Beaches, beaches and more beaches:

If Ibiza is famous for anything apart from its beaches with their crystal-clear Waters, it is of course for its nonstop party nights. Some of the most famous discotheques in the world are on the island. Thousands of clubbers from all over the world come to the Ibiza parties every summer to enjoy an atmosphere unlike any other and to dance to the world’s best DJs. Pacha, Amnesia, Ushuaïa, Hï, Heart, Edén and Privilege are the best known.
Combining partying and the beach:
Even though the nightlife has always been a stalwart of Ibiza’s tourism, over the last few years it has become increasingly popular to have fun and enjoy great music during the day and preferably on a beach. Beach clubs which are usually open until midnight have sprung up around the island enabling you to dance in your swimwear with your toes in the sand. If you love partying by day, the following are the places to be: Blue Marlin Ibiza, Nassau Beach Club, Bora Bora, Elements or Nikki Beach.
Visit Ibiza’s old town and its villages:
Save a day to stroll through the alleyways of Dalt Vila, the beautiful historical old town of Ibiza which was declared World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1999. https://www.ibizaruralvillas.com/eng/post/ibiza-wold-heritage
You should also make time to dine in any of the quaint villages with their Whitewashed houses like Santa Gertrudis, San Carlos, Sant Joan, Sant Josep, San Agustín, Santa Inés or Es Cubells.
Ibiza is famous for its crystal-clear Waters, and this transparency is due to the posidonia, an ocean plant which acts as a natural purifier. Posidonia is therefore a real treasure which has also been declared a World Heritage by UNESCO. Probably one of the best ways to enjoy Ibiza’s waters is to rent a boat to have a wonderful day at sea. https://www.ibizaruralvillas.com/eng/rent/boats
This is a great means of getting to the adjacent and beautiful sister island of Formentera which is real natural paradise. Formentera is quite a small island so it can be visited in a day. You can also get there by a regular ferry; there are several companies which cover the route all day long. If however, you prefer something a bit wilder you can also sign up for a trip on one of the famous party boats which run all summer, it’s an unforgettable experience https://www.ibizaruralvillas.com/eng/post/boat-parties-ibiza
