Dalt Vila
The old walled city of Dalt Vila is an ideal place to start exploring on foot. The walls were built during the reign of Felipe II in order to defend the island against the invasion of pirates from the Barbary Coast. Winding alleys and cobbled streets hide walled gardens and cool shaded courtyards and many of the city's restaurants and bars.

The steep trek to the cathedral is lined with artists' studios and gift shops selling souvenirs and locally made handicrafts, which provide a welcome respite from the climb. Looking down from the battlements by the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Snows, there are panoramic views of the red tiled cupolas of the 16th century church of Santo Domingo. From here it's also possible to spot the statue of General Joaquin Vara de Rey, the Ibicenco hero of the Cuban War, at the centre of the Main Square.

Ibiza's Beaches

Ibiza features 18kms of natural sandy and pebble beaches all fringed by clear waters. The many coves and inlets dotted around the coast offer everything from diving, quiet seclusion and upbeat beach bars with live DJ's; in addition many of the beaches even offer a history lesson as many feature the remains of past civilisations with crumbling defence towers and other signs of the island's heritage.

For those who enjoy walking and rambling, the Ibizan coast is an interesting and often challenging terrain to explore with many routes and paths offering an off-the-beaten-track experience and a chance to see a unique view of the island.
