Ibiza is a famed holiday destination and with good reason. But many of its hidden gems are outside of the popular towns amid the verdant interiors or in a secluded enclave along the extensive shoreline. A rental car gives you the freedom and opportunity to set your own agenda, get off the beaten path and discover the part of Ibiza which all too often goes unseen. Whether you prefer history, water sports, relaxing in the sun or dancing all night, Ibiza is the ultimate holiday destination.

It's your choice: Where to go in Ibiza

Cheap flights to Ibiza land at the country's international airport situated close to Ibiza Town. The flight duration from the UK is around 2 hours and 30 minutes with multiple airlines including Monarch, British Airways, Jet 2 and Easyjet operating the route. Upon arrival in Ibiza, you can rent a car to reach your final destination, whether that be the quaint old streets of Ibiza Town or the bustling San Antonio. Regardless of where you choose to stay in Ibiza, the island's petite size (just 42km at the widest) means you'll never have to travel for longer than an hour from the airport to your accommodation. During the summer months, the island's peak travel period, booking a rental car in advance is strongly advised. It is important to check the documentation and deposit requirements when booking to make sure you have everything in order when you arrive to collect your vehicle.

What to taste in Ibiza

Owing to the variety of international visitors, Ibiza's gastronomic scene is a diverse affair. Many hotels in Ibiza serve both local and international dishes and the town's streets are lined with everything from boutique eateries to international fast food chains. Local highlights such as the Sofrit Pagés, a traditional Baliarci stew, or the indulgent Flaons (a baked pastry stuffed with goats cheese) are a must. The Balearic island has also curated its own take on the traditional Spanish paella. A pan of Paellas de Marisco, seafood paella in Catalan, washed down with a glass of crisp white wine is an utterly authentic and delicious way to end any day in Ibiza.
