Some people enjoy the sensation of sand in their feet and the salt of the sea running over their body. Others don’t like it all and prefer to swim in a pool. And then there are others who enjoy diving into the colours of an interesting painting, more than anything else.
If you’re in town and are one of those strange, sensitive human beings wandering around Ibiza, here’s a list of art galleries where you can find some good inspiration:
