Why hire a car in Ibiza?
That all important first mile - driving out of Ibiza airport:
"Ibiza Town is a Mediterranean Mecca for the discerning holiday maker"
Although it's the island's capital and well worth a visit, there is much more to discover beyond the town's walls. Hire a car in Ibiza and find your own private beach.
Expect an energetic atmosphere around the nightclub hotspots, but beyond that, Ibizans take a gentle, laid-back approach to almost everything. Relax and take it easy.
The locals love this island and who can blame them. They want you to love it too, but that means looking after and respecting it. Do that, and the welcome will always be a warm one.
With about 300 days of sunshine per year and winters that rarely see temperatures drop below 15°C, it's safe to leave jumpers at home. Be warned though, the summer months get super hot. Carry water and buy a cover for the windscreen of your hire car to keep those seats cool - or you can always rent a car that comes with air conditioning.
The fish and seafood dishes here are some of the best you'll find in the Mediterranean. Order burrida de ratjada - ray with almonds, all of which is caught or grown locally, for a taste of traditional island fare.
Since the 1950's, celebrities have either been hanging out, or hiding out on the island. If you're an autograph hunter, you could return from your trip with signatures from the likes of Kylie, Kate Moss, Pete Tong or Mick Jagger.
According to Nostradamus, the location and natural conditions of this particular island make it the only place in the northern hemisphere that could sustain life after Armageddon.
"Whether you've been or not, you'll probably have a few preconceptions about the island: jam-packed clubs, rowdy crowds, a hedonistic lifestyle and chilled-out music. But what you may not realise is that there's a whole other side to this Balearic island: a tranquil, laid-back and beautiful one."

If you're driving, don't even have a drop of the good stuff. You'll be hit with a six-month stint in jail if caught.
