Ibiza Coronavirus Covid-19 Holidays 2020 to Spain

Firstly established as one of Spain’s major travel destination by the hippies during the 60s, the island of Ibiza has gone a long way since then. Birthplace of rave music, it today hosts some of Spain’s, and maybe the world’s, most well-known night clubs, where famous DJs play their music until dawn.

However, Ibiza is much more than a party island. In recent years local authorities are running campaigns to promote the island’s natural and cultural beauty, in order to attract other kinds of travellers as well. Turquoise waters, archaeological sites and Ibiza Town’s medieval quarter are enough to lure visitors who are not interested in the island’s notorious nightlife.

Getting around

Relatively frequent bus routes, from 4 different companies, cover most parts of the island. For short distances you can hire a taxi. For more flexibility consider renting a car; keep in mind that local companies usually come a little cheaper than major international rental offices. Walking is the best way to explore Ibiza Town, while the nearest beach is a 10-minute stroll away.

Things to see and do in Ibiza

Begin with exploring picturesque Dalt Vila, the old quarter of Ibiza Town. Walk down scenic cobblestone streets to discover atmospheric medieval buildings. You can enter Dalt Vila by to main gates, Portal de Ses Taules and Portal Nou.

Once within the city walls, head for Cathedral de Santa Maria, a 14th-century Gothic church which houses Museu Diocesa. The museum hosts a fine collection of religious artworks. Close to the cathedral, stands Ibiza’s Archaeological Museum. Occupying several buildings, including Salvador Chapel and the old university, the museum exhibits artefacts from Ibiza’s Phoenician and Carthaginian past.

Another part of the museum is located outside Ibiza Town and within the grounds of the archaeological site of Puig des Molins Necropolis. Dating back to 7th century BC, this burial ground was first established by the Phoenicians. Featuring more than 3,000 ancient tombs, the site has filled this part of the museum with hundreds of burial relics, including ceramic figurines and amulets.

Ibiza has become famous for its lively and colourful markets, most of which operate during summer time. Run every Wednesday, the Hippy Market at Es Cana is the largest and most well-known out of Ibiza’s many markets. Hundreds of stalls offer all kinds of crafts, including handmade jewellery and vintage clothing. If interested in second hand items, don’t miss the Car Boot Market at the village of San Jordi. Held on Saturdays, it features anything from second hand books to vintage accessories, while street musicians live up the area with their tunes. If your day schedule is too busy, consider Las Dalias Night Market in San Carlos. Once again, handmade clothing and jewellery are sold under the jingles of live music shows.

Head to the northern part of the island, where you can explore the fascinating Can Marca Caves. Featuring different levels, the caves house stunning clusters of stalactites and stalagmites, along with hidden waterfalls and water channels. On Ibiza’s southern tip, you will find Las Salinas, a huge area of salt fields, which have been in use for thousands of years. Come here before dusk to enjoy some of the island’s most gorgeous sunset views.

Of course we can’t overlook Ibiza’s thriving night scene. Even if you don’t plan on partying wildly each and every night, it is definitely worth to experience Ibiza’s dazzling nightlife at least once. Some of the most well-known clubs around the island include Amnesia near San Rafael, DC10 by the airport, El Paradis in San Antonio and Privilege which is located close to Amnesia.
