You’ll certainly find such things in plentiful supply here.


You don’t have to go far, however, to discover a world apart from DJs and drinks, where history takes precedence and small villages entice you to relax on a peaceful coastline overlooking the glimmering Med.

Arriving at Ibiza Airport 

Your plane will touch down in the busy south-west corner of the island, about four miles (6km) outside of Ibiza Town. This is a compact island; Cala de Sant Vicent, at the opposite corner of the island, is only 40 minutes away by car.

Regular buses provide transfers between the airport and Ibiza Town’s bus station. This is the transport hub for the rest of Ibiza, providing regular services to other towns and villages scattered across the landscape.

If you want a more direct route to your accommodation, taxis and hire cars are both available at Arrivals; it’s best to pre-book car-hire.

Ibiza Airport is also the first stop if you’re heading to neighbouring Formentera. Simply hop on a bus to the town’s ferry harbour and it’s just a 35-minute journey to the smaller island, which is famed for its beaches. Three different ferry companies operate routes across the water, so finding your way there is easy.

Night life

Ibiza can stake a claim to being one of the planet’s foremost nightlife destinations. Within its compact confines, it hosts some of the most famous clubs in the world and welcomes a selection of A-list DJs and celebrity attendees every year, especially during the peak summer season.

Some of the clubs here are household names even on other continents. It’s hard to turn down the opportunity to spend the night somewhere like Pacha, Ushuaïa or Amnesia, all famed for attracting some of the most renowned DJs in the business. Such venues come with a high price-tag but promise unforgettable experiences with lively crowds all seeking a good time. If a particular party doesn’t suit your tastes, you can always visit the alternative rooms with a different set and theme.

Equally, you can avoid these superclubs altogether. Your choice of party isn’t limited to the big names; there are energetic, electric nights all over the island. Nightlife season in Ibiza generally runs from May until September, when the major clubs are open. Come out of season and the smaller clubs will still be buzzing with life, only without the huge summer crowds.
