About Ibiza

The Mediterranean island of Ibiza (Eivissa) is situated, just off coast of Valencia, Spain. The third largest island in the Balearic archipelago, and the largest of the Pitiuses, Ibiza has historical origins including Carthaginian, Roman, Byzantine, Arabic and Moorish, and dating as far back as the Phoenicians in 654BC.

Endless sunny days, a year-round mild climate and truly breathtaking and varied scenery make Ibiza a wonderful holiday destination for all ages. Over 210 kilometres of idyllic coastline, crystal clear waters, lush vegetation including vast pine forests, olive, fig, carob and almond trees, citrus orchards and more attract over 5 million people per year!

A haven for hippies on the bohemian travel trail in the ‘60s, Ibiza then became known for its hedonistic tourism trade, in particular the well-documented super clubs and the rise of electronic music from the late ‘80s onwards, a scene that continues to thrive today.

Despite its popularity with tourists, finding time and space for rest and relaxation in Ibiza is a breeze. Coastal and countryside walks, beautiful bike trails, yoga retreats, tranquil beaches, spectacular sunsets, yoga, meditation and detox retreats, rustic and fine dining restaurants and UNESCO World Heritage Listed Sites make for fascinating holidays.

Whether you choose to dip your toe into the party scene or not is simply a matter of personal taste!

Misty mornings at Cas Gasi Ibiza
Cas Gasi favourite: Misty mornings

We adore the morning mists in the Ibiza countryside, particularly in January, before the fog lifts to reveal these infamous warm, still and sunny winter days.
The locals call this  “the calm of January”.  We call it pure bliss.

In bloom: Ibiza almond blossoms

As the thick of the winter starts to come to an end, the fields of Ibiza become awash with a beautiful white haze… No, it’s not snow – rather, this spectacular show of nature is the annual blooming of the almond blossoms, when the wiry old almond trees finally get to show off, turning the
