Besides those who are simply looking for a place of sun and sea, Ibiza is a famous place from rock stars and young artists dancing wildly. The club that this island side is also famously concentrated mainly in the south of the island.
Founded as Ibosim by the Carthage people in the middle of 7th century BC, Eivissa developed a flourishing economy based on exports of salt, ceramics, glass and agricultural products. Evidence for this prosperity are the Ibizan coins found throughout the Mediterranean. But if Ibiza had a flourishing past, its present is no less prosperous.
Since the 1960s has attracted visitors: first those who go to find sophisticated nightlife as well as sunshine, sand and surf the web. Then there is a holiday package destination for young travelers, whose nightlife is no longer too complicated, but start entering bars and discos near the harbor and don’t end until good after dawn.
Ibiza Town is the capital of the island, dominated by its old town, Dalt Vila, whose walls are the longest in Spain. In the walls, you will find a gravel maze packed with whitewashed houses, small bars, shops, flea markets and restaurants serving local food. The capital has two archaeological museums containing an artistic treasure of the Carthage. Puig des Molins, built adjacent to a graveyard, and tours of burial rooms are given.
This is the beach, however, most people go for. They started just south of the town, but the best, and certainly the most sophisticated, often agreed were those in Las Salinas. Santa Eularia, to the north, is an important resort, as Sant Antoni on the west coast, although this is a lot of cheap holiday package lands. Portinatx and San Miguel, in the north, are much smaller and quieter resorts, and you can visit the caves in San Miguel.
