Ibiza Spotlight selects: top water sports

Get on the water, get wet, have lots of fun.

Ibiza and Formentera are famous for the beautiful, clear waters that surround them. 

With stunning coastline to boast of as well as wild and wonderful marine life, you have a water sports adventure playground right on your doorstep!

Thanks to the Balearic Islands' abundance of sunny days, the sea is warm enough to enjoy a paddle, surf, or adrenaline-fuelled Jet Ski ride any time between June and October (or even May until November, if you are brave).

We've got a superb selection of water-based activities for you, so read on below and find the one (or ones) for you.

Another great way to enjoy sea and coast is by chartering a boat for the day - choose from our pick of top boat charter companies.
