The port of Ibiza offers some of the best views of Dalt Vila, historic downtown. As if it were a postcard, it perfectly frames the sailboats in the foreground surrounded by crystal clear water in the cathedral crowning the mountain to the bottom. Strolling along the harbor not only offers great views but also unique shops and restaurants that are very good for looking but often at very high prices. But you know, after all, it's Ibiza.
The views from the walls are fabulous. Being about to walk next to such historical structures is quite breathtaking. They’re in a good state of conservation and it’s worth seeing them, they’re spectacular.
If you can make it to the highest part of the city, at the foot of the cathedral, you’ll enjoy a great view, although it’s pretty steep…
The taxi driver took us as high as he could and then we had to walk the rest of the way, before heading back down to the sea. It was much more relaxed walking and let us see the cute streets and the entrance with the arch and elevated gate. We even enjoyed a juglar’s performance (street performer/jester).
Dalt Vila means Barrio Alto city and this is surrounded by walls, all households are included within this neighborhood. The broadest point is the square of the Cathedral from which you can go down a few streets wondering around where they are very beautifully restored . It is full of restaurants, which are a little expensive, but of course when you go on vacation, money doesn't matter. It is about the precious days. Day and night have a special charm, no one should go without knowledge of Ibiza Dalt Vila.
One of the world's most legendary albums. So much so, that after you arrive you are not so surprised. Entering the club requires a process. If you do not want to pay the 65 € euros, you can try to get in for free. To do this, you need to know someone, or you can find someone that will give you a pass while you are out sunbathing. The entry, by the way, does not include a drink. The cups inside are 15 € more. The club has several areas with different types of music each, from the house in the style of Ibiza, to R & B. Right in front of the hotel have Pacha, looks good. At Pacha prick the top Djs, or at least the most recognized in the world. My favorite thing is a Swede named Martin Solveig.
It is located in the municipality of San José in the Natural Park of Ses Salines, between the beaches of Cavallet and Ses Salines in the south of the island of Ibiza. This is a two-story conical defensive building, constructed in the sixteenth century. It is made of limestone, and its exterior is quite smooth, with no details except for four small windows for ventilation. It was used as a watchtower to defend against pirate attacks, and you can enjoy magnificent views of the islands of Ibiza and Formentera.
Undoubtedly the most beautiful area of Ibiza town was the Mother of Deu street and its surroundings. To start, you can enjoy the stunning sea views and then wander through the side street admiring the beauty of the simplicity of houses and corners. Then we found an area that could be dangerous, but in the daylight nothing unusual happened.
Finding this beach front apartment in Ibiza was the best decision I could have made in 2013. We stayed in one of the city's real neighbourhood, where many local Ibizans live, and they were our neighbours throughout the year. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, with pretty little Figueretas beach right in front of us. Every morning we'd get up and go to the balcony to admire the spectacular views of the beach. The apartment, between the city centre and the old and new quarters of Can Misses and En Bossa beach, couldn't have a better location - close to everything, with good public transport, a white area for parking, and a taxi rank in front. We rented out a triple room with a private bathroom in our apartment to help pay the rent.
The water on Figueretas beach is surprisingly clean for an urban beach, and the quality of both water and sand is great when compared to En Bossa. It's not too popular with the crowds, so it doesn't get polluted or claustrophobic in summer. The apartment is near the beach in Los Molinos, located on a hill where you find some old mills and from which you can enjoy beautiful views of the bay of Ibiza - Playa de en Bossa. If you want to visit Ibiza, it would be a pleasure to welcome you to our home.
The Marina district is one of the oldest of the capital, at the foot of Dalt Vila and between Vara del Rey and the port. Here you find places that are mythical as well as the zoo, and there are lots of restaurants and bars. At night the market shines with lots of clothing and trinkets, all very modern. In this neighborhood you can start the night as glasses are taken until 2 in the morning and then go to Privilege, Pacha or fashion disco work that year
It is one of the best views of the town of Ibiza. It doesn't take long to reach the first viewpoint, and it is certainly worth it. From the top you can enjoy all of the center of Ibiza, the port, the ships returning to port, the aircraft above jostling. I know that you can continue up to a point where the views are even better. Overall, if you are in Ibiza you absolutely must stop here.
This was the most surprising street in Dalt Vila - apart from being a nice street to walk along, it also has its own walk of fame! On the wall you can see how different celebrities from the world of film have left their hand prints here in the cement. The truth is that they're not, on the whole, particularly well-known - Penelope Cruz is the only name you might recognize, as most of the rest are German actors and directors that nobody knows. Still, I find it very interesting and I have not been able to find the reason behind it - perhaps a film festival or something, but I haven't heard of anything. If you have an idea, let me know!
Riba sa Square itself is not much, but it is several blocks from very interesting shops and restaurants. One contains several posts hippies where, apart from having the usual, I was surprised to find that you could try the discs like you're in the fnac!! On the street! It is so amazing that I think it pays just to stop to shop there.
The Funky Fish clothing store is a clothing store that is notable for the originality of its design. The entrance mimics a wave about to pounce on you, it's not in vain and most of the clothes are surfer style, you can also find hippie clothing. As for prices, there is everything, but if you look well and during sales, you may find a bargain.
Without wanting to belittle Ibiza, Ibiza Cathedral isn't particularly impressive, being rather austere, and not very big. This is part because it had a defensive function. It was started in the thirteenth century, and reformed until the eighteenth. The interior is quite modern, because there was a fire in 1936, and the cathedral suffered a lot of damage with, among other things, the altarpiece dedicated to Our Lady getting burned. The present one is a copy of the original, but it's interesting.
Ibiza's archaeological museum is located just next to the cathedral, and has exhibits from the prehistoric, Roman and Islamic periods. Beside it is the Casa de la Curia, which was once a court, and a university. I think you can visit both buildings together. The visiting hours are from 10 to 14 and 18 to 20. From October to March 9 to 15. They are closed on Mondays.
An official heritage site since 1931, the Puig des Molins is the biggest, best-preserved Phoenician necropolis, dating back to the seventh century BC. It also contains remains from Roman times, with over 2,000 tombs, although only 300 can be visited. The state of conservation is very good; over time, olives were grown in the necropolis, so the archaeological site was mostly left alone. There's also a museum with figures of the goddess Tanit, amulets, pendants, and all kinds of ceramic pieces. I got there late in the day, so I couldn't see the most impressive part, but I looked online later and saw some pretty incredible photos. Hours are Tuesday through Saturdays from 10:00 to 14:00 and 18:00 to 20:00. Closed on Mondays and admission is free.
Walking through Ibiza, looking for a good place to stop and have a sandwich, we came cross this little park. The huge fountain will catch your eye, with a very original design - on the different faces, you can read the word PEACE in a number of different languages. Around it there are some comfortable benches to sit down and eat, although there's grass for picnics if you prefer.
Any trip to this Balearic island is sure to be a memorable vacation, as there are so many Ibiza activities, monuments, and adventures waiting for you! The capital of the island not only has great beaches, it also has a lot of well-preserved historical treasures. You would not believe the wealth of stuf to do in Ibiza!
The island is known worldwide for its beautiful beaches, coves, and water quality, and also for its nightlife with great clubs, so if you want some fun things to do in Ibiza, you can dance until dawn! But Ibiza is more than just a party island. There are also plenty of historical places to visit in Ibiza like the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Snows, located in the Dalt Vila and built on the old mosque of Yebisah. It is a cathedral built in the 13th century in the Gothic-Catalan style. Together with the Renaissance walls of the 16th century, the area in 1999 was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Other things to see in Ibiza are the Episcopal Palace, city hall, castle overlooking the city, and the necropolis and its port. This city also has several museums, including the archaeological museum where you can learn about the history of the island from prehistoric times to the Muslim period, and the Monographic Museum and Punic Necropolis of Puig des Molins, two of the attractions in Ibiza where you can learn more about the history of the city.
But for most people who ask themselves what to do in Ibiza, the beach comes to mind. Take a boat trip, enjoy the local cuisine, and of course swim in the crystal clear waters, one of the most famous and popular Ibiza attractions!
