Ibiza is part of the Balearic Islands. The island chain, which is located just off of the eastern coast of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea, is one of Spain’s autonomous communities. It has a population of about 115,000.
The city is known for having a great night life scene, a major draw for tourism on the island. During the hours off from clubbing, the island’s two main towns of Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni offer some fun attractions for visitors. Aquario Cap Blanc and Baláfi are interesting history museums, although the most popular sites are The Watchtower, Ca na Costa and Dalt Vila for site seeing.
After dark, Ibiza becomes one of the most recognized club scenes in the world. Dance clubs and live entertainment are never in shortage and visitors tend to stay out until the sunrise.
The major airport for the island of Ibiza is the Ibiza Airport (airport code IBZ). The airport is only a hub for Vueling Airlines but serves 31 airlines in total flying regularly scheduled routes. An additional 14 airlines will make flights a few times a year out of the airport.
Spanair flies the most flights per year into or out of Ibiza Airport. Iberia, Ryanair and Lufthansa also fly relatively frequent flights. Air Berlin, Ryanair, Thomas Cook Airlines, Thomson Airways and EasyJet offer flights to the most destinations out of the airlines flying out of Ibiza Airport.
On average, between 50,000 and 60,000 flights arrive at or leave Ibiza Airport each year. The airport is only about seven kilometres outside of the town of Ibiza.
