Ibiza Town is well worth a visit, especially if you are staying nearby. The Marina’s Golden Mile couldn’t be more different from the cobbled street charm of Dalt Villa (old town), an immaculately preserved example of a Renaissance walled town. Within the walls of the old town you will find a myriad of restaurants, boutiques, markets, bars and top-class galleries, such as The MACE, Ibiza’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
The town is flanked on either side by two utterly different stretches of beach. Playa d’en Bossa offers high octane nightlife and a glut of five-star hotels. This is not really ideal for families and if you are travelling with kids, Talamanca beach to the North of the town is a much better option. Talamanca is a local family favourite with relatively few hotels, making it popular for winter walks. From here, excellent roads traversing the island’s 571 sq km mean that nothing is much more than an hour’s drive away.
