Believe it or not, holidays to Ibiza offer access to some museums and ancient ruins, as well as a cathedral and some admirable historic architecture. It pays to stray away from the big resorts and enjoy the peaceful island life of the locals. For a genuine taste of Balearic cuisine, paella is the way to go, although seafood also comes in the more familiar form of fish and chips if you're missing the taste of home.
Better than food, clubs or history is the luscious landscape of the island. Gentle waves and curving coastline decorated with palm and pine trees are what makes Ibiza holidays truly special. A sunset on the beach is not to be missed.
Of course, one of the top things to do in Ibiza is spend the night dancing in the clubs. Most are massive complexes with capacity for 10,000 people, but there are some more laid-back venues for a chilled night out too.
Being on an island, you'll find a whole range of seaside activities to try out in Ibiza. Water skiing, kite surfing, body boarding, banana boats, parasailing, and jet skiing are all widely available. Those who prefer to stay on dry land can stick to beach volleyball, crazy golf, or just strolling, cycling or rollerblading along the promenades.
Ibiza Town has a historic quarter complete with old town walls and ramparts. An afternoon can easily be lost wandering through the narrow streets and watching the world go by from one of the cosy cafés. Going further afield and exploring the island beyond the resorts is easily done. Hop on a motorbike and discover your own secluded beach or empty forest trail.
Ibiza boasts 15 Blue Flag beaches. A beach is awarded a Blue Flag if they meet high quality standards for cleanliness and management. The party resorts of Ibiza overlook the stunning bays and marinas of the island, with family-friendly beaches found on the north and south coasts. Don't miss the beautiful Blue Flag Cala Vadella beach which is just a 10 minute drive from San Jose. The beach at Cala San Vincente is fabulous, snuggled into a white cove with views out over the ocean and the vast rocky landscape that surrounds it - absolutely perfect.
