That may not be a scientific fact but it does provide the answer to why the Spanish island draws two million tourists, mostly young adults, to the island’s beaches and electronic dance music clubs every year. It’s a modern-day Nirvana where little is forbidden.

The visitors, who come for the beauty or the climate or the dance parties or the sexual debauchery, fly into Ibiza International Airport, the eighth-busiest airport in Spain.

Commercial planes fly into Ibiza but visitors can also rent private charter jets from Paramount Business Jets or other carriers that service the island.

How did Ibiza get its party reputation?

Ibiza Party

Ibiza is said to be the place where visitors either find themselves or lose themselves. There are a lot of hot bodies showing plenty of skin on the beaches and in the clubs of Ibiza during the summer. The party-til-you-drop island is a favorite of European tourists who come to the island for the beaches that line its 100-mile coastline and for its electronic dance music clubs, most of which open around the end of May. It draws a lot of young people because it takes a lot of stamina to be sunning all day and dancing all night. The best DJs in the world come to Ibiza in the summer, making it the ultimate destination for clubbers. Kryoman, the robot on stilts with pyrotechnic guns, got his start on Ibiza. The EDM generation lives to party.

Alfredo Fiorito, the Argentine-born DJ credited with inventing the Balearic beat, said the freedom of the island and its flesh-filled dance clubs can lead to creativity or self-destruction. Ask two people to smell a flower, he said, and one will rip it to pieces, the other just smell it and leave it on the plant.

What is Ibiza known for?

It’s known as the place to party on the beach during the day and dance to world-famous DJs playing electronic dance music at night.

What is electronic dance music?

According to Britannica.com, electronic dance music, also known as EDM, is an umbrella term for a panoply of musical styles that emerged in the mid-1980s. EDM encompasses styles ranging from beatless ambient music to 200-beats-per-minute hardcore, with house music, techno, drum and bass, dubstep, and trance among the most-notable examples. Most importantly, the music is created specifically for the social function of dancing all night. A strong emphasis on rhythm is therefore common to most styles of EDM, while ambient music, which is less focused on maintaining a beat, provides an aural cushion for settling down at the end of the night.

Is it easy to get into the dance clubs of Ibiza?

At the end of the 1980s, when the dance clubs were all-night rave parties with many in the audience high on ecstasy, Ibiza cracked down and forced the dance parties, many of which were held outdoors, into clubs. To keep out trouble, many of the high end club charge big prices to get in to keep an elite clientele and keep out those who just come to get wasted on the beach. It can cost $100 just to get in a club with a round of drinks costing twice that.

When was Ibiza discovered?

It is believed Ibiza might have been inhabited since 5000 BC. However, the inhabitants that first took advantage of Ibiza’s strategic location between North Africa and the Pyrenees were the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC.

Why did hippies come to Ibiza?

Ibiza Island

As the hippy movement grew in the 1960s, hippies were drawn to the peace and serenity - any mysticism - of Ibiza. The counter-cultural, anti-war activists rebelled against capitalism, finding places like India and Nepal more suited to their alternative naturalist lifestyle. Ibiza’s location, climate and remoteness were attractive to the peace-loving hippies looking for a place to meditate and experiment with drugs. Perhaps it was no accident that the ecstasy-taking electronic dance music fans of the 1980s came to the island following the acid-tripping hippies of the ’60s.

The hippies lived in communes and had markets and festivals, which brought intellectuals, artists and writers to the island. Music festivals and nightclubs grew over the next several decades.

The hippies who settled on the island in the 1960s said certain places on the island had so much natural energy that they could be used for spiritual journeys and practices. Some of the places they deemed magical were Benirrás beach on the north side of the island and an old quarry from which it is believed stones for the Egyptian pyramids were mined. They called the quarry Atlantis, after the mythical lost island. In its walls are altars and carved drawings, many of them Buddhist or Hindu gods, including Shiva, the destroyer god who destroys all that is unnecessary so as to recreate something better. He is the god of chaos and like many other deities has a good and a bad side. He is the protector of people who live outside of convention and the god of creativity but is also the god of drunkenness, debauchery and sexual pleasure. His traits are reflected in the astrological sign of Scorpio, which is said to be the sign that rules the Magic Island. The island’s transformation from introspective winters to partying summers reflects the bipolar forces of Tanit and Shiva.

Why is the soil of Ibiza prized?

There are no snakes on Ibiza and the neighboring island of Formentera. That was shocking to the ancient Phoenicians who settled on the island because Majorca and other islands in the archipelago chain off Spain’s eastern coast had snakes. It must be magic of the gods, they thought, and so they named the island Aiboshim, “The island of Bes.” Bes was an Egyptian protector god of dreams and fertility known for his ability to keep curses – and snakes – away. For centuries, people believed that the island’s soil was sacred, blessed by Bes to protect its inhabitants. In fact, travelers to the island gathered up some of the soil to place around their houses to protect them. Today, some people still wear little vials of the soil around their necks to ward off bad energy.

That wasn’t the only thing Bes was known for, however. He was considered the god of dance and music, and associated with the joyfulness, drunkenness, sex and debauchery of partying - which is reflected in the Ibiza of today.

Why is Ibiza called the White Island

In the fifth century, the Carthaginians conquered the island to export salt from its salt mines. The population grew so quickly that the houses and streets were covered to lime to keep away the plague. That’s when it got its nickname, “The White Island” and its association with Tanit, the White Goddess. Tanit also had the ability to chase away poisonous animals like snakes but she was also god of the moon, love, prosperity - and death. She was the guide of the dead in the underworld. To appease this goddess, according to legend, the first-born children of wealthy families were ritualistically sacrificed.

What mystical rock rises from the sea near Ibiza?

Es Vedrá

Natives believe the stone rose up to protect the island. Picture Source.

Just southwest of Ibiza, Es Vedrá, a 1,300-foot rock rises from the Mediterranean Sea. Natives believe the stone rose up to protect the island. While this is myth, many scholars do believe the rock has magnetic energy like that of Stonehenge or the pyramids. Es Vedrá is also one point of a triangle like the Bermuda Triangle where ships, planes and birds lose their orientation. The scientific explanation for all this may lie in the shifting tectonic plates below the western part of the Mediterranean Sea.

Is there a quiet side of Ibiza?

Visitors not into or tired of dance-partying can lounge by a pool, go to a spa, share a delicious meal, go to a fashion show or a yoga class. Or, of course, go shopping. There are plenty of hippy markets up and running or you can go high-end designer shopping for clothes, jewelry or souvenirs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I have to stop for customs when I fly on a private jet?

    Passengers on all international private charter flights will have to stop at customs. In certain countries, you may have to go through customs at a specific port of entry; for example, you must stop in Tahiti to perform customs checks en route to Bora Bora. You’ll also need to stop at the first port of entry when entering the U.S. from Mexico.
  • How much rest does the crew need before they can depart again?

    Crew members are required to have a 10-hour rest period within each 24-hour cycle. The maximum duty day is 14 hours and must be followed by a 10-hour rest period at their hotel. When scheduling a flight, operators usually account for 12 hours of rest instead of 10. These extra two hours allow the crew time to get to their hotel, rest for the required time, and return to the airport.
  • How long does a fuel stop for a private jet flight take?

    The average fuel stop takes 45–60 minutes. To speed up fuel stops, the operator, or pilots may call ahead, so a fuel truck is waiting for the aircraft on arrival. For smaller jets, a fuel stop can take as little as 30 minutes.
  • Will my private jet charter use the same airport as a commercial airline?

    No. When you charter a private jet, you generally fly into a private airport. However, you could access the same airports as a commercial airline if you request to do so or if there are no private airport options. However, using a large mainstream airport like Los Angeles International or London Heathrow is often a bad choice for private jets, as flying to a smaller regional private airport is much faster and often makes for a more luxurious experience.
  • Is the age of an aircraft a safety factor?

    Aircraft age is not a safety factor. However, if the aircraft is older and hasn’t been refurbished properly, it may cause flyers some inconvenience, such as overheating, faulty air conditioning, or faulty plumbing in the lavatory.
  • How much luggage am I allowed to bring on a private jet?

    As a rule of thumb, each seat on a light or midsize jet equates to one passenger and one item of luggage. Each item of luggage is considered to be the standard 23 kilograms, or about 50 lbs. Large jets are designed for long-range trips, which typically involve longer stays, so you can carry more than one item of luggage per person.
  • Are there aircraft that are wheelchair accessible?

    There are many aircraft that are wheelchair accessible. Most of them are large jets or above and have a straight aisle. If the jet has a zigzag aisle – like the Falcon 900 – it will be difficult to maneuver the wheelchair onboard the aircraft. You’ll also need the right type of wheelchair; many motorized wheelchairs won’t fit and can’t be collapsed. If this is the case, you’ll need a smaller, temporary wheelchair. Some aircraft operators have smaller wheelchairs that can be used. Please speak with your Paramount private jet expert to review your aircraft options.
  • Can I fly with large sums of cash?

    Yes, you can. This is a common occurrence for many private jet clients. You can fly with up to $5 million in cash as long as you declare that cash when coming through customs. For domestic trips, there’s no limit and no need to declare it.
  • Which private jets come with flight attendants?

    In the United States, large jets and above are required to have flight attendants onboard; in Europe, flight attendants are used on midsize jets and above. Flight attendants require their own seats. Larger jets and above have a jump seat near the cockpit for the flight attendant to use, meaning the attendant generally stays out of the cabin.
  • Which airports offer ramp access, allowing the client to drive their car right up to their private jet?

    Private jet clients can often have a limo drive them right up to the private jet, or even drive their own car to the plane. That said, different airports have different policies, and some may not offer ramp access. Please speak with your Paramount Aviation Advisor to review your options for a given trip.
  • Do private jets come with Wi-Fi?

    Many private jets do have Wi-Fi, and it’s increasingly available free of charge on U.S. domestic flights. On international flights, prices range from $3.00-$8.50 USD per megabyte used. This means that opening up social media sites that are rich in images and videos could quickly cost you $20 – and downloading a feature-length movie could cost thousands!
  • When is on-demand private jet charter better than buying a block of hours?

    Private jet charter can be a lot cheaper than buying a block of hours for a one-way flight, as you can access floating fleets or an empty leg to reduce the cost. With a block of hours, the price covers a round trip. If you only fly one-way, you are effectively paying double.
  • What is a carbon-neutral flight?

    Every aircraft burns jet fuel and emits a certain amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. This can be offset via one of several carbon offset programs that allow private jet clients to purchase a certain number of carbon credits to offset the emissions from their flights. A carbon-neutral flight is one that offsets the carbon emissions it uses via a formal process.
  • Can I have a flexible departure time for my private jet flight?

    Yes, it is possible to have a flexible departure when flying privately. Operators typically offer a 30-minute to two-hour window, but you can request a longer window as long as it doesn’t interfere with the maximum crew duty day or their next scheduled flight. Please confirm with your Paramount Aviation Advisor at the time of booking your jet.
  • When should I hire a Boeing Business Jet?

    Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) have unique amenities that extend far beyond sheer size and are often equipped with 1-2 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms (one more of those bathrooms may even offer stand-up showers.) These airliner-based executive aircraft also feature tall or ‘stand-up’ cabins that are also longer and wider than more typical corporate aircraft.
  • How soon can I have a private jet ready from the time I call in the request?

    Generally speaking, with as little as 4 hours of notice. However, we have had wheels up in as little as 32 minutes from the time our client called us to book the flight and had them in the air. It depends on a few factors, such as how long it takes for the pilots to arrive at the airport (generally, there is a 2-hour call-out time for the pilots), and whether the aircraft is ready to go at the airport with no repositioning needed. Our Jet Card members enjoy faster booking since they have funds on account and can confirm a flight with a simple email.
  • Can I access my luggage while in flight?

    On most private jets, you will be able to access your luggage during the flight. That’s because luggage and passengers are situated on the same level. This is in contrast to commercial airlines, where checked luggage is stored in a cargo hold. On large private jets, luggage is often stored in a compartment behind the lavatory, which means easy access to your bags.
  • When are private jet charter landing and takeoff slots applicable?

    A landing or takeoff slot is simply a small window of time in which your aircraft is scheduled to fly in or out of the airport. You will need a landing and takeoff slot if you fly to a high-density airport in the United States or one that is hosting a special event with a significant number of aircraft arriving and departing. If you’re flying internationally, you will need a landing and takeoff slot for all major European cities. Please check with your Paramount Aviation Advisor at the time of booking for a specific route.
  • What kind of in-flight catering is available on a private jet?

    Other than the standard snacks and drinks, you can order local cuisine options for your catering on board. In short, anything that doesn’t need to be cooked can be ordered; hot food must be precooked and then warmed on board.
  • Can I bring pets with me on private jet flights?

    Of course! Just let us know in advance. The majority of the operators and aircraft owners allow pets onboard. In some cases, a small cleaning fee may apply. That said, there are specific requirements that must be met when traveling with your pet, including making sure that all documentation and vaccination records for your pet(s) are correct and up-to-date. Dogs and cats must also be at least eight weeks old and weaned when traveling within the U.S.
