Ibiza! Does it Really Have it all?
The White Isle of Ibiza has fast become the party capital of the world. Drawing in holiday makers and ravers from around the globe to dance their night away in some of the biggest and most chaotic nightclubs imaginable. These include several raving Meccas like Amnesia, Space, Ushuaia and DC10. Although being a fairly small island and having this huge party reputation, Ibiza does have a softer side. There are a number of quieter holiday hotspots situated in small towns and villages around the island. Quirky campsites to stay in, hippy beaches to visit and tiny coves to explore, making the types of Ibiza accommodation almost endless and where to go a hard decision.
In the north of the island, hidden up in the hills you can find plenty of little gems. Small towns like San Juan offer vintage Ibiza charm, stone buildings and quite windy streets. A far cry from the cheap hotels and typical Ibiza accommodation of San Antonio, there are plently of places like this. There are also some more luxury towns in Ibiza like Talamanca or Cala Vadella. These towns feature lots of high end restaurants, bars and some of the more luxury Ibiza accommodation.
Lastly of course you big ones! The party meccas of Playa Den Bossa and San Antonio which offer the nightlife, cheap hotels and moderate Ibiza accommodation. Making the question ‘where to stay in Ibiza?’ A tough one.
The Problem with Ibiza Accommodation in recent years
Now, moving on to accommodation. If you ask any Ibiza regular or any of the locals about accommodation, they will tell you that there has been a huge problem for a while. A mega influx in tourism has hit Ibiza accommodation hard. On top of that, holiday makers and workers look for where to stay on letting sites like AirBnB. This has made finding where to stay in Ibiza an almost impossible task for the average joe. These days you’ll be forced to pay an extortionate price for a cheap Ibiza hotel, unless you’re a millionaire.
This huge overcrowding issue on the island has resulted in Ibiza Council banning short term lettings sites like AirBnB from being used for Ibiza accommodation. Forcing holiday makers and workers to stay in some very crowded and uncomfortable accommodation over the past few years.
