Ibiza Holidays

Bohemian Balearic style in luxe hotels on iconic beaches; Ibiza holidays are a sweet escape of crystal-clear waters and sunset views.

Fuchsia-flushed sunsets dip into the Mediterranean Sea and on white-sand beaches there’s Champagne cocktails, ambient music and tapas at moonlight. There might be huge hedonistic clubs on holidays to Ibiza but those in the know follow the sandy footprints of free-spirited wanderers to hippy markets and glistening terraces, and on-board luxury yachts anchoring at seafront restaurants as DJs play late into the night.

You’ll find Pilates in chic studios, yoga on the beach, paddle boarding out at sea and raw juices in minimalist bars. Ibiza holidays are giddy island escapes; turquoise parasols lined up in bleached wood bars, ceviche and sushi at a legendary Nobu restaurant and travel treasures such as silk dresses and silver jewellery picked up in stylish boutiques perched high on a perfectly craggy hill.

Find the greatest places for a fresh line-caught dinner, the most glorious wild sands to go to in the north and the best beach clubs where you can linger on extra-large daybeds over a rosé-filled lunch. Chilled-out Ibiza isn’t a myth – warm village vibes run through its most beautiful towns, excited travellers set sail to the dreamy island of Formentera and nights are spent listening to the sound of crashing waves as boats bob up and down next to barefoot bars overlooking the Med.

Discover Ibiza by Jeep

Get off the beaten track with a 4x4 adventure that takes you to some of Ibiza’s less-visited spots in the west, north and east. Heading along backcountry roads and tracks, you’ll hear stories about the island’s history, flora and fauna and discover hidden valleys, pine forests and breathtaking stretches of coastline. It’s not all about nature, however, as your route will also take you through quiet hamlets of whitewashed sugar-cube houses flanked by palm trees that are just waiting to be photographed. There’ll be time for a swim at Benirrás beach, which is known for its crystal-clear waters and Sunday evening ‘drumming down the sunset’ ritual, and a visit to a hippy market where you can shop for artisanal products.

• Duration: full day
• Time: 10.30am to 4.30pm
• Departs Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sundays

Sunset Catamaran Cruise to Formentera

For an evening out with a difference, hop aboard a sleek catamaran and set sail for Formentera. Your ultimate destination is dreamy Espalmador, an uninhabited speck of land just off the north tip of the island, which is blessed with dazzling white beaches washed by limpid blue waters. It’s a perfect place for a late afternoon swim when there’s hardly anyone else around. From here, the boat will cruise to the bay of Ses Illetes, set within Formentera Natural Park and a superb location for watching the sun go down in a blaze of colour. With chillout music playing softly in the background and a fabulous dinner of freshly made barbecue favourites – just the thing for sea-air-sharpened appetites – it’ll feel more like a wonderfully exclusive club than a boat trip.

• Duration: evening
• Time: 4.30pm to 10pm
• Departs Monday to Saturday/ • Operates year-round/ • Group experience/

Good to know The catamaran holds up to 140 passengers.

Ibiza Highlights In A Day

Described by a 20th-century artist as the White Island, a name that’s stuck, Ibiza may be small but it’s not short on attractions. Spend an enchanting day discovering a range of sites of cultural interest, beautiful beaches, pretty villages and stunning scenery on a guided bus tour. On Wednesdays, there’ll also be a stop at the Es Cana/Punta Arabí hippy market, which has hundreds of stalls for you to browse, set under pine trees and along the winding streets of the small resort. Saturday tours include a visit to the equally famous hippy market of Las Dalias, which has been part of Ibiza’s bohemian scene since 1954.

Formentera Highlights In A Day

Spend a fascinating day soaking up the sleepy charm of Formentera, the smallest of the Balearic Islands, where it almost feels as if time has stood still. A speedy ferry will whisk you across from Ibiza in 25 minutes, leaving you plenty of time for an in-depth guided tour of some of the island’s must-see spots. These include San Francisco, the charming village capital, with its white-painted houses, fortress-like church and independent shops, which is a delightful place to wander. Then there’s La Mola, perched on a towering cliff on the east coast, which Jules Verne described as ‘the lighthouse at the end of the world’ and from where there are spectacular sea views. And no trip to Formentera would be complete without a visit to one of its beautiful beaches for a swim, plus a spot of lunch in a typically laid-back eatery.

• Duration: full day
• Time: 8am to 6pm
• Departs Thursdays and Sundays/ • Operates year-round/ • Group experience

Where to go There’s the unspoilt non-commercial atmosphere at the south-west’s palm-lined Carla Cabo beach and the bohemian hangout at the north’s Benirras beach where water is crystal clear and sunsets are spectacular. Then there’s iconic Las Salinas in the south where super salty water makes it easy to stay afloat and DJs spin tunes until the sun goes down.

What to do Head to the laid-back town of Santa Eulalia for soft sandy beaches and an exclusive yacht marina; the perfect spot for families and travellers looking for a more tranquil holiday. Half an hour away in Ibiza Town you’ll find winding white-washed alleys leading to the UNESCO Dalt Vila, plush yachts moored at the Marina and Ibiza’s most famous nightclubs, restaurants, beaches and shops. Just up from the marina is Talamanca, a quieter spot where soft white sands and plenty of beachfront eateries can be found. For something a little wilder and remote, explore the north of Ibiza walking the cliff-top trail from Portinatx to the lighthouse.

Getting around Car hire provides the most freedom if you want to explore all of Ibiza, but taxis (expect queues and waits in the summer), buses and ferries are all convenient ways to get around the island too. The best way to experience Ibiza Town is to walk around and there are plenty of hiking opportunities in the north. More secluded spots tend to have dirt roads on the way and roads are not always clearly signposted so be careful when driving.

Food & drink Steeped in traditional fishing and with a fertile land, you’re guaranteed to eat well on Ibiza. Find some of the best eateries on the island along the cobbled streets of Dalt Vila, sip cocktails at sunset in dreamy bars overlooking the sea and recharge after a night out at one of the many raw, organic juice bars. Locals eat late, meaning some of the best tables in the house can be found around 8pm before the Spanish arrive a couple of hours later. Imagine seafood paella, fresh fish infused with saffron, Catalan fish stew, a mix of chicken, lamb and Ibiza sausages and lots of tapas offerings between meals.
