The Ibiza that we love
The idyllic beauty of Ibiza has inspired and captivated artists and travellers for centuries. Turquoise waters, sandy beaches and secluded coves, deep green Mediterranean pinewoods, almond groves, wild flowers, and beautifully simple white Ibicencan architecture give the island a unique and natural charm.
But Ibiza is not only a privileged and attractive environment; it is also endowed with significant conservation value. The island’s geographical location and a great diversity of habitats make Ibiza a hotspot for biodiversity. It is home to a significant number of rare species, some of them unique to the island or considered a high conservation priority, and both the island and its surrounding waters are important refuges for migratory birds and for marine species.
Ibiza also harbours an impressive cultural heritage. Its man-made landscapes, architecture, archaeological sites and other cultural elements give the island an appealing and marked identity.
It’s no surprise therefore that visitors from around the world flock to Ibiza every year. However, increasing pressure from the tourism industry is threatening the island’s fragile natural environment, and action to prevent further environmental damage and loss of biodiversity is urgently needed.
