Spain's insider take:

After a recent clean-up of the notorious nightlife scene, Ibiza is now attracting what some would call a more discerning breed of globe-trotter, who come not only to party but also to enjoy the island's myriad pocket-sized beaches and azure water, pretty rolling countryside, and yoga retreats. To tap into the Ibiza of the 1960s, head for Platja Benirras, where hippies play drums as the sun sets; Cala Salada, to get away from the crowd; Cala d'Hort, for lovely views over the monolithic rock of Es Vedra; and Cala Jondal, to bathe with the beautiful people. Boats leave from the harbor in Eivissa and Sant Antonio to ferry visitors to beaches inaccessible by car. The other often-overlooked attraction is Ibiza Town itself. The D'Alt Villa (old town) is a delightful jumble of cobblestone streets and 16th-century town houses, crowned by an ancient cathedral and crumbling Moorish castle. You'll also find the Museu Arqueológic, which gives a good overview of the history of both Ibiza and Formentera (3 Plaça Catedral; 3-94-971-301-771;; closed Mon), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Ronda Narcís Puget; 34-971-302-723). It's well worth dedicating a morning to exploring these honey-colored ramparts. Predictably, it's become good for shopping, too, with innumerable boutiques, many of them stocking natural fabrics and showcasing talented island designers, as well as some gourmet delis offering island cheeses, charcuterie, and designer salt.
