Ibiza, All about the island
IBIZA - ALL ABOUT THE ISLAND
Island arose from the sea 8 Million
years ago, to the end of the Tertiary Era, when the Balearic Islands, as all other European
mountains chains, did by then. At first the Balearic Islands were attached to the Spanish mainland but caused by rising of the sea level, the islands
arose from sea about 12.000 years ago.
A 1500 meter deep sea ditch separates the Balearics from the Spanish mainland and today Ibiza is located 90 kilometers east of the Spanish mainland.
Together with the island lain south, Formentera (7131 inhabitants) and
numerous smaller and uninhabited rock islands, Ibiza forms the island group named: Pityusen. The Pityusen have, as the Balearics,
their own continental shelf.
Ibiza's official name in Catalan is EIVISSA. The official languages are Catalan and Castilian but Ibiza's original inhabitants, called Ibicenco, use their own Catalan dialect: Eivissenc.
The island of Ibiza belongs to the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands that hold altogether 67 municipalities and its capital is Palma on Mallorca.

Ibiza is the most western island of the Balearic
Islands, and human habitation dates from at least 5000 BC.
Ibiza - Eivissa - is the third biggest island of the Balearic Islands with a surface of 572 km², the principal city is Ibiza Town - Eivissa Vila. On Ibiza live approximately 106.220 inhabitants durably, together with officially announced foreigners called Residents.
Ibiza is hilly
and has sandy calas and rocks and the most
beautiful beaches and sandy shores of the
Mediterranean. Its highest 'mountain'
is Atalaya of Sa Talaiassa de Sant Josep - 476 m.
Ibiza has the most balanced climate of the Balearics. The temperatures in summer are around 30 Â°C, and in winter temperature rarely drops below zero.
There are no "dangerous" animals on the island, like poisonous snakes, lizards or spiders. Although these last years every now and then ladder snakes are found, accidently imported from the main land, in potted trees by garden centres.
The biological variety and culture from Ibiza were declared
World cultural heritage by
Unesco on December
Ibiza history tells us that the Balearic Islands were on Phoenician trade routes therefore Ibiza was conquered and inhabited by these Phoenicians. Later on the Carthaginians did the same but more important they also founded Ibiza Town, which became an important port in those days.
They also used Ibiza as their burial grounds and constructed The Salinas for salt making, Ibiza's most important trading product 'White Gold' = Salt.
Later in Ibiza History came, in succession the Romans, Visigoths and Muslims.
The Muslims left an important and recognizable imprint in the island's typical architecture and their traditional costumes. However the Muslims were driven out during the Christian Reconquista in the 13th century and the islands became Catalan colonies, and by then they lost their importance for the region.
Ibiza was under Bourbon control for most of the 18th century.
The remains of domination by all these different
cultures are still to be found on Ibiza, mostly restored.
The fortified Upper Town (Dalt Vila), the Phoenicia settlement of Sa Caleta, the Phoenician-Punic cemetery of Puig des Molins, and the Prairies of Oceanic Posidonia of the Natural Park of Las Salinas were declared World Heritage. While staying on the island make sure you spent time to visit these impressive reminders of passed ages of Ibiza History.
To the end of
the fifties many artist came to the island to escape
their after-war country to experience real freedom on
this beautiful and paradisiacal island. Later on hippies
and other freedom seekers followed and some of them
still live on the island today.
Nowadays many, many people from all over the world, travel to the island to experience its magic and beauty and of course its frantic nightlife and party scene. Most of them, young, come for the decadent, extravagant nightlife and dance all night to their favorite club anthems in Ibiza's world famous clubs.
The Ibienco are extremely tolerant towards these millions of people that spread over their island every year during the summer months. Unfortunately, over the last decades it became more and more obvious to them that their wonderful island and surrounding sea, have to be ecologically protected from all pollution that comes along with mass tourism.
The natural water resources of the island are not meant to cover all the visitors needs, and something needs to be done about this big Ibiza issue! Environmentalists started their enlightenment instructions in educating the locals by starting all kinds of ecological projects that are worthwhile visiting!
