Ibiza may have a reputation for partying, but in the island’s bohemian north, you really get a sense of its peaceful, spiritual past. Puerto San Miguel holidays involve days spent lazing on the beach, enjoying the sun, sand and Mediterranean Sea, as well as drinking and dining at ‘chiringuitos’ (bars). The landscape is stunning and you can enjoy the sight and scent of pine-carpeted cliffs tumbling down to form a series of sheltered coves, whose sandy beaches meet with sparkling sea.
Down on the beach, pedalos, boats and other water-sports devices are available, while up in the hills, a number of restaurants cater to a variety of tastes and budgets. In the evenings on holidays to Puerto San Miguel, this tranquil resort’s few bars lazily entertain – although, thanks to Ibiza’s relatively small size, you’re never too far from a big night out at one of its internationally renowned clubs.
Make a splash
For those keen to spend a decent amount of time in the bright blue Mediterranean, water skiing, windsurfing and a diving school are all available for your pleasure.
Visit a cave
The beautifully eerie Can Marca caves are a short hike away and host a multicoloured light show and a history lesson about the smugglers of Ibiza’s past.
Catch a sunset
Take a trip to nearby Benirras Beach to watch or join in the Sunday sunset worshipping – drummers beat out the sun’s last rays in a decades-old tradition.
