The majority of which are found on beautiful beaches; some only being accessible by boat. Ibiza is a gorgeous place, perfect for a sailing, sunbathing and relaxing on a fully kitted out boat. A rental boat holiday in Ibiza will allow you to forget your daily life and completely relax. </p> <h2>What to see in Ibiza</h2> <p>Most popular places to go out at night are concentrated in two areas: Playa d'en Bossa and San Antonio. Both places have vibrant nightclubs, restaurants and bars for all tastes where you can taste the delicious cuisine of the Balearic Islands, and some luxury cocktails. The historic center of Ibiza town, on the other hand, is an ideal place to get to know what Ibiza´s actual culture is like, enjoy traditional restaurants, and shopping at dozens of shops around the Cathedral Virgen de las Nieves in Ibiza. Some of the places to visit in Ibiza are: </p> <h4>San José<h4> <p>San José is a Spanish municipality located in the southeast of the island of Ibiza, where there is a large presence of beach tourism. </p> <h4>Cubells<h4> <p>This is a village and parish in the municipality of San José. It is located in the southern part of the island. A tourist attraction of this place is the church of Our Lady of Cubells. </p> <h4>Our Lady of Jesus<h4> <p>It is a village formed from a fifteenth century church built on the site, which later was expanded. </p> <h4>Sant Llorenc de Balàfia<h4> <p>This is a village in the municipality of San Juan Bautista, on the northeastern side of the island.

Here are our 5 favourites to visit when you rent a boat in Ibiza: </p> <h4>Cala Salada</h4> <p>This cove, 4 kilometres from San Antoni de Portmany, is one of the most visited and valued on Ibiza. The beaches are often rather full of tourists: something that you can avoid with rental in Ibiza if you go yachting in one of our Ibizan yacht charters and find yourself some more elusive coves and beaches. </p> <h4>Cala de San Vicente</h4> <p>This cove, situated in San Juan Bautista, to the north of Ibiza is a beautiful beach, sheltered from the wind by the vegetation covered mountains. It is made up of a large, sandy beach where the sea is calm and blue which is perfect for practicing all manner of watersports such as windsurfing or hopping on a banana boat for a really fun time! </p> <h4>Cala Conta</h4> <p>This cove, joint with Racó d’en Xic is in San Antonio and has two openings opposite two small islands. It’s found on the western side of the island and its turquoise sea is crystal clear. One of the main spectacles of this cove are the sunsets, which you can enjoy from whichever point in the sea you choose on a hired boat or yacht charter in Ibiza. </p> <h4>Cala Gracioneta</h4> <p>This beach is located close to San Antonio, and is characterised by its small size and stunning views. It is rectangular in shape, with fine white sand and surrounded by pine forest and the typical traditional buildings of Ibiza. Its location means it’s sheltered from the wind providing calm waters; perfect for diving. The advantage of this cove is the lack of tourists making it ideal as a relaxing destination for a break whilst you are on one of our sailing boat charters, perhaps you could rent the stunning Sunseeker. </p> <h4>Cala Vadella<h4> <p>This cove on the south-western part of the island is very popular with yacht charter tourists, especially for those looking for a romantic sunset from the deck of their boat. Nevertheless, this isn’t its only draw. Its position, surrounded by pine trees makes it look like a natural swimming pool, which also lends itself to water sports such as diving. </p> <p>These are only some examples but, in general, choose whichever cove you wish, a boat rental in Ibiza will not disappoint you either way. It is a genuine paradise where you can enjoy your boat to the fullest, relaxing, watching sunsets or enjoying water sports. </p> <h4>Currency and language<h4> <p>The currency used in Ibiza, as in the rest of Spain, is the Euro (€). In Ibiza there are two official languages, Spanish and Catalan. </p> <h2>Natural Parks</h2> <h4>Ses Salines Natural Park of Ibiza and Formentera<h4> <p>It is located between the two Pityuses natural parks and 75% of its surface is under the sea. It is possible to find an underwater meadow of Posidonia Oceanica, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. </p> <h4>The Natural Reserve of Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell and the islands of Poniente: <h4> <p>This reserve is located in the western and southwestern part of Ibiza, and it has a great diversity in the landscape, its islands, its fauna and flora. </p> <h2>Gastronomy</h2> <p>Because Ibiza is an island, its gastronomy is local and has its own style and take on typical Mediterranean food. Among the most outstanding dishes are the Pancuit, a local garlic soup, with tomatoes and eggs; the stingray in sauce with almonds; or the Flao, a cheesecake with a light touch of peppermint. </p> <p>Just as its neighboring islands, Ibiza offers an unlimited number of opportunities to enjoy your sailing holiday to the fullest. Sailing through its waters is a great idea to enjoy some wonderful locations like Menorca or Formentera and experience the culture of Spain. The white island is not just about parties, it is beautiful too, which is why it is a fantastic idea to hire a luxury boat or charter a yacht in Ibiza.
