    Ibiza – a brief overview

    The small Balearic island of Ibiza has quite the international reputation – not all of it good. Hippy-style hedonists started arriving in the 1960s, enthralled by the immaculate beaches and heavenly climate. In the 1990s, it became a clubbing mecca. Today, it’s still popular with partygoers, but has begun to sharpen up its image with more sophisticated hotels and high-end restaurants.

    It’s possible to escape the herds of tourists by visiting the little villages dotted around, seeking out remote coves, or even taking a boat to one of the tiny islands within touching distance of Ibiza. Even in the main town of Eivissa, there’s a beautiful fortified Old Town, and several museums and galleries to explore.

    Country Information

    Country overview

    Spain is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Endless beaches, brilliant sunshine and azure waters draw beach lovers to the Mediterranean coast, and the Balearic and Canary Islands. But visitors also flock to see the historical architecture of cities, such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Leon, Seville and Segovia.

    If you want to experience the real Spain, don’t go to bed too early. In these parts, people stroll the city squares and dine out late into the night.

    Geography

    Spain accounts for roughly four-fifths of the Iberian Peninsula, with Portugal, Andorra and Gibraltar occupying the remainder. In the northeast, the Pyrenees form a natural frontier to France. The state territory also encompasses the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) located southeast of Barcelona, in the Mediterranean, and the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa. Ceuta, Chafarinas, Melilla and Ladu are tiny Spanish enclaves in North Africa, relics of the former Spanish Empire.

    Spain is a mountainous country. The Pyrenees extend for 400 kilometers from the Basque Country in the northwest to the Mediterranean. Some peaks rise more than 3000 meters above sea level; the highest elevation here is the Pico de Aneto at 3404 meters above sea level. The country’s interior consists of a vast plateau, the Meseta, which is intersected by a number of mountain ranges.

    In the north and northwest, the Meseta is bordered by the Cantabrian Mountains and the Iberian Mountains, and in the South by the Sierra Morena, beyond which lies the Guadalquivir Valley. Galicia’s mountainous landscape runs along the jagged Atlantic coast. The extreme south is also mountainous; the Sierra Nevada southeast of Granada belongs to the Betic Cordilleras, which run parallel to the Mediterranean and include the highest mountain on the Spanish mainland, the Mulhacén (3481 meters above sea level). The highest elevation on Spanish territory is the Pico del Teide (3718 meters above sea level) on Tenerife.

    Spain has just under 5000 kilometers of coastline. The Mediterranean coast extends from the French border to the Rock of Gibraltar. The Strait of Gibraltar connects the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and divides Spain from North Africa.

    Climate & best time to visit Spain

    The Spanish climate varies from region to region, spanning moderate in the north to Mediterranean in the south, and even subtropical on the Canary Islands.

    The best times to visit Spain are generally in the spring and the fall, when temperatures are agreeable. In most parts of the country, it is very hot at the height of summer, but sea breezes on the coast keep it bearable; the interior is best avoided in July and August. The climate on the Atlantic coast and in all of Galicia is pleasant even in summer. In winter, you can enjoy winter sports in the Pyrenean Mountains or agreeably warm days on the south and southeast coast, as well as on the Canary Islands.

    Key Areas

    Ibiza is known for its traditional pottery, which tends to be of high quality and good value, as well as leatherwear. The principal shopping street is Vara de Rey, with stores operating out of historic buildings flogging high-street brands. In the Old Town, there are lots of artisanal shops selling handmade goods.

    Markets

    Lest we forget that Ibiza’s tourist roots lie in the hippies that started showing up in the 1960s, there are various markets in Eivissa and elsewhere with artisans selling jewellery, pottery, paintings, clothes and various souvenirs. Perhaps the most famous is Las Dalias Hippy Market in Sant Carles de Peralta, opened in 1973 and still going strong, now with restaurants, bars and events.

    Shopping Centres

    There are a handful of malls on the island. Centro Comercial la Sirena is one of the largest and best for clothes, with everything from Calvin Klein and Armani, to Diesel and Nike.

    Traveller etiquette

    Social Conventions

    It is polite in Spain to shake hands in greeting. The usual courtesies should be observed. If you are invited to someone’s home, your host will appreciate a small gift. Flowers are given only on special occasions.

    Clothing

    Casual dress is appropriate almost everywhere, although some hotels and restaurants require men to wear a jacket and tie; evening dress is only required for particularly formal occasions. Swimwear belongs without exception on the beach.

    Smoking

    A smoking ban applies in all public institutions, on public transportation, in telephone booths and in rooms containing ATMs, as well as in children’s playgrounds and schoolyards. The smoking ban also applies to all bars, cafés and restaurants. Smoking areas inside bars and restaurants are no longer permitted.

    Tipping

    Tips are generally included in hotel and restaurant bills. It is nevertheless usual to leave a small tip for the service staff. Porters receive a small sum per item of luggage. The usual amount tipped in restaurants is between 10 and 15 percent. When the waiter brings your change, you leave some as the tip. It is considered extremely rude, however, to leave two- or five-cent pieces. When tipping your taxi driver, simply round up the fare.

    Health

    Emergency telephone number: 112

    Lyme disease, TBE (tick-borne encephalitis) and leishmaniosis are all diseases which are passed on by ticks and mosquitoes and also occur in Spain. Clothing that covers the skin and insect repellents provide protection.

    Hepatitis A and hepatitis B occur all over Spain. A hepatitis A vaccination is generally recommended. Visitors planning an extended stay and close contact with the local population, and generally with children and young people, should also have a hepatitis B vaccination.

    Measles and whooping cough occur in Spain. Before traveling to Spain, visitors should definitely check whether their vaccinations are up to date and if necessary, get a booster shot.

    Epidemic outbreaks of meningococcal meningitis occur in Spain. Visitors should seek protection by getting a vaccination and avoiding large crowds. Children and young people, in particular, should be vaccinated. According to the latest recommendations, the vaccination applies as required travel vaccination for extended stays for certain groups of people (teenagers, school and university students). Visitors should consult their physician regarding the need for vaccination in the light of recommendations in the country of destination.
