Spain - Ibiza

Ibiza is the third largest island out if the Balearic Islands, its just 79km of the coast of Valencia Spain. Known as the party island Ibiza has much more to offer than the mass tourism of party goers. Ibiza is full of natural beauty, amazing culture activities, and peaceful coves.
Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea 79 km off the coast of the city of Valencia in Spain. It is the third largest of the Balearic Islands, an autonomous community of Spain.
With Formentera, it is one of the txo Pine Islands or Pityuses.
Its largest cities are Ibiza town (Catalan: Vila d'Eivissa or simply Vila), Santa Eulària des Riu and Sant Antoni de Portmany.....

The island is well-known for it summer club parties which actract large numbers of tourists, but the island and the Spanish Tourist Office have been working in order to promote more family-oriented tourism.
Though some dispute the island's ability to attract higher income families in large numbers, due to a lack of professionalism in the hospitality and service sector, the island is keen to dispel its image as merely a destination for young clubbers.
Ibiza is aslo home to the legendary "port" in the district of Ibiza, a popular stop for many tourists and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A notable example includes "God's Finger" in the Benirràs Bay as well as some of the more traditional Ibicenco cultural sites.
Because of its rustic beauty, companies and artists alike frequently use the island for photographic and film shoots.A monument ("The Egg") erected in honour of Christopher Columbus can be found in Sant Antoni: Ibiza is one of the several places purporting to be his birthplace.
