Try out one of Ibiza’s fun-filled waterparks. Aguamar
, located at Playa d’en Bossa provides a playground of multicolored slides for all levels and even some foam slides for the younger children. You could even pack a picnic and make a half-day out of it as there is plenty of space on the lawn and convenient locker rooms. There is another good water park on the west coast, near San Antonio, at Port d’es Torrent called Sirenis Aquagames
. There are good slides but not much space for the parents to relax. A fun hour or two nonetheless.

The aquarium Cap Blanc just north of San Antonio is located in a 370m2 natural cave. As the children walk along the pathway they will be greeted by an array of Mediterranean species, colorful fish, marine turtles , octopus etc. Things to keep in mind; it is best for young kids since the space is small . It’s a charming place but very local and would win no global aquarium award. So, best that you plan a short visit, but there is a little restaurant attached which is a pretty spot from where you should try a plate of their delicious sardines, cooked in the evening. Check opening times before visiting. Closed in winter.
CAN MARCA CAVES
Nearing the Port of San Miguel are caves that were once used as a place to store contraband. The walls are still intact and now lit up using semi spooky neon colors to accentuate the backdrop. Little kids will love the 10m cascade of water best displayed during the guided Light and Music show. As you climb to the very top of the stairs along the cliff walls you will surely marvel in the amazing sea views. Keep going till you reach the top and refresh at the café.
ACROBOSC CALA PADA
Situated in a natural park of pine trees between Es Canar and Santa Eularia this Acrobosc park provides climbing fun for the whole family. Providing varying levels and climbing circuits this is an outdoor adventure in which you can all participate. There is a basic bar for snacks and free parking across the street. Real dusty fun, best enjoyed in very casual wear.
