Things To Do

Don’t let people fool you, Ibiza is more than just a party place.

Explore this magical island from head to toe. Here are some recommendations for your trip.

OLD CITY

The old city is located down town Ibiza and you will fall in love with the architecture and views from the top.

During summer there are lots of cool places to shop and have a good meal.

If you want to learn about history of the island I recommend going to the Necropolis of Puig des Molins.

The museum is divided in 5 salons and you will find out more about Roman rituals, the extraordinary culture, jewelry and more.

FORMENTERA

It is a small island located infant of Ibiza, it has amazing beaches and a beautiful white town that will make you fall in love.

To get to Formentera you need to take a ferry. I recommend taking the earliest ferry to make sure you are able to enjoy your day, you can come back in the afternoon or night, the last one its at 9 pm. There are also places to stay in case you want to stay over night.

SES SALINES NATURAL PARK

The salt production activity carried out in this area for hundreds of years  formed a unique landscape, a wetland where plenty of birds roost and nest in their migrations. Countless ecological, aesthetic, historical and cultural values concentrated on 3,000 hectares of land and 13,000 marine hectares.

One of the jewels of the park is this defense tower built to protect the inhabitants of Ibiza from pirate attacks. It was built in the 16th century to defend the salt cargo boats, hence the name. From the tower’s base you’re able to see the typical fishermen’s huts where local fishermen keep their boats, near are the first salt ponds of the park. If you you go up the hill behind the tower, you can see a fantastic panoramic view of Playa d’en Bossa beach.

SNORKELING AND DIVING

The clarity of the waters, the caves and the flora and fauna biodiversity, and the water temperature, make Ibiza a perfect place to enjoy diving and snorkeling.

If you are not an expert, there are plenty of schools where you can take the diving course, or you can simply buy or rent the snorkeling equipment at a store.

WALKING TOUR

If you are into hiking, you are going to love this!

Every Wednesday there is a group of people that get together to walk around a private land in the island. You will have access to spectacular views and sceneries. It lasts approximately 2 hours and it has a volunteer cost of $10 euros. The people are super friendly and at the end there is some coffee and cake meal. Highly recommend it!

BEACHES AND BEACH CLUBS

The best part of Ibiza are its crystal clear beaches surrounded by nature and beach clubs.

Its great to be able to enjoy beautiful days at the beach with great meals and wine.

In most beaches you will find perfect places to sit and relax all day, you won’t want to leave.
