Ibiza town is the capital of the island and is situated to the east, right in the middle of the island, which makes it the perfect place to stay and a good starting point for touring the island. The airport is only 8 km from the city and is the main gateway to the island. So far, millions of tourists arrive every year in search of paradisiacal beaches, nights of festivity and debauchery, an exquisite gastronomy and an ample cultural and monumental legacy in the form of churches and castles.
Presiding over the bay is the imposing old town called Dalt Vila. An incredible succession of cobbled streets and alleys that hide a multitude of magical corners, beautiful squares, historic buildings, monuments and churches until you reach the Cathedral of Ibiza, at the top of the walled fortress. It is a highly recommended area both day and night due to its beauty as well as for its entertainment, as it has numerous shops, stores of all kinds, markets, restaurants, etc.
The Vara del Rey area is one of the main places of the capital, overlooked by beautiful historic buildings and surrounded by a large number of shops and all kinds of shops, this area is considered the center of the island and it’s the place where many festivals, fairs and popular celebrations are held.
The Port of Ibiza, located just under the walls, is one of the liveliest areas of the city, with countless shops, terraces, restaurants and nightclubs.
The other lively areas of the city at sunset are the seafaring neighborhoods of La Marina and the Sa Penya neighborhood, both are a real spectacle with countless restaurants, shops and terraces.
The Ibicencan gastronomy is based on a Mediterranean diet where fish, seafood and products from the garden stand out, basically the products that the island provides. Also famous are their sausages, cheeses and liqueurs. Some dishes that we recommend are the "blunt of rajada" a stew of fish, atún a la ibicenca, the "sofrit de pagès" a dish of the interior of the island with meat and some pastries like the "Flaó" or the "Orelletes"
It is a real pleasure to visit the city and its most outstanding monuments including the wonderful Dalt Vila castle. A charming walk through its narrow cobbled streets, full of shops and restaurants until you reach the imposing Ibiza Cathedral at the top of the Castle. There is also the Plaza de Vara del Rey or the monument to pirates and fishermen of the Drassana street. Discover the maritime neighborhoods of La Marina and Sa Peña.
