Until the sixties, Ibiza belonged to the Ibizans, and only a few artists, poets and ... more
writers lived in this paradise. Then the flower-children arrived, the hippies and drop-outs. In the last 30 years however, mass tourism has taken over and unfortunately destroyed much of the charm of Ibiza and Formentera. But not everything on the islands has been spoiled. 'Bed and burgerbar' building has reached saturation point, and a visit to the pine islands' (the 'Pityussae', as the Greeks called them) is still worthwhile today. There's an unending wealth of hidden beauty spots to be discovered, and this new edition of the book helps you to find the best of Ibiza and Formentera, whether you travel by car, bicycle, or on foot.
