The capital of the island, Eivissa, is one of the most beautiful cities on the island. During the day it offers visitors a lot of impressive city sights. At night it turns into one big dance floor.
Eivissa by day
The city is divided into two parts - the Upper Town - the historic part of Dalt Vila located on a hill, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and the lower part of Eivissa, vibrant with life, hundreds of pubs, cafes and souvenir shops for tourists. Walking in Dalt Vila is relatively tiring because you have to climb a lot on a cobbled slopes but it captures the nice atmosphere of the city. It is worth visiting the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Snows (patron of Ibiza), Portal de ses Taules and the main square Dalt Vila - Placa de Vila. It is also worth going to the Sa Penya district and go to the Sa Torre defense tower guarding the port from where there is a view of the bay.
Eivissa by night
Below is a brief description of the clubs in Eivissa but it is worth remembering to try out street fun, very popular in the neighborhoods of Sa Penya and Sa Marina. Here are the main Clubs:
- "Privilege" - the largest club for 10,000 visitors - famous for its events in the foam
- “Hï Ibiza” in place of the famous "Space" consisting of 3 rooms
- "El Divino" club located near the port, more elegant
- "Pacha" one of the best clubs on the island, located opposite one of the most exclusive hotels on the island
- “Ushuaïa” is an open air club located on the main promenade at Playa d'en Bossa
Between the clubs run special Disco Buses especially for clubbers.
If you are seeking an all-day-long party you need to visit "Bora Bora" at Playa d’en Bossa. The music there plays all day and people are dancing on the beach.
Practical hints for sailors:
Eivissa is a very expensive city and you experience that also in marina prices. In the harbor there are 3 marinas: Marina Botafoch, Marina Nueva and Club Nautico. In the latter there are hardly any places and in the first two we recommend reserving marinas in advance - by phone or via the Internet. If you have not done it before - after entering the port it is worth calling individual marinas on the VHF 9 channel asking if they have free space. The marina prices are deadly high - In Marina Botafoch yachts around 44-46 feet costs 232 EUR per night and additionally water, electricity, toilet and showers. In Marina Nueva prices are similar, however water and electricity are already included in the fee. The supermarket is close to marinas, although the prices are also quite high there. When we look around in marinas we will notice that we are surrounded by luxurious motor yachts - well, Eivissa is definitely the place for VIPs.
