Hola, I was thinking that most of you think in crazy, 24/7 party when you hear Ibiza. There´s nothing wrong with that, ´cause almost everybody thinks that and the island was known because of that. I´ll now try to show you the other side of the island, a side full of beauty, quiet little beaches, an lovely scenery…
Let´s star with the beaches. Besides Playa_Den_Bossa.jpg, the biggest and most crowded beache, imagine a Miami´s South Beach or a Santa Marta´s El Rodadero, Ibiza has some really nice beaches that are less visited, also in August. One and my favorite is Punta Galeras. It´s located near San Antonio (20 min from Ibiza Town aprox.) and the way altough well shown, it´s hard to make if you don´t have a car. There´s no sand what so ever, it´s just a cliff, which you have to walk downin order to get to the sea. It is the beach to practice FKK (nudity) for excelence!! Also a wonderful place for scuba diving and snorkeling!
Then without going too far from the city, on the road to Sant Josep there´s is a little “Cala” (Catalan for little bay), wich has no name or simply I don´t know it. It is tiny, only 10 people can fin in there, but Ibiza is full of Calas.
We could also go to Salinas…
Or take a 25 min boat trip to Formentera? May be watch a sunset??
And please don´t skip Cala D´Hort, which besides it´s beauty
has Es Vedra, the huge Rock in the water, which personaly is one of the most amazing places I´ve ever been to.
It doesn´t matter if it´s in the day…
…or at sunset
Ok enough of beaches, what about the old city, Dalt Vila? It´s a very old city, more or less built in the Roman empire. It´s surrounded by high stone walls, which were built in order to protect the city agains the Phoenicians, who were actually the first pirates of the sea.
Inside the walls, the city has narrow stone streets where only pedestrians can access. On the top of the city there´s a nice cathedral. In the night the whole city is illuminated by a nice soft light. There are also plenty of restaurants in this old city where you can have a nice a romantic dinner with someone special.

Anyhow, if you are ever thinking of comig to Ibiza, don´t let party get to your head and blind you from all the other great things this Island has to offer you, try going to Santa Eulalia, Santa Gertrudis and all the other little towns in the island, belive me , they are worth it.
P.S. If you have any question don´t doubt in contact me =)
