Well known for its vibrant clubbing scene, Ibiza continues to be a popular tourist destination with millions of tourists heading to the island every year. The main tourist areas continue to be Ibiza Town and San Antonio in the west of the island. However, there is more to the island than its nightlife, as Ibiza is also home to many dedicated UNESCO World Heritage sites. Hiring a car in Ibiza is the best opportunity to explore all of the island?s cultural heritage by moving away from the island?s most frequented areas.
While Ibiza is known for its world-class club scene, which draws many visitors to the island every year, there is a lot to experience on the island beside the nightlife. For instance, the historic Ibiza old town is now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Recommended sites of interest include the Gothic-style Cathedral of Our Lady of the Snows and the old ramparts of the city. The old town?s name of Dalt Vila literally means ?High Town?, and the panoramic views of the city on offer from here should not be missed. The island is also supposedly the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, although there are a number of places which make the same claim. There is a monument to the explorer in San Antonio called ?The Egg?. Rent a car in Ibiza and you will be able to travel off the beaten track and see much of the island?s natural beauty with many peaceful locations on the north of the island, such as unspoilt coastal areas and small rural villages. Ibiza is an island that is steeped in history and culture as well as being a place to let your hair down, with famous clubs offering international DJ sets or sunrise chill out sessions on the beach.
