Ibiza sightseeing

Explore the island at your own pace and discover the hippy markets, sleepy villages, the salt flats of Las Salinas, drip stone caves and much more.

For a small island, Ibiza has plenty to show you on your holiday: beautiful beaches, enchanting countryside, history and culture.

Inland you will find beautiful whitewashed villages, each with its own ancient church. Wander through narrow lanes, browse the local shops and then enjoy a lazy lunch on a shady terrace.

You can either hire a car or scooter and explore the island at your own pace - or choose a guided excursion where island experts show you their favourite places on Ibiza.

Hippy markets

A visit to one of the famous hippy markets is a must. At the markets, you have an enormous variety to choose from: the most exotic batik wraps and clothing to tailor-made leather moccasins and a tantalising variety of East Asian silver jewellery and trinkets. If you look around you can still find some of the original hippies, although most of them have grey hair by now.

Las Salinas salt flats

One of Ibiza's most famous landmarks. On the southernmost tip of the island, the salt flats have been in use for over 2,000 years. As the water evaporates during the hot summer months, a sparkling layer of pure salt is left on the bottom of the lakes. One of the most beautiful spots for sunset photos. At the end of the salt fields, you'll find the beautiful beach of Las Salinas.

Ibiza Town

Ibiza Town's romantic medieval castle, Dalt Vila, is a must-see for all visitors to Ibiza. Learn about Ibiza's storied past with Ibiza City Tours. Later at night, enjoy a cocktail in the buzzing port area and see the best of Ibiza by night.

Es Vedrà

Lying two kilometres off the island’s southwest coast near Cala d’Hort, Es Vedrà and its smaller sister, Es Vedranell, form one of Ibiza’s most emblematic landmarks.

The pair of islets are part of a protected nature and marine reserve and home to several species of local fauna including rare lizards and a colony of the endangered bird of prey known as Eleonora's falcon.

Many local legends and myths surround Es Vedrà, some stretching back in time as far as the Ancient Greeks.

The best time of day to admire this impressive sight from afar is sunset. Remember to exercise caution when walking along the clifftops as there are sheer drops.

Can Marça caves

Can Marça caves - near the small resort of Puerto de San Miguel. There are breathtaking sea views as you descend steeply to the entrance. Enter this multi-level, yellow-gold world, plotting the smugglers' ancient route with a multilingual guide.

Over aeons, stalagmites and stalactites have formed into figures, temples and rocket stations. At the heart of the caves, there is a spectacular music and light show with a 10-metre cascade of diamond-bright water.
