The beautiful island of Ibiza is known worldwide for its vibrant music scene, late-night parties, and celeb-studded yachts, but we know that our beloved island is also a haven for families, the perfect place to spend relaxed time together.
One of the joy of being on holiday in Ibiza is to spend lazy days at the beach with the whole family. Even if the island boasts more than 53 beaches, not all of them are suitable enough for younger kids – this is why we’ve put together a list of the most family-friendly beaches featuring spacious sandy beaches, gentle slopes into the sea and crystal clear shallow waters.
But Ibiza offers also plenty of other kid-friendly activities where every member of the family will find something to enjoy. If you are driving towards San Antonio, consider planning a pit-stop at the aquarium of Cap Blanc. This aquarium might not win a prize as the most beautiful aquarium in the world, but it sits in a beautiful natural cave, which makes the visit extra magical. If you fancy an active holiday with the family then, depending on the age of your kids, you can either rent a bike and enjoy cycling along the coast, horse riding in nature or walking the many beautiful corners of the island.
There is more than beaches and outdoor activities in Ibiza, the Hippy markets are the perfect way to truly experience the vibrant and laid back vibe of the White Isle. Among colourful stalls selling everything from clothing, jewellery and trinkets, children will be delighted while you will have time to indulge yourself in some shopping. Music and good food is just the icing on the cake. The Hippy Market of Punta Arabi offers also a kids area, where the little ones can create their own crown-flowers, get a fantasy face-painting or join creative workshops.
When it comes to restaurants Ibiza has become renowned for having the best in style and flavours. Whether it’s a beachside lunch or a laid-back dining in the campo, the whole family will be spoilt for choice! If you are looking for places where kids can run free & have fun while you are enjoying a tasty meal we will suggest La Paloma in the north of the island. If you fancy dining with your feet in the sand than Tanit Beach Club is the right choice, they offer kids’ menu and provide a kids club with plenty of activities to entertain the little ones.
