The island has a total area of 570 km2 and a coastline of 210 km, with coves, sandy beaches and cliffs that are easy to access. It is also known as “la isla blanca” for its traditional architecture. Its highest point is “Sa Talaia” (475 m) which is located at the south-western part of the island, not far from the airport, that links Ibiza with the most important European cities in about two flight hours. The locals (140,271 inhabitants according to the National Statistics Institute in 2014) are friendly and cosmopolitan. A significant growth in population during six or seven months a year is found normal by them.
It is administratively divided into five municipalities: Eivissa (Ibiza) as the capital, Sant Joan de Santa Eulària des Riu, Sant Antoni de Portmany and Sant Josep de sa Talaia. The fortified walls of Dalt Vila, the archaeological remains of the Phoenician settlement of Sa Caleta, the prairies of Posidonia Oceanica which are located between Ibiza and Formentera, and the necropolis of Puig des Molins have been declared world heritage. Some highlights of Ibiza are the salt pans, the defense towers, the archaeological museum or the islets like Es Vedra. In conclusion, Ibiza is full of small and cozy corners that are hard to forget.
