Located just off the east coast of mainland Spain, Ibiza is often dubbed the exclusive party hub of Europe. And whilst it’s true that many famous DJs and high-end nightclubs exist here, Ibiza is far from just a young adults’ party holiday. It has become a place of luxury, quiet travel, and family adventures, too.
As displayed on Eivillas.com, there are many, many villas dotted around Ibiza that are targeted toward families. 3, 4, and even 7+ bedroom villas can be found, with space for activities and a private pool, a private kitchen to feed a big group, off-road parking, and security.
But it’s more than just spending time in the villa that is worth visiting Ibiza; there’s lots to do and see. Here are a few things a family can do to enjoy a day out.
Cala Bassa beach
Being a Spanish island, Ibiza is packed full of different beaches. But, Cala Bassa is particularly stunning and offers everything that a family needs.
Beyond its geological good looks, Cala Bassa has very shallow waters, meaning even young children can have a lot of freedom to enjoy the waters. The rock pools can make it feel like a swimming pool at times, with a private feel to it.
As for activities, it’s possible to snorkel here and rent a pedalo and banana boat inflatable.
Cala Bassa Beach Club is also nearby. Here, you can find great food, beer, and a sunbed. In fact, there are five different restaurants there, meaning you can order your beer and lunch directly to the sunbed.
Aguamar Water Park
Located in Playa d’en Bossa, Aguamar Water Park is perhaps the largest theme park in Ibiza. It does a good job of offering enthralling water rides for the children and relaxing sunbeds for the adults. The Black Hole, Spiral, and Kamikaze are the main rides to consider, but there’s also a shallow pool too.
There are a few great restaurants inside the water park, but it’s also possible to bring your own sandwiches and drinks.
Cova de Can Marca
There’s no denying that both children and adults are compelled by caves. Whilst the Spanish mainland is known for some incredible caves, Ibiza has one of its own too, the Cova de Can Marca! This is a vast cave system with unique formations. It used to be used by pilgrims to smuggle goods in, but now it’s a spot for tourists to enjoy the echoes and eerie setting.
Its most known feature is the Hall of Lakes, which is an underground lake. Something that can catch you off guard but is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for some.
There is a safari in Ibiza in which you’re driven around the coastline and terrain for either 4.5 or 6 hours. This is a great way for the children to learn about Ibiza’s wildlife, as it has many endemic species and provides some of the best photo opportunities on the island.
You can be picked up from your hotel and be provided with lunch too, making the whole day out really easy to organize, giving you more time to enjoy the sights.
