Things to do in ibiza as a family

As much as this special island is well-loved for its thriving party scene, it’s a huge hit with family holidays too, with short flight times, always sunny skies and cracking Ibiza hotels. So where’s hot to trot with the whole family on the island? We think there’s no better way to savour the Ibiza sunshine than on the beach of course, and our favourite family-friendly option has to be Cala Bassa Beach. Watch on as the little ones excitedly explore the small rock pools with their snorkels; the waters are gentle and calm here, so you can kick back, relax and soak up that Ibiza sunshine. Oh, and if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try out one of the watersports available here too. Venture off on a pedalo or hold on tight for a thrilling banana boating trip. After a long day of sun-soaking, we’d recommend heading over to Cala Bassa Beach Club, where you can cool off with ice cream and beers to your heart's content.

Things to do in Ibiza on a budget

If you’re seeking out a bargain for your Balearic break, then there’s plenty to do in Ibiza that won’t break the bank. With beautiful views around every corner, beaches beyond belief and plenty of pretty towns to explore - who said sun-seeking had to be so expensive? Cheap holidays in Ibiza still offer so much to see, like the famous Hippy Market, located in the beautiful resort of Es Canar. Spend an afternoon or evening strolling around the bustling market stalls discovering bohemian-style gifts, leather goods and artistic tapestries – you could even haggle yourself a good deal on a holiday souvenir if you're lucky.

If you love stretching your legs and exploring entrancing landscapes, then Es Verda island will be right up your street. Climb the hill by the beach that leads to a lookout right over the island, with the beach in the background, the vast blue oceans and mystical uninhabited island out in the forefront – there’s something special about this energetic place that’s quite simply out of this world.



Things to do in Ibiza for stag and hen parties

Get geared up and excited for a radiant fun fest with some of the best bars and clubs in the world right at your fingertips. There’s sure to be a whole load of dancing, singing and late-night disco action… and we’re only just beginning. Top of the list for many stag and hen parties in Ibiza is a catamaran cruise. Take to the waters on a private expedition with the tunes blaring and the champagne on tap, feel the wind through your hair and dance the day away with your best bunch of mates – there’s no feeling quite like it.
