Rent a car in Ibiza with Europcar
The famous party island, Ibiza, is accessible from Barcelona and Valencia in Spain. With the majority of the super clubs concentrated to the south coast of the island, there is plenty more to see and do if you are not into raving. Ibiza Town is a collection of pretty whitewashed buildings built up inside ramparts, and the port is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The third largest of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza has five different regions and there is no better option than car hire to fully explore them. With beautiful crystalline beaches and lush hills, Ibiza is a diverse island, appropriate for party-goers and family holidays alike.

Driving in Ibiza
In Ibiza, most country roads are capped at 90 km/h, with variations of 80-70 km/h. On motorways the speed limit is 120 km/h.
On-street parking in Ibiza Town is not always advised due to the difficulty of finding a parking spot. Paid parking applies to areas with blue markings or signposts, usually from Monday to Saturday. Always check how long you can stay for and place your meter ticket correctly on your dashboard - the police are strict on fines.
There are not many petrol stations on Ibiza and most of these close on public holidays. While credit cards are accepted, some stations require you to pay in advance (especially at nighttime). Be aware of the slight difference between the Spanish words for petrol (gasolina) and diesel (gasóleo or gasoil).
When you drive in Spain and in Ibiza there are tolls to pay on roads. You can pay for these with cash, credit/debit cards or via an electronic system called Telepeaje or Via T. These transmitters can be bought from banks and petrol stations and should be stuck on the inside of the car.
Discover Ibiza and surroundings by car
There is much more to do on Ibiza than just clubbing, but if that’s your thing then you probably already know the top ones to hit. Pacha, Amnesia, CD-10, Eden, Space...some of these names have been sweating it out since the late 60s. If you are looking for a more chilled holiday, Ibiza has plenty for you too. Located in South Ibiza the 13 stone circle Stonehenge, named after the mysterious monument in the UK, was created by Australian artist Andrew Rodgers. Perhaps not quite as mystical but a great sunset spot away from the crowds.
For fans of pop culture, Ibiza Rocks House cannot be missed. Having hosted some of the greats - Freddy Mercury, Grace Jones and Wham! -, it is the amongst the coolest hangouts on the island. Pike’s Hotel and Ibiza Rocks House is found on the east of the island near the Port Sant Antoni.
When it comes to beaches, the world is your oyster. Aigües Blanques on the north coast has beautiful scenery and legendary surf, while Cala Salada near Sant Antoni is a pine shrouded cove with a great seafood restaurant. To the west, south of Sant Josep lies Es Torrent, a top spot for snorkelling around the cliffs that fringe the bay.
There should be more than enough to keep you busy on Ibiza, but there is always neighbouring Formentera a short ferry ride away.

Emerging from the sea like a floating pyramid, Es Vedrà is one of the more impressive sights. 200 metres high and uninhabited, the island is said to be the third most magnetic spot on Earth. Shrouded in mystery, Es Vedrà is the seat of many myths; thought to be the tip of the lost city of Atlantis, as well as the home of the sirens who lured Odysseus in Homer’s classic The Odyssey. Located in southern Ibiza, the drive to Es Vedrà is just as enchanting - you are surrounded by mountains before the island comes into view.
Ibiza holds more culture than meets the eye. Ibiza Town has numerous treasures, from the 14th century Cathedral, with Catalan Gothic and Baroque features; to Necròpolis del Puig des Molins, an ancient burial ground that dates to the 7th century; and a museum that replicates the original Ibiza Town (Madina Yabisa) before the Catalan invasion of 1235. The Renaissance ramparts and 7 bastions that protect the town are particularly pretty when lit up at night.
