Ibiza came into the international spotlight recently through a hit pop song (“I took a pill in Ibiza” sound familiar?) but this sunny, Spanish island is more than just party central station.

Pine forests and rolling hills partner with deserted beaches to create a paradise that you’ll want to enjoy all day long. Making the best of Ibiza means waking up early enough to catch the sunset, going for a jog along the pristine beaches until you find the best (read: the least populated) beach, spending the morning hiking through mystical forests, and the afternoon floating over coral reefs.

Then, if you still have the energy for it, the parties may begin. Otherwise, tuck in for a deep nights rest before starting all over again the next day. In Ibiza, partying can be the main attraction, but absorbing every part of the natural landscape can be too (or, perhaps, a mix of both).
