About Ibiza

Ibiza owns a reputation as a boisterous party town where hit the beaches by day and dance all night. But this is only part of the story for this picturesque island, which is part of Balearics near the coast of Spain.

The town was founded by the Carthaginians around the sixth century B.C. and ruled in turn by the Romans, Arabs and Catalans. Evidence of these periods can be seen in the Dalt Vila, or old town, which boasts many historical structures and relics and two notable museums. The medieval walled city and its Gothic cathedral became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999.

During the day, Ibiza is an ideal place to explore, with trendy shops, interesting restaurants and a growing number of luxury hotels and spas in its beautiful harbor. In addition, the island boasts 56 sandy beaches around its coastline, making it the perfect place to simply relax.

More about Ibiza

Why go to Ibiza?

Pros:

Ibiza lives up to its reputation as a party town where visitors sunbathe all day and dance all night

Cons:

Tickets for some of the most popular clubs can cost nearly $100 each, and many ships leave port before nightlife picks up

Bottom Line:

Although it's a party port, Ibiza also offers shopping and cultural pursuits

Ibiza Cruise Port Facilities?

There is no terminal building in Ibiza. When you disembark, you are immediately in the town. Wi-Fi is available in most of the cafes and coffee shops. There is also a Telepost -- which exchanges money and features a public phone and Internet access -- near the dock. Ibiza is wonderful for strolling. Cruisers can begin shopping or eating almost immediately upon disembarkation, and the little shops on the side streets near the pier are of great interest. The waterfront along the Avenue Andanes is a pedestrian-friendly road, one side lined with boutiques and restaurants and the other a boat-filled harbor. The street offers lots of places to sit and people-watch.

Good to Know?

The cobblestone streets. Wear comfortable, cushioned shoes, especially for walking up to and around Dalt Vila. Also, the siesta is alive and well in Ibiza. Many shops and museums close mid-afternoon for several hours, so check before you go.

While Ibiza has many daytime activities, the island is well-known for its nightlife -- but not all ships stay overnight. If you are interested in the nightlife, check the hours that your ship will be in the port. Most clubs don't open until 10 p.m., and the festivities continue until the early morning hours.

Walking in the city is safe, but beware of pickpockets on the beaches. Don't leave your valuables on a towel and go in for a swim.

Getting Around?

On Foot: The entire town begins at the pier and except for the hilly Dalt Vila section, everything is an easy walk.

You cannot enter Dalt Vila with a bus or shuttle. People with mobility issues can rent a taxi to take them around the island, but they cannot enter the Dalt Vila area with a car.

By Taxi: Cabs are generally available. In the summer season, cab and bus services to travel outside of the city are available, but waits can be longer than an hour.

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

The euro is the official currency. For updated currency conversion figures, visit www.oanda.com or www.xe.com. There are currency exchanges and ATMs at the port and throughout the city. ATMs are the cheapest way to acquire euros. Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere. U.S. dollars or other currencies are generally not accepted.

Language?

Catalan is the language of Ibiza, but English is spoken in the shops, restaurants and clubs.

Where You're Docked?

Cruise ships dock at Port d'Eivissa. (Eivissa is the Catalan name for Ibiza), on the edge of the town, just a few steps from shops and restaurants. The entire city is within an easy walk of the pier, although the Dalt Vila area is dramatically hilly.

On a day-time visit to Ibiza and there is relatively little to do, (its a small island) but exploring the Dal Vila is great if not a work to in itself.. If your looking for a beach, walk over to Talamanca beach Read More
