About Ibiza

Ibiza and neighbouring Formentera are the two most southern Balearic Islands. The Greeks named them the Islas Pitiusas, the islands of pine trees. Rainfall is sparse, the landscape rugged and the dramatic coastline is interspersed with dozens of fine sandy beaches, stunning dive sites and hidden coves… making them excellent summer cruising grounds for visiting yachts. Nearly every anchorage and cove harbours a chic beach bar serving a range of grilled fish and paella, with many offering an on board lunch delivery service.

The main harbour services Ibiza town, and the International airport is just five kilometres to the south west of the town. The port is large and very busy during the summer season. Visiting yachts have a choice of three full services marinas within the harbour… two lie to the east and are a short walk or taxi ride from the main town, and the third is situated beneath the old city walls in the heart of the town. Between the historic old walled city of D’Alt Vila and the old port, lies the Sa Penya district, a maze of narrow streets and lanes lined with whitewashed shops, bars and restaurants.

As the sun goes down over D’Alt Vila during the summer months, these bars and restaurants then open… heralding the start of another twelve hours of clubbing and partying! Inland Ibiza is the party island of the Balearics, but around the coastal areas the island still retains some beautifully unspoilt beaches and coves, offering the same aura of peace and tranquillity that attracted the first ‘flower power’ party goers who discovered Ibiza back in the 1960’s.
