A quick overview of Ibiza
There’s so much more to Ibiza than yoga retreats and the world famous nightlife of Playa d’en Bossa and San Antonio. Some of the most stunning Balearic beaches are right here. Sandy coves, pine tree-clad hillsides and wildflowers make up the surrounding landscape of this diverse island. You'll find eclectic crowds where families, party-goers, couples and locals enjoy the sun side-by-side. There are so many ways to experience Ibiza, be it the colourful bohemian markets, world-famous clubbing scene or Phoenician architecture.

How to get to Ibiza
There are regular flights to Ibiza from almost all major cities in the UK and Europe. Flights from the UK are usually between 2.5 and 3 hours long. The airport is just outside the island’s capital, and a taxi transfer to the capital takes no longer than 10 minutes and costs about 15 Euros. A much cheaper option is to use the public transport service which covers almost the entire island. Tickets cost between 3 and 5 Euros.
Where to stay in Ibiza
There are numerous nightclubs and a selection of lively bars along the western coast in San Antonio. San Antonio is located in the western region of Ibiza. The region is renown for warm coves, sparkling beaches, gorgeous scenery and wild nightlife. From Blue Flag beaches to its fascinating history, yoga retreats and colourful nightlife, the capital of Ibiza - Eivissa - caters to all holidaymakers. With towering fortress walls and ancient architecture the capital provides the best way to experience Ibiza's cultural heritage. Also, a short field trip to the Puig des Molins archaeological site and museum can turn out to be quite educational for youngsters and adults alike. Apart from being a quiet family-friendly destination dotted with coves, rich forestry and beaches, San Juan is also known for its historic remnants and vast wilderness with plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. San Jose is known as the liveliest region on the island and home to Playa d'en Bossa - the famous 3km long beach that turns into a nightclub after sundown. Apart from the dynamic nightlife, the region also boasts breathtaking scenery, white sandy beaches, historical sites and peaceful, sheltered coves. Opposite San Jose is Santa Eulalia - a relaxed and family-friendly resort with few spots to visit after a long day at the beach. There are plenty of art galleries in this region and it’s famous for being the island's culinary centre. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in outdoor activities here, and the resort is particularly well-known for being a haven for cyclists, hikers, runners and climbers alike.
Beaches in Ibiza
There are over 80 beaches in Ibiza, 15 of which fly the Blue Flag, and all have something wonderful to offer. Relax and enjoy an afternoon on family-friendly beaches like Es Canar and Portinatx, or mingle with livelier crowds on Playa d'en Bossa in San Jose where you'll find the beating heart of Ibiza's nightlife. In any case, there are many enchanting coves and beautiful beaches scattered all over the White Isle that can be either an exciting getaway or a calm oasis. You'll find plenty of bars and restaurants dotted around all beaches and coves in Ibiza.
Golfing holiday in Ibiza
As all lovers of the game know - Spain is the place to go when looking for attractive golf courses. Though Ibiza does boast an extensive roster of courses, there are two excellent ones on the island, both in Roca Llisa and next to each other. One of the courses is a challenging 18 holes par 72, while the other one is a rather relaxing 9 holes course - both are beautifully located, well-kept and excellent for upping your game.
Things to do in Ibiza
If you’ve had enough of the beach, and are looking for a different type of pastime, take a walk down the cobbled streets of the old quarter in Eivissa and discover ancient relics with World Heritage status. A fortress lies within the medieval walls providing incredible views across Ibiza. Archaeological sites Sa Caleta and Puig des Molins necropolis are a must see, with a history spanning as far back as 7 BC. Sa Talaiassa is the highest mountain on the island and you can reach the summit by bike or on foot - there is a lovely trail going up the mountain. Book a horse riding session in the famous Ibiza Horse Valley, where most of the horses have undergone rehabilitation after a series of mistreats, and have now beautifully adapted to their natural surroundings.
Kids activities in Ibiza
There are numerous amusement parks on the island, including the usual and floating water parks. The most prominent parks are Sirenis Aquagames in San Antonio and Aguamar Water Park near Eivissa. Floating water parks can be found on almost every family-friendly beach on the island. Towering fortress walls and ancient architecture in Eivissa is the best way to experience and get to know the island's cultural heritage. That and a short field trip to the Puig des Molins archaeological site, including the museum, can turn out to be quite fun and educational to youngsters and adults alike.
Getting around Ibiza
There are more than a couple of ways to get around the island. The simplest way is by taking a taxi which costs about 1.5 Euros per kilometre. Taxis can also be pre booked which costs an additional 1.20 Euros. With transfers costing between 3 and 5 Euros, public transport is the cheapest option. Public transport covers the entire island and there are more buses in the circulation during summer and high season, but prices remain the same. Another option is car hire, which could prove to be an excellent choice if travelling with toddlers or small children. Nowadays, car hire is usually done online, and you just pick up the car at the airport. Prices for car hire vary, and it is always advisable to check most offers and compare insurance, gas and vehicle prices before booking.
Eating out in Ibiza
Thanks to it’s growing popularity as a holiday destination, Ibiza has become a gastronomic haven; but since Ibiza is an upscale holiday destination, a bit pricier articles on restaurant and bar menus are expected. However, here are a couple of spots, which we believe are, for every pocket: Street Ibiza is a fast food joint in San Antonio with a vast selection of hamburgers. Vermutería Ajo Blanco is a moderately priced tapas bar outside Eivissa where tapas is turned into a decent meal. Shamarkanda in San Juan is a gorgeous little restaurant with wonderful decor and an even better menu.
Of course Ibiza is famous for its rampant nightlife scene and to confirm it just visit Amnesiain San Antonio; but if clubbing is not your cup of tea, you can opt for a lighter choice. Bars and cafes on the western coast, like Café del Mar and Sunset Ashram, hold a perfect location for watching famous Ibiza sundowns. But as long as you’re in San Antonio or Eivissa, expect some electricity in the atmosphere. For a completely serene night out, head to the north eastern parts of the island where bars open at 9 in the morning and are closed by 11 in the evening.
Shopping in Ibiza
There are lots of shopping choices in Ibiza, from charming street markets, stores and boutiques to supermarkets. La Sirena, which is an Ibiza company, has stores all over the island selling mostly clothes, but the real treat is snooping through street market stalls in San Jordi, San Juan, San Miguel, San Carlos and Santa Eulalia. These are mostly artisan markets, selling all kinds of trinkets, knick-knacks and whatnots, but second hand merchandise can be found on the stalls as well.
