Hotels on the island operate under a variety of types of ownership. While many are under the control of large Spanish hotel chains like Sol Melia and Barcelo, there are also many which are owned by private individuals. One phenomenon that has increased in Ibiza recently is the so-called super hotel. These are often based around one of the successful nightclubs on the island and are located in key pleasure seekers' locales like Ushuaia Beach. Pikes is the famous setting for a Wham video in the 1980s and still revels in its sun-soaked glamour.
Some of the best hotels on Ibiza also enjoy great settings, with many located immediately adjacent to the island's wonderful beaches and nightlife spots, as well as its more peaceful interior. Anyone who travels to Ibiza will also notice that the hotels are well spread across the island. Many are situated in resorts like Playa d'en Bossa and Figueretas. Talamanca lies close to Ibiza Town, known locally in Catalan as Eivissa. Ibiza Town itself offers interesting and enigmatic corners in its winding streets, while the view from the top of the town is superb.
There are also many things for people staying in Ibiza hotels to see outside of the towns. The salt flats at La Salinas offer an otherworldly experience, while the Culleram Caves were in the past a Phoenician shrine to the goddess Tanit. The Moorish influence on the island can be explored in more detail in tiny villages such as the Poblado de Balàfia, situated close to San Lorenzo.
The San Antonio area has much to offer tourists in terms of beaches, with its bay especially picturesque. Also well worth visiting are Sa Caleta, Portinatx, Cala Sant Vincente, Cala Llenya, Es Cana, Santa Eulalia, Es Figueral and Cala Longa, which are all great beach areas where a full range of coastal activities can be found. Whether you want to learn to sail or prefer just sitting in the sun, you can find it here.
