Family holidays in Ibiza

November 21, 2008

Ibiza is not only famous as a clubbers’ paradise but becomes a holiday paradise for families seeking warm weather, the beaches and the choice in entertainment for all ages, which is probably some of the best in the world.

For those traveling with young children, a good option would be to take the mini train sightseeing tours. Another option is to take a boat ride to the nearby beaches, hippy markets and towns. Santa Eulalia, Figueretas and Formentera can all be reached via boat and a good starting point would be San Antonio. Or else why not take a round the island trip by car or mini train. The whole island can be visited in one day, whilst stopping for refreshments and fun on the attractive beaches.

The Medieval castle at Dalt Vila is an interesting tour for the entire family and you can take a break at the many restaurants and bars around. The Stalactite caves above the Puerto de San Miguel are another worthwhile visit. Girls will love the hippy markets that have trinkets, jewellery and clothes for sale. If you are in Ibiza in July – August you can participate in one the fireworks shows and fiesta processions which are outstanding events.

There are play parks in most resorts but the one at Playa d’en Bossa which includes carousels and bouncy castles is a firm favourite with the little folk. San Antonio Bay and Cala Llonga too have lots of fun activities with Trampolines, climbing frames and loads of space in safe enclosed areas. When you visit Ibiza’s many beaches don’t forget to armour yourselves with lots of sunscreen and cover ups.

The beaches are full of water sports including diving, windsurfing, sailing and parasailing. The Aguamar water park with lots of slides and pools to play in is also worth visiting.

Whether it is to party or to spend some quality time with your family, Ibiza has something for everyone to enjoy.
