Explore Ibiza Island with Expedia’s Travel Guides to find the best hotels, flights, holiday packages and more!
Renowned for its nightlife, especially in and around the lively resorts of Playa d’en Bossa or San Antonio, Ibiza is one of the world’s premier party destinations. But it offers much more than just that. Beyond the nightclubs, Ibiza is home to golden sandy beaches, beautiful traditional fishing villages and a wealth of history to discover. As the third largest island in the Balearic archipelago with numerous attractions and sites to explore, private car hire provides a cost-effective and convenient way of seeing it all.
Ibiza airport is just over four miles south of Ibiza Town and serves Formentera and Ibiza itself. International flights are mostly seasonal, occurring between May and October, but a few international connections run all year round. Car rental companies operating from Ibiza Airport include Hertz, Avis, Europcar and Atesa. Their desks are located on level 0 of the terminal building. As car rental is in high demand during peak times, it is a good idea to book in advance. Those hoping to book a car rental service in Ibiza should be sure to use the Expedia search tool, which can help to save money and make the process easier.
There are a number of local car hire companies in Ibiza. Most are situated in the densely populated areas, like Ibiza Town, Santa Eulària des Riu, and Sant Antoni de Portmany. Whilst the island itself is fairly small and can be covered in a few hours, it is definitely worth taking your time exploring the bays and stunning interior at your leisure.
Nowhere quite beats San Antonio Marina Port in Sant Antoni de Portmany on the west coast for watching the sunset. Enjoy the views from its strip of buzzing bars and quirky cafes. Santa Eulalia on the other hand provides visitors with a more laid back experience. With its mellow waterfront bars, fantastic restaurants and local shops, you can relax away the hours. To enjoy crystal clear waters, fine golden sand and a simply beautiful sunset, look no further than Cala Conta Beach, a popular beach in the north west of Ibiza. Visitors looking for a more peaceful excursion should try heading north to one of Ibiza’s more secluded spots. One of the finest is Es Portitxol - a teardrop-shaped beach that can be reached by a thrillingly rickety pathway.
A trip to Ibiza is not complete without getting your cultural fix in Ibiza Town. From walking the winding narrow streets to enjoying live music and fantastic local cuisine in the town’s legendary Teatro Pereyra, experience Ibiza like a local. Enjoy weaving through the narrow streets, visiting local markets and discover the traditional fishing villages dotted along the coastline.
