Travel guide Ibiza
Ibiza, together with Mallorca, Menorca, Formentera and Cabrera, forms part of the Balearic Islands, east of Spain. It has a wonderful flora and fauna that enthrals the visitors, just like the magnificent seaside and the white washed houses. The majority of cheap hotels
can be found in the very heart of Ibiza Town.
The original name of Ibiza Town is Vila de Evissa, or simply Vila, which is a delightful Mediterranean town; you can encounter all kinds of architectural beauties walking on its narrow streets, or in the pedestrian zone called Paseo de Vara Rey. The various discos of the city are quite popular, not only among the younger but the elder generations as well. You can compare the prices of low cost flights
or car rental possibilities, and cheap hotels here on Liligo.com.
The second biggest town, San Antonio is known for its Café de Mar – you can see the glow of sunset around 21:30 at summer from the terrace of the café. In the city centre, near the cheap hotels, there is a bustling nightlife all the year round, but undoubtedly the major attraction is its sandy, crystalline beach, ideal for families with little children as well.
There is also a famous Hippy Market near Santa Eularia, the 3rd biggest resort, every Wednesday from 10.00 - 19.00, where you can find some exotic clothing and a huge variety of East-Asian silver jewellery. If you look around you might meet some of the old hippies, too.
The Salt Flats is Ibiza's another well known landmark besides the beaches; these salt fields have been used for more than 2000 years. As the water evaporates during the hot summer months, a sparkling layer of pure salt is left on the bottom of the lakes – great place to take sunset photos. Some things to take care of when planning your trip
To have a holiday without setbacks, it helps a lot to take into consideration what simple measurements can be done that would save you many bad shots.
First of all, always check your documents that will be requested at the entrance of your destination country, consult the competent government agency, and even if you do not leave the country, keep in mind that it is obligatory to carry along your identification papers. Moreover, many accommodations request documents at registration. You may also want to rent a car, so you'll have to take your driver's license with you (get informed about the international driving license, too). Do not forget your travel insurance, your health insurance card (we strongly recommend you to take your health card). There are some countries where a visa is required to be allowed to enter the country at all. But do not worry, in most countries you can enter and stay without visas or special permits for some months (usually 90 days).
A good tactic is to photocopy important documents you might need, so in case they get lost or stolen, it will be really useful. Furthermore, it is also a good idea to carry along two extra passport photos.
Thanks to the Schengen agreement, one can freely cross the borders of ‘Schengen countries’, so EU travellers travelling within this area won’t be asked to identify themselves. Even so, you should always carry along identity documents, because police might ask for identity checks, any time. The following countries form part of the Schengen Agreement:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iceland (non-EU), Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway (non-EU), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland (non-EU).
EU countries that do not belong to this agreement are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, UK and Romania. Citizens outside the EU will need to apply for visas and documents to enter the Schengen area. The maximum length of stay for travellers is 3 months.
Bear in mind that some documents and visas are not that easy to get, one has to wait for them. Therefore it is recommended that you plan the travel and learn about these documents well in advance.
In addition to paperwork, when travelling within or outside the borders of the EU or the Schengen area, don’t forget to be informed of the required or recommended vaccinations in certain countries. If you know exactly the health care situation of the country which you plan to travel to, you can avoid many unpleasant surprises.
Again, please note that some vaccines require more than one dose, sometimes with large temporary spaces between them, so it is advisable to act well in advance. Be cautious with consuming food, especially fruits, and for your security, drink bottled water only.
Also, the maximum weight of your luggage is usually around 20 kilos –depending on the airline-, so it might be a good idea to make a list of most necessary things before packing your suitcase. Your passport (and anything fragile) is best to be guarded in your hand luggage that you bring along into the cabin.
Note that you can’t have scissors (or any kind of cutting or stabbing tools) with you, nor liquids of any kind (water, tee, juices and all types of cosmetics), or at least only a small amount.
Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that your luggage gets lost. In this case it might be helpful to have some clothes with you in your hand bag, until your luggage is found.Further information
