Irresistible Ibiza holidays in 2017 / 2018

Ibiza, one of Spain’s beautiful Balearic Islands, is the famous Mediterranean clubbing hotspot. With cheap flights, fantastic deals on the popular resorts and a cool alternative to the ever popular Majorca, Ibiza might be the perfect pick for your 2018 holiday.

Sant Antonio is the biggest clubbing resort, known for its sunset cafés and outposts of Europe’s most popular clubs. The Playa d’en Bossa beach, near Ibiza Town, is the longest sandy beach and is one of the top resorts for clubbing on ibiza. Ibiza Town is also popular for a party. We've got some cheap deals on these destinations below.

For those looking for something a little different from their Ibiza holiday, Ibiza Town is a gorgeous tumble of whitewashed buildings crowned by the Dalt Vila (old town), which overlooks a vast harbour. Plus, the island’s breathtaking coastline is pocked with idyllic coves and stretches of golden sand, not just bustling resorts, making Ibiza a burgeoning family holidays destination.

If you’re looking for somewhere slightly quieter, consider Santa Eulalia on the east coast of Ibiza, the resort of Portinatx on the northern tip of Ibiza or Es Cana, which isn't far from Santa Eulalia. You can take your pick from scores of inviting quiet hotels and resorts scattered around the island. Inland, you’ll find drowsy, authentic villages, some offering hotel yoga retreats, and pine-clad hills to explore.

Top Attractions

Top Attractions

Ibiza Town, along with Sant Antonio on the other side of the island, are the epicentres for Ibiza’s world-famous nightlife, with spectacular parties held throughout the summer season. Sant Antonio’s ‘sunset strip’, lined with stylish bars and cafés, is where everyone in Ibiza gathers to watch the spectacular sunsets.

For waterpark fun combined with hedonistic clubbing, head to Playa d'en Bossa and the Aguamar waterpark. For a taste of daytime culture, Ibiza's charming capital, Ibiza Town, is the main cultural attraction of the island, with an alluring old quarter (Dalt Vila) and a clutch of museums to explore whilst you're nursing a hangover. 

If clubbing is not for you, Ibiza also has a stunning natural beauty. The craggy bays and azure sea of the Ibiza coastline give way to forested hills, vineyards and olive groves inland. Many farms and country homes have been converted into rural hotels and yoga retreats. You can visit Ibiza's wineries, go hiking, or visit the hauntingly beautiful salt flats, Les Salines, now a protected nature reserve.

Some of the top picks from the quiet resorts include Cala Llonga, Cala Tarida or even Ibiza's little sister island, Formentera. Other reasons for booking holidays to Ibiza include deals on flights, fantastic all inclusive hotels, and a shift from its hedonistic image to one of luxury and relaxation.

Wine and Dine

Wine and Dine

Ibiza, as you’d expect from a Balearic island that draws visitors from around the world, offers a wide choice of international cuisines. It also has some spectacularly glamorous places to eat, with elaborate dinner entertainment and celebrity chefs. From the gastronomic splendour of Santa Eulalia to the quick eats in San Antonio, from family meals in Cala Llonga on the beach to fantastic all inclusive hotels in Playa d'en Bossa, there's lots of food to love on an Ibiza holiday.

You’ll find plenty of places to tuck into proper Balearic grub on Ibiza. Spanish tapas, including patatas bravas (fried potatoes with a spicy sauce), tortilla (omelette), gambas (prawns) and pulpo (octopus). Local specialities include seafood, particularly dorada (gilt-head bream), merluza (hake) and all kinds of shellfish. Try the fideù, a variation of paella made with tiny noodles instead of rice. Traditional country restaurants will serve meat, fish and vegetables a la brasa (barbecued on a hot brazier): pork, lamb and rabbit are all common. Cured sausages are a classic on the Balearic islands, particularly sobrasada, which is spiced with paprika. Local desserts and pastries include flan (a caramel custard) and ensaïmades (a circular pastry dusted with icing sugar).

For Families

For Families

Ibiza’s fantastic beaches will keep kids of all ages happy and with the wide choice of family-friendly resorts and all inclusive hotels, Ibiza holidays make for a cheap family holiday in 2018. Younger kids will enjoy making sandcastles and jumping shallow waves, while older kids can try out a whole range of water sports, such as paddle boarding or kayaking.

Other attractions include the Aguamar water park in Playa d’en Bossa, which has slides and wave pools, the unusual aquarium, which is located in an underground cave in Sant Antonio and Acrobosc, a treetop adventure circuit in Santa Eulalia. You’ll find several go-karting tracks and bowling alleys, and the Hippy Markets in Es Cana are perennially popular. Boat rides are always a hit with the whole family: take your pic from the glass-bottomed boat tours, visits to the Es Vedra nature reserve (on an island) or even dolphin-watching tours.

For a great family holiday to Ibiza, we recommend Cala Llonga which is laid back and cheerful, Cala Tarida which is chilled out but with all the facilities you might need, and Es Cana, with an ideal balance between beaches and a buzzing family-friendly strip.

Action and Adventure

Action and Adventure

Ibiza offers a fantastic range of activities across various resorts for adrenaline-fuelled holidays. With views of the sister islands of Majorca and Formentera you can try jet skiing, parasailing and a host of other water sports. You can even take a cliff-diving course, to learn how to leap off clifftops, or have a go on a futuristic jet pack, hoverboard or flyboard in Santa Eulalia, which will have you flying out of the sea like a Marvel villain. You can also go horse-riding, hiking, and mountain-biking across the beautiful rural interior, and around the rugged coastline close to Cala Llonga. Of course, the island is fantastic for snorkelling and diving, with crystal clear waters and excellent visibility. Other popular activities include yoga and pilates, which are offered at resorts across Ibiza.

Life's a Beach

Life's a Beach

The Playa d’en Bossa, south of Ibiza Town, is a party hotspot, its all inclusive hotels jam-packed in summer and lined with stylish beach nightlife. Talamanca beach, 2km from the centre of Ibiza Town, is a gorgeous curve of golden sand.

Boho-chic celeb haunts Cala Jondal and Les Salines both have beach bars, while Cala Llenya is a great place for young kids thanks to its shallow waters. Es Cana is one of the best beaches to watch the sun rise, and Cala Conte is a classic for watching it set. Aguas Blancas is Ibiza’s best known nudist beach. If you’re prepared to hike, you can escape the crowds and find some lesser known coves, such as Cala dels Moltons in the north of the island.

Cala Llonga, not far from Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia, boasts the one of the biggest beaches on the island. For recovering clubbers and playing children, Cala Llonga is the perfect spot.

For family beaches, check out Cala Llonga, Cala Tarida or Portinatx. For something a little different, why not visit Formentera or Majorca, Ibiza's sister islands?

Nightlife

Nightlife

Ibiza is the partying sister of Majorca and the best place to dance in the Mediterranean. Ibiza's best-known nightlife hotspots are Pacha, Amnesia, Privilege (which is in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s biggest club), Ushuaïa, , Sankeys, Es Paradis, and DC-10. If live music is your thing, book a room at Ibiza Rocks, which is an apartment hotel with two stages, that hosts live gigs by top international acts as well as DJ sessions. For mega clubbing, Ibiza Town and Sant Antonio are the best resorts to pick. 

As well as the mega-clubs, Ibiza also has some amazing beach clubs and beach bars, where you can listen to mellow sounds, sip cocktails and soak up the boho vibe. Watching the sun set on the beach has been an institution in Ibiza since the hippy trippy days of the 1960s and now there are scores of bars and entire resorts that are perfectly set to enjoy the beautiful sight of the sun dipping below the horizon.

The top sresorts for nightlife include Sant Antonio, Playa d'en Bossa and Ibiza Town. For something a little more laid back, Portinatx has a range of bars and restaurants (no super-clubs though.) Just 15 minutes from Ibiza Town you'll find Talamanca beach, which is perfect if you're looking for somewhere to recover after a party.

For Couples

For Couples

Ibiza is a beautiful island, ideal for visiting with your partner as a late 2017 treat or in 2018. There's a range of romantic hotels and delicious loved-up meals to enjoy in Santa Eulalia. You can stroll hand in hand through the whitewashed lanes of Ibiza Town, watch the sun set from a romantic beach in Es Cana, sip cocktails at a chic bar in Playa d'en Bossa and enjoy a candlelit dinner under the stars.

If you’re both into clubbing, the night in Ibizia is yours, with a dazzling choice of clubs to choose from in Sant Antonio or Playa d'en Bossa. And there are scores of gorgeous spas where you can both pamper yourselves togehter. If you’re looking for something more offbeat, how about a starlit kayak ride? Or you could take a picnic to the top of Sa Talaia to enjoy fantastic panoramic views.

Or perhaps go for a stroll through the otherworldly landscapes of the Ses Salinas salt flats, now a protected nature reserve. You could also rent a tandem, or go roller-blading, or take a hike along the cliffs to find a secret cove. For peace and quiet on Ibiza, we recommend Cala Tarida, just a 15 minutes bus ride from Sant Antonio. Yep. Ibiza has a lot to offer for romantic holidays in 2017/2018.

Ibiza Town is the main cultural hub on the island. It is home to a contemporary art museum and a fascinating archaeological museum that contains finds from across the island. Ibiza is also where you’ll find the widest choice of dance, theatre and music performances. Festivals are held throughout the year, and every village will celebrate its patron saint in style. Popular festivals include: Carnival, held in February or March; Sant Josep, which takes place in March; the Festa de Maig (May Festival) held in Santa Eulalia, and the Festa de la Verge del Carmen, which commemorates the patron saint of fishermen and is celebrated in villages across the island in mid-July.
