The other face of Ibiza
Stereotypically, Ibiza is treated as a place where you go to have fun. Countless dance clubs, discos, bars, as well as beautiful weather and the paradise atmosphere of the island make it difficult to find a better place to have fun.
Suffice it to say that right here, in Ibiza, there is the world's largest dance night club: PRIVILEGE. The club can accommodate nearly 11 people, the main hall is as big as large airplane hangars, and the main PRIVILEGE dance floor could accommodate most of the most famous clubs in the world.
This time, however, we will look at Ibiza from a different perspective. Ibiza offers much more than just clubs and loud parties. After all, it is a typical, beautiful Mediterranean island, with beautiful beaches, history, atmospheric towns and monuments. Moreover, there are two top-shelf facilities on the island, included on the UNESCO list. When planning a trip to Ibiza, it is worth planning some free time for relaxation and sightseeing.
Traveling around Ibiza
The easiest way to explore Ibiza is by car. Of course, not my own, but a borrowed one. There are many rental companies on the island that offer car rentals at favorable prices and do not require a credit card.
A guide that will help you rent a car and choose the best offer can be found here: ???
I do not recommend other means of transport because (in my opinion) they do not compare very favorably with the offers of car rental companies. Of course, you can research this issue yourself, but you will probably come to the same conclusion.
Ibiza tourist attractions map
To make exploring Ibiza easier, I have prepared a special map of attractions, marking the places I have chosen on it. Each attraction marked on the map has its own number. Further in the text under this number you will find additional information related to a given attraction. It will be mainly a short description and some important information (if necessary).
I usually include GPS coordinates of the nearest car park in all attractions and (if necessary) additional coordinates of key points that will help you get to the right place.
Use this data! They are simple to use. Just click on the link next to them, and the navigation will start automatically and calculate the route to the destination (just don't forget to switch the navigation from car mode to walking mode or vice versa).
Ibiza sightseeing plan
After a quick glance at the above map of attractions, you've probably realized that it won't be a problem to create your own itinerary for visiting Ibiza. Based on the map above, anyone can do it themselves in a few minutes.
So this time I'm not imposing or proposing my own plan. Just go wherever you want and watch what you want.
The map above and the basic data set below should help you do just that.
