Ibiza is a treasure trove of architecture steeped in rich history. You can meander through the narrow streets of Ibiza Old Town to visit the Castle of Ibiza or simply explore within Dalt Vila’s city walls to take in its cultural treasures, landmarks, and panoramic sea views.

Marina Ibiza

Located in the southwest area of the island, right in the heart of Ibiza, and 11 miles from Formentera lies Marina Ibiza.

One of the most prestigious (and expensive) marinas in Europe, Marina Ibiza seduces Hollywood’s finest and the super-rich with its luxurious, laid-back lifestyle and celebrated restaurants radiating with spectacular entertainment.
The marina’s renowned Lío Restaurante Club Cabaret offers Cirque Du Soleil-like performances during dinner hours and transforms into a lounge/club until the wee hours of the morning.

Most yachts want to have a berth slip in Marina Ibiza just to go have dinner at Lio which is why you’ll likely find celebrities and the veritable Who’s Who occupying this exclusive marina.

Marina Ibiza offers berths for superyachts up to 60m and even megayachts of greater lengths. Wifi, electricity, concierge service, laundry service as well as advanced technical and nautical services are also available.
