Keep reading as we take you through all of the booming nightlife, the killer sunsets, relaxing spas, and even a historical cathedral. Here is your guide of things to do in Ibiza.

1. Ibiza Cathedral

The city around Ibiza Cathedral is old but there is still a lot to explore there. You’ll find boutiques, colorful galleries, and even delicious bakeries. When you’re done taking in the local amenities, it’s time to head into the cathedral itself. 

It’s located at the top of the city and gives off a beautiful view of the water if you want to sit and look for a bit. Inside, you’ll be able to check out silver and gold monstrance that goes back as far as 1399. 

There are also gothic paintings that were created back during the 14th and 15th centuries if you didn’t get your fill of artwork in the galleries around the city. 

2. Playa d’en Bossa

Playa d’en Bossa is the longest beach in Ibiza. During the day you’ll be able to leave the comforts of your resort and chill on the beach listening to soft tunes. If you’re feeling adventurous there are places where you can go paddleboarding and jet ski.

When you start getting hungry, you’ll have your pick from the many restaurants around the area. After the sun sets, the nightlife goes into full swing. Two of the city’s largest clubs are found right next to the resort. 

3. Watch the Sunset

This sounds like something you can do anywhere but there is something special about watching it in Ibiza. The best place to watch the sun go down is Cafe del Mar but it gets a little bit crowded. 

Your best bet if you don’t like large amounts of people, would be to head to Hostel La Torre instead. You can enjoy some cool drinks on the terrace, grab dinner, and watch the sunset from there. 

4. Head Out on the Water

Let’s get into the thing that everyone loves doing when they go on vacation. Going out on the water. One of the basic things that you can do is head out on a boat and sip champagne while you take in the sights. 

Speaking of a boat, it’s the only way you can get to the Island of Es Vedrà. It’s completely uninhabited minus the tourists and it’s also a protected national park so you’ll want to bring a camera. 

You can take a jet ski tour around the island and go on a snorkeling excursion. This isn’t the only island that allows you to take part in water sports, however. There are many diving schools around Ibiza.  

5. San Antonio 

San Antonio is Ibiza’s second-largest town. It’s a good mixture of calming beaches and booming nightlife. During the day, there are many places in the area where you can stop for beer and coffee. While you’re on your coffee run you can check out the famous Columbus egg monument. 

When the sun goes down you can head to the Cafe del Mar to watch the sunset but again, it’s going to be crowded. Once it gets dark there will be a bus that takes you to one of the legendary nightclubs in the area if you want. 

6. Talamanca

You can relax from the booming nightlife by heading to Talamanca. It’s one of the largest beaches around and it’s also one of the most calming. It’s located between two headlands which means the waters don’t get too out of hand.

Your kids are perfectly safe to waste the day there. When your family starts to get growling bellies, there are many tasty food options around the beach.  

7. Santa Eulalia 

Santa Eulalia is home to a popular family resort. At the front of the resort, you’ll be met with beautiful sandy beaches. At the back, there are plenty of shops and eateries to keep you busy. 

Right next to the resort you’ll find the only golf course in all of Ibiza. So, if you want a chance to hit the green, here is your opportunity. There is also a cute church that you can explore located at the top of the Puig de Missa hill. 

8. Spa 

If you’re able to find a rental villa or apartment, chances are there is a spa located inside. Ibiza is about as well known for its spas as it is its nightclubs. There are around 15 of them located around the island. 

Your choice of treatments can vary depending on where to go. For example, the Atzaró Spa has a gym, yoga classes, and pools on top of massages, facial peels, and mani-pedis.
