Explore the Balearic island of Ibiza
It's known as Europe’s capital of hedonism, but there’s more to the island of Ibiza than just clubbing. Ibiza also retains many reminders of its long history, some of which have earned the island a UNESCO heritage listing.
Undoubtedly, the bars and clubs of Ibiza Town – and recently Playa d’en Bossa – have attracted partygoers for decades. Much of Ibiza, however, is still lush forest – discreet and rugged. Northern beaches, such as the secluded coves in San Juan, still possess the attractive qualities that brought hippies flocking to the island in the 1960s. Quiet spots provide escapism in the busy summer months, with the former quarry of Atlantis and the hidden beaches near Cala d'Hort offering a slower pace. Old Ibiza hands come for the island’s warm spring and autumn, where beaches, bars and restaurants are quieter and you’re more likely to be rubbing shoulders with the locals rather than celebrities.
