You're probably here because you're looking for a Portland Holiday in 2013 - well, Portland Holidays have become part of
Thomson Holidays now. In fact,
Portland Holidays has been owned by Thomson for several years, but since 2011 the Portland brand has been stopped, and all holidays
are now sold through Thomson. All's not lost though - it's still worth having a look at Thomson to see what they can offer you in the
way of a good deal.
A small island with an enormous reputation, Ibiza hosts some of the world's best
nightlife and is one of the most beautiful of the Balearics. Green hills and open
plains become golden sand bathed in the warm Mediterranean, and as resorts flourish
on the coast, traditional life still thrives inland.
Food & Wine in Ibiza
Ibiza attracts people from all walks of life and so caters for all kinds of tastes.
The native cuisine is much like the rest of the Mediterranean, with fish and seafood
dominating many menus. For a uniquely Ibecian dish, try sofrit pages, potato and red
peppers stewed in olive oil, or esta fado de buey, a kind of beef stew. Resorts are
peppered with restaurants and streets offer up many pavement caf�s where you can sip
coffee in the sunshine. With international cuisine served everywhere, your only decision
is how you want to dine - in the up-market, chic restaurants in Ibiza Town, in a beamed
medieval building, or somewhere relaxed along the seafront. Of course, along with the
clubbing culture comes fastfood and there's plenty of places to grab a bite in San Antonio.
Sip local spirits, flavoured with aniseed and herbs, the most famous of which is hierbas.
Days & Nights in Ibiza
The nightlife in San Antonio is inescapably legendary. With its bars and discos galore,
this is a frenetic and fashion conscious resort, frequented by some of the world's top DJs
and home to some of the best clubs in the world. If this is not your scene however, never
fear as there is life beyond San Antonio once the sun sets. All of Ibiza's resorts have plenty
of bars, restaurants and entertainment, most at a much calmer pitch than San Antonio. Stroll
along a palm lined promenade as you choose somewhere to sit and sip hierbas in the warm night air.
Sights & Sounds in Ibiza
Sightseeing: Ibiza Town has a wealth of historical sights. The D'alt Vila, or old town,
is like the setting for a fairytale, with Gothic architecture and crooked streets. The town's
cathedral was four hundred years in the making and can be seen for miles around as it crowns
the D'alt Vila.
Sun & Sand in Ibiza
From secluded sandy coves to broad reaches of golden sand, Ibiza's beaches are one of its
greatest assets. Whether you're after stretching out for a bit of sun worship or looking for
somewhere for kids to make sandcastles, the coves and bays along the north and west coasts are
ideal. Cala Xarrac, Cala D'en Parc and Portinatx are some of the best of a great selection. Playa d'en
Bossa's 2 kilometres of white sand forms the island's largest beach, and is great for families, as are
Cala Llonga and the sheltered inlet at San Miguel, while watersports are run from all resorts.
