Often branded as the party island packed full of young clubbers, you may be surprised to hear that the small Balearic island of Ibiza can offer you the perfect family holiday boasting gorgeous sandy beaches, friendly eateries and family attractions to keep the whole brood entertained.
The Santa Eulalia resort of Ibiza is a beautiful town on the East coast that is popular with families looking for a quieter holiday but still packed with fun. There are still excellent bars yet they provide a more laid back atmosphere compared to the bright lights of San Antonio, exclusive shopping areas and white sandy beaches where the family can enjoy an array of water sports from gentle pedalos to an exhilarating banana boat ride!
For great day trips, there are plenty of attractions across the island that are only a short drive away. Piruleto Park located in Santa Eulalia is an indoor play park packed full of fun activities for younger children from a soft play park to ball pools and rides, or if you want to cool off but don’t fancy a day by the beach, head to the Aguamar Waterpark in Ibiza Town where you can enjoy some superb slides and thrilling rides. There are picnic areas and gardens too where you can soak up the sun and plenty of pools that are perfect for a dip and sheltering from the heat.
If you really want to get the heart racing and have thrill seekers within the family, Air Zone Ibiza Park is the place to head to get your kicks, or at least give those searching for an adventure the chance to find it! Step into the large inflatable orbs and experience different terrains from rolling down large hills, running on water or simply have a friendly family game in the bumper arena trying to playfully bounce off of each other. Keen explorers will enjoy a boat trip to Ibiza’s sister island of Formentera where you can relax on idyllic beaches, spot tropical sea life whilst snorkelling and enjoy stunning views across the Balearic sea.
Set your senses alive when you choose to holiday in Ibiza with the rich infused flavours of local dishes offered in the many restaurants and eateries across the country. Mediterranean traditional delicacies from fresh fish to hearty stews accompanied with potatoes, freshly tossed salads, or vegetables lovingly dosed in olive oil will tantalise your taste buds and are beautifully complimented when washed down with a local tipple or two. Plenty of the restaurants are family-friendly and family-run and will happily prepare, or already offer specific dishes that the children will adore.
Luxury holidays in Ibiza can appeal to the whole family and with the island being so diverse across its landscape, you’ll be sure to find an attraction to suit every member of the family on this gorgeous, serene, tranquil yet lively, family-friendly island.
