Ibiza's got a reputation as a world-class party town and it's packed with the super clubs (Amnesia, Pacha, La Bodega, Space and Aura) that guarantee a memorable night out and ensure you go home with plenty of bragging rights.
But if you're not into dancing till dawn, Ibiza has plenty for the holiday maker looking to recharge their - and their family's - batteries.
The island has a gorgeous coastline dotted with little coves. There's nearly 20km of soft, sandy beaches. Cala Jondal in San José on the south-west edge of Ibiza, is considered the most relaxed and the most family friendly, but watch out for the pebbles!
In the south-west of Ibiza lies Cala D’Hort. It's close to Cala Vadella. This soft, safe beach has an amazing view of mysterious, legend-laden Es Vedra rock and your fellow bathers will be families and hipsters.
If you are going for a blingtastic break, the only beach you should bask on is Las Salinas in Playa d'en Bossa. It's on Ibiza's southernmost point and attracts the party set. If you want to get away from that for a while, there are hiking paths in the nearby conservation grounds.
Away from the beaches, there's a wealth of culture to soak up. Eivissa is the capital. It's a gorgeous town of narrow streets and ancient monuments. Dalt Vila is the oldest part of this town. It is still encircled by the walls that were constructed in the 16th century to keep Turkish pirates out! Today, there are no pirates, just a wonderful outdoor museum. Getting into Dalt Vila is via the Portal de Ses Taules drawbridge, but you can also enter via the Mercat Vell (Old Market) and the Portal Nou, beside the Reina Sofia Park.
Some of the must-sees include the Cathedral; Santo Domingo’s Church; San Ciriaco’s Chapel and the Archaelogical Museum, which houses artifacts dating from Prehistory to the Islamic Middle Ages.
The Museum of Contemporary Art, the Puget Museum and the Madina Yabisa Interpretation Centre (a stunning space which tells the story of Eivissa's history through visual technology) are located here too.
Once your culture vulture has been sated, it's back outdoors! Ibiza is considered to be Europe’s number one diving location (the Don Pedro is the biggest shipwreck in Europe - in recreational dive limits). And cycling, kayaking, hiking and water sports are available throughout the island.
