The Balearic Islands are some of the greatest tourist destinations in Spain. You can enjoy a vacation there the whole year: in spring, in autumn, in summer and even in winter with a still pleasant temperature. One of the most popular islands is Ibiza. In this article we’re going to talk about 5 things to know before visiting Ibiza.
Here are the top 5 things to know before going to Ibiza:
1. Shopping in Las Dalias
Surely you’ve heard of Las Dalias, one of the most famous hippy markets in the world. If you visit Ibiza you cannot miss it. It is open every Saturday of the year, from ten in the morning.What will you find in Las Dalias? Clothing, jewelry, crafts, musical instruments, records, decoration, accessories, painting, books, hammocks, handmade shoes, antiques… Here you can also have a coffee, a cup, a natural juice or eat a natural pizza. You can even have your future read through the palm of your hands!
2.Tumaca bread in Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera
Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera is the typical Mediterranean town of white houses. Its original appearance is due to the imposing church of the eighteenth century and the intervention made here by various artists in love with this town.
The streets of Santa Gertrudis are full of craft and antique shops, but what we like most about this town is the quantity and quality of bars and restaurants where you can enjoy the cuisine of Ibiza. Something as simple as Tumacabread, tomato, oil and Iberian ham can become a delicacy if you eat it in the right place.
3. Natural Park of Las Salinas and Formentera
This Natural Area is comprised of areas of the two islands, Ibiza and Formentera. They are more than 15,000 hectares, marine and terrestrial, of a great ecological, historical and cultural wealth. Due to its massive size getting to, from and around this place is recommended to be done by car rental. For more information check enjoycarhire.com. It is located between the south of the island of Ibiza and the north of the island of Formentera, in the municipal terms of Sant Josep de saTalaia and Formentera. In Ibiza it is composed of the SesSalines wetlands and the beaches of Es Codolar, Canal de S’Olla, Las Salinas and Es Cavallet. This park is the habitat of a unique plant species the Oceanic Posidonia, of great environmental value, refuge of aquatic beings that performs a very important work of oxygenation and filtering.
4. Visit the Puig de Missa in Santa Eulària
The Puig de Missa is a testament to the history of the island. Nestled 52 meters high above sea level,it owes its name to the church located at the top of this important architectural complex that overlooks a fertile region crossed by the Santa Eulària river.This fortified church owes its origin possibly to the same author of the city walls of Ibiza. Various constructions added later have attenuated the defensive character of the temple. Inside, quite sober, highlights its baroque altarpiece.
5. Cala d’Hortand the Islets of Ponent
Do you have the bikini, towel and sunscreen? Well, we are going to enjoy incredible beaches. Not surprisingly, Cala d’Hort is one of the most representative beaches on the island. This cove is located in front of an open and steep sea, protected between cliffs. The views are unbeatable, but I warn you that here the wind blows hard.But remember also the camera, the selfie stick and the tripod because the Natural Park of Cala d’Hort, Cap Llentisca and Sa Talaia and the Natural Reserves of Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell and the Islets of Ponent, make up one of the most attractive coastlines of the Balearic Islands and Spain.
The islets of Es Vedranell and Ponent are landscapes of the most interesting, but they can hardly compete with Es Vedrà, a huge stone pyramid of great ecological value. Its 382 meters make it visible from the whole island of Ibiza.
We hope our article of the 5 things to know before going to Ibiza will make your trip more memorable.
