Villas, apartments, holiday rentals and vacation homes in Eivissa town
Situated on the east coast, the capital and city port of Ibiza is a partygoer's paradise. The energy of this region pulsates through the streets with bars and nightclubs brimming with eclectic crowds. But much more than being a city that never sleeps, Eivissa (as it's pronounced in Catalan), comes with a fascinating history and a peaceful side too. Like yin and yang, Eivissa is a town of contrasts - from its vibrant nightlife scene to the tranquility of its luxury yoga retreats and, of course, beautiful architecture. Since 650 BC, Phoenicians, Romans, Moors and finally Catalans have left behind many historical remnants which can be found mostly in the cobbled streets of the old town.
There are some stunning natural beaches on the island, with 25 Blue Flag beaches in total. Most turn into nightclubs after sundown, while some may start the party a little earlier. Eivissa caters mainly to couples and singles who are looking for an energetic atmosphere and a livelier holiday experience, but there are some tranquil, family-friendly resorts to explore too. Families with young children may find that the neighbouring regions of Santa Eulalia or San Juan offer more seclusion and privacy, where you can enjoy a more relaxing and peaceful beach break.
Eivissa is known for its bars and world-class restaurants where you'll find international and local cuisines, complete with a warm service. The Old Town offers plenty of romantic spots, while those looking for luxury flock to the newly developed Marina Botafoch with its upscale eateries and luxury cruisers. Boutiques, bohemian flea markets and charming independent shops are scattered all around this vibrant city with its traditional whitewashed walls. Locals here are like the Mediterranean climate - pleasant and very welcoming. Experience Ibiza and everything it has to offer with an apartment or villa in the heart of it all.

A beginner's guide to a villa or apartment rental in Eivissa
Eivissa is the flourishing Ibizan capital with a rich history behind it. The region is famous for its wild parties, wide beaches, serene yoga retreats, fashionable restaurants and mix of luxury and traditional shopping areas. The town is located on the eastern coast between Santa Eulalia and the airport. Eivissa is the largest town on the island, only 6km northeast from the international airport.
The first settlers were Phoenician navigators who came to the island around 650 BC. The remains of their village protected by UNESCO at the Sa Caleta site, lie some 10km southwest of Eivissa and are open to the public. Ancient relics like Ses Salines Natural Park, Sa Caleta, Dalt Vila and the cemetery of Puig des Molins have a UNESCO World Heritage status and are well worth a visit.
Most holidaymakers come to Eivissa to revel in its nightlife and the sun-kissed fine sand beaches are wide, clean and packed with lively and interesting crowds. The beaches in Eivissa are perfectly suited for young couples and singles looking to have some fun, however, Cala de Sant Vincent or Port de Sant Miquel in San Juan make great options for families with small children. Popular beaches best suiting singles and couples looking for an energetic atmosphere are Playa d'en Bossa, Playa de ses Figueretes and Cala Figuera. There is also a great number of nightclubs in and around Eivissa with an after-hours party scene.
Restaurants offer everything from local tapas to English Roast beef; as well as the new popular MediterrAsian cuisine. There are some charming, family-friendly restaurants here and there, but you'll find that most are very busy, so may appeal more to singles and couples.
In recent years, Ibiza has gained the acclaim of a luxury yoga hub, with yoga enthusiasts from all over the world retreating to this eclectic island. Who wouldn't want to do yoga on a calm beach in the warm Mediterranean sun while the smell of the sea mingles with the refreshing smell of pine? Some top yoga retreats can be found right here.
