Do you need to bath in the sun ? Ibiza is an amazing place to relax. What can you do in Ibiza? The highest and oldest part of Ibiza Town is guarded by strong renaissance fortifications built by Charles V in the 16th century. The walls were constructed to fend off the threat of attacks by Berber pirates as well as invasion by sovereign forces like the French. It’s well worth taking a little tour of the fortifications to check out the seven bastions, each with a slightly different story to tell. The Santa Lucia bastion for instance houses an 18th-century powder magazine and commands fabulous vistas over the old fishing district and the harbour.
The resort of Cala Llonga boasts a wide and sandy white beach, views over a beautiful bay and even hills covered in pine trees to frame the scenery. This is perhaps the most family-oriented place to visit in Ibiza, which means that you’ll find plenty of families with young children in the area. The main beach even offers a playground and a miniature amusement park to keep kids having fun throughout the vacation. Cala Llonga is also situated just 10 minutes from Ibiza Town, which means you can easily head away from the beach and explore the historic attractions any time.
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.
Ibiza is known for having a super chill, bohemian style. It also has a few crafty markets that occur on a weekly basis, known as the hippy markets. The one in Es Canar usually happens every Wednesday, while the one in San Carlos happens on Saturday’s. You’ll find countless stalls of handcrafted jewellery, clothes and souvenirs. It’s a colourful and lively atmosphere filled with live music and street food. So go on, shop for something other than a shirt that says “I’d rather be in Ibiza”. Maybe buy something for your fam that proves you weren’t partying 100% of the time (just 97%).
