RUN AND DISCOVER IBIZA
The first settlers in Ibiza (or ‘Eivissa’, in Catalan) were the Phoenicians, back in 650BC. They named the island Ibossim after their God of music & dancing, Bes. In 1999, Catalan was added to Spanish as the co-official language of Ibiza.
Since the Phoenicians, Ibiza has had seven more sets of rulers, including the Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Moors, Catalans and finally the present-day Spanish Crown. In addition, one could say that Ibiza was ‘invaded’ by the hippies in the ‘60s/’70s and by dance music in the ‘90s, and this all makes for a fascinating island!
Ibiza is most known for being a party island, and the super clubs such as Pacha, Hï, Amnesia, and Privilege. However, Ibiza has so much more to offer than parties! The island is rich in history; it has hectares of stunning, untouched countryside and kms of sandy beaches; and fantastic cuisine from all over the world. It is also incredibly cosmopolitan, as so many people from the rest of Europe and South America choose to make Ibiza their home.
Most Popular Tourist Attractions
Ibiza boasts four UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the stunning old town ‘Dalt Vila’ (meaning ‘high town’ in Catalan); the underwater posidonia meadows; the Phoenician archaeological site in Sa Caleta; and finally the Puig des Molins punic necropolis – the largest and best-preserved necropolis in the world!
Where to Stay
Ibiza has all levels of accommodation from 5* hotels, to agroturismos (small countryside hotels), to self-catering apartments, to Airbnb. Dependent on your preference, there are a range of towns/resorts to choose from: Ibiza Town is great for cosmopolitan nightlife, bars, and restaurants, as well as public transport links; Santa Eularia is great for the beach and families; Playa d’en Bossa has the longest beach in Ibiza and is great for beach bars and nightlife – although more suited to the younger generation and watch out for the aircraft noise!
How to Get
From April to October, there are numerous direct flights to Ibiza from many European destinations. The main hub airports connecting to Ibiza (all year round) are Barcelona and Madrid, but there are also all-year-round flights to Amsterdam, London, and other Spanish cities. You can also arrive by boat from Barcelona, Denia, and Gandia, all in Spain.
The city center is best discovered on foot – especially running, of course!
