An array of great travel deals and vacation packages to this island paradise provide other great sights and sounds that brings traveling pleasure to an even higher level. This great tourist destination has a lot of everything to attract us all.
The Island of Ibiza conjures up in the minds of most such images as ancient trading, beaches, wild parties and rain. This Island, like Menorca, is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea and sits to the left of the Mallorca Island. Known as “Eivissa”, this island is rich in Phoenician history. It is about 2 hours flight time from most major cities in Europe. Ibiza, including the other Balearics, used to be joined to mainland Spain, but rising sea levels left them as the islands as they are now known. The word “balearic” comes from the Greek for “slingshot”. This was the locals preferred method of attack or defense during the more turbulent part of their history, and they were very proficient with this particular weapon.
For the uninitiated ones, Ibiza is a club paradise that has earned the title as the party capital of Europe. The place is witness to some of the wild parties and clubbing ever seen. But one has to plant his feet solidly on the ground and discover this chameleon island’s other side. In recent past, Ibiza has been crowned as the new Provence, as it became renowned for its stunning scenery, fine beaches, great hotels, upscale restaurants and UNESCO-designated old town.
A lot of people have their fair share of misplaced notion of this place, especially those with families, who either have seen or heard horror stories about clubbers and some extreme behaviors. But this is a totally unfair reflection on what is truly a very beautiful island paradise. There are more ideal places for families out for some great and clean entertainment. Santa Eularia and Cala Llonga are treasures worth visiting. Santa Eularia in particular is renowned for its best selection of restaurants in the Mediterranean. Ibiza is one great architectural wonder. Of primary interest to tourist are the walls that fortify the Old Town. The grandeur of this structure is a silent testament of the enduring spirit of the Island during the more turbulent 16th century. Outside town, one will be captivated by the rustic backdrop of the island’s traditional and rural architecture. The place has predominantly light-colored buildings designed to be simple, functional and picturesque, often centered on a porch or portico.
Ibiza boasts of Mediterranean weather, with mild winters and hot summers. The hot sunny months of May to October are when the influx of visitors to the island is at its peak. However, many people still enjoy visiting the island out of season as temperatures rarely fall below zero.
Ibiza may be the hottest party place in Europe but it still has a lot more to offer beyond wild party scenes. This paradise is an ideal relaxing destination for the entire family wanting some quiet holiday on one of its 30 or more fine beaches.
