Which Would You Rather: Ibiza or Barcelona?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Majorca in the first part of June with a good friend. We were planning on starting out with 2 nights in Ibiza before going to Majorca. After hearing what a party island Ibiza is we are now considering going to Barcelona instead and then to Majorca. We are in our late 30's and still have a bit of party left in us but we don't want to go to an island that is specifically designated as a party town with not much else to offer. Also, we'd rather not be surrounded by drunk 20 year olds. So my question is, does Ibiza have other things to offer? Is this a must-see island or should we change our first stop to Barcelona?

BTW - this will be my first trip to Spain. My friend has already been to Barcelona and loved it but wanted to see something new (Ibiza) until we heard about it's reputation.

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!
