Ibiza has something for everyone regardless of what you’re interested in. Famed for its electrifying nightlife people are often mistaken in thinking this is all the island has to offer. Large portions of Ibiza are actually registered as U.N World Heritage Sites. Summer is the best time to go as any other time of the year the Island is empty of tourists and all the clubs are closed.
There is more to Ibiza than just clubbing, and surprisingly, it is great for families as well. There is plenty to do including tours of the island by car, boat or train, windsurfing, sailing, tennis, mountain biking, diving and countless other water sports which can be enjoyed by families and young groups who holiday in Ibiza. For real family fun there is a bowling centre, karting, an aquarium and a water park.
One thing’s for sure when you go to Ibiza and that is you’re guaranteed a clubbing experience like never before. Top clubs, the best DJs, an array of celebrities and mad partygoers create a magical experience you’re unlikely to uncover anywhere else. With clubs lining the vibrant streets there is definitely something for everyone.
Privilege, the world’s biggest club is absolutely mind – blowing and hosts the infamous Manumussion parties on Friday nights. The first club to open in Ibiza, Pacha, has set a trend around the globe as there are now over 70 located around the world. For the real hard – core clubbers amongst you, Space is a must as it opens when all the other clubs shut. Regarded by many as the finest club in the world, it offers music for all different tastes with five different music areas.
One of the most surprising things about Ibiza is how cheap eating out is and the extraordinary amount of restaurants available. The choice is yours with Spanish cuisine, Italian, French, Dutch, Chinese and fish restaurants amongst others. As well as this you can choose to enjoy your meals along the beach, docks or scenic town.
