Flights to Ibiza

Ibiza; synonymous with white beaches, parties and the infamous Ministry of Sound. However there’s far more to see on this picturesque Spanish island, you just have to wander round Ibiza town to appreciate the white washed walls and and blue skies of the White Isle.

Ibiza is only 572 square kilometres, and it makes up part of the Pitiusas Islands. These islands are known as the pine islands to the Greeks, thanks to the pine trees you can find in the north east of this island. However, you’ll struggle to reach these places without your own method of transport. The best way to see Ibiza is by car, or go old school and rent out a scooter. This way you can travel round the old roads, venture into villages and get to see the calm side of Ibiza.

However, if you’re here for the more traditional pastimes associated with this Spanish island stick to Ibiza Town, Playa d’en Bossa and San Antonio for world famous DJs and nights that carry onto the next morning. Es Paradis, Space and Pacha are some of the most well known clubs you can find in the area. Naturally, you’ll have to fit in a sunset trip to Café Del Mar too.

People often mistake Ibiza for an island that’s sole purpose is clubbing; there are actually a few activities reserved for the culture vultures. Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands, and it’s a 20 minute ferry ride from Ibiza. You can also take a trip to Cala D’Hort to see the famous rock of El Vedra, or check out the hippy markets in Es Cana.

What you need to know

Ibiza Airport is located 7km west of Ibiza Town, and it services both Ibiza and Formentera. There are regular buses to the Town, and more around the island, but many resorts operate private transfers.

Laws

Although it seems like a crazy, hedonistic heaven, the drinking age is still 18 and you can be fined for being drunk and disorderly. Possession of drugs isn’t actually an offence, but you can be fined and imprisoned on being found with them in public. You’ll have to use your common sense with that one.

Best time to visit

The island comes alive with DJs and sun seeking tourists from May to September, so check out when your favourite DJ is on before you go. August is a great time to go – not only for Radio 1’s Big Weekend, but on August 15th there’s a Spanish celebration for Virgin Saint of Paloma. There’s usually a big firework display, not only here but in all of Spain, and everyone’s out to party!
