The picturesque capital of this pulsating Balearic Island has much more to offer visitors than 24-hour parties. While Ibiza Town holidays have garnered a reputation for hedonism over the decades, the south-coast capital – known locally as Eivissa – is also a hub of art, culture and style.
Holidays to Ibiza Town involve walking the town’s cobbled streets, which are lined with pretty houses, boutiques, cafés and restaurants, while its historic centre is now a Unesco World Heritage Site, encircled by medieval walls. Enter the old town via the Portal de ses Taules gate and climb to the 16th-century fortress for unparalleled views over the Roman acropolis and turquoise Mediterranean Sea. In the evening, opt for a laid-back drink at one of the intimate cafés on the Plaza del Parque or head to the glitzy new marina for some of the best people watching on the island.
View some modern art
The Museu d'Art Contemporani in the old town houses an impressive collection of modern art while also paying tribute to Ibiza’s own flourishing artistic scene.
Hit the town
Head to the marina for a taste of the town’s hedonistic nightlife. Continue the party at Pacha nightclub and keep going into the next morning.
Shop till you drop
You’ll find high-end boutiques at the port and a range of larger chains around the boulevard of Avenida Bartolome Rosello and at Vara de Rey.
