Ibiza is a dreamland of beaches with white sands and deep blue waters. It's also renowned for the summer club scene, where the world's best DJs perform hypnotic sets of well-crafted dance music and for the jaw-dropping, fortified Ibiza Old Town. The island has a disorientating, endless quality that only serves to reinforce the magic one feels instinctively as the plane's wheels touchdown on the tarmac.
In Santa Eulalia, you'll find more family resorts scattered along golden coastlines and laid-back villages. Walk the palm-lined promenade and admire the exclusive yacht-filled marina. Visit art galleries and try a variety of water activities like snorkelling and diving. The region is also known for its superb fine dining and for its upmarket boutiques and markets.
The capital, Ibiza Town, is home to a variety of activities. Enjoy idyllic sandy bays, lots of museums, art galleries and the historic citadel of Dalt Vila. The area is great for shopping, too, with high-end fashion stores and local stalls. You can relax in the old town and watch the world go by, or head past the Botafoch marina to the livelier strips – perfect for watching a sunset over the White Isle.
In San Antonio, you'll find the largest concentration of clubs and the main party scene that the island is famed for. Whether you want to welcome the sunrise in a bleary-eyed haze or simply bop your head to some easy tropical house, the strip has everything for the dance music connoisseur to the laid-back music lover.
Ibiza enjoys a hot climate with long sunny days and little rainfall. The most popular time to visit is from May to October, which coincides with the hottest weather. May is the start of Ibiza's famous nightlife and renowned DJs visit the island from then until it winds down in October.
From June to September, the sun shines brightest with temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius. It's cooler outside these months, although still warm enough to enjoy ample sunshine. Sitting around 20 degrees, March and April are great months for exploring.
Luxury holidays to Ibiza include exquisite fine dining experiences with Michelin-starred restaurants. Begin your day with a buffet breakfast and enjoy paella for lunch. In the evening, try beluga caviar, lobster, oysters, scallops and freshly caught fish, like salmon and sea bass.
Enjoy tapas menus and dishes from around the world, like Asian noodle specialities and Japanese sushi and sashimi, along with traditional Mexican foods, like tacos and fajitas. You'll also get to taste tender steaks and stone oven-baked pizzas. Unwind in the evening with cocktails and international wines.
As with any holiday, it's a good idea to carry some identification with you at all times and to keep a photocopy of your passport. British citizens don't need a visa to enter Ibiza. Visit GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel.
