The centre of the island is the lively Eivissa. During the day, you can stroll through the old town, while at night the night life is buzzing. Santa Getrudis de Fruitera with its Bar Costa is an insider tip, it is home to the best "bocadillos" or sandwiches on the island. Anita's Bar in the nearby Sant Carles de Peralta was once a meeting place for hippies, and the village now has a small culture centre and theatre. Sa Cala de Sant Vincent is a relic of bygone days: in 1907, archaeologists discovered numerous pre-Christian terracotta figures in the cave. Ibiza's salt works - Ses Salines - are also unique. They were created by the Phoenicians and are now under a nature conservation order.
If you like active sports, Ibiza has a great deal to offer: of course, water sports are the main priority, but you can also play golf with a view over the sea or discover the island on walks.

Food & Drink
The car is the best way to get around, especially in the mountains of the north. The varied landscape means you have to be fit to get around by bike, and there are virtually no dedicated cycle paths. A boat trip opens up whole new perspectives. Seaside fun is guaranteed at the 50 beautiful sandy beaches and rocky coves around the island. If you like the architecture of the white farmhouses and churches, then head inland to the villages in the interior of the island. The most spectacular sunsets can be seen from the west coast. And you should allow at least half a day for the idyllic streets of Eivissa's incomparable old town.
