Ibiza is, without doubt, the quintessential Mediterranean island. It has everything – beautiful beaches, pretty little villages, an attractive island capital, plenty to see and do and some great nightspots. And being just 25 miles from end to end, it’s very easy to get around. To the north, in Puerto San Miguel and Portinatx, you’ll find lovely little sandy coves and hills covered with blankets of wild flowers whilst, to the west, stunning Cala Tarida is picture postcard perfect. Look out for what locals call a ‘chiringuito’. These little bars are to be found even on the quietest beach and are great for tapas, seafood and a cold drink – perfect on a hot summer’s day! The capital, Ibiza Town, whose old quarter is on UNESCO’s world heritage site list, is an attractive mix of the old and new – on the one hand narrow, cobbled streets, medieval stone walls and an ancient fortress; on the other, and close to the waterfront, a wide selection of restaurants, bars, shops, and market stalls.
