I recommend you to try and find a hostel near Ibiza Town (hostels or capming are the cheapest form of sleep) as its a really great part of Ibiza where you get a really good feel for the place and its easy to explore other parts of the island.

Hostels are usually between 8 - 15 euros. Check out the HI website at you generally need to be a member to stay, but you can get membership free either when you apply for an ISE card or pay a small membership fee when you arrive, also at there website above. Also try and google a search for hostels in Ibiza, when you find a hostel you like - google the name in and see if you can find reviews or even a hmepage where you can contact them directly.

Most people in Ibiza speak either Spanish, Italian or a dialect that sounds a bit like Spanish with a scouser accent.

I hope you have a great time and if you can, try and make a visit to Formentera, Ibiza's sister island as the beaches are incredible! Ferry from Ibiza Town Harbour.

Thanks Gem...

So basically staying in the town is most easiest way
to access all places.
I only speak English will it be a problem in that case?

How much does it cost for island hopping or a boat to Formentera?
I don't wanna get "chop" easily.

Anyway, appreciate your help.

Hi again Kody,

Glad you found it helpful, I would suggest that you shouldn't be put off because you only speak English, but its always useful to carry a spanish travelmate with you, as it's always useful to be able to speak a bit of the native tounge and if you get into any difficulties you'll know what to say. I would say that most of south Ibiza is aimed for tourists anyway, so you should be fine.

I recommended staying in Ibiza Town as its a really cool place, its the main town in the whole of Ibiza most bus lines start and finish there, so its probably the most conveniant and ultimately it also depends what you want to get out of your time there, perhaps a remote campsite in the north would suit you to a tea as its beautifully unspoilt and there are still reminents of the hippie movement around!?

A ferry to Formentera leaves from Ibiza harbour all day long, apart from siesta times 1-3. The price can vary from 10 euros return to a staggering 30 per person, but as you're going in September the tourist season is dying down a bit so hopefully you won't get ripped off - if you feel like you are getting a raw deal just don't pay!

Also recommend a trip to the old part of Ibiza Town, especially to the pirate castle fab views and you get this really cool eerie feeling as you wind through the small walkways, there is a museum which is closed on a Monday aswell I think.

Have fun, any more problems my e-mail is:

Ciao Ciao

I would like to do a bit of clubbing on the island. I hear that entrance fees are extortionate. What is the average admission? Any way to get fliers or to get on the guest list?

yeah these clubs are kinda expensive but many of them totally worth it!!!El Divino, Pacha both worth a visit!so much fun!!!!You are looking around 30 euros entry, depending on events and the off peak season clubs are cheaper as they are aimed towards the local people!Manumission at Priveledge is great, totally crazy and very surreal!!!sundays at Space are cool, it goes on all day and through to the night and has an al fresco terrace!drinks are ridiculously expensive so be prepared!!!even water is extortionate!As for guestlists, theyre mainly reserved for journalist and media people the guys that are working our there over the summer!but try your best at blagging and you can save yourself a lot of money, yeah its kinda tacky but when your on a budget who cares about a bit of pride!!!saying you work for a reputable magazine usually works easily!
