1. Dalt Vila Visit
The walled city of Dalt Vila, should be one of the points required for all visitors to Ibiza for its impressive walls and the beauty and tranquility that gives a stroll through the ancient cobbled streets. But you can do much more things than just walking the streets of Old Ibiza, and visit the Cathedral of Ibiza, closer to the viewpoint of the cathedral, have a snack or lunch in any of the terraces. However, the slopes of the hills makes it a difficult road to travel during the day in the warmer months, so some choose to visit at night, with a totally different atmosphere.
Exploring Dalt Vila is advisable not only to get to know a little about the history of Ibiza, but to enjoy a unique ride. The views change completely depending on day and night, so we recommend visiting at different times of the day. For beach lovers, visiting Dalt Vila is one of the things you can do on rainy or cloudy days.
2. The island of Es Vedra
Surely the island of Es Vedra is one of the most famous images of Ibiza. Almost 400 meters high it rises almost vertically from the sea, the magic of Es Vedra captivates everybody who sees it. And it’s not only an area for tourists: many locals need to see the island from time to time to feel protected by the energy emanating from this point.
Worth a visit not only for Es Vedra: the area is of incomparable beauty with a natural environment of great pine forests. In addition, there are more things to do in the area, such as visiting the small town of Es Cubells or bathing on the beach of Cala d'Hort.
3. Swim at the beach
Of course you've already thought of this when setting foot on the island. The beaches of Ibiza are one of the bests in the Mediterranean Sea and some of them are listed as one of the best beaches in the world.
In addition, the variety of beaches on the island, invite to do much more than swimming and sunbathing: scuba diving, jumping into the water from small cliffs, jet skiing or having lunch or dinner at a restaurant on the beach.
The Benirràs beach alone is worth a visit, but to experience the festival of the drums is one of the original things that can still be seen in Ibiza's legacy left to us by the hippies on the island.
Though it began spontaneously by a group of hippies who found this place a magical point thanks to the light projected from the sea, now it is a special event and Benirràs has become a must-see for anyone. By the way, if you want to feel more like a hippie, you can also participate by playing a drum.
5. Living like a celebrity
In Ibiza the summer combines many cultures, a lot of people from different places with different lifestyles: clubbers eager to party, artists and craft vendors and famous international stars.
If you want to, it is easy to see celebrities by sitting at the next table in a restaurant, on the beach or even going for a drink or going to the same club. Ibiza concentrates all the players of the tabloids and you can see them easily on the island.
6. Dancing peasant
If you like traditional dances and the culture of Ibiza, you should see a performance of ball pages, the old Ibiza courtship dance, a ritual of uncertain origin. The ball pages is the traditional dance of the Balearic Islands, which includes much of the folklore of Ibiza, and Formentera.
And not only the ball pages (or folk dances) are of great importance to the cultural, but everything that surrounds them: the unique musical instruments, songs and traditional costumes of great complexity.
7. Formentera Visit
You probably already have thought of it, but make a trip to Formentera, it is one of the great things you can do if you're going to Ibiza.

8. The sunset
Another great attraction is the beautiful sunset! If you spend the day at the beach and want to go out at night, you will certainly have a time gap in between... Ibiza is the place where there are always things to do!
On the west coast of Ibiza you have the best magical view of the sunset as the sun melts into the sea, in a natural spectacle that transforms the sky and the sea in beautiful colors. You can see the sunset from a mythical place like Café del Mar, from beaches as Benirràs, living the hippie atmosphere, or find yourself a secret place to see it in solitude.
