Do you need to bath in the sun ? Ibiza is a perfect location to relax. What can you do in Ibiza? Talamanca Beach: If you’re based in Ibiza Town and fancy a quieter day at the beach then couple of minutes up from the marina is another of the island’s largest beaches. Here there’s a wide sweep of snow-white sand backed by low-density development. The scenery around Talamanca is made up of small, pine-cloaked hills and the small holiday community of Cap Martinet. Right on the beach are great little places to eat, serving Balearic culinary favourites like bullit de peix or more cosmopolitan options. The beach is tucked deep between two headlands so the waters are gentle and child-friendly.
The port city known as Ibiza Town is the largest and pretiest destination on the island. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Ibiza Town boasts a walled fortress as well as cobblestone streets. Locals call the city Eivissa. Ibiza Town is divided into sections: Dalt Vila and Eixample. Perched above the water, Dalt Vila, or Old Town, is the historic area filled with world-class restaurants and a great selection of bars. Below, you’ll find Eixample, or Extension, where most of the newer buildings can be found. While visiting, be sure to check out the Cathedral called Our Lady of the Snows, which offers perhaps the best views in the entire town.
Located on the West of the island, Cala Comte has a small beach with sun loungers as well as a rocky coastline with plenty of carved flat platforms to base yourselves on for the day – perfect for anyone who loves the sea but hates the sand. The water is shallow too which makes it a great spot to bring kids. Spend all day in the water until sunset, then head up to one of the three restaurants on top of the cliffs to enjoy the wide-lens views of the sun dropping behind the horizon.
Ibiza’s crystal, clear blue waters are perfecttttt for snorkelling (or scuba diving, if that’s your thing). There are a few companies who offer budget-friendly snorkel excursions, so definitely check them out (your Ibiza hostel can help you). But if you want to rent gear and explore on your own, make sure to jump in the water at Cala Conta, Aguas Blancas or Cala Salada. Each of those beaches offers heaps of marine life, little coves and clear water.
Car hire in Ibiza is cheap and easy. Rental vehicles are available from the airport as well as from car hire companies across the island. You’ll need to bring a valid UK driving licence with you if want to hire a car and a lot of rental companies also ask you for a credit card when you pick up your vehicle.
Like most of Europe, cars in Ibiza drive on the right. If you’re not used to driving on the other side of the road, the main thing to remember is that priority is given to cars coming from the left at roundabouts and crossroads. If you’re ever in doubt about who has right of way, it’s best to err on the side of caution and let the other driver go first. Read more info at Getting around Ibiza.
