how to move around
In every town you can just walk around, if you have a car just find a parking and enjoy the town, even the big towns can easily be explored on foot.
Local buses / taxis
The local buses are very convenient to reach other towns and beaches. The bus station in Ibiza Town is 10’ walk from marina. But you’ll also find many buses from other resorts (Sant Eulalia, San Antoni etc)
For some areas (S.Antoni) you’ll find lots of buses while some other may have 1 or 2 daily.
Check also the DiscoBus that runs all night and connects the famous Ibiza clubs, some of them are located on isolated areas between Ibiza Town and San Antony so the bus is very helpful especially when you are drunk ;)
Taxi is also a good alternative, the distances are short and if you are 3-4 people it will be a good bargain.
There are also smaller boats that connect Ibiza town with beaches(cala Pada, playa d’en Bossa etc), other towns (Santa Eulalia) or small resorts near Ibiza town (like Talamanca) so they are a nice alternative if you don’t want to walk.
We stayed at Ibiza Town but one day we rented a car to check smaller towns, some nice beaches etc Ibiza is a small island anyway and you’ll probably can see everything in one day (unless you want to spend time on the beach, in this case just take a boat to a beach). The roads are well signposted and didn’t have any problem to find our way. During the night we preferred to be back in town though because the roads were dark. Parking in Ibiza Town is difficult to find, hopefully we had a parking right next to our hotel.
We didn’t prebook, just checked some companies near our hotel and picked the cheapest one. But this was in May, during high season you HAVE TO book in advance because there is a big demand for cars.
how to go there
Of course most visitors arrive by plane. The airport of Ibiza (IBZ) is located 7km southwest from Ibiza Town. It’s a modern airport covering hundreds of flights from all over Europe during the warmer months but also flights with mainland and Palma de Mallorca through out the year
You can take a taxi from the airport (about 18euros to Ibiza Town, 22euro to San Antoni, 24euros to Santa Eulalia), choose a shuttle bus or take a local bus (bus10 for Eivissa but there are also for other areas), the bus stop is located directly outside the arrivals hall. Don’t forget they use catalan names for the towns so Ibiza Town is called Eivissa.
For those who don’t mind to spend some extra hours Ibiza is connected by boat with mainland (Barcelona, Denia) but also with other Balearic islands (Mallorca, Menorca) but the most popular one is the ferry service to Formentera island, many people go there for a day trip. For tickets go to Estacion Maritima, the port is just next to Old Town.
going to discos
There are three ways to reach discos at night: you can rent a car for the whole week and use it at nights(not so frequent), you can take a bus or you can call a taxi...
At first we thought the cheapest way was taking the bus...it's not true!!!!!
Disco buses are always late and crowded, the tickets are expensive...if you find some friends (and you can be sure it's the easiest thing in Ibiza) to share the taxi with...believe me that it's much much better! You'll get there in time (remember discos are crowded from 2.30 a.m. so it has no sense getting there earlier) and you won't get stressed! Of course you can do this if you're in playa d'en Bossa, Figueretes, Ibiza town or near there...if you're farther you will spend more!!
- School Holidays
There's not much to say...if you wanna go around the island and visit all the wonderful Playas and Calas you should rent a motorbike or a car...if you are not alone, cars are less expensive,but maybe you'll have more fun with motorbikes...
