Port Des Torrent

 

Location

Add a historical dimension to your holiday in Ibiza with a trip to Ibiza Town, the centre of which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The castle, cathedral and even the walls, are signs of its rich past. Situated near this district are the harbour and marina, where you can enjoy a café con leche and rest your weary limbs after an afternoon sightseeing.

30 minutes to 1 hour

Situated at the south end of San Antonio Bay on the island's west coast, Port des Torrent is an old port village. Despite its proximity to Ibiza's biggest and liveliest resort area, a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere prevails here. Named after a seasonal stream that originates from Ibiza's highest peak and empties into the small bay, this resort is about natural beauty, serenity and tradition.

 

Beaches

Nestled at the end of a deep inlet, Port des Torrent boasts a wonderful little beach. Sheltered on either side by cliffs and with calm waters lapping the sandy shore, this is a haven for families with small children. On clear, bright days there is nothing quite as enjoyable as swimming or snorkelling in the calm waters. With the snack bars open in high season you will be enticed into spending long, happy days on this beach.

 

Shopping

Head to Ibiza Town's La Marina quarter for a unique shopping extravaganza. This area is the heartland of Ibiza's Ad Lib style - a bohemian fashion that originated in the 1960s when hippies came to live on the island. To make money they used to set up stalls at markets where they would sell their own work. This tradition has survived and today there are many markets on the island, the most prominent held on Wednesdays in Es Canar is the hippy market, where you can meander through colourful stalls and buy wonderful trinkets for you and your home.

 

Nightlife

Ibiza is famous for its discos, which are concentrated in the major towns. Spend your evenings in Port des Torrent sipping a drink in one of the traditional tavernas, or take the bus to nearby San Antonio Bay for a more vibrant atmosphere.

 

Restaurants

With an extensive choice of restaurants, tavernas, pizzerias and tapas bars you can have a different dining experience every night in Ibiza. Pitiusan or Ibicencan cuisine is relatively simple - dinner might be a piece of grilled fresh fish or meat with a portion of seasonal vegetables and potatoes or perhaps a country stew. If you fancy a little more variety, a selection of local tapas are both flavoursome and filling. The island produces its own red wine, which is definitely worth trying, as is the sangria.
