be able to swing back to the Sixties without the aid of a magical phone booth. This most stubborn of markets refuses to move with the times – pretty much everything on sale is the same as it would have been four decades ago.

Forget New York. Forget London. Forget Rio. This place has the finest nightlife in the world, bar none. Today, Ibiza’s still THE place to hear cutting-edge DJs on the best sound systems around. Space has clubbers from all over the world flocking to join in the madness, especially for the opening and closing parties. The sunset terrace is famous for day-long hedonism – that and the fact it’s under the airport flight path. Even with 747s a few metres above, the booming sound of the PA still manages to drown out the roar of a jet engine. Just as impressive is the Spanish institution, Pacha. With tonnes of different zones and bars, it’s a real mish-mash of cultures and sounds. Although it has a huge capacity for over 3,000 clubbers, it somehow manages to keep a cosy feel. Of course, you can’t talk about nightlife without mentioning the infamous Privilege, the world’s biggest club.
