San Antonio Town is one of the Med's most famous resorts. It snakes around a beautiful bay that is filled with yachts. It's the party hotspot with cool bars and superclubs. Just 2km away you'll find San Antonio Bay, a more laid-back resort but there's still plenty of nightlife going on from family places to lively clubs. Both options offer stunning views of the other Balearic Islands and amazing sunsets that have to be seen to be believed.
Santa Eulalia is a seaside town and has a relaxed atmosphere in comparison to the livelier resorts on Ibiza. It's a family and couples favourite owing to the pretty beach and laid-back vibe, so if you plan for family holidays in Ibiza this is the place to look at. Santa Eulalia is great for foodies as it is Ibiza's best dining destination with a street simply known as Restaurant Street. The beachside promenade is a small wonder as you can enjoy your morning jog or cycle by the palm-tree adorned walkway.
Es Canar is a friendly little place with a great selection of bars, cafés and restaurants. While there you can visit the famous hippy market and stock up with handcrafted souvenirs of your holidays in Ibiza. There's a tiny harbour, with soft sandy beaches just next door which makes this place ideal for family holidays as the peace and quiet is spectacular in itself. If, however you want to witness the wild side of Ibiza, the bus station has a well organised bus service to most parts of the island which you could visit for a change of scenery.
Nature & Sights
Head inland in Ibiza and you'll see pine-forests that can be discovered on a 4x4 safari. Or how about seeing the caves of Can Marca which are over 1000 years old and give you fantastic views over the Puerta de Sin Miguel on the north of the island. The imposing small island of Es Vedra, situated close to Cala D’Hort is an untouched part of Ibiza’s nature and as such it’s bustling with endangered bird species. A host of many myths and legends established through the ages, this tranquil place is amongst the main natural attractions to visit during your holidays in Ibiza. Last but far from least, if you don’t mind the uphill walk and want to stretch your legs while taking in a magnificent scenery, a visit to the Ibiza castle at the old town of Eivissa is a must.
All the resorts have watersports on offer from diving to sailing. For a fun family day out head to the Aguamar waterpark. Mountain biking and rock climbing are also popular activities as well as horse-riding. All are unique ways to explore the island. For a different experience head to Playa d’en Bossa and ride on the unforgettable flyboards if you want to feel like a spaceman hovering above the water. In case that you want to enjoy a swim in the more secluded beaches and make your family holidays in Ibiza unforgettable, one of the available boat charters throughout the island is waiting to take you on an exclusive trip around the sunny coasts of Ibiza. Speaking of boat trips, hop on the ferry to nearby Formentera and enjoy its amazing beaches away from the hustle and bustle of more touristy resorts.
Ibiza nightclubs are legendary with clubs such as Space, Amnesia and Pacha among the biggest attractions in the islands hosting world-class DJs each year. The party is always on and lots of people flock on the island each year in order to experience the immensity of these events day to night. For the ones after a relaxing night out, a multitude of beach bars around the island provide perfectly mixed cocktails and amazing views- what’s not to like?
Food & Drink
You'll find Mediterranean cuisine here as well as international favourites. There are also some unusual but tasty local dishes like lobster stew and a crispy cheese-less pizza called Coca. Foodies will be well rewarded by the local cuisine, based mostly on fresh fish and local produce. Less adventurous eaters are well catered for by restaurants and hotels which offer a variety of international cuisine, whereas tapas bars provide for a cheaper but none the less tasty alternative to larger restaurants for everyone in between.
Summer temperatures reach the 30s in Ibiza but spring and autumn are also popular times to visit as they are a little cooler and less crowded. Make use of the friendly weather and cheap flights to Ibiza around these times if you want to avoid the crowds and spend some family time by the beach.
New Years Eve
The clubs in Ibiza shut down for the winter but some open for one night only for New Year's Eve to ring in the New Year in a true Ibizan party way. If you don't mind the mild weather this is a unique way to end the year and start a new year in style. As many people tend to believe, whatever you do during the first of the year will follow you throughout so seize the opportunity and take advantage of the best hotel deals while kickstarting your year in a spectacular manner!
Easter is a great time to visit Ibiza. You'll see colourful parades and pageants in the streets of Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia. The good weather along with festivities make up for an amazing time to book your holidays in Ibiza.
To start the season in May, Ibiza's clubs open one by one while the season ends with a bang in October when the big clubs like Space and Pacha have their closing parties. Named as the party central of Europe if not the universe, this is an experience reserved for those lucky enough to book their Ibiza holidays on time. Need we say more?

Reviews for Ibiza
Excellent location, it's very quiet, so not suitable for people who want to party all night. Although San antonio is relatively close. Good forfamilies and beach is excellent.
Had da best time ever in Ibiza last summer. can't wait to go back again soon x x
Went with our two daughters and they loved it. We stayed in Santa Eulalia, where there are some really nice beaches, shallow water, very good for children. Weather was great, heard the week before was not so good so we got luck.
Brilliant time wt my Gurls. Clubs are bangin, i'm going back next year.
