Once known exclusively as Europe’s ultimate party destination, Ibiza has evolved to boast a holistic and laid-back reputation too. Now, you’ll find travellers visit this Balearic Island seeking breath-taking natural beauty and the promise of some serious relaxation and rejuvenation.

With an eye for premium, OB Travel now expands its villa offering to include an impressive collection of Ibiza residences. From the charming streets of Santa Eulàlia des Riu to the historic magic of Dalt Vila, choose from our portfolio of laid-back locations for a luxurious getaway on the White Isle.

But, before you book, our team has curated their ultimate guide to the unseen gems of Ibiza. From the restaurant the King of Spain struggles to get a seat at to the ultimate sport for bohemian shopping, here’s what new and noteworthy in Ibiza in 2024. 

Where to relax

Many believe Ibiza has a unique healing energy all on its own, though from yogi masters to chakra healers and all that sits in between, the island is quickly becoming known as a luxury wellness sanctuary.

Countless retreats take place all throughout the year, but our favourite destination for all things classes and reflections lies with Six Senses Ibiza.

With a spa that spans over 1,2000 square metres complete with a steam room, state-of-the-art fitness areas and massage catacombs, you can experience cutting-edge healing techniques from experts around the world, all tailored just for you.

Where to eat

Celebrating the seafood heritage of Ibiza, legendary fish restaurant El Bigotes remains the spot for the most authentic dining experience – that is, if you can get a reservation.

Serving an exclusive number of 70 people per day and with an offbeat no-menu policy, dine here to enjoy the catch of the day on the secluded natural bay of Cala Mastella. Alternatively, Ami Manera, Paloma and Estorrent sit high on our list

Where to visit

Offering a serene contrast to its larger neighbour, Formentera sits just a short boat ride away from Ibiza and boasts the perfect spot for beachside lunching.

Our recommendations? Try Beso Beach, Juan y Andrea and Casa Pacha Formentera. Or, to stay on the island, head east to San Carlos and be greeted by a warm friendly atmosphere and a traditional village centre. 

Where to party

A never-ending and exciting roster of parties defines Ibiza’s nightlife, but to enjoy a night out a little less obvious than the classic spots that light up San Antonio, we would recommend exploring the market town of Las Dalia for a dance in recently opened Akasha.

With a 300-head capacity limit, expect a Boiler Room-esque atmosphere complete with a bar, restaurant and outdoor rooftop for some scenic views. 

Where to shop

A hippy’s paradise, visit the distinct Santa Gertrudis in the island’s heart to discover quaint boutiques, artisanal crafts and locally produced goods.

Here, you’ll find the boho-chic members of Ibiza’s community, plus handcrafted jewellery, fringed cotton dresses and one-of-a-kind souvenirs from beloved local spots like Cucons and Aguas Blancas. They call it the chicest town in Ibiza, and it only takes a few steps on those cobbled streets to understand why.
