What Not To Miss
A Day Charter
A day charter in Ibiza’s beautiful turquoise waters is a day to remember. You can get away from the crowd and see the island from a truly inspiring new perspective in total luxury. The classic day charter takes you from Ibiza Town to the beautiful sand fringed sister island of Formentera.
It’s an amazing experience and perhaps the finest day charter in the Mediterranean, but don’t overlook leaving from San Antonio marina and exploring the west coast with its dramatic plunging cliffs and hidden bays that you can only experience by boat. Here privacy is king and a luxury picnic on board can complete a wonderful day. Check out our boat fleet.
D’Alt Vila, translating as the ‘high town’ is the striking hill top city of Ibiza. The ancient charming streets, the vibrant hidden restaurants, the stunning vistas from various view points up on the giant city walls; we definitely recommend a visit to see experience a different side of Ibiza.
The little ‘village’ surrounded by the hugely impressive defensive stonewall was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for very good reason. It is the best- preserved coastal fortress in the Mediterranean. The Italian architect Calvi designed Dalt Vila to defend the town against brutal pirates attacking the town. Check D’Alt Vila’s Restuarants.
Salinas National Park
Salinas National Park is a land of untamed beauty. Salt flats stretch out before you, with distant mountains rising up against the horizon, flamingos wading through the salty waters and over 400 different species of birds soaring through the sky. The air is thick with the salty aroma of the sea and the sound of the wind blowing through the reeds.
This is also where two of Ibiza’s most famous and beautiful beaches meet on the island’s South east tip; Platja de Ses Salinas facing south and Platja d’es Cavallet facing west. This is wonderful setting for swimming and relaxing and of course dining. Salinas National Park is the perfect choice for a family day out in Ibiza.
San Juan’s Market
San Juan’s Market is a vibrant hub of local culture, food, and crafts. Located in the charming village of San Juan, this weekly market is a favourite among locals and visitors alike. From fresh fruits and veggies to handmade jewellery and pottery, the market offers a wide range of products made by local artisans.
Where To Eat
Could laid back luxury be better defined? Beautifully decorated, a very pretty setting, excellent and creative food and attentive service – all the ingredients that are testament to eating in one of the best and most in-demand restaurants in the Mediterranean.
Es Cubells beach. Feet in the dusty sand, laid back atmosphere under the Sabina trees and lovely views across the bay. This is one of our top lunch recommendations and is a local treat. You won’t find it unless you know about it.
Taller Sa Penya
D’Alt Vila has some hidden gems that are hard to uncover. Once you climb above the famously fun gay street Calle De La Virgin the edgier and darker the tiny streets become. Persevere, be courageous, and you will find the latest hot dining experience; Taller Sa Penya by the Ibiza Food Studio. Probably not one for the little ones but incredible food that you won’t forget.
The Giri Cafe
San Juan. Set in the quaint Northern pueblo of San Juan, the Giri café looks small from the outside until you walk through to the outdoor area. Shaded by bamboo walls, with an organic garden at your feet, the Giri creates simple Mediterranean dishes with local produce.
