How to get there…
The most common way to travel to Ibiza is by plane.

From the UK you can buy direct flights to Ibiza from charter companies such as Thomsonfly, First Choice or Monarch. Budget airlines such as EasyJet also offer direct flights to Ibiza.
For the romantic among us, you may find that travelling to Ibiza by ferry from one of the major Spanish ports is a more interesting option. This mode of transport would, however, be a lot slower than flying!!
