Ibiza, a western Mediterranean island off the coast of Spain, has long been a getaway for Bohemians, hippies, eccentrics and rock-star celebrities, attracted by its warm weather, fine beaches, whitewashed houses, secluded bays, cliffs, and picturesque hilly terrain.

A brief history about Ibiza

Ibiza is one of the oldest urban settlements in the Western Mediterranean and is part of the Balearic Islands, it was inhabited and occupied by Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, and the Catalans. During the following centuries, it was marked by plundering and marauding by pirates. Isolation meant the island’s economy remained based on farming and fishing. The island was transformed dramatically when Ibiza began to attract large-scale tourism in the sixties. The food and culture reflect a strong relationship with the sea, as well Ibiza maintains a solid Catholic tradition. An influx of Bohemians in the 1930s and 1960s added another dimension to the island.
