Ibiza holidays might have a reputation of solely being for party animals looking for wild nightlife, but this Balearic island has so much more for every type of traveller, so be sure to explore the charms and wonders it has to offer.
Ibiza Old Town (Dalt Vila) is enclosed within ancient walls. The ramparts offer spectacular views out across the Balearic Sea, while a climb up to the 14th-century Cathedral of the Lady of Our Snows is also a wonderful vantage point. The cobbled, winding streets make for romantic walks for couples and there are also plenty of restaurants, galleries, museums and shops to nose around as well.
One such place is the Ibiza Museum of Contemporary Art, while the Museu Puget is a smaller but no less lovely option for art enthusiasts.
Just outside of the Old Town is UNESCO World Heritage site Puig des Molins Necropolis. Around 3,000 tombs sit on the site and visitors can follow a set route through the burial chambers. There’s even the opportunity to go into one if you’re feeling really adventurous! Otherwise, you can just pop into the fascinating archaeological museum.
If the weather in Ibiza gets a bit too hot, the C’an Marça Caves on the island’s north coast provide not only a welcome escape but a wonderful activity too. Tours of the caves are available, where you are treated to a light show around a waterfall as part of the experience.
Aquarium Cap Blanc, located in an underground cavern, makes for a cool day out during family holidays in Ibiza and there are excellent family-friendly beaches nearby too, including Cala Saladeta, Cala Bassa and Platges de Comte, which all boast golden sands and calm waters ideal for swimming.
Quieter Ibiza beach holidays can be enjoyed at Cala Salada and Cala Nova, while for a more lively beach experience, head to Playa d’En Bossa.
