Ibiza is perhaps Europe’s most vibrant island, where chic disco cafes nestle by golden beaches, and pine-clad hills shelter luxe villas owned by the rich and famous. The northern half of the island is quieter, with a calmer vibe, while the south has secured some of Europe’s coolest clubs and bars, not to mention beaches. It’s just over an hour by car from one side of the island to the other, so Ibiza is also pleasingly easy to get around. As well as dozens of smaller spots, there are three big resorts on the island, each packed with dining, nightlife and gorgeous coastline.

Ibiza Town is the island’s sun-soaked capital, renowned for its nightlife but also for historic sights like its beautiful Old Town. The crystal-clear waters of Cala Comte are nearby, and clubs such as Pacha and Amnesia keep the evenings lively.

Just a little southwards is Platja d’en Bossa, arguably the island’s most popular resort. With its three kilometres of golden beachfront, ancient fortifications and world-famous Ushuaia club, this is Ibiza at its best.

The final ‘big’ resort is San Antonio, situated on the north-western coast of Ibiza. Expect some of the island’s most gregarious clubs, a diverse and varied restaurant scene and a handful of gorgeous beaches all within easy reach.

For a more relaxed stay, there are plenty of more secluded and exclusive resorts to choose from. Only a short drive from the airport is Santa Eulalia – a firm family favourite, offering an authentic Spanish vibe with a tree-lined coastal promenade, lots of local eateries and a small but lovely beach. Further north is Es Cana, another refined resort with a curve of sandy beachfront, local restaurants and its famous Hippy Market, held weekly. Right at the island’s northern shore is Portinatx – once a fishing village and now a haven to those seeking a stress-free escape, thanks to three great beaches and a smattering of restaurants and bars.

With all this and more, Ibiza is the perfect option for your villa holiday.
