Ibiza might be known for being a party playground, but there’s more to this Balearic Island than big-name clubs and A-list DJs. Away from the nightlife focussed resorts of San Antonio and Playa D’en Bossa, it sings to a different tune.
Northern towns like Puerto San Miguel and Portinatx showcase sandy coves and hills covered with wild flowers. Further south, Cala Llonga offers a similarly relaxed atmosphere and boasts one of the biggest beaches on the island. Santa Eulalia, meanwhile, provides a happy medium between lively and laid-back. The boutiques and bars here have a cosmopolitan edge, and the town’s sweep of pale sand is a favourite with families.
Ibiza’s capital, Ibiza Town, has an old quarter that’s earned itself a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. It’s cocooned by medieval stone walls and overlooked by a fortress. The newer part of the town, down by the waterfront, is an amalgamation of high-end restaurants, well-dressed bars and market stalls.
Outside the hottest months of July and August, all the Balearics are good for activity holidays, whether easy or more challenging, with plenty to see if you are interested in plants or birds. Sunshine is not guaranteed, however, and you may well hit a rainy patch in late autumn.
We fly to the only airport in Ibiza, which is about 6km from the capital, Ibiza Town.
