Description

The White Island is, and always has been, a magnet for hedonists.

Its history reads like a history of pleasure itself.

It is also a story of invasions and migrations, of artists and conmen, of drop-outs and love-ins.

The Carthaginians established a cult to their goddess of sex there, and named the island after Bez, their god of dance.

Roman centurions in need of a bit of down time between campaigns would go to Ibiza to get their kicks. And over the centuries, cultures around the Med have used the island either as a playground or a dump for the kind of people who didn't quite fit in back home, but who you'd probably quite like to meet at a party...This is the history of Ibiza, the fantasy island, framed by one long, golden summer where anything can happen - and it usually does.
