It’s easy to mistake Ibiza as a holiday destination just for young adults planning to party all night and sleep all day. But the most popular Balearic Island is, in fact, a fantastic place for a family holiday for those of all ages. With plenty of child-friendly beaches and enough activities to keep even the fussiest holidaymakers happy. Pack your sun cream and swimming gear for sun, sea and sand holiday with the family.
For a reasonably small island, Ibiza has a lot to boast about. If the large stretches of beaches and the array of resorts and activities along the coastline aren’t enough then there are plenty of other places to see. You never have to wander far to find one of Ibiza’s Hippy Markets, bursting with jewellery and unusual souvenirs; days can be spent trying to find the best bargain. Ibiza Town has some beautiful architecture amongst the restaurants and bars, while Portinatx acts an escape from the tourists with stunning scenery and great hiking opportunities.
The majority of beaches in Ibiza are great for the whole family. Families with younger children will appreciate the shallow water and soft sand (ideal for sandcastles!) in beaches such as Playa d’en Bossa and Cala Vadella. All the beaches located close to the main tourist resorts will house the essentials such as showers, toilets, restaurants and cafes, making them perfect for families hoping to spend relaxing days entirely by the beach. If you move away from some of the bigger resorts in Ibiza, there are some stunning stretches of white sand in secluded bays just begging to be discovered.
With so many resorts scattered across the island, young children on a family holiday in Ibiza can be kept entertained all day, every day. There are play parks all across Ibiza, offering kids the chance to clamber over climbing frames or enjoy the sea view from a trampoline. Mini-trains run along the beaches and through the countryside so children can explore the scenery from this unique form of transport, or enjoy a fun way to get home after a day out at the beach.
For teens who may have outgrown the play parks (although you’d be surprised how much the whole family can enjoy them) there are plenty of other activities on offer. The karting tracks near San Antonio Bay give vehicle enthusiasts a challenge while ten-pin bowling centres offer a more laid back afternoon. Active teenagers on a family holiday in Ibiza can take part in mountain bike tours of the island or horse riding.
