Family things to do

You can't simply laze around on the beach every day of your holiday - there's so many interesting things just waiting to be discovered - by car, boat, bus or train!

Ibiza is truly a special destination for family holidays, and from aquariums to stalactite caves, you will find no shortage of fun and exciting things for children of all ages to do during your holiday.

As well as a plethora of beaches where children can play and swim safely - play parks and play areas can be found in most resorts, which boast trampolines, climbing frames, bouncy castles, carousels, slides and plenty of space for the little ones to run around in a safe, enclosed environment.

Watersports, including diving, stand up paddle, sailing, parasailing, banana-boat and pedalos can be found on most of Ibiza's beaches, and the island's water parks are always a firm favourite with their variety of different slides and pools to play in.

Ten-pin bowling, go-karting, crazy golf, and gut-wrenching white-knuckles rides are always popular and, of course, boat trips are a great way to explore the island whilst giving older children the chance to dive, spot dolphins or maybe even do a little fly-fishing in the open sea. You will find details of routes and timetables on each of the landing stages.

Or why not try an outing to one of the many hippy and other markets of varying sizes around Ibiza? The bright clothes, jewellery, ornaments, music and street performers are always a hit with children of all ages.

If you are wanting to make a full day of it, a day trip to Formentera is a great option for all the family. Take one of the regular ferries which depart from most resorts during the summer months to the island, then hire a bike or one of the famous modern & environmentally-friendly electric vehicles to explore the picturesque and unspoiled countryside and beaches.

Wherever you are going, remember to take some small change with you for a snack or cooling drink, and please remember as well never to leave bags and belongings unattended.
