Question: Is it Ibiza or Eivissa?
What is the correct spelling - Ibiza or Eivissa? And how should it be pronounced?
Answer: Both spellings are correct:
- Ibiza is Spanish and English. In Spanish it should be pronounced 'Ee-bee-tha'. In English it can be pronounced 'Ee-bee-tha' but 'Eye-bee-tha' is acceptable too. Under no circumstances should it be pronounced as if it rhymes with 'eat pizza' (unless you are in the 90s pop group the Vengaboys).
- Eivissa is Catalan.
- Ibiza, Eivissa
- San Antonio, Sant Antoni de Portmany
- Playa, Platja (Playas, Platjes) (beach, beaches)
- Santa Eulalia, Santa Eulària
