Although it's universally known as the party island it doesn't mean that a Ibiza holiday isn't also perfect for families or those simply looking to relax. San Antonio may be party central with some of the most famous clubs in the world situated on the Café De Mar strip, but away from this busy port you can find Ibiza Town (Dalt Vila) a quieter destination full of cobbled streets and historic buildings. For local shopping head to the famous Es Canar market or take a trip to Cova de Can Marçà, the biggest natural caves in Ibiza.
With budget airlines Ryanair and easyJet offering frequent direct flights from most UK airports to Ibiza, it's easy to visit the island if you need to stick within a tight budget. British Airways, Monarch and Flythomascook also offer direct flights from most UK airports. Ibiza Airport is located seven kilometres southwest of Ibiza Town.
Ibiza boasts an extensive bus system with half hour connections between all the major resorts. Keep an eye for the disco bus if you're looking to go clubbing ? it runs between midnight and 6am from all the major clubs and resorts.
It's worth looking into car rental in Ibiza if you fancy exploring some of the remote parts of the island ? you just need to show your driving license to the car rental agency. It can be hard to rent a car during the high season so it's best to book early to avoid disappointment ? this can also help you secure a bargain!
Throughout the summer hotel prices can rocket as clubbers look to get their yearly fix of the island. But if you book your holiday in Ibiza in October you'll miss the high season and be able to grab some great bargains. The climate is warm all year round thanks to its close proximity to the West Coast of Africa. If you do want to visit during peak season just make sure you book your hotel in Ibiza well in advance to keep the costs down and secure accommodation.
There are many famous clubs to visit in Ibiza but this means that they also come with a hefty price tag. Try to source out some smaller local bars instead of starting your night in the more well-known clubs such as Space and Pacha. Many bars have special promotion deals to try and lure you in their establishment ? take advantage! This can dramatically cut down on the amount you'll need to take for spending money
It can be expensive eating out in Ibiza especially if you stay within the tourist resorts. Instead venture further out into side streets and you'll find some real gems ? for a much cheaper price!
You don't have to spend much money at all though during your Ibiza holiday if you simply want to relax on the beautiful beaches or if you explore the island's sites by foot!

posted by hmaryMy mates and I went out on a kayak tour on our first day in Ibiza, complete with pirate treasure hunt! It was a really cool way to see some of the island before the holiday devolved into hangover central.
