What to visit in Ibiza in addition to its beaches

Ibiza
As everyone who has had the opportunity to travel to Ibiza well know, this island belonging to the Balearic Islands is a real gem. Located in the Mediterranean, it offers 210 kilometers of beaches, beautiful coves with crystal clear waters and spectacular cliffs. Of course, we cannot forget that Ibiza parties are known all over the world. In fact, some of the best DJs and clubs on the planet can be found here.

What many people do not know is that Ibiza is much more than beach and party. For this reason, today at Vuela Viajes we want to talk to you about some of the places that you should visit if you have the opportunity to travel to this jewel of the Mediterranean. Can you come with us?

Dalt Vila

Dalt Vila
How could it be otherwise, we have to start by talking about Dalt Vila, which is how the historic center of the city of Ibiza is known. Located in the upper part, the neighborhood is surrounded by a 16th century wall. Walking through its steep cobbled streets with small whitewashed houses and enjoying the views from the highest area is truly worth it. In addition, here you will find numerous points of interest (the Plaza de la Vila, the bastions of the wall, the Cathedral of the Virgen de las Nieves, the Church of Santa Domingo, the Town Hall …) and restaurants.

Las Dalias Hippie Market

Las Dalias
Las Dalias could not be missing from this list, one of the best and most famous hippy markets in Ibiza. It is celebrated every Saturday of the year and on Monday, Tuesday and Sunday nights of the summer. In addition to finding stalls for clothing, jewelry, exotic musical instruments, music, sandalwood, crafts and other types of items, you can enjoy different events, bars, restaurants and other areas.

We also want to tell you about Es Vedrà, a 385-meter-high islet that was formerly part of Ibiza. It is located in front of Cala d’Hort, in San José and, next to the Es Vedranell islet and the Illots de Ponent, it has been considered a natural reserve since 2002. In addition to being a place of important ecological and cultural value, the islet is enveloped by a special magic. In fact, there are many who say that paranormal phenomena can be observed here.

Ses Salines Natural Park

Ses Salines
Of course, the list cannot miss the Ses Salines Natural Park, a protected natural area located south of Ibiza that covers almost 3,000 land and 13,000 marine hectares, also extending to the north of Formentera . It is a place of important ecological, scenic, historical and cultural value. Of course, above all it stands out for its population of aquatic birds and for the endemic flora and fauna species of the Balearic Islands.

Charming towns

Saint Gertrudis
Beyond its capital, in Ibiza you can find many charming towns. Among all of them we could highlight San Agnès de Corona, an authentic peasant town; Santa Gertrudis, a pleasant inland town; San Antoni de Portmany, an old fishing village, and Santa Eulària des Rius, which houses a beautiful fortified church.

caves

Can Brand
You may not know it, but in Ibiza you can also discover caves of great value, such as the Cueva de Can Marçà, which is located inside a cliff in Port de Sant Miquel. More than 100,000 years old , you will be amazed, among other things, by its incredible views from the outside. Another cave worth visiting is Ses Fontanelles, also known as Cova des Vi.
