Ibiza: The 'white island'
The Spanish island of Ibiza, one of the Balearic Islands, has earned a reputation for being a Mecca for partygoers and young holidaymakers. But this historic island also has another side – popular with hippies and artists during the 70’s, Ibiza has long been a chic retreat for worldly and artistic travelers.
Our luxury MSC cruise ships call at the ‘white island’ (so named for the many white washed houses) enabling passengers to visit Ibiza town and the surrounding area. Ibiza town does have a dual personality, being a pleasant, historical and typical Spanish seaside resort during the day, transformed into a clubbing haven at night.
However, Ibiza can cater to all tastes, and the variety of our excursion packages pays testament to the range of activities to do here. Once off the cruise ship, you can spend a very pleasant day exploring Ibiza old town (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) or on one of the island’s 80+ beaches.
If you have euro to spend, head to one of the islands’ many handicraft markets which sell items by local artists including paintings and jewelry, and which make original souvenirs. The Archeological Museum is located in the Dalt Vila (old town) and contains a collection of works of art from the island dating from prehistoric times to the 15th century.
As we always strive to offer passengers the best deals on local sights, simply select your preferred type of excursion from the MSC Cruises program.
