There are a wealth of places to visit in Ibiza, from top class art museums to the remains of ancient Bronze age settlements. Many of the highlights are in Ibiza Town, but to see the best that Ibiza has to offer, a car or scooter is recommended.
Thanks to the varied history of Ibiza, you will find reminders of the Romans, Moors and Spanish conquerors throughout the island, from watch towers to castles and ruins to churches. Much of this history is documented in a number of museums.
But it is not just man-made artefacts that are worth seeking out. Ibiza is blessed with fabulous scenery, from the mountains in the south to the salt flats in the east and the olive groves in the north. A number of Natural Parks have been created, which provide not only protection to the land but informative guides and trails to follow. Some of this natural beauty are ear-marked as beauty spots rather than Natural Parks. In the west of Ibiza you will find a rejuvenated wine growing industry, and a visit to a vineyard is highly recommended.
Ibiza is home to a vibrant arts scene as evidenced by the number of excellent art galleries and museums found throughout the island. There are plenty of small independent galleries and studios that you can visit and of course the hippy markets have a whole host of artists looking to sell their work. The hippy heritage of the island is particularly evident in the art scene.
Of course, one of the popular things for visitors to do whilst on holiday is shop, so read on to find out about where the hotspots are, and what kind of souvenirs you may like to bring home.
