Ibiza, Spain:
Your Right to Party

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

Ibiza is about 120 kilometers or 75 miles southeast of Valencia in the Mediterranean Sea, the little sister of the Balearic Islands of Spain.

Mallorca, as in major, is Spain’s largest island possession. The second largest of the islands is Menorca, as in minor, at least in comparison to Mallorca.

This morning dawned clear and bright, and I got up early to catch a photo of Ibiza town at sunrise and then an early light image of a portion of town:

The Balearic Islands are very attractive in many ways. Rich and fertile land. Safe harbors. And located on the ancient trading routes for long-vanished peoples as well as for wave upon wave of empire builders including the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Vikings, the Spanish, and the English.

And then they were right along the watery highway for incoming Islamic tribes, and later for outgoing Crusaders.

Today the islands are close enough for invading holiday makers to hop on a ferry or a flight from the mainland to the beach for the weekend.
