The best activities for families to do on Ibiza

A world of discovery awaits on the White Isle for adventurers both young and old.

With its climate, landscape and beautiful sea, many families flock to Ibiza to enjoy some Balearic bliss. It's the ideal holiday destination for families large and small, whether you have young kids or older ones.

Once on the island, there are a wide range of activities on both land and water to keep everyone entertained.

Here is our selection of nine of the best ones for you and the family to enjoy the island to the max.


MEET THE SEA

SAN ANTONIO

The Meet The Sea family boat tour makes for an exciting and educational aquatic adventure. Exploring the most beautiful spots of Ibiza's western coastline, such as the beaches of Cala Bassa and Cala Comte and the small islands of Ses Margalides, children and adults will learn more about the delicate eco system and marine life surrounding the Balearic islands. The team works with an underwater drone that can go up to 100 metres below sea level - further than divers! During the five-hour tour passengers will enjoy snorkelling safaris, a hearty lunch on board and - for the grown-ups - cocktails to toast the end of an adventurous day! 


L'ATELIER No. 74

SANTA GERTRUDIS

Located in the heart of the picturesque village of Santa Gertrudis, L'Atelier No. 74 is a chic boutique, craft workshop and café for both adults and children. The idea is that you can buy everything you see in the store - or have a go at making it yourself. From pottery to water colours or macramé, the creative pursuits on offer will keep both kids and grown-ups entertained - perfect for those rare rainy days! Afterwards, enjoy a homemade lemonade, hearty slice of quiche, sweet cake or sundowner cocktail on the pretty garden terrace.


Bam-Bu-Ku by O Beach

SAN ANTONIO


Bam-Bu-Ku is an outdoor waterpark and restaurant designed like a tropical lagoon, offering plenty of fun activities and events for families. Located next to sister venue O Beach Ibiza, you can stroll in right from the seaside promenade that runs along the bay of San Antonio. One of Bam-Bu-Ku's biggest attractions is the FLOWRIDER, a wave machine where children and adults can ride the powerful swell of water and take surf lessons. There is also a beautiful swimming pool lined by comfortable day beds for those who prefer to relax. Enjoy lunch or dinner with live music and DJ sets, costumed characters, and face-painting to keep children and grown-ups alike entertained. 


Beach hop cruise

SAN ANTONIO

Visit some of the finest beaches of San Antonio Bay and discover the surrounding islands and caves on a Beach Hop Cruise. Board your glass-bottomed boat in San Antonio and set off for a leisurely 5-hour cruise to Cala Bassa and Cala Conta beaches to splash around in the warm, shallow waters. Choose between a daytime or sunset cruise.


Es Currals Alpacas Ibiza

SAN CARLOS

With the popularity of these fluffy, cute South American mammals at an all-time high, little ones will love a visit to Es Currals, Ibiza's first alpaca farm in the North of the island. Home to an alpaca family of five, Es Currals welcomes small groups of visitors (up to six people) by reservation only to protect the wellbeing of these precious animals. There is also a craft studio on the farm, which hosts 2-day wool weaving and spinning workshops on request.  


Ulises Cat glass bottom boat

FIGUERETAS / PLAYA D'EN BOSSA

One for budding naturalists. The Ulises Cat excursions offer the chance to get up close and personal with Ibiza's aquatic wildlife, without getting your feet wet. The trip to the mighty rock of Es Vedrà would stir the curiosity of any budding nature lover.


Acrobosc Ibiza adventure land

SANTA EULALIA

Nestled amid the pine trees near Santa Eulalia is Acrobosc adventure land. The climbing parkour requires perseverance, mental aptitude and endurance to complete. With three circuits of varying levels of difficulty, there are options for everyone from ages three upwards. Navigate a variety of obstacles, including tightropes, zip slides and cargo nets. This is two and a half hours of adrenaline-filled fun, regardless of how old you are.


Coyma Sunride electric bike tours

SAN ANTONIO & ES FIGUERAL

Dive into the wild nature of Ibiza on an electric bike with Coyma Sunride. Departing from Hotel Cala Blanca in Es Figueral, participants drive down country lanes, through organic farms and beautiful beaches taking in the varied countryside.

Suitable for all ages and with no training required, this is fun and sustainable adventure for the whole family! Remember you can pedal or let the electric bike kick in when you need a rest.


Aquarium Cap Blanc

At Aquarium Cap Blanc, natural limestone caves have been turned into a living, breathing aquarium. In several pools you can observe, close-up, much of the marine wildlife that inhabits the waters around Ibiza and Formentera. Fishes, rays, sharks, octopuses and even the occasional turtle. Here the bar and sea view just adds to this small place as an attraction.


Ibiza Horse Valley 

SAN JUAN

Located in the mountains outside the tiny village of San Juan, Ibiza Horse Valley is a rescue centre and charity for horses that has rehomed and rehabilitated these gentle giants. They offer unforgettable 4-hour treks through the unspoilt nature of the North for riders of all levels, from the minimum age of 14. Before the group ( eight riders maximum) sets off, each of the horses and their unique background gets introduced before the riders get matched to the ideal steed for their personality and riding skills. It's a magical way to explore the quiet side of the island that will touch your heart!
