Attractions and Things to Do in Ibiza

Updated on February 22, 2011

Ibiza Sightseeing

For a small island Ibiza has plenty to show you on your holiday; beautiful beaches, enchanting countryside, history and culture. In land you will find beautiful white washed villages, each with their own ancient church. Explore the narrow lanes, browse the local shops and then, perhaps, enjoy a lazy lunch on a shady terrace.

'Self Drive' Island Tours is the best way to see Ibiza. Hire a car and spend the day cruising around the island. And since the island is only 45 Km long and 25 Km wide, so you really can see a lot of the island in one day.

Visit Ibiza Town's romantic Medieval castle Dalt Vila, a must see for all visitors to Ibiza or the sleepy, white-washed villages of Ibiza. Enjoy tapas in local bars and restaurants and later cool off in some deserted coves.

The breathtaking sea views as you descend steeply to the entrance of a multi-level smugglers' ancient route of Can Marça Caves. Once inside, marvel at the stalagmites and stalactites formations, figures, temples and rocket stations.

One of Ibiza's most famous landmarks located on the southern most tip of the island is the Las Salinas Salt Flats. The salt fields have been in use for over 2000 years and is one of the most beautiful spots for sunset photos.

A Mountain Bike tour is one of the freshest and best ways to see the beauty of Ibiza and it's a great all year sport too! Check organized tours and routes for self-ride around the island.

At the Hippy Markets, choose from the enormous variety of products such as the most exotic batik wraps and clothing to tailor-made leather moccasins and a tantalizing variety of East Asian silver jewelery and trinkets.

Join excursions to Experience the beauty of Ibiza if you prefer not to hire a car in order to get out and about and explore the island, there are some organized trips that will give you a chance to enjoy some of the many aspects of Ibiza - on land & sea.

Watersports, Diving & Boat Charter in Ibiza

Water temperatures range from 18º C in May to 26º in August making the island ideal for all sorts of water-sports, including water-skiing, jet skiing, sailing, windsurfing, para-sailing, banana boat or even a relaxing pedalo.

Most of the larger beaches have kiosks where you can rent pedalos and have a go on a banana boat. There are several sailing schools around the island (Playa d'en Bossa, Las Salinas, San Antonio, Cala Martina, Cala Pada) offering Catamaran hire and occasional windsurf hire (you will probably need a license). There are also several beaches offering water-skiing and jet skiing (San Antonio Bay, Cala Bassa, Playa d'en Bossa, Santa Eulalia) and para-sailing. More information can be found in our beaches section.

Selected boat charter companies offering excursions and rentals of yachts and motor boats both daily and weekly. It's the perfect way to join the 'wet set' and discover the beautiful coastline of Ibiza and Formentera.

Warm, clear waters and over 200 kilometers of spectacular coastline make Ibiza a popular resort for both amateur and professional divers, almost the whole year round. There are many excellent and qualified diving schools located around the island offering courses from Beginner up to Advanced. Dive locations include cave dives and wreck dives. The water is particularly clear around Ibiza. In July 2007, the cargo ferry Don Pedro sunk very near to Ibiza port. Since June 20th 2008, this wreck is now open for recreational diving !

Ibiza Clubbing - The Undisputed Party Capital of the World

After a the day of chilling at one of the amazing beach bars watching the sunset, the legendary Ibiza clubs are calling you for a big night with your favorite DJ's.

There are seven major clubs on the island of Ibiza:

* Amnesia - located in the middle of the island, near San Rafael
* DC10 - located near the airport on the road to Las Salinas.
* Eden - located on the waterfront in San Antonio.
* Es Paradis - located on the waterfront in San Antonio
* Pacha - located very near the Ibiza Marina
* Privilege - located in the middle of the island, near San Rafael
* Space - located in Playa d'en Bossa, near the beach.

In addition there are many smaller venues such as Bora Bora, Underground, Boho, Blu, Grial, Martina, KM5 and more.

The Monday to Sunday parties and entertainment at each club is programmed by the Clubs and outside Promoters from many different countries around the world and tailored to suit the unique environment that is Ibiza's party scene. This means that the music played in each club varies from night to night and promoter to promoter. Just to confuse the issue all the major clubs have a back room or alternative area which usually plays different music to the DJ's in the main room. In the case of Pacha and Space, there are numerous smaller back rooms playing a big cross selection of musical genres.

Another vital part of the Ibizan club scene are the many music bars in the resorts and around the island. Here clubbers go to warm up for their coming nights out or to listen to music and dance in a more relaxed, less intense atmosphere. Most of these bars have free entry and cheaper drinks, but still have great local and guest DJ's. Special mention must go to the sunset cafés along the Caló des Moro in San Antonio, known as the sunset strip. There you can watch the sun go down in a romantic setting and later dance to your favorite DJ.
