Traveling to Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza is one of the most extreme islands in Spain. This is due to its landscape that attracts a lot of visitors. The name of the place is also called Islas Pitiusas or Islands of Pine Trees. Its terrain is very unique combined with rocks and insensitive weather and the island does not receive a lot of rain. Side by side with the pines, there are other crops that grow like figs and almonds over there. It is surprising that more than half of the island is still untouched. It means that the northeast section is still filled up with thick woods.
