There are many small islands spread about the oceans and seas of the world and many are slightly larger than Ibiza , yet relatively unknown.

In this section we offer a few of the reasons why this rocky outcrop, of slightly over 500 sq. km, has become one of the most famous on the planet.

Recent history would suggest that the music - the Balearic vibe - was the reason for spreading the island's name across the music press front pages throughout the last decade and more (step forward and accept your island knighthoods Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold and posse...). However, a glimpse further back into history, or a glance back at the daily weather forecast reveal significant depths to the islands' rather more long-term attractions.

Water
Water! As there is little rainfall, and when it does rain most of it runs quickly into the sea, water is very valuable! Water is both expensive and scarce therefore we remind you not to leave taps running and use the shower instead of running a bath.

Fire
In the summer the island becomes very dry and there is a huge risk of forest fires.You can help prevent a serious and irreparable ecological disaster.
Do not light fires in the summer.
Do not throw cigarette butts or burning objects out of moving cars.
Do not leave rubbish or litter that could cause fires.
