Ibiza is so much more than a party destination!
Whether you are into music, gastronomy and wine, sports or who knows what, you will always find an event that will fit your taste. Here are some of the unique events you do not want to miss during your stay.
Ibiza is undeniably a foodie heaven, from its Michelin listed restaurants to charming beach restaurants with beautiful sea views and laid-back farm to table dining spots, there is always something delicious to try around the island. It doesn’t stop there as every year, Ibiza hosts numerous food festivals to celebrate the rich culinary tradition and local produce of the island. Some of the unmissable ones are: Ibiza Sabor, held twice a year, Fira des Gerret (a typical type of fish from the island) and the Cuttlefish Gastronomy Festival, both held in March.
For a few days in May, Dalt Vila and La Marina, the two oldest quarters in the town of Ibiza, are transformed into a medieval marketplace featuring merchants, nobles, dancers and minstrels. This is a grand festival with which the Ibiza Town Council celebrates the declaration of its old town Dalt Vila and the village of sa Caleta, among other places, as World Heritage Sites in 1999.
