Prospects of a high quality of life and living motivate numerous prospective buyers to buy real estate, which is also evident from our current market report. For example, if we take a look at the island's infrastructure, it is characterized by constant development: Ibiza's main road was recently extended to Santa Eulalia, giving Ibizans excellent transport connections. Anyone who mainly travels by bike will benefit from the expanded cycle paths. A new cycle path through Ibiza Town is currently being completed, which will make it even easier and safer for cyclists to get to Sant José and Santa Eulalia in the future.

Here you can moor your yacht centrally, the harbor is characterized by 89 spots for yachts with a length of up to 60 meters and a depth of 10 meters. With providers such as Marina Ibiza and Ibiza Magna, the island also has excellent mooring opportunities for larger yachts with a length of up to 185 meters. According to the Engel & Völkers Market Report 2023, Ibiza also scores in the area of air traffic, as in the year 2022, the passenger movements in the island's capital reached a record amount of over 8 million.

As a location for buying real estate, Ibiza is convincing worldwide

Ibiza continues to respond to the high demand for high-quality real estate with numerous new construction projects.

A well-known flea market is Las Dalias de Ibiza, which takes place every Saturday in the hippie village of San Carlos. From works of art and souvenirs to natural remedies, visitors will find everything their heart desires here.

For nature lovers who want to buy a property in Ibiza, real estate agent Engel & Völkers Ibiza also recommends the Ses Salines nature reserve.
