Ibiza is a special place for your next summer holiday. It features many activities that can only be done on this island, such as going to the best parties in the world with the hottest DJs, basking under the sun on the most beautiful and glamorous beaches, and above all, discovering this magical destination where hippies have lived for many years.
We have created a list of five things to do when you book hotels in Ibiza.
What to do in Ibiza
Go for a swim at Cala Saladeta cove, one of the loveliest beaches in Ibiza.
Cala Saladeta, which is near the famous Cala Salada cove, is a magical spot on the island of Ibiza and one of the most beautiful beaches in the Balearic Islands. The two coves boast lush vegetation, golden sand and crystal-clear water and are close to the famous village of San Antonio on the western side of the island.
We recommend getting there early to spend the morning on the beach since it tends to fill with people later in the day.
Watch the sun set at Benirrás
After a day at the beach and before getting ready for dinner and a night out on the town, be sure to make time for a unique experience you’ll remember forever. They say that sunsets on this island are absolutely amazing.
Our recommendation about what to do in Ibiza: Make your way to Benirrás. Here, you’ll witness a magical version of an Ibiza sunset. Right when the sun collides with the Mediterranean Sea, you’ll hear the beat of drums and your body will begin to move to the beat as you become immersed in Ibiza’s hippie atmosphere.
A day of shopping in Ibiza’s outdoor markets
The outdoor markets located throughout Ibiza exude the hippie atmosphere of this Balearic Island and sell handicrafts, original clothing to wear on summer days and souvenirs for loved ones back home. You can also get a taste of the local cuisine and listen to live music.
Our recommendation: Although there is an outdoor market in Ibiza every day of the week, you should definitely check out the one at Las Dalias. The main day is Saturday, but a more relaxed version—known as the Night Market—takes place on Monday nights.
What to do in Ibiza above all: Go clubbing
Ibiza’s famous nightlife scene is one of the best in the world. This island is a paradise for people who love to dance or see performances by the top DJs on the planet.
The opening parties mark the start of the summer season in Ibiza. It boasts a calendar filled with the most amazing parties at discos, nightclubs and beach clubs. The events begin around the middle of March and last through mid-September.
Our recommendation about what to do in Ibiza: Check out the 2017 openings calendar and find the party where your favourite DJ will be performing.
Hike to Punta des Moscarter in Portinatx
If you’re a fan of active tourism and the thought of lying under the sun for endless hours bores you, there are many activities in Ibiza for adventurous types. These range from water activities to hiking routes. One of these routes begins at the beach in the port of Portinatx and travels to what is known as “Ibiza’s end of the world”, Punta des Moscarter, located on the northern end of the island. It lasts approximately three hours and you will be guided by a round lighthouse with black and white stripes.
Our recommendation about what to do in Ibiza: Stay at Barceló Portinatx, an adults-only hotel that opens today, 18 May, and relax in its Wellness Area after making your way to the lighthouse at des Moscarter.
