Old Town of Ibiza Town
It is worth exploring the old town on Ibiza’s capital, also known as Eivissa (Catalan name of Ibiza Town). The “Dalt Villa” (old town) captivates with its romantic harbour as well as the famous fortress, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Quiet place, surrounded by high cliffs with a wide beach, especially popular with families and couples.
Torre d’es Savinar
Built in 1763, the Torre d’es Savinar, which is located on the cliffs of Ibiza’s south coast, was once used as a watchtower for purposes of defense. Today it serves only as a nice lookout tower, offering a breathtaking panoramic view over the picturesque island Es Vedra and the sea.
Cova de Can Marca:
Stalactite cave near Port de San Miguel, which once served as a hideout for smuggled, prohibited goods.
Cathedral of Santa Maria de las Nieves:

There are ferries departing regularly from Ibiza that dock at Formentera’s beautiful harbor “Puerto La Savina”. There is much to discover, no matter whether on foot, by bike or by scooter, a car is not necessary. The island has countless beaches with bright white sand and turquoise blue sea, which are great to find some relaxation.
Adventures above and below water
Sport and pleasure combined! Ibiza is a true paradise for water activities such as stand-up paddling (SUP) or kayaking. Along the beautiful coast of Ibiza you can discover impressive caves and hidden beaches.
Ibiza also offers ideal conditions for diving – warm, crystal-clear water as well as varied and impressive underwater locations. There are diving schools all over the island that organise dives at different levels.

If you prefer even more action, there are many possibilities to try various water sports activities (such as water skiing, jet skiing, speedboat tours, banana boat and many more).
Internship Ibiza – Transport
Since Ibiza is a relatively small island, the ways are usually not far. Thus, the journey, no matter where and with which means of transport, is never very long. In order to get to know the island in all its diversity, one can make use of different possibilities:
The bus network in Ibiza (Ibiza Bus) is inexpensive, very well extended and runs regularly during the day from 7 to 22 o’clock. Between the bigger cities and popular holiday resorts as well as some beaches you can get easily back and forth every 30 minutes. At night, a so-called discobus runs until 6 o’clock in the morning so that all those partying can get around safely.
All year round ferries leave for mainland Spain and the neighboring island of Mallorca. The port is located in Ibiza town.
Daily, smaller ferries (water taxis) travel along the coasts of the island, connecting different places with each other.
For the trip to Formentera, you can choose from a variety of providers, all operating between the ports of Ibiza Town and La Savina on Formentera.
If you are travelling in a group (3-4 persons), you can also use taxis, as these are relatively cheap and undoubtedly the most comfortable option. The price per kilometer is approx. € 1.09 during day or € 1.33 during night as well as on weekends and public holidays, plus a basic charge of approx. € 3.65. Fares are calculated by a taximeter (be careful with unofficial, illegal taxis – you might get a bad deal here).
As everywhere else, there is always the option to organise a rental car, as long as you meet the requirements (age, duration of driving license, etc.)
