6 Places to visit on your trip to ibiza
It’s a shame to have to choose only 6 places, but we know you value your time, and want to make sure you don’t miss any of the must-see places on your next visit to Ibiza. That’s why we’ve selected the five must-see places for you (+ a bonus track) to include in your next trip
It is difficult to choose one single beach of the island, but if we had to do it, Cala Bassa is undoubtedly a must. A family beach, accessible and sheltered, with fine sand and always crystal clear waters. It is a safe beach with parking facilities and two gastronomic options suitable for different types of pockets. Its famous Beach Club CBBC, with music, beach service and hammocks, or the chiringuito, located at the corner of the beach at more popular prices. If you have more time, other coves we recommend are Cala Conta, Cala Tarida, Aguas Blancas or Las Salinas.
Las Dalias Market & Sant Carles
Of the many market on the island, Las Dalias is undoubtedly one of the most iconic. It was born as a dance floor in 1954, and has been transformed into an open-air market. In the summer months welcomes artists and sellers of all kinds in a bohemian atmosphere despite the large number of visitors that visit it every Saturday. It is worth investing a morning to visit it, and take the opportunity to visit its neighbouring village, Sant Carles. As it is in the north of the island, it is a town that preserves more of the Ibiza architecture. Located in a more rural and protected area, it is perfect for a walk. You also can find one of the bars that most symbolises the origins of the hippie movement on the island, Bar Anita. A perfect place to enjoy some ibicencan “montaditos” and herbs after having enjoyed Las Dalias.
Port of Ibiza & Dalt Vila
Recently refurbished, the port of Ibiza town is practically pedestrianised, with wide pavements in the marina area, and narrow streets full of restaurants. The best time to stroll around the harbour is in the afternoon, and let the night come while strolling through the narrow streets, enjoying the shops and having a drink. A few metres away and walking towards the old market is the main entrance to the walled city which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known as Dalt Vila. There are many bastions and viewpoints available along the route, from where you can enjoy panoramic views of the city and the port of Ibiza.
Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel
If you want to choose a party, without a doubt we chose the magic tasks of Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel. The best DJ’s in the world meet in this magical place to enjoy what are undoubtedly the best parties on the island. The good thing about their schedule (from 6pm to 11pm approx) is that they allow you to link up with a night party in some other disco if your body asks for more, like the disco Hï, located just in front. You can also choose to go to bed after the party and be fresh the next morning if you have any early plans.
Salinas de Ibiza
The Natural Park of Ses Salines de Ibiza, also known as Las Salinas, is a protected area located between Ibiza and Formentera. It covers a large area of 16,000 hectares, of which 13,000 are marine. The Natural Park covers the wetlands of Ses Salines, in the south of Ibiza; S’Estany del peix and S’Estany Pudent, in the north of Formentera; the beaches of Es Codolar, Canal de s’Olla, Las Salinas and Es Cavallet in Ibiza; and the Peninsula d’es Trucadors of Formentera, where the beaches of Illetes and Llevant are located.
A classic on the island is the famous sunsets over the sea. There are many options to enjoy this magical moment, but if we have to stay with two, we choose the following two. 1- The area of the Café del Mar, in Sant Antoni de Portmany, is a place that often brings together hundreds of people to enjoy this moment. 2 -The platform near the Torre des Savinar, on the way to Cala D’Hort. This is a natural platform overlooking the islets of Es Vedrá and Es Vedranell which is also often one of the most visited and photographed spots on the island.
