Ibiza Town (Eivissa in Catalan) is the capital of the island. It is also the busiest destination on the island of Ibiza, there are major nightclubs of the island (e.g. the Pasha). This is in our opinion the most interesting city of the island of Ibiza thanks to its high city (Dalt Vila) surrounded by its fortifications. Its historic centre is picturesque with its pretty houses and cobbled streets. At the summit, the Cathedral offers a magnificent panoramic view of the surroundings. In the summer, the entertainment is around the old harbour with its many restaurants and bars.
As for beaches in Ibiza town, the choice is very limited! No beach directly in the city centre, the nearest is in the area of Figueretes (west of the town centre, 1.5 km). Little interest in this beach apart from its pedestrian promenade ... the area is the oldest tourist area of Ibiza (many tourist buildings of the 70s). We prefer Talamanca Beach (20-minute walk).
Near Ibiza, the most attractive beach and the livelier is d'En Bossa Beach which stretches over 2.7 km. It reminds us of Pampelonne Beach for its many lively private beaches. However, its environment is very different ... with many large hotels along the beach and a hyper-touristy town centre with shops of very poor quality. To the west, the seaside resort of Sant Antoni is the second destination of the island, especially popular with the British. Eivissa is the boarding point to get to the island of Formentera with some of the most beautiful beaches of the Pityuses Islands (30 minutes by boat).
