Ibiza or Eivissa (in Catalan and officially) is one of the Balearic Islands, a group of autonomous communities of Spain. Known for being a party hotspot, Ibiza's part in the post-1950s package holiday boom mean there is something for everyone on this island.
Long beaches, big nightclubs, historical towns, and Mediterranean sun mean Ibiza makes a great holiday for families and couples of all ages. Its much-loved status amongst European holidaymakers is testament to the Eivissa way of life - relaxed and easy-going, but with vivid enjoyment throughout.
The island is 153 km off the eastern coast of Spain, situated in the Mediterranean Sea. The Island is split into five Ajuntaments, as noted in Cities above. Their role is much the same as a council: providing local government, services, and maintenance for both citizens and tourists. Sant Joan de Labritja occupies the north, with Santa Eulària des Riu in the east, Sant Josep de sa Talaia in the south, and Sant Antoni de Portmany in the west. Eivissa Vila (Ibiza Town) tucks in-between Santa Eulària and Sant Josep - but its small size shouldn't detract from its position as the third-highest populated municipality in all of the Balearics.
