History and modernity come together in this city founded by the Phoenicians 27 centuries ago and today known as ‘Vila’, capital of Ibiza. Most of the island's cultural and social events take place here throughout the year, plus it’s full of places where you can enjoy local gastronomy, leisure activities and amazing heritage.
Nestled beneath the city walls, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the old seafaring quarter runs down to the harbour with its maze of narrow streets bursting with sounds and colours. The city has grown over time but has preserved the diverse and extrovert character of the Mediterranean nations who have been passing through for centuries. Today it continues to provide a warm welcome to modern travellers arriving in this luminous Babel.
In the summer months, Ibiza is an open city that still shows traces of its Phoenician past, with bustling, colourful markets and equally colourful people. The city’s maritime district is a creative jumble of voices, aromas and rhythms, with a wealth of places to eat, listen to music, have a drink or just wander around and get a feel for its incredible character. Like an oasis of tranquillity, nearby Talamanca beach is a peaceful spot with a wide range of places to eat and take time out before returning to city life.
At nightfall, the seafront promenade area on the other side of the bay really comes into its own. Alongside luxury beach clubs and yachting marinas, guests flock to the most exclusive VIP parties on the Mediterranean held in the city’s internationally renowned nightlife venues, providing an impromptu catwalk parade of the very latest fashions and trends.
Our work is focused on making Fomento del Turismo de Ibiza an increasingly open forum for debate that draws together a wide range of interests, agrees strategies and stimulates professionals, workers, companies and organisations from all the island's economic and social spheres to benefit from membership.
We want Fomento de Ibiza to be an open forum for debate, one that agglutinates common interests, reaches a consensus as to the strategies that should be followed, and encourages professionals, workers, companies and entities from all the island’s economic and social walks of life to work together
