The island of Ibiza is only 28 miles long by 16 miles wide. With an Ibiza car hire, it is easy to cover it in one day, leaving you more time to extend your visit to other attractive places further afield.
Flights to Ibiza land at Ibiza Airport and from there 20-25 minutes in an Ibiza hire car will get you to the town centre.
Several villages are a short drive away from Ibiza Town. You can go to San Carlos, San Juan, Santa Gertrudis, Santa Eulalia, or San Miguel (approx 20 minutes northwest) for the beautiful caves of caves of Can Marca. If you fancy contemplating the island from its highest point, drive half an hour westward to San José. For Ibiza wine tasting try Bodegas y Viñedos Can Rich.

With an Ibiza hire car, you can use the ferry to cross over either to mainland Spain or one of the neighbouring islands. Valencia, known as a city of arts and sciences, is 93 miles from Ibiza. Crossing from Ibiza by ferry or plane, you can visit their planetarium and oceanarium (approximate journey time is five hours).
Part of Valencia region is the resort of Benidorm, very popular with British expats, with its two wide sandy beaches. Families can have a great day of fun at the Aqualandia water park and the marine animal park Mundomar next to it. Dénia, halfway between Alicante and Valencia, has an 11th century castle on a rock with great view of the city and the coast. The castle is also home to Dénia’s Archaeological Museum (approximate journey time is four hours).
Palma, capital of the neighbouring island of Mallorca, is about 90 miles to the northeast of Ibiza. A worthwhile visit is Palma’s splendorous Gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, or La Seu, redesigned in the 20th century by Antoni Gaudí. (approximate journey time is five hours and 40 minutes)
You must be older than 18 to be entitled to drive in Spain. If you have a driving licence issued in a EU or EEA country, you don’t need an international driving permit. Drive on the right. Wear a seatbelt at all times.
The speed limit on motorways at the moment is 75mph, on open roads 62mph and in town centres 30mph. Should you be unlucky and get a fine, you must pay it immediately, with a 50% discount, or your vehicle could be confiscated. The Guardia Civil, in green uniforms, are the police officers looking after traffic offences. Keep your licence, ID (passport), insurance and car hire papers always with you.
‘Gasoleo’ is not gasoline but diesel. Leaded petrol is usually sold as ‘super or super 97’ and unleaded petrol as ‘sin plomo’. When driving in the countryside, remember petrol stations may close for two hours at lunch time and all day on Sunday; keep an eye on your tank.
