Plan well the trip: You want to know what different things you can do during your trip? In this link, there’s a small guide to our favorite places, such as natural parks, markets, shopping areas, restaurants, beach bars, the best places to watch the sunset…
Beaches: With 210 km of coastline and dozens of beaches and coves. Ibiza has everything, from lively and glamorous beaches such as Cala Jondal, Cala Bassa and Ses Salines, to idyllic beaches ideal for watching the sunset, such as Cala Comte. The beaches in the north of the island, in the Sant Joan and Santa Eulalia areas, are usually quieter and more peaceful. Some of them, even in the middle of summer, are uncrowded. To find the best time to go to a particular beach, check things like from where the wind is blowing, etc. For example, when the wind blows from the north is best to visit the beaches in the south and vice versa. Also, the sun sets later in the beaches in the west.
Getting around in Ibiza: The best way for getting around the island is renting a car. Public transport (namely buses) works well on many routes, but if you really want to fully discover Ibiza the best is a car. Although you will find many car rental offers online, you should carefully read the reservation conditions. Also, another option is the taxi, although it’s more expensive. But only take official licensed taxis, because illegal ones are non-compliant with the regulation and if you have any problem you won’t have the right to make a claim.
Eating o dine: In Ibiza you can eat very well because there’s many and great restaurants with all kinds of cuisine and price ranges. You can try dishes from all over the world as well as local dishes which you must try. Next link, the Ibiza5sentidos.es guide offers you 10 good, nice and cheap restaurants
