Holidays to Figueretas deliver all the family favourites – sandy beaches, colourful markets, watersports and even a clown school.

Perfect mix

Figueretas, on the south coast of Ibiza, in Spain, has got something for kids and adults alike. There's a popular family-friendly beach with stacks of entertainment, while lively Ibiza Town's just a 15-minute stroll away. For a daytrip, pack a picnic and hop on a boat to Formentera, one of the other Balearic Islands.

Local shopping

Figueretas' prom looks over the sea, but your eyes might be drawn to the craft stalls that set up here in the late afternoon. Handmade jewellery makes a great souvenir, while kids might opt for a cheeky caricature. On Wednesdays, follow the crowd on the ferry to Es Cana, where the famous hippie market is packed with leather goods, jewellery and tie-dyed clothes.

Fun-packed beach

From kayak and pedalo rentals to glass-bottom boat tours and martial-arts demos, the beach at Figueretas is where the action's found. There's always space to flop down on the sands – the half-moon beach is kitted out with loungers, showers and lifeguard stations. At dusk, find a spot at a beachfront terrace bar while the DJs spin their tunes.
