The third biggest Island of the Balearic islands has a very special appeal and is perfect for car hire. The sea is turquoise, the beaches like white snow and the nightlife a bit more challenging. You might thus consider going for a spin with car hire in Ibiza. While in Ibiza you should head to its very popular capital : Eivissa. For years the city has been “The HOTSPOT” in the Mediterranean Sea. Clubs and bars are changed into a legendary party place by international DJ´s. Besides the latest Parties there is also a different Ibiza: drive around Ibiza around this hilly island, full of untouched nature, cosy places and a coast with lots of different beaches (official maps say there are more than 50 beaches). Taking a trip in Ibiza will enable you to fully discover the surrounding area that this beautiful island has to offer.
Besides the big tourist centres (Eivissa, San Antonio und Santa Eularia) the island is sparsely populated. Lonesome fincas and small villages dot the landscape. But even in the tourist centres you will find no bed bunkers. Today the whole island is dependent on the tourism: approximately 1,8 Million English, German, Italian and French people visit Ibiza every year giving this island a very international feeling. Join them with car hire in Ibiza and see what you have been missing out on.
The Streets are very well maintained. The typical Spanish, bumpy roads can only be found in the hilly back country. The airport and the capital of the island Eivissa are even connected by a motorway. Ibiza got its name “island of the rich and the beauty” mainly from the yacht harbours. Nearly every bigger village has a picturesque harbour and some anchorage places offshore so why not give them a visit and see what delights they have to offer.
Santa Eularia, Ibiza, offers elegant shopping opportunities for a ambitious public, and a luxurious yacht harbour. Furthermore, the city is considered to be the cultural centre because of its many galleries. Next to the shops of the big labels, which can be visited with the hire car, there are lots of small shops from new designers, which are great to shop in. Here you will find Spanish leather and velour leather, which is famous for its softness. When you head towards the harbour, try to get some information about the ferry which takes you to Formentera, 'the little sister of Ibiza'. You can see Formentera from the harbour, and it is worth a day excursion with car hire. In St. Antonio, Ibiza, there is a defense-church from the 14th century and one of the most beautiful natural habours in Europe, which is the centre of the city with its gorgeous baywalk.
Es Canar and Portinax, which are on the east of the Island, are very attractive, especially for families. A excursion with car hire is especially interesting on Wednesdays when the traditional 'hippie market' takes place. A lot of young people from the bigger cities stop over and make the market a well known place to be. Far away from the techno base you will find the origin Ibiza, including lots of trekking and biking trails through pine forests, little hills and miracle bays. Luckily you don’t have to be afraid of dangerous animals, because on Ibiza there are no poisonous spiders or snakes. The multifaceted flora makes you wonder about lavender, wild herbs, bizarre looking cactus and the typical Iberian fig trees. The old salt fields “Ses Salinas”, which were cultivated in the middle ages, are a bird-conservation park today. A special trip to Cala Benirras, in the north of the island, should be planned for Sundays.
At sundown a couple of musicians show their drumming art. Before darkness you should go out to take a trip snorkelling around the rocks which are just offshore. The underwater world is just fascinating there. Discover Ibiza with its lots of specialities and the stunning nature. Holidays just can’t be more relaxing so cruise through Ibiza with car hire and simply enjoy this wonderful island.
