Ibiza, la isla blanca.

Ibiza es un paraíso de playas y parques naturales. Ha sido declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la UNESCO por su biodiversidad y riqueza cultural. La isla tiene 210 kilómetros de costa y te encantarán sus largos arenales de tierra blanca, sus dunas, calas y agua cristalina. Te recomendamos la práctica de deportes acuáticos en las playas de Santa Eulària y Sant Antonio y San Josep, o una excursión a la isla vecina de Formentera, a escasa media hora en barco y donde encontrarás magníficas piscinas naturales.
La noche también es especial en Ibiza. La isla es conocida a nivel mundial por su ocio nocturno. La diversión comienza en las terrazas al caer el sol y continua hasta la mañana siguiente en grandes discotecas.
