The view across the bay at night is quite spectacular as the old buildings of Ibiza Town are illuminated. There are shops for essential provisions as well as the usual numbers of gift and souvenir shops. There are, of course, a very large number of shops in Ibiza Town.
There are many excursions available from the harbour, across to the capital and to other parts of the island as well as to Formentera. Aqualandia Water Park is close by and is a great favourite with both adults and children.
