Top travel locations to visit in Ibiza
Do you want to enjoy a blue sky on a perfect beach ? Ibiza is a fabulous destination to relax. What can you do in Ibiza? On Ibiza the sea is your playground. All of the main resort beaches have a watersports centre for jet-skis, parasailing and water-skiing and other motorised fun. Stand-up paddling and kayaking are also on the menu here. At the port in Ibiza Town you could also charter a yacht: You can sail alone if you’ve got the experience or hire a boat with its own captain to take you anywhere you want to go around Ibiza’s craggy coast. You could also take your adventure beneath the waves. There are 17 diving schools on the island, and it’s a wonderful activity here as the water clarity is so high and there are all kinds of caves and underwater drop-offs to see.
Sant Antoni de Portmany, also known as just San Antonio, is the second largest destination on Ibiza. It is recognized far and wide as one of the top nightlife destinations in Ibiza, and there is no shortage of places to dance and drink until the early hours of the morning. Start the night out on Sunset Strip, where several cafes and bars allow for spectacular views of the sunset. Then, make your way to the West End, where the majority of the nightlife spots are concentrated. If you’re not out too late in the night, you can enjoy days at the beach or strolling along the scenic promenade called the Passeig de ses Fonts.
The iconic Cafe del Mar, in San Antonio, opened in 1980, and has become synonymous with chill-out music and sun-downers. Famous the world over for its chill-out compilation albums, the cafe has a large terrace, where you can enjoy a cocktail or two, and enjoy the music as the sun sets over the sea. The food is pretty decent too. It may seem like a cliche but it’s something you should experience at least once when in Ibiza.
When surrounded by clubs and beach bars, there won’t appear to be many gourmet food options – but you will notice heaps of late night shops selling that greasy food we all know and love at 3 a.m. Kebabs and pizza are great and all, but have you tried Spanish paella? If you’re craving something less greasy, more local, take a trip to Kalissol Ibiza Santa Eulalia del Rio and treat yourself to a mouth-watering meal. It has some of the best paella on the island (take our word for it). Refuel, then continue with your alternative Ibiza activities! Read extra info at Art and culture on Ibiza.
