Ibiza Town, known simply as Ibiza amongst locals, is the capital of the island. Dominated by the magnificent sight of Dalt Vila, the ancient fort and with a rich and ancient history, it offers an insight into an age gone by. Cobbled streets and winding alleys will take you on a journey into the heart of the town. The architecture is simply breathtaking, and the town is alive with a multicultural and friendly vibe.
Where to eat
There are literally hundreds of restaurants in Ibiza Town, with cuisines from all corners of the globe. Ancient People on the Avenida Espana serve up authentic Nepalese and Indian dishes in a welcoming, eclectic setting. Arguably the best pizza on the island can be found at Pirata in the old port area, the size and quality of their pizzas and pasta dishes is legendary! La Cava Tapas Bar on the Vara de Rey is a popular meeting point and serves delicious tapas dishes with a modern twist.
Shopaholics will be in seventh heaven here. The tree lined streets are literally bursting with boutiques and stores offering everything from designer beach attire to fabulous footwear. Ibiza Mix, situated just behind the Croissant Show stocks sexy Brazilian designers, with clothes and jewellery all with a Brazilian flair. ReVolver on Carrer del Bisbe Azara is a must visit for fashionistas looking for a vintage find.
The closest beach to the town centre is Talamanca, a family friendly playa dotted with bars and restaurants, including the popular Hostel Talamanca. The waters are shallow and clear, with pedaloes, kayaks and jet skis available for hire. Figueretas beach offers great views across the old town and the marina, and in the evenings, the promenade is vibrant and bustling with many street stalls and performers.
Ibiza Town is home to most of the islands museums and galleries. The Museum of Contemporary Art displays a great variety of works by local and international artists. Pirate enthusiasts can pay a visit to Monumento a los Corsarios, a statue erected in tribute to the pirates who feature largely in Ibizas 18th century history. Situated on Avenida de las Andanas within the harbour, the statue faces the port to honour the pirates legacy. Or take a stroll through the Marina Botafoch and marvel at the super-yachts which moor here each summer, hosting A-list celebrities.
Of course Ibiza Town is also the capital of the islands nightlife scene. Perhaps the most famous club in the world, Pacha is located just outside the town centre, attracting hundreds of thousands of revellers each summer. The famous cherry logo is synonymous with the clubbing world. For a more elegant experience, head to Lio. This decadent restaurant has stunning views across the bay to the old fort and the cabaret show here is simply spectacular. The newly re-opened Booom is also a popular hotspot, with nights hosted by Defected in the House and Glitterbox to name but a few.
