What to see & do
Diving in Ibiza - Ibiza has plenty of qualified diving schools in the island that offer courses for various levels of diving experiences. The clear waters surrounding the island allow for excellent diving conditions in various cave and wreck diving sites. One of the most popular sites is the wreck of the cargo ferry Don Pedro that sank near the Ibiza port in July 2007.
Shopping in Markets - Ibiza has plenty of shop and markets that offer various merchandise, with beautiful crafts made in the island and some items imported from other parts of the world. Typical Ibizan fashion, called Adlib fashion, and designer labels will delight any shopaholic traveller. The best markets include the Es Canar Hippy Market held every Wednesday on the east coast and the Las Dalias Hippie Market every Saturday in San Carlos. Other popular shopping centres are Hoal Hola (Mercat Vell) for vintage items, Kurru Kurru (Plaza del Parque) for Ibiza clothing, and Revolver (Calle Bisbe Azara) for designer labels. Calle de la Virgen is known for its funky fashion boutiques and other random stores
Bar Hopping in the West End - Near the San Antonio centre is a long, wide street lined with plenty of bars and clubs. Entrance and drinks tend to be quite pricey, but the clubs often feature some of the best DJs in the world. Some of the most popular clubs are Jockey Club on Salinas beach, Amnesia, Space Nightclub, and the most expensive but perhaps the best club in Ibiza, Pacha.
How to get around
Ibiza has several modes of local public transportation available. The cities of San Antonio, Ibiza Town, and Santa Eulària des Riu are actually small enough for visitors to explore without need for any other mode of transportation other than walking, but intercity buses are available if you want to explore. Car rental is also an option, as long as you have a driver's license and can handle driving on a road with terrible local drivers. If not, taxis are also readily available and are a convenient way of getting around the island. It is advisable for visitors not to get a fixed-price taxi at the airport; instead, queue for a much cheaper licensed taxi.
