What is Ibiza?
Ibiza (Catalan: Eivissa) is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea, belonging to Spain. With Formentera, it is one of the two Pine Islands. Major cities are Ibiza, Santa Eulària des Riu and Sant Antoni de Portmany.
The Island of Ibiza has been well-known for its summer club parties which attract large numbers of tourists, but the island and the Spanish Tourist Office has been working to shed the prevailing “sex-and-alcohol” image in order to promote more family-oriented tourism. Noted clubs include Space, Pacha, Privilege (ex Ku), Amnesia, DC10, Eden and Es Paradis. It is also home to the ‘West End’ party district of Sant Antoni, a popular stop for many tourists. [Wiki]
