  • Santa Eularia des RiuSanta Eularia des Riu/wiki/Santa_Eularia_des_Riu Marina icon – marina |Anchorage icon – anchorage |
    is the 3rd town in the island, with less nightlife than two others

There are 4 marinas in the port of Eivissa (city of Ibiza) and the other two are in Sant Antoni de Portmany and Santa Eularia des Riu. All of them are known for notoriously high prices in season.

Anchorages

There are plenty of anchorages around the whole island, but finding a good anchorage in season could be a problem.

See the respective harbour articles for more details.

Transportation

There are daily flights to the Spanish mainland and other destinations within the EU as well as ferries to Alicante.

Tourism

Ibiza was first settled by the Phoenicians (Carthaginians) in 654 BC and then by the Greeks who called the island Pitiusas. After the Punic Wars the island was taken over by the Romans. In 1235, like the rest of the Balearic islands Ibiza was conquered by James I of Aragon.
