‘World-class’ is a phrase strongly associated with Ibiza Town, particularly in reference to its legendary club scene. However, there’s much more to this part of Ibiza than non-stop parties and banging tunes. By day, Ibiza Town reveals itself in all its glory; a surprising mix of sleek, chic buildings and rustic architecture. You can check out the island’s cultural heritage with a visit to one of the many museums and art galleries, or dip into its fascinating past with a trip to the nearby castle or explore the imposing cathedral.
Shopping is almost a national pastime in Ibiza, and Ibiza Town has plenty of shops where you can spend your holiday Euros. Head to the New Town and you’ll find 21st century shops glittering around squares peppered with outstanding restaurants. In the Old Town, things become far more traditional, with cobbled streets housing quirky boutiques and low-lit bars. The Old Town also acts as host to the region’s famous Hippy Market, which transforms the streets into a colourful carnival of sights, sounds, smells, and bargains!
Without doubt, the main reason people come to Ibiza Town is for the nightlife. With iconic clubs and lively bars, the only phrase that seems appropriate is ‘world-class’.
Whether you’re a clubber, a history buff, a shopper or a foodie, Ibiza Town has something for everyone. By day, you can dip a toe into its rich past with a stroll around the oldest part of town, Dalt Vila. Wander through its ancient streets to discover whitewashed buildings, churches and the old city walls. If you want to sample the local cuisine, stop at a restaurant for a traditional Catalan dish, such as the local favourite, ‘guisat de peix’, fish in a creamy potato stew. For one-off souvenirs, check out the craft stalls of Sa Penya, or immerse yourself in the weekly Hippy Market.
By night, the sounds of club music fill the air. During the summer season, every night is a party in Ibiza Town, when clubbers flock to superclubs like Pacha and Space.
Expect glorious highs of 30 (°C) in the summer and pleasantly warm temperatures throughout the rest of the year.
Flights to Ibiza Town land at Ibiza Airport (IBZ), which is about 7km from the resort.
