"My favourite destination is Ibiza - I love the whole luxe hippy vibe - and the fact that it's so chic and fashionable for shopping and nights out, yet there are beaches which are totally unspoilt.
"Ibiza's baby sister - Formentera - is a short boat ride away, and boasts the most gorgeous sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters. I stay at the beautifully designed, urban, minimal El Hotel de Pacha in Ibiza Town, which is conveniently positioned just metres away from the legendary club. What more could a girl ask for?"
Often overlooked as little more than a budget travel option where lobster-like British travellers go to disgrace themselves, Ibiza is in fact a largely unspoilt island of traditional towns and villages and sublime natural landscapes. Located approximately 50 miles off the coast of mainland Spain, the island is third largest of the Balearics.
Large sections of the island, including 'God's Finger', have also been awarded the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island of Ibiza also possesses a plethora of beautiful sandy beaches, perfect for families looking to enjoy a summer break with a relaxed ambience and an enviable climate.
Ibiza Town: Capital of the island, Ibiza Town lies on the south east coast and is undoubtedly its hub of activity. There is something for all to enjoy, from those looking for vibrant nightlife to those seeking a more traditional outlook on the island. Unique in character and feel, the town offers a number of historic sights to visit.
Formentera: To add an extra dimension to your Ibiza visit, a day trip to its sister island of Formentera is a must. Located just three miles south of Ibiza, Formentera is renowned for its largely unspoilt scenery and pristine beaches, while its lazy atmosphere is the antithesis of the often hectic pace of its sister isle.
Nightlife: No analysis of, or visitor to, Ibiza can ignore the nightlife on the island; for many this remains the sole reason to visit. Every summer the island heaves to the sounds of the world's leading DJs, with clubs such as Pacha, Privilege and Es Paradis attaining iconic status and attracting tourists by the thousands.
