Eivissa city is located on the eastern side of the island with the same name, island internationally known as Ibiza. Its economic activities are based essentially on the services sector, with the tourist industry and small businesses being at the heart of these activities.
As it is the main city on the island, Eivissa is responsible for the functions of a capital, which is why it offers many of its services to the rest of the municipalities on the island and Formentera. It is also seat of the headquarters of the Island Council of Eivissa and Formentera, the governing body of the Pitiusan Islands.
The almost 40,000 inhabitants currently living in the city share an area of 11 square kilometres with three beaches: Ses Figueretes, Talamanca and Platja d’en Bossa. The port of Eivissa, situated in a natural bay, where the first settlers on the island have left their mark, is the main sea access to the city, as well as being the basic arrival point, along with the airport, to access the whole island and compulsory stopover in order to reach the island of Formentera.
The municipality boasts of different sport and cultural facilities, which offer locals and visitors the possibility of practising sport, going to concerts or seeing theatre performances, besides other leisure activities.
