Ibiza Holidays

The beach scene

Ibiza’s beaches are almost as famous as its clubs. At Playa den Bossa, the island’s biggest, you can carry on the previous night’s party at the bars lining the sand. At the other extreme, you’ve got pint-sized Puerto San Miguel, where seclusion is pretty much a given.

Laid-back Ibiza

In fact, the north coast towns of Puerto San Miguel and Portinatx couldn’t be further away from the party. Save for a few bars and restaurants, there’s little to disturb the pine-cloaked hills and sandy bays. Head south east and Santa Eulalia cranks things up a notch, with a chi-chi boutique and restaurant scene. As for Facebook-worthy photos, enter Ibiza Town. Get some snaps of the old quarter – its whitewashed alleys and cobbled streets wear a castle for a crown.

Clubbin’ it

Lastly, it’d be rude to mention Ibiza without paying homage to its legendary nightlife. Pack your clubbing gear if you’re heading to Playa d’en Bossa or San Antonio – they’re all about neon-lit bars and big-name clubs. Saying that, Playa d’en Bossa’s safe shoreline and waterpark make it just as popular with families as the big-fish-little-fish crowd.

Port des Torrent

Port des Torrent is set on Ibiza’s west coast at the end of San Antonio Bay. It has grown from a biscuit-tin-pretty port village in to a resort with family-friendly credentials – its gang of tavernas and activities are neither too quiet, nor too loud. Gently does it here, yet the town is only a whisper away from San Antonio’s drumbeat of cool bars and superclubs.

Santa Eulalia

As resorts go, Santa Eulalia is a bit of a classy customer on Ibiza’s south-east coast. This laid-back place deals in art galleries, high-end boutiques and a fancy marina filled with show-off yachts. It’s also nabbed a reputation as the foodie capital of the island with its famous Restaurant Street. And there’s a couple of great beaches on the menu, too.

Es Cana

The resort of Es Cana on Ibiza’s east coast sits pretty with its dinky harbour and whitewashed houses. The vibe here is laid-back and leisurely, but the town springs to life every Wednesday when the hippie market comes to town.
