Get a dose of history and culture

The town of Ibiza or locally known as Eivissa is the starting point of any tour of the island.

Where to stay

For more laid-back, relaxing and quiet holidays, and to fully recharge batteries, opt to stay in Santa Eulària des Riu or Santa Eulalia del Río, which is the third largest town on the island and a great seaside resort town.

Several 5 star luxury hotels such as Aguas de Ibiza, an eco-luxury design hotel, line up the coast. The property, which is scheduled to reopen during Easter 2017 for a new season, offers superb accommodation, fine dining with spectacular views,

What to eat

Ibiza is surrounded by the sea, therefore food is prepared daily with fresh produce and fine ingredients and are accompanied by local wine.

Among the well-known dishes we find: sobrasada (sausage infused with paprika), sofrit pagès (fried meat), guisat de peix (fish stew), arroz a la marinera (resembling the paella),

Love seafood? Then you must tantalize your tastebuds with the one and only Paella, a typical feast in Spain and around the world. Rice is cooked with all types of seafood and is delicious.

For your sweet tooth or dessert lovers, there is:

Flao (soft tart made with goat cheese and mint)

Greixonera (Cinnamon pudding)

Or

Orelletes (lemon-flavored fried pastry)

 

And last but not least
