Luxury Retreats, an Expert in Ibiza vacations. The northern coast of the island is the quietest, with craggy coves, deserted beaches shaded by pine trees and crystal clear waters it is easy to escape the crowds and find a little slice of paradise. Ibiza is busiest during the warm summer months, from late May to early October, but the island is particularly beautiful in early spring when the almond trees are blossoming.
The island is easily reached, with flights into Ibiza International Airport from cities throughout Europe. There are also ferries from the cities of Valencia, and Barcelona on the Spanish mainland, and from Palma on the nearby island of Majorca. Another favorite spot is Cala Conta, where the Sunset Ashram beach bar hosts live bands who play as the skies turn shades of amber and scarlet. As you might expect for a Mediterranean island with so many fantastic beaches, Ibiza is an excellent spot for scuba diving.
With clear, warm water, the conditions here are ideal for amateurs and more experienced divers alike, and the area is home to submerged shipwrecks, underwater caves and grassy seabeds, which play host to all sorts of fantastic wildlife.
A popular day trip destination for anyone vacationing in Ibiza, Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Isles and can be reached by a short ferry trip or by private water taxi. Wandering the winding streets of the town is a feast for the eyes.
If you tire of the panoramic views across the Es Freus strait to the red rooftops and verdant pine forests of Formentera, turn into a local gallery or the Ibiza Museum of Contemporary Art. Alongside temporary exhibitions, the museum houses a striking collection of contemporary pieces in an imposing, yet calm, former military bunker, parts of which date from the sixteenth century.
Afterwards, settle into a wicker chair on one of the town's many secluded squares and order a jug of refreshing sangria.
