This island's overpopulation started in the 1950s, when tourists flocked here, having already invaded the neighbouring holiday spots. The site first attracted ritzier crowds, but today it is distinctly middle-class. Like the other Balearic Islands, it has a rather diverse natural setting, with sandy beaches dominating the coastline, but intersected by cliffs, steeper areas and scenic bays. The inland is also laden with traditional white-washed houses. Some of the more touristy areas here include Ciudad de Ibiza, with the iconic beaches of Ses Figueretes and Playa d'en Bossa, as well as Las Salinas, Playa Cavallet, Cala Bassa, Cala Tarida, Cala Conta, Cala Llonga and El Cana - all of them being long and soft, with shimmering white sands. Besides the main hotspots, one can find surprisingly uncrowded venues set against dramatic landscapes and washed by a warm, calm sea.
