How to get around

How to travel around Ibiza

There are loads of options when it comes to travelling around the island of Ibiza – the one you choose depends on where it is you want to go and what you want to do. Hedonists might be based in a single spot, like Playa d'en Bossa or Ibiza Town, which means you can usually get by using local taxis or just walking. Those keen to find villa rentals out in the Ibiza countryside, along the rugged north shore or close to secluded beaches, might be better off renting a car. Hire outlets are plentiful in the airport and main towns –remember to drive on the right-hand side of the road. For other destinations there's also an aqua ferry service, dropping you straight at spots like Figueretas, Cala Conta or Cala Salada to name a few.
