Spain’s most attractive island getaway
Ibiza is one of the hottest travel destinations in Europe. The Spanish island attracts a collection of tourists from Europe’s elite jet set movers and shakers to backpackers looking for a good time.
In 2017, over 3.2 million travelers descended on Ibiza. Many of the tourists who head to the island’s sunny shores come from the United Kingdom. Ibiza offers them a refuge from the grey skies that typically make their home over the UK.
Ibiza may be known to many for its clubs and all-night parties in the street. But the Balearic Island has a luxurious side that is unequalled by its Spanish island neighbors.
Where to stay?
Move inland away from Ibiza’s coast and gorgeous countryside can be seen for miles. Ca Na Xica is a small boutique style hotel that provides gorgeous views of Ibiza’s countryside. Everything at Ca Na Xica is subtle and understated. The best part about the hotel is the terrace that comes with each premier suite. Sit out and experience a laidback Ibiza evening while sipping delicious Spanish wine.
La Torre delCanonigo is situated in the heart of Ibiza Old Town. Visitors will navigate the winding cobble stone streets to reach the hotel. The hotel has a medieval vibe courtesy of the more than 1,000-year-old defensive wall the venue was built around. Despite the old feel and charm, the hotel beams with modern amenities. La Torre delCanonigo’s pool and landscaped area around it are gorgeous. It overlooks the city and offers a position to see perfect sunsets over Ibiza.
What to do for a unique Ibiza experience?
Ibiza’s most popular pastime is lounging on the sun-soaked beaches. A trip to the shore allows travelers to work on their Spanish tans and to relax away the day. The great thing about Ibiza beaches is there is one for nearly every type of person or activity. There are beaches perfect for snorkeling, swimming, dining and just about any activity available. Calad’Hort is the best beach destination for any traveler looking for an iconic Ibiza backdrop. EsVedra is located just off the shore. The magical rock ascends from the depths of the Mediterranean Sea and towards the heavens.
Want to get off the beach and onto the water? Chartering a boat or yacht is a popular activity while staying on Ibiza. Some travelers bring their own boats, but others charter one for an unforgettable experience at sea. There are different types of boats available and each provides its own fun. Why not take some friends out on a luxury charter boat for a party at sea?
Ibiza isn’t just about beaches and watersports. Inland there is much to see and do. One of the most popular activities is to hit the links for a round of golf. The golf courses on Ibiza provide players with dramatic landscapes. Mountains overlook greens and Mediterranean Sea views distract every swing of the golf club. The courses on Ibiza are stunning and so is the golf experience.
Spain’s Balearic Islands are a popular travel destination. Yet, no Spanish island has the appeal and mystique of Ibiza. It is a glorious destination suitable for anyone looking for a little fun in the sun.
