Mini guide to rural Ibiza
BA, easyJet, flythomascook, Jet2, Monarch, Ryanair and Thomson Flights fly from numerous UK airports to Ibiza Aiport, four miles southwest of Ibiza Town (from £82 from London Gatwick). Buses from the airport can take you to Sant Antoni, Ibiza City and Es Canar. To get around the island, bus fares don’t exceed £2.50. Numerous car rental companies operate from the aiport – a week’s hire can cost from £50 if booked in advance.
Where to stay
Hostal Es Alocs is a very friendly choice, sitting right on the beach at Es Figueral in the northeast. The simple rooms occupy two floors and most have a small fridge and balcony. The bar-restaurant has a wonderful terrace, deeply shaded with tangled juniper and chaste trees (Es Figueral; May–Oct; from £26).
Situated on the west coast headland of Cap Negret, tranquil Hostal la Torre offers stunning clifftop seaviews and has 17 smart rooms that have recently been upgraded (Urb Cap Negret 25; Mar–Dec; suite from £85).
Hotel La Ventana is a charming 15th-century mansion set on a little tree-shaded square in the old town of Ibiza City. Some rooms come with four-poster beds and mosquito nets (Carrer de Sa Carrossa 13; from £145).
