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 seven of the best ones for you and the family to enjoy the island to the max.

Beach hop cruise


Visit some of the finest beaches of San Antonio Bay and discover the distant 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.



With four different themed rooms to choose from Escape Rooms Ibiza invites you along to a real life escape game where you use your wits, your intelligence as you and your kids work out how to escape a locked room. During your 60-minute session you will need to look for clues, break codes, look for hidden objects and solve the mysteries within.

Ulises Cat glass bottom boat


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 Es Vedrà would stir the curiosity of any budding nature lover.

Acrobosc Ibiza Adventure Land


Nestled amid the pine trees near Santa Eulalia is Acrobosc adventure land. The assault course 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.



Dive into the wild nature of Ibiza on an electric bike treasure hunt with Coyma Sunride. Departing from Hotel Cala Blanca in Es Figueral, participants follow an ancient map leading them down country lanes, through organic farms and beautiful beaches in search of the clues that will reveal the location of buried treasure. There is even time to take a little break to relax with alpacas, sheep, pigs and ponies during the hunt.

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.

Ibiza Watersports


Located on S'Estanyol beach in San Antonio Bay, Ibiza Watersports offers a selection of inflatables for thrill-seeking adventurers. As well as old favourite the banana boat, other options include the tornado and the flyfish. A speedboat will zip you across the water at lightening pace, so hold on tight. In total there are ten to choose from, so you could easily spend an entire day testing them all out.

Tourist Train


For those who don't want to be on their feet for a day, the Tourist Train is the ideal way to see landmarks, lovely rolling countryside and gorgeous beaches, with your feet up. Going from several family resorts such as Es Caná, Cala Llonga and Santa Eulalia, they are great to hop on and let the world roll by. Get some great snaps for Instagram next to traditional finca farmhouses or pretty villages. Better and faster than a postcard and you are actually in it.

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.
