Breathtaking scenery, crystal clear beaches, amazing weather, crazy clubbing, and unlimited fun-filled entertainment—Ibiza offers the perfect vacation for lone wayfarers as well as for families. The idyllic Spanish island is home to 56 picturesque beaches with creeks, pine-covered hills, and white sand. The weather is clear and the temperatures stay around 28° C throughout the summer months, which make this traditional and historic place ideally suited for families. The island is small, which means that you don’t have to spend much time on the road, and can get around with kids without much hassle. The fun and entertainment assume a whole new dimension if you book one of the Ibiza luxury villas to rent.
The heavenly island first became famous among well-off travelers, hippies, and celebrities the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Yves Saint Laurent. This gave it a reputation of being a cool, stylish and expensive place, apart from an aura of being a place for partying, drinking and going crazy. The fact is that such activities are just a tiny part of an Ibiza holiday. Away from the neon signs and scantily clad crowds of party goers, Ibiza offers relaxation and fun for a perfect family vacation. In recent years, many families have discovered Ibiza to be an ideal holiday destination.
A rich history is one of the most enchanting attractions that the island offers. The cobbled streets of the old town remind you of the traditional European charm. The city is dotted with old cannons and drawbridges that add to the romance. The sweeping views of the surrounding bay and undulating green hills can keep you entertained all day. Kids love the place and would use their imagination to pretend as if pirates were ready to scale the ancient city walls. The experience is accentuated if you stay at one of the ideally situated luxury villas Ibiza.
You’ll never run short of activity and fun at Ibiza. If you have the energy, you could visit a different beach every day. However, the shallow, white sand beach of Las Salinas is an absolutely must-see attraction of the island. The Benirras beach in the North comes alive on Sunday evenings, with dancers and drummers flocking there to create a magical ambience. The city has many markets including the Hippy Market and the sprawling Wednesday markets of Es Caná, where you could shop till you drop.
Another family attraction is the Sunday fest at Greenheart in Casita Verde. It’s worth attending just for the sake of the enchanting drive to the center of the island, which will take you along the winding roads with sublime views. At Greenheart, you’ll learn many things about adopting a green lifestyle and how to do things in a more ecologically sustainable way.
Apart from the natural attractions, there are many manmade activities to immerse yourself in. These include family lessons in swimming, yoga, reikie, and even Bhangra for kids. The food is simply amazing at so many restaurants, which serve everything from tapas to continental and from healthy food to juices, including culinary delights even for those who live for eating. By the time your vacation comes to an end, you’ll be falling in love with Ibiza, and will feel like staying for another couple of weeks.
