Sitting just in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Ibiza is a truly unspoiled jewel. Known for its parties and beaches, Ibiza has much more to offer. Amazing sceneries, gastronomy, and activities that attract all kinds of tourists every summer.
Immerse Yourself in Dalt Vila, the Old Town of Ibiza
Ibiza is home to multiple UNESCO World Heritage sights. One of them being Ibiza’s Old Town, Dalt Vila.
Located on top of a hill and guarded by ancient renaissance walls from the 16th century, the fortified city is one of the most well-preserved cities in Europe.
The Old City is beautiful all day long with all the hidden gems you can find in its narrow cobblestones’ streets: castles, canons, stone statues, Gothic architecture, and 14th-century cathedrals. The views of the sea from the ramparts are stunning

Dalt Vila isn’t just a tourist attraction. It’s still residential and offers genuine real life. The city offers as well many little shops, restaurants, and galleries.
Discover Atlantis Cove
Atlantis was, in fact, a quarry. That’s the reason for its beautiful geometric forms. Dalt Vila’s Wall was build up with the stones taken from Atlantis.
If you like to walk, Atlantis should be on your “to-do” list. It takes more than 2 hours to get there but I guarantee it worth the walk.
And don’t forget to take a good pair of slippers and a few litters of water !!!

Things to do in Ibiza – Be inspired by Es Vedra
Full of mystery and is the third most magnetic place in the world, Es Vedra island is tied to a few myths and legends. From UFOs sightings, the mythology around Homer´s Odyssey to speculations that its rock was used to build the Pyramids, Stonehenge, and Easter Island.
The islands of Es Vedra and Es Vedranell can be seen from Cala D‘hort (a cove west Ibiza). If you are willing to walk, la Torre de Sa Pedrera, on the top of the cliffs, south Cala D’hort, is the perfect spot to enjoy the views.
Emerging from the ravishingly beautiful Mediterranean like a volcano, its only sight has healing power.
