Including the beaches and the most famous places of nightlife.
Autobuses Voramar El Gaucho sl manages numerous connections on the island, including the two routes for theEivissa Airport (9 and 10).
Several lines, of course, are operational exclusively from May to October. Bus tickets can be purchased directly on board, and the price varies depending on the distance of the journey. The cost is not excessive: you go from a minimum of € 1,65 for medium / short distances, to a maximum of € 4,00, to move between extremes of the island, or to reach the airport.
Except for the airport, the frequencies in summer are hardly less than 30 minutes. Sometimes, on some lines, you could even wait an hour.
The bus is undoubtedly a cheap way to get around Ibiza and around the island. If you traveled many, it is not obvious, however, that it is the cheapest way. Above all if you intend to move around with a certain frequency.
Ibiza, you know, is the place par excellence of nightlife. And Discobus is the means by which to move around the premises of the island, during the night. These are 5 bus lines, running from midnight to 06: 00 in the morning. Here, below, the Discobus lines:

CAR AND SCOOTER
The car, and the scooter, are the best way to move around Ibiza, without being subject to destination and time constraints.
The scooter is ideal for moving around Ibiza, during the day, and for making short trips around the city. Compared to the car, you will have much easier parking, and you will avoid the usual summer traffic jams (especially in August).
The car is perfect to get around the island and, in particular, in the evening and when you leave the city, going through dirt roads is poorly lit; what happens not infrequently. It is also the ideal solution for families. Obviously, the traffic and the difficulty of parking in high season are to be taken into account.
If you had to opt for the car, we recommend booking in advance, directly at the airport.
