Anchored in the Mediterranean just 93 miles from Valencia, Ibiza is the closest island in the Balearic archipelago to the Spanish mainland. Generations of travelers have heard the siren song of its sun-baked beaches and crystal-clear waters. Of course, Ibiza also has a reputation for its all-night parties, electronic music and DJ-driven clubs — including the world’s largest, Privilege, which has a capacity for 10,000 revelers.
In 1999 UNESCO declared Ibiza a World Heritage Site because of the island’s cultural diversity and historic value. Discover these four must-see sites.
Located in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, there is one Balearic Island that is well known for its unique ambiance and cultural liveliness.

A visit to this Mediterranean island will awaken your soul to the all the finer things in life, mostly those that involve extreme style, hidden beaches, and heaps of local seafood. If you’re an all-night party owl, then as I’m sure you know, this island will have no problem welcoming you.
Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean sea off the east coast of Spain and is the third largest island of the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera), an autonomous community of Spain. The island comprises five municipalities: Ibiza or Eivissa (Ibiza town), Santa Eulària del Rio, Sant Antoni, San José and San Juan Bautista while it covers an area of 572 km² and has 210 kilometres of coastline. Its population is 141,000 , of which around 76% are Spaniards while 24% are foreign residents. The island’s major cities are Ibiza Town (the capital), Santa Eulalia del Rio and Sant Antoni de Portmany. Ιbiza is often referred as either the “White Island” because of its white buildings and typical smooth domed architecture or as the “Pine Island” because of its abundance in pine trees.
While this Balearic island is best known for its happening party scene, there’s so much more to uncover here, from its Unesco World Heritage Old Town to the hidden coves that are tucked into the coastline’s cliffs, and from authentic local eateries to the fine dining restaurants of five-star hotels. These are the best things to do in Ibiza.
Providing an insight into this island’s past as well as its cultural and culinary identity, Ibiza Town is an integral part of discovering the island. With around 2,500 years of history, the Unesco World Heritage Old Town—Dalt Vila—is celebrated for its historic architecture, and in particular the citadel’s castle, which now acts as a museum. The Mercat Vell or Old Market, which originates from 1873, is also located here, selling cheese, herbs, wine and olive oil among other local produce.
Ibiza, an island off the east coast of Spain, welcomed 150 Chinese tourists earlier this year, a rare sight for locals. Encouraged by their arrival, Gloria Corral Joven, head of the local tourism bureau, led a team to Shanghai in mid-November to promote Ibiza as a destination for Chinese tourists.
“We are building a Chinese website, which will be open to the public early next year,” Joven says.
Ibiza was one of 18 exhibitors from Spain, an emerging destination for Chinese tourists, at the Shanghai International Tourism Fair, which has just ended.
The fair attracted more than 2,500 exhibitors from 106 countries and regions, and is one of the largest tourist events hosted in Asia.
“China is a very important market for Spain,” says Rafael Chamorro, an official from the Spain National Administration of Tourism.
