Even though Ibiza is a small island, there is so much to discover. See hidden, idyllic bays, blooming fields, sleepy villages, prehistoric cities and very vivid, colorful hippie markets, which you absolutely have to see. Also the famous and fascinating salt fields are a must-see.
The romantic old city was announced a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Ibiza is one of the most beautiful Mediterranean islands. Get enchanted by the flair of the ne white villages in the centre of the island. Every village has its own centuries-old church that can be accessed by contorted lanes and streets. Also don't forget to enjoy a tasty, homemade and affordable lunch at one of the many comfortable bars and restaurants.
It's typical in Spain that life really awakes at sunset. In the old dockland below the city wall, young and old folk meets in the numerous bars for one or another glass of wine with Tapas. The motto is "seeing and beeing seen". You definitely have to experience the nightlife of Ibiza - it is unique in all Europe! Night clubs are not made only for partying, but kinds of playgrounds for adults who party.
Popular excursions in Ibiza lead to the hippie markets. The visit is a must for everyone visiting the island. There you can find an enormous choice of products on all the booths, for example the exotic Pareos - wraparound garments that can be worn as dress or skirt. Furthermore you find Asian clothes, handmade shoes, self-designed fashion and a huge variety of silver- and fashion jewellery as well as pictures and other artworks by different artists. The vendors and indigenous visitors are also an own kind of attraction. Mostly it's hippies of the younger and newer generation, but also the older hippies love to meet at the markets.
The famous salt fields Las Salinas are one of the most unique and pretty landscapes of the island. Today as well as more than 2,000 years ago, they were used for farming salt. The sea salt is also a perfect souvenir for friends and acquaintances. When the heat starts, the water in the salt fields vaporises and a glittering, white layer of pure sea salt remains. These layers are piled up to high mountains of salt during the summer. Seeing the salt fields at sunset is a fascinating picture worth capturing. The many salt fields shimmer in the most beautiful colours. At the end of the salt fields, you can see the paradisial beach of Las Salines.
Another interesting sight is the dripstone cave named Can Marça. Only the way there is worth an excursion: Along the steep cliffs you can walk down on the stairs to the entrance of the dripstone cave. On the way there you'll have an incredible panoramic view on the coast and the clear sea. The way continues along the tracks that were left by the smugglers, who used to use the cave for their business. Many times you pass by underground lakes, shimmering darkly. Also a waterfall was revived with fitting music and a nice lighting show. This tour is available all the year and starts in Puerto de San Miguel.
Bus tours or city tours are a good thing to get to know your vacation spot better: Discover white villages in the middle of the island that were left untouched by tourism. Or you take a rental car or rent a bike to drive through the blossoming fields and aromatic pine forest. Whenever you're getting tired, stop for a swim on one of the many small bays.
