Ibiza’s party atmosphere has overshadowed its reputation for the past few decades, but those in the know rave about the island’s family friendly attractions. So, isn’t it about time you discovered what this beautiful destination has to offer?
For example, Santa Eulalia on the east of island is a very family friendly spot, with quieter beaches, laid back restaurants and loads of activities for all ages.
So, BabyBreaks has done the hard work for you and put together a selection of the best activities in Ibiza with kids.
1. Hit the Beach
Ibiza has a staggering 80 beaches to choose from, which come in all shapes and sizes. In addition to sandy bays perfect for paddling, there are secret coves where rockpools teem with marine life. A sure fire hit when travelling to Ibiza with kids.
Families love Cala Llonga (pictured) for its calm waters and good selection of amenities. Likewise, quieter Cala Llenga is perfect for a family picnic and snorkelling.
2. Acrobosc Ibiza Adventure Park
Ibiza’s answer to the UK’s Go Ape, this outdoor adventure park is a fantastic activity for all ages. Suitable for children aged 3 and over, there are zip wires, treetop walkways and obstacles to get to grips with. There are varying levels of difficulty and expertly trained staff on hand, so no need for parents to stand on the sidelines! In other words, you can unleash your inner Tarzan too!
Opening Hours: Open from April to October. Tues-Fri 2pm-7pm. Sat & Sun 10am-8pm
3. Aguamar Water Park
Who doesn’t love a water park on holiday?! Agaumar is Ibiza’s go-to spot for all thing wet and wild. There are white-knuckle flumes for adrenaline seekers, colourful fun slides and play areas for little ones as well as plenty of areas to just relax in the sun if you wish. Refuel after all that activity at the onsite restaurant and café, or bring your own picnic to enjoy on the lawn.
Opening Hours: Open daily 10am – 6pm
4. Boat Trip to Formentera Island
Formentera is the smallest (and many say the prettiest) of the Balearic Islands, and it’s just a short boat trip away from Ibiza. The unspoiled island is blessed with beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters that are perfect for snorkelling, and a really laid back atmosphere. You will feel relaxed just being there! It’s popular to hire a bike when you are there to explore – the kids can go on your tandem bike if they are too small to cycle.
Frequent ferries make the journey to Formentera each day, or if you want your own adventure you could hire a speed boat or even sail there yourself.
5. Kids Yoga
Ibiza is famed for its laid back, hippie vibe which goes hand in hand with its numerous yoga studios and retreats. So if your kids could do with a calming activity, book them into a kids yoga class, and enjoy a relaxing class yourself while you’re there. There are several specialist family yoga studios on the island, offering a range of classes such as family acro-yoga, kids aqua yoga or mum and baby yoga.
