Holidays to Ibiza may conjure up images of night-long raves and glamorous daytime parties, but there’s a lot more to the White Isle than clubs and cocktails. From stunning beaches and UNESCO World Heritage Sites to mythical islands and incredible diving spots, Ibiza has many secrets lying in wait for its visitors. These Ibiza facts might give you a better idea of the island’s true nature – rooted in so much more than dance music and drinks.
Cala Comte Beach
Nestled into the south west of Ibiza is the stunning Cala Comte Beach. Loved by locals and visitors alike, it’s said to be the best beach on the entire island – and when you take a look at its gorgeous surroundings, you’ll see why. It’s easy to get to from San Antonio, and during the summer you can catch a bus or a ferry straight here. The half-mile-long strip of sand is a deep golden colour, with gentle electric blue waves lapping up against it. The rocky coast behind the beach provides a majestic backdrop, while the sand dunes look soft and welcoming. It’s one of the best places to watch the sunrise and sunset, and the surrounding beach bars on the rocks fill up during the summer evenings, with everyone striving for the best views over the water.
Ibiza’s Old Town is easy to get around on foot – and is the perfect day out after a long night of dancing. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s filled with historic and cultural sights, giving you an in-depth knowledge of the island’s past. It’s a key tourist attraction with many visitors flocking to its charming streets every day. Spend your time wandering around the twisting cobbled streets; head to the top of the hill for brilliant views over the town; then enjoy tapas and local wine after you’ve finished exploring.
For another beautiful stretch of sand, head to the north of Ibiza where you’ll find Benirrás Beach. To arrive at the coastline, you’ll stroll through pretty hills and valleys before climbing over large rocks to reach the shore. The pretty beach is a mix of sand and pebbles, with epic views over to the rock formation Cap Bernat – which translates to 'the hand of God' to locals. Benirrás Beach is a perfect spot for snorkelling thanks to its rocky seabed. It’s also a popular place for private yachts to moor up to. Despite the gorgeous views and scenic walk, Benirrás’ highlight is sunset. The romantic colours of the sun setting trickle into the clear water, giving all guests a beautiful show. And on Sundays, drummers head to the beach to drum down the sunset. This unique Ibiza tradition has been going on for years and is well worth watching.
Playa d'en Bossa
For those seeking glamour, indulgence and luxury, Playa d’en Bossa is the place to be. With the longest beach in Ibiza, you won’t have any trouble finding a daybed or lounger to soak up the sun and while the days away. If you’ve got more energy than that, you can hire jet skis and paddle-boats too. Playa d’en Bossa has some of the best nightlife on the White Isle. As the sun sets you can enjoy low-tempo music from beachfront DJs while sipping drinks in the chic bars. Then when the real party begins, you’ve got Ushuaia and Space on your doorstep.
Possibly the most intriguing place in Ibiza is the island of Es Vedra, situated just off the western coast. The island is uninhabited but masked in legend and myth – it’s where Odysseus was almost lured from his ship by the sirens in Homer’s Odyssey. A selection of cruises can take you up close to Es Vedra, giving you spectacular views of the gorgeous landscape. The otherworldly place is a prime snorkelling spot and has many different hiking trails to take.
As you've seen, there's so much more to Ibiza than its iconic bars and clubs. This beautiful Balearic island has culture and charm in abundance – if you've never been, what are you waiting for?
