If you are going to Ibiza for the first time here is some useful information that hopefully will help you have a better and more joyful trip.
The main holiday season runs from the beginning of May to the end of October. Ibiza is a stunning Mediterranean island, part of the Spanish Balearic Islands, which include Mallorca, Menorca and Formentera. Ibiza is known for its natural beauty and its incredible, world-famous nightlife. Ibiza attracts people from all over the world with visitors from all over Europe, the United States, Russia and Australia for example.
Ibiza has a very mild climate and mostly sunny weather. The island starts to get warmer from May and August is the hottest month, when temperatures go above 30º C. It is also when the island is at its busiest. In winter daytime temperatures go down to only around 15º C. Although Ibiza is a small island there are many beautiful areas, but the prime tourist towns are Playa D’en Bossa, San Antonio, Ibiza Town, San Rafael. These towns also hold many of the islands biggest super-clubs which Ibiza is famed for, so here is a breakdown of each.
Playa D’en Bossa: Located on the East of the island, not far from the airport sits the international resort of Playa D’en Bossa. On the main strip you will find an array of options for bars and restaurants mixed with larger clubs. It also as has the longest beach, which is popular due to its parties and beaut views! Travel to Playa d’en Bossa from San Antonio will take approximately 30 minutes in a taxi (around 30€) or slightly longer on the bus (from 3.50€).
Bossa plays home to a few big super clubs all within close distance to one and other! Located right by the airport you will find the long standing DC-10. Moving more towards the centre of Bossa you will find the Hard Rock Hotel, Ushuaia and Hï (the old SPACE) all next door to each other right by the waterfront. A little further North and you will find Sankeys located a few streets along.
San Antonio: ‘San An’ as it is more commonly referred to, home to the notorious west-end and the stunning sunset strip. The sunset strip with its picturesque backdrop for that perfect squad sunset cover photo to the west-ends offering of cheap drinks deals; think sipping fish bowls with your entourage.
Boasting 5 venues for day or night partying there is a party around every corner pretty much. Benimussa Park (the abandoned zoo) sits just on the outskirts of San An, jump in a taxi (around 10€) and get your animal on. Ocean Beach is more central sitting by the waterfront, our advice is hop in a taxi for a small 8€ and you will be there in minutes. Others clubs such as Eden and Es Paradis are accessible on foot located in the heart of San An by the Ibiza Rocks Bar (yes, the home of those famous chicken pittas) right by the waterfront.
Ibiza Town: North of Playa d’en Bossa you will find the stunning Ibiza Town which has a beautiful historic and upmarket feel. It is also home to the beautiful Marina where you are frequented with bars and restaurants. The Dalt Vila offers views for days and is a cultural dip into Ibiza’s heritage for those opting for something a bit different during the day. Taxi and bus options are also available to travel to Ibiza Town with a taxi taking around 20 minutes (around 25€) or the bus (3.50€).
Ibiza Town has some of the more up-market options of clubbing and dinning but one of the most popular is Pacha! Sitting a few streets back from the stunning harbour, you can either head to a bar before hand for some pre-drinks or straight to the club.
San Rafael: As Ibiza is a clubbing haven and San Rafael is a big player, although it is not a major tourist area it boasts two of biggest clubs. Located opposite each other, Amnesia and Privelege both sit in the middle of the island making them easy enough to reach (about 20€) taxi ride or you can hop on the notorious disco bus (generally 3.50€) .
Get dressed up, throw some glitter on and head over to one of the longest standing clubs on the island and party the night away till dawn! Wise advice.. comfort is key when dancing till the early hours, flats all the way!
