The all-night party, the boho-chic hippie chick, the alluring babe on the beach – Ibiza is all this and more to tourists who have a liking for the party-loving sibling of the Balearics. The finest of Europe's DJs (David Guetta, Luciano, Sven Väth et al) makes the island a hallowed destination for clubbers.
It is an island in the Mediterranean Sea off the east shore of Spain. It is 150 kilometres (93 miles) from the metropolis of Valencia, and it is the third biggest of the Balearic Islands.
Ibiza's humble inhabitants of 132,637 is consumed entirely by the six-million-odd travellers that come down on it every year. But there's more to this bronzed, beach-covered, pine-dressed island than meets the dim eye. Get off the usual path for a period in a countryside hotel, a mountaintop village or on a private north-shore bay to find Ibiza's exceptionally tranquil part. Or wander the embankments of Ibiza City's Unesco-recorded Dalt Vila to plunge yourself in the island's wealthy history.
Though firstly known for its celebration scene, huge parts of the island are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and consequently safeguarded from the growth and business development of the leading towns. An obvious example comprises of "God's Finger" in the Benirràs Bay and also some of the more customary Ibizan cultural locations like the debris of the initial Phoenician colony at Sa Caleta.
