Ibiza, or Eivissa, is the third largest island in the Balearics, and together with Formentera it forms the "Islas Pitiusas", which is Greek for "islands of pine trees". Its landscape is extreme: next to the hardy pines are olive, fig, and almond trees on harsh and rocky terrain, which receives minimal rainfall.

Although the island developed as a resort for the laid-back hippies of Europe in the 1960s, a look at its rugged coastline today shows that its sandy beaches are packed with popular tourist developments. With roughly 80,000 inhabitants, and an average annual temperature of 14 to 21.5 degrees Celsius, the island welcomes on its shores more than a million tourists of varying backgrounds—amongst them hippies, nudists, and night clubbers—every year. Notorious as the ultimate European party place, Ibiza is the birthplace of the rave, and houses some of Spain’s biggest and most famous discos. Areas such as San Antonio have become known as hedonistic party destinations, but the older areas of Ibiza Town and more relaxed resorts along the coast and the inland villages attract a varied, sophisticated crowd.
