Day 1 in Ibiza
Welcome to Ibiza! Arrive at the airport in Ibiza and proceed to your hotel. Should you desire, we offer private transfers where a representative will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel. (Click on Hotel Transportation in the Booking Process.). After check in you're off to enjoy the sun, sand and surf!
Head to the coast and set yourself up at one of the many beaches on the island - Ibiza has 80 (yes, 80!) to choose from (swimsuit optional). Spend the afternoon basking in the sun and swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean before going out for a late dinner in Old Ibiza.
Afterwards, it's time to have some fun - island style! Ibiza didn't earn the title of 'world's party capital' for nothing. With seven major clubs hosting world famous DJs, there is plenty to do in terms of nightlife and entertainment. So go on and party til the sun comes up!
Day 2 in Ibiza
Whether you partied all night or not, today is all about relaxation. Leave the beaches behind and explore the history of Ibiza. Old Ibiza or D' Alt Vila (meaning High Town) is an UNESCO World Heritage site and the perfect place to start off the day with a coffee before wandering through the quaint cobblestone streets, browsing the shops of Sa Penya and getting some fresh air. Check out the castle, also known as Eivissa Castle and cemetery, Necropolis del Puig des Molins, containing more than 3,000 tombs from the Phoenician-Punic times. As part of the Museu Arqueologic d'Eivissa i Formentera, it educates visitors about the early history of the island (from 1554) to present day. Admission is free.
Then if you're up for it, rent a bike or moped and head out and about, exploring everything this tropical paradise has to offer in terms of natural beauty. Stop at Ses Salinas (also an UNESCO World Heritage Site) to take in this fragile Mediterranean ecosystem and find the perfect cove for a picnic. Or visit the charming village of San Gertrudis, in the geographical heart of the island. Steeped in tradition, but with a modern makeover, its main square (Plaça de l'Església) houses the whitewashed church as well as many hip new café bars and restaurants, in addition to the traditional Ibicenco establishments (try the bocadillo completo - a roll of tomato, cheese and Serrano ham). Any time of day is perfect for a visit to this village with its Bohemian style of living and eclectic mix of retail shops.
This evening, watch the sun set from the infamous Café del Mar in San Antonio. Stay for the party or head back to Old Town Ibiza and turn in early. Take a romantic stroll under the night sky before bed.
Day 3 in Ibiza
Now that you're well rested, it's time to get active and enjoy the beach beyond the sand. Ibiza is a water lover's paradise so go snorkeling or swimming in the azure blue beauty of the Mediterranean Sea or try paragliding, wind surfing or water skiing.
This afternoon, take a ferry and head to Formentera. This tiny island features nearly untouched beaches and is a nice place to relax and unwind. Explore the natural terrain on foot or rent a bike. The beaches here are some of the best on the Mediterranean so don't be surprised to see people sans clothing. The island is known for its nude beaches. Alternately, head north to Santa Eulària des Riu. It's the second most visited location on the island after Eivissa. This area offers the only golf course on the island as well as beaches, shopping and the historical Puig de Missa, a hilltop church built in 1568.
This evening, take it easy in Santa Eularia. You won' find crazy all night parties here, but it does offer a great selection of bars and restaurants. Heading back towards the old town, Calle San Vicente is the best spot to get a good meal before enjoying an after dinner drink in one of the numerous bars on Calle San Jaime.
Additional Days in Ibiza
Should you be able to spend additional days in Ibiza then be sure to explore the lush valley of Broll de Buscastell in the region known as Puertas del Cielo, a vast hilly area located on the west part of Ibiza, near the coast. See the remains of Penya Esbarrada, a 12th century Muslim village, then admire the views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Margalides Islands before stopping at remote Benirras Beach, located between the villages of Joan and San Miguel.
Located in the bay of Puerto San Miguel is a natural formation that doesn't involve sand or surf. More than 100,000 years old, the Cueva De Can Marca was first discovered by smugglers who would hide their loot in its dark recesses. Inside the cave, there are stalactites dripping from the ceiling, fossils, and a 30 foot waterfall that reaches far into the depths of the earth. Don't miss the stunning view from the exit of the cave!
Located on the southwest side of the island, es Vedranell and the western inlets are a cluster of protected areas featuring sandy beaches, clear warm waters, wildlife and the infamous and iconic Es Vedra mountain that has become synonymous with images of Ibiza. Spend time exploring the ten islets in the area or spread a towel on the beach and watch for dolphins frolicking off the coast. This area also features the remnants of a Punic-Roman settlement and an old lighthouse, La Torres des Savinar.
