4 Hours in Ibiza

This Balearic island has much more to offer than a bustling party scene. For starters, it's home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the Mediterranean, with breathtaking cliffs and red-clay farmland bursting with orange and olive groves.

Visit the beaches near Es Cubells in the south, where the green and turquoise waters lap gently on hidden beaches.

Soak in Las Cascadas's thermal pools at the five-star Hotel Hacienda. Guests can float in eight different bubbling seawater pools located on a cliff 180 meters above the sea (hotelhacienda-ibiza.com).

Shop for jewelry along the winding passages of Ibiza town. Other boutiques sell luxury-brand designers as well as upscale versions of Ibiza's flowing hippie-chic skirts and dresses.

Explore the historic old town of Dalt Vila. The walled city—a UNESCO World Heritage site—houses a fortress-style Catalan cathedral and a Moorish castle.

Eat at KM5, a hip restaurant and bar located on the road to St. Josep. Lounge in Moroccan-style tents while devouring Argentinean beef and sipping strong, sweet mojitos (km5-lounge.com).
