When it comes to choosing which island to visit first, then the answer is always Ibiza. This island is mostly branded as the parting island of Spain. This for sure is not a lie, but Ibiza can offer everything, not only parties. The urban area is mostly filled with cafes, restaurants and clubs, but just for a minute of driving in every other direction you can explore the other face of Ibiza. Sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and pine forests are representing the real face of this beautiful Balearic island.
To start a perfect day in Ibiza is to find a place to watch the sunrise. You can do that anywhere on the east coast but we recommend you to go on Platja d’en Bossa. After that be ready to start your daily adventure. If you are traveling with your family and your kids then be sure to visit Piruleto Park in Santa Eulalia. It is an indoor fun park with all kinds of activities. If you and your family are more of a thrill seekers then Air Zone Ibiza Park is the real deal for you.

Local dishes are offered among all the restaurants and eateries here, so whatever you pick you wont regret.
To watch the sunset you also wont make a mistake if you pick the Ibiza Town or if you choose something more exotic like Cala Conta. After the sun is set, then the nightlife of Ibiza begins.
