WHAT TO DO

Visit Dalt Vila and the castle of Ibiza

 

Originally built to defend the island, it’s now a charming labyrinth of bustling restaurants, bars and shops such as Annie’s Ibiza (a favourite amongst the fashion set, including Kate Moss when she’s in town) and La Oliva. 

 

Shopping

 

Head to Ibiza Town and start at the newly pedestrianised boulevard of Vara De Rey, shopping at haunts like Ruta Market, a colourful store selling affordable fun fashion.  Pick up a traditional straw basket from Can Vinyes, one of the oldest basket weavers on the island, now in its third generation. For vintage finds, stop at Holala Ibiza for all manner of thrift ware, or head to Vincenta Ganesha, a treasure trove of collectable vintage, including the original Paula’s Ibiza.

 

Visit Es Vedrá and its surrounding coves

Visit Es Vedra, the uninhabited islet that rises from the ocean, is part of the legend of Ibiza – some say its magnetic powers draw people back time and time again. Best place to see the sunset!

 

Watersports

From jet skis, water skis, wakeboarding and paddleboarding, spend some time on the open water soaking up the sun, and vibes.

 

Hippie & Artisan Markets

Punta Arabi at Es Canar is the oldest and biggest market on the island. It’s held every Wednesday and Friday with over 500 stalls. The legendary colourful hippy market in San Carlos, Las Dalias, is open from Saturday to Tuesday. Every Sunday, the little village of Sant Joan plays host to its cute market with organic food, crafts and clothes stalls and live music. For something more traditional, head to San Miguel Artisan Market. There are only a handful of stalls held every Thursday, but there is traditional Ibizan folk dancing and live music.

 

Discover Formentera

This magical little island is an excellent choice for a day out, there is plenty to see on this white-washed isle including striking lighthouses and gorgeous nature reserves with breathtaking views.

 

Lost Caves

Head towards the Can Marca Caves in the north of the island. On the path leading to the caves you will be greeted with stunning sea views, then inside, you can follow the same route that smugglers once took to bring their contraband onto the island. 

 

Mountain Bikes & Hiking

 

Discover the Sa Talaia, the highest mountain in Ibiza, offering panoramic views of the island from its summit. Embark on an intermediate hike from Cala Salada to San Antonio, passing spectacular beaches such as Cala Yoga and Gracioneta. Engage in an unforgettable adventure amidst the picturesque backdrop of the island’s stunning natural beauty. 

Visit some art galleries 

 

The last few years have seen a boom in Ibiza’s art scene. Near the salt village of Las Salinas beach, you’ll find Le Nave Salinave; an old salt warehouse turned gallery by NYC-based art collector Lio Malca. Wrapped in the town walls of Dalt Vila, inside an old bunker that served as an armoury, is Museu D’art Contemporani D’Eivissa (MACE), a contemporary art gallery dedicated to modern work, some international and others with an Ibizan connection.

 

Horse Around 

Explore Ibiza’s spectacular countryside on horseback. The White Isle has unique riding companies dotted around the island - from mountains to beaches - such as North Ride Ibiza and Ibiza Stud in Santa Gertrudis.
