Home to stunning beaches packed with fine white sands and dazzling clear blue waters, if relaxing on the beach is just your thing then head to Ibiza. The soft sands and blue seas will relax you. The liveliest beaches are to be found in Ibiza Town, with Playa de ses Figueretes and Playa d'en Bossa. Both have long, sandy swathes. Numerous bars and cafes lie within Playa d'en Bossa's with lively Bora Bora beach club a firm favourite. The shallow, gently sloping waters are ideal for families with children. Nudging the sands and rocky features are shady pine forests that are perfect for gentle walks. In the north, Portinatx offers magnificent views, rocky shorelines and fine, white sand. For something a more active, watersports are readily available at larger resorts in peak holiday season.
Explore Ibiza Town by day or night. Visit the fortified Dalt Vila in the old town with its ancient cathedral, monastery, museums, boutiques, art galleries and cafes. Then take a stroll through the winding lanes of the bustling port, soaking up the vibrant atmosphere. Wander up through the cobbled streets of the Old Town to admire, browse through the many stalls and designer shops, amazing markets, marvel the buskers before dining out in one of the many restaurants. For a moment of calm amidst the action gaze at the stunning views across the bay with its amazing mix millionaires' yachts.
Visit the weekly Wednesday hippy market at Es Cana. Here you'll have the chance to pick up a few good buys or too to take back home with you. There are an enormous variety of trinkets and good buys to choose, from the most exotic batik wraps and clothing to tailor-made leather moccasins and a tantalizing variety of east-Asian silver jewellery and trinkets.
Hop on a boat and take a trip over to Ibiza's little sister island of Formentera. Simply sit back, relax and switch off - there are no planes, no five star hotels, and no frenetic hardcore clubs - just Caribbean-like turquoise seas, white sandy beaches and charming villages.
