Ibiza, Biodiversity and Culture
"Ibiza preserves considerable evidence of its long history. The archaeological sites at Sa Caleta (settlement) and Puig des Molins (necropolis) testify to the important role played by the island in the Mediterranean economy in protohistory, particularly during the Phoenician-Carthaginian period. The fortified Upper Town (Alta Vila) is an outstanding example of Renaissance military architecture; it had a profound influence on the development of fortifications in the Spanish settlements of the New World."
This excursion offers an insightful overview of the colorful island of Ibiza.
You'll begin with a drive from the port to Ses Salines -- a fascinating area marked by 40 salt pits. The salt industry was among the first commercial ventures on the island and is still in full production today. This region of the island is also a magnificent spot for bird-watching, due to the high concentration of avian life that comes here to live and breed (depending on the season and due to the birds being wild animals, the presence of birds is not guaranteed).
Next, head to San José -- the largest town on Ibiza and a charming village. Here, you will visit the old church -- a simple and beautiful example of the local architecture.
Enjoy a typical Ibizan desert of Flao -- a cake made of soft cheese and local herbs, and a taste of coffee.
Finally, you'll continue to Sant Antoni de Portmany for a look at the natural beauty of the bay. Before returning to the ship, spend some free time in Ibiza town and walk through the streets surrounding the port area.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes.
