The many faces of Ibiza
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Ibiza is just an island full of pubs and clubs frequented by the usual 18-30s crowd. The party scene in Ibiza is legendary, but there’s more to this island than just loud and brash parties. In fact the contrasts are remarkable, from art galleries to amazing beaches to water sports there are a host of attractions to suit families, couples looking for romance or singles with friends outside of the massive club nights. Read on to find out which resort is right for you…
In reality, most of Ibiza’s party scene is focused around the buzzing town of San Antonio, which is located to the west of the island. If you want to spend most of your holiday drinking cocktails and dancing the night away to thumping basslines, then you need to stay here. All of our hotels in San Antonio are a stone’s throw away from the heart of the action, so check out our lively NRG range if you really want to be in the thick of it.
However, you don’t need to move too far out of San Antonio for a change of pace. Cala Gracio is only 1.5km away (a mere half an hour’s walk), but the spirit of the place is a world apart from the beating heart of the town centre. Here, the way of life is much more laid back. With a quiet beach and calm waters, it’s a perfect place for families or for those who just want to take life a little more slowly!
Ports des Torrent
Ibiza might not immediately strike you as family friendly, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you have a brood in tow, it doesn’t come any better than Ports des Torrent. Here, you’ll find our family friendly holiday village right beside the resort’s sandy beach. With a waterpark on site, a kids club and classes (payable locally) in swimming, football and drama, the children will never get bored. Plus, because it is all inclusive, you don’t need to worry about incurring extra costs on food and drink.
On the opposite side of the island lies the quiet little resort of Santa Eulalia. With a long, sandy beach, art galleries and some fantastic restaurants, it’s a great option for couples or families looking for a tranquil holiday. While there are a few bars in the resort centre, the nightlife is much more low-key than the scene in San Antonio.
