Things to know before visiting Ibiza
As Ibiza is a Spanish island, Spain’s immigration laws are in force. US citizens don’t need to have a visa to have a vacation in Ibiza for a period of up to 90 days. If you would like to stay longer than that, you’ll need to obtain a visa from your nearest Spanish consulate or embassy before your flight to Ibiza. Also make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months and that you have at least two blank pages for entry and exit stamps. If you have a medical condition and need to bring medication from the US, you should also carry the prescription so that you can show it if asked by Spanish Customs officers on arrival. If your prescription is for opioids, you should first contact the Spanish embassy and inquire whether that particular drug can be legally brought into Spain.
If you want to rent a car while you’re staying in Ibiza, you’ll need to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) and carry it in addition to your regular driver’s license. The currency in use in Ibiza, as in all of Spain and most countries of the European Union, is the euro. Banknotes are in use and range in value from 5 euros to 500 euros. There are also coins called cents or eurocents. These range from one cent to two euros in value. US dollar banknotes can easily be exchanged for euros at any money exchange service at the airport or elsewhere in the towns. With everything in order, you can be on your way with our excellent travel deals with a flight from New York to Ibiza or a flight from Los Angeles to Ibiza

What to do in Ibiza?
Ibiza is famed for its party atmosphere. Countless nightclubs in many parts of Ibiza attract revelers to party all night to a backdrop of loud and exciting techno, drum and bass and trance, delivered via the capable hands of local DJs, and specially invited, well-known, international DJs. Boat parties and beach parties have become increasingly popular, too. The town of San Antonio is highly recommended for its vibrant rave scene and also for its spectacular sunset views. Sunset strip in the town is a famous and highly acclaimed haven for cocktail-sipping tourists relaxing in the bars in the early evening before heading off for some more serious partying.
If all day and all night partying isn’t your thing, or even if you need a rest from it, it’s no problem. Ibiza has many other attractions that are worth visiting. The 15th century Ibiza Cathedral in Ibiza Town is interesting to look around and to learn something of its history. So too is the Necropolis of Puig des Molins. The interior of the island has many peaceful and charming towns that are a delight to visit. For more active daytime fun, try out some water-sports at San Antonio’s excellent beaches. Paralsailing, jet skiing and more are popular activities here. Whatever your tastes, Ibiza has a lot to offer, and you can enjoy it all with our excellent travel deals
What to visit around Ibiza?
A vacation in Ibiza doesn't restrict you to just the island of Ibiza itself. If you want a change from what Ibiza has to offer, you can take a trip to Ibiza's smaller southern neighbor, Formentera. Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands. It lies to the south of Ibiza and it makes for an interesting day trip by boat. It has long stretches of clean sandy beaches and clear water. The island’s nightlife is far less wild than that of Ibiza, but there are excellent daytime beach facilities and watersports. Apart from swimming in the warm and inviting waters of the Med, you can enjoy snorkeling, sailing and much more in a terrific environment - or simply find a quiet spot to relax and sunbathe.
What to eat in Ibiza?
Because of its huge tourist population Ibiza’s restaurants offer a wide variety of food and refreshments including local Catalan, Spanish and international cuisines. The international range is what you’d expect in any American or European restaurant, including pizzas, steak, fries and burgers but the local cuisine is interesting with dishes such as bullit de peix, which is a tasty fish stew, and arros de matances, which is an appetizing rice, squid and pork dish with peppers, tomatoes and olive oil. Local sweets known as flaons are also very popular in Ibiza. Ibizan cuisine is terrific and our unbeatable travel package to Ibiza will give you a chance to savour the best of it
