Ibiza

Ibiza was once known solely for hosting the wildest party holidays in Europe, where the dance clubs attract the world’s biggest DJs and visitors hungry for raucous nights out. These days, most holiday-goers realise that Ibiza is an island of variety, offering picturesque whitewashed villages, a Blue Flag coastline dotted with gorgeous bays, plus street markets, traditional Spanish cuisine, and more. If you are looking for natural beauty, Ibiza has it in droves: with lush pine forests, ocean coves, and the underwater marvel of the Posidonia Meadows, which you can see by snorkelling or scuba diving.

Visiting this fantasy island also offers you a short route to Formentera, which you can reach by ferry whenever you want a taste of the smallest Balearic island and a peaceful, laid-back day trip.

Cala Llonga

If you are looking for a less party-packed, more serene resort, Cala Llonga is perfect for visitors looking to stay somewhere that’s tailor-made for relaxation and indulgence. This seaside resort is ideal for families, with hotels catering for mums, dads, and children, and attracts visitors from across the whole of Europe. It’s a great spot for English travellers who want to stay close to familiar places to eat, as well as having great shopping opportunities and relaxing beachfront bars.

Portinatx

Portinatx is one of the most picture-perfect holiday destinations you could wish for, with a coastline you have to see to believe. S’Arenal Gros is the largest beach in the resort, and offers both sunbathing and exhilarating watersports. You can also relish the sight of the historical landmark Portinatx Lighthouse from there, which rises from the cliffs like a stick of rock candy.

Playa d’en Bossa

By day, the pristine beachfront of Playa d’en Bossa beckons, while by night Ibiza’s famous nightlife crackles with energy and excitement. There are plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy here if you are bringing the kids, with bouncy castles and trampolines to be found on the beach and with most pubs welcoming children. If you’re visiting for the clubbing experience, you certainly won’t be disappointed with famous venues such as Ushuaia and Bora Bora staying open until morning.

Santa Eulalia

This stunning walled town is large and edged by placid or lively beaches, depending on which you visit. The castle and churches are impressive historic structures that complement the picturesque piazzas that pepper Lagos. The nightlife here is colourful and at times wild, offering visitors bars and clubs that range from elegant to pumping. Boat trips and mountain bike rides are ideal ways to enjoy the scenery.

San Antonio

This is the other main Ibiza resort to consider if you are seeking a holiday filled with megaclubs and hardcore partying. San Antonio Bay is quiet and laid-back and ideal for families, but across the water you’ll reach San Antonio Town where the main nightclubs can be found, and where clubbers from across the world gather for endless nights and some of the best DJ sets on the planet.

Ibiza Town

Ibiza Town is the slickest, most stylish area on the island, where contemporary chic shops and excellent restaurants line the New Town, and traditional cobbled streets and boutiques filter through the Old Town. This is another section of Ibiza where the nightlife is legendary, but there is still plenty of charm and quirk to Ibiza Town so that visitors staying here will find themselves just as mesmerised by Ibiza’s cultural heritage as they will the dance clubs and DJs.

Must visit – The “must visits” on an Ibiza holiday will depend on your reasons for visiting the island. If you are holidaying with family, you’ll love the beaches and the fun to be had in the sea, the hippy markets in Es Canar and San Carlos, the traditional draw of Ibiza Old Town, and the many child-friendly activities such as the waterpark and the Acrobosc Ibiza adventure park.

If you are holidaying for the nightlife you might be more interested in the club events and DJ sets happening while you are there, because the parties are non-stop and the memories unforgettable.


Family fun – Ibiza has 80 fabulous beaches to choose from, where the beautiful Balearics climate can be enjoyed from the sand, and watersports of all kinds can be tried and relished in the sea, many of which are suitable for kids of all ages. For thrillseekers, there are jeep safaris and all sorts of rope-swinging, wall-climbing activities at Acrobosc Ibiza adventure park, while for younger children there’s plenty of fun to be had at Aguamar waterpark. If you have fidgety children, La Cala Bonita on the beach between Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia offers games and fun for the young ones while parents can enjoy their drinks.


Natural attractions – There is intense beauty to be found across Ibiza, with the island’s impressive mountains and pine-coated hills, natural parks and coastal caves. No visit to Ibiza Town is complete without taking in the sight of the legendary 423-metre-high islet of Es Vedra. There are also numerous hidden beaches to discover along the coast, which will take you away from the crowds to a smaller, more private cove from which to soak in the sun or dive into the turquoise sea.


Culture and history – Ibiza has numerous interesting and attractive historical sites to explore and admire, which each help to reveal part of the island’s unique past. The Monumento a los Corsarios in Ibiza Town is a particularly interesting structure, as it was built to honour a group of pirates who once defended Ibiza from the sea in the 18th century. You may also want to make time to see the Chapel of San Ciriaco, the cathedral, and the necropolis, and to explore Ibiza Town’s old town.


Food and drink – While you’ll find restaurants of all kinds and cultures in Ibiza, the traditional cuisine is typically Spanish and features delightful, tempting examples of tapas, paella, and fish stews. If you want to try a local tipple, the liquor hierbas ibicencas has been traditionally made and drunk in Ibiza for over two centuries and will often be served as a free shot following a restaurant meal. Sangria is another Spanish drink that is easy to find in Ibiza and supremely satisfying, with its fruity sweetness and sometimes surprising kick.


Night life – Ibiza’s reputation precedes it, so you will probably already have realised how spectacular a night out on the island can be. If you are looking for a wild clubbing experience, you’ve come to the right place, with its list of world-famous superclubs such as Amnesia, Space, and Pacha. However, if you are simply looking for a holiday enjoying the island’s less raucous pleasures, you can just as easily stick to the beach bars and spend your evenings relishing the Balearics sunset.
