Visit Ibiza Town
Ibiza Town is the capital of the island of Ibiza in the Balearic Islands off the coast of Spain.
A magnet for clubbers from the world over, Ibiza town has clubs, bars and beaches but it also remains an attractive town.
Ibiza's real name is Eivissa in Catalan and it is made up of the old town called D'Alt Vila and the new town called Eixample. The old town sits up on top of the rock looking down on modern Ibiza and the sea below.
