Things to do in Ibiza

While this Balearic island is best known for its happening party scene, there’s so much more to uncover here, from its Unesco World Heritage Old Town to the hidden coves that are tucked into the coastline’s cliffs, and from authentic local eateries to the fine dining restaurants of five-star hotels. These are the best things to do in Ibiza.

Ibiza Town

Providing an insight into this island’s past as well as its cultural and culinary identity, Ibiza Town is an integral part of discovering the island. With around 2,500 years of history, the Unesco World Heritage Old Town—Dalt Vila—is celebrated for its historic architecture, and in particular the citadel’s castle, which now acts as a museum. The Mercat Vell or Old Market, which originates from 1873, is also located here, selling cheese, herbs, wine and olive oil among other local produce. To discover some of the local art, you can then pay a visit to the Museo d’Art Contemporani d’Eivissa located within a stone house dating from 1727 which has been renovated by the Ibizan architect Victor Beltran Roca.
