is one of the Balearic islands belonging to Spain. Covering an area of 571.6 sq km (220.7 sq mi), it is the third largest of the Balearic islands, which include Majorca, Minorca and Formentera, and some fifty or so smaller islands. Ibiza is one of the two Pine Islands or Pityuses, along with Formentera.
The highest point in Ibiza is Sa Talaiassa, which is 475 m (1,558 ft) above sea level. The island experiences a Mediterranean climate. Hottest month is August, when average high temperature rises to 30°C (86°F). Coldest month is January, with average low temperature of 8.1°C (46.6°F).
Human habitation in Ibiza goes back to the Phoenician period, around 654 BC, when Phoenician settlers established a port here called Ibossim, in honor of their deity Bes. The settlement became known as Ebusus to the Romans. When the Greeks arrived here, they called the group of islands comprising Ibiza and Formentera Pityûssai, for which is derived Pityuses.
Today Ibiza is one of the major tourist destinations in Spain. It is famous for its often riotous nightlife particularly in Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni. The main language spoken on the island is Catalan, but Spanish is widely used as well. Despite it being a major vacation island, large sections of Ibiza are today given to protection as a World Heritage Site. The Ibiza World Heritage Site
was inscribed by UNESCO in 1999 to recognize the biodiversity and culture of the island.
