Ibiza is a world-renowned party island, but there’s so much more to see and do here than dance the night away. Countless adventures are waiting for you and are all worthy contenders for your vacation ideas bucket list. Don’t miss out on the fun. Check out our top 7 bucket list ideas for a trip to Ibiza.
Explore The Balearic Islands By Boat
Like all islands, Ibiza is explored best from the water. And there’s no better way to do that than with a sailboat hire in Ibiza. It also allows you to visit the other beautiful Balearic Islands in the region, of which Ibiza is only one.
The neighboring island of Formentera to the south is the smallest one, popular with tourists worldwide. Sail around its shoreline, indulge in your favorite watersports and get to know the island.
Ibiza also has its fair share of yacht parties year-round. You may even decide to host an on-deck party here in the partygoers’ paradise of Ibiza.
Do The Can Marçà Caves Tour
Ibiza’s best adventures are along the coast, and a shore excursion tour is your best bet for discovering them. On the Can Marçà Caves tour, you’ll find a fascinating cave system said to be an ancient pirate hideout.
Cova de Can Marçà is situated in the north of the island, near Port de San Miguel. The stars of the show in these spooky underground caverns are the stalagmites and stalactites. They are skillfully lit up with an epic light show for visitors to enjoy.
Visit A UNESCO Heritage Site Town
There are many hidden gems in Ibiza, and this is yet another one. Dalt Vila, the capital of Ibiza, is also a World Heritage Site.
A walking tour of the Old Town will offer glimpses into Ibiza’s distant past. See the old churches, monuments, and other historic buildings that sit atop the hill, gazing down at the crowds below.
Enjoy A Two-Seater Scooter Excursion
Do you want to go on a tour of Ibiza’s outlying cities? If you hate the idea of a stuffy tour bus, that’s not a problem with this fun tour. Do some sightseeing with a retro vibe on a Vespa scooter. If you’ve never gone riding through nature on a Vespa scooter, now’s the time to do it.
So if you’re 21 or older and have a driver’s license, book a Vespa tour of Ibiza. What’s even better is that they use two-seater scooters. That’s great news if you’re traveling as a couple or with a friend.
Go Rock Climbing In Atlantis
For a wellness activity with great views, head to the lost city of Atlantis. Yes, you read that right! Atlantis has been found. Well, that’s the name of this wonderful place opposite the island of Es Vedra.
This ancient quarry was used to mine the stones for Ibiza’s Old Town walls. Nowadays, it’s the ideal spot for some recreation and self-reflection. Explore the interesting rock formations and magnificent views this ‘lost city of Atlantis’ offers.
Atlantis in Ibiza is opposite the island of es Vedra. It’s notorious among the locals and those in the know as one of the spiritual cores of Ibiza. It’s toughgoing to get down there and takes about 20 minutes – if you’re a fitty – could be an hour if you’re not.
The area was once used as a quarry to farm the stones to build the walls of Ibiza Town. Now the strange rock formations seem perfectly carved to create a great spot to sit in the cool winds, and it’s fun to make wishing towers from the smaller ones.
Take your swimming stuff down and make sure you’ve got plenty of water with you – the walk back up can be a killer, especially if you’ve been out partying the night before. And leave in good time before the sun goes down: I would not want to be down here in the dark.
Directions to Atlantis, Ibiza
1. Make your way from Es Cubells to Cala d’Hort – roads are tight.
2. Once you’ve reached the hill crest make a left onto the small camino, before the road turns to the right to es Boldado.
3. On this camino you will be able to see es Vedra ahead of you.
4. Parking is at the end of this road.
5. Now you’ll see Atlantis in front of you. You need to prepare yourself for the 20-minute walk down the mountain. You’ll see where to go, but keep to the right as this is where the jumping platform is, and the best spot to get in the water.
Admire Street Art While You Cycle
Go on a cycling tour through Ibiza on a sustainably-made bamboo bicycle. If that doesn’t sound exciting enough, a private street art cycle tour will introduce you to Ibiza’s street art scene.
The best artworks are not only in indoor art galleries. Get some exercise and a dose of fresh air, and enjoy outdoor art when you cycle through Ibiza. Take some selfies with a difference while you admire these creative urban artworks.
Experience A Rare Sight While Snorkeling
Around 3% of the Mediterranean contains a seagrass called Posidonia Oceanica, also known as Neptune Grass. Posidonia seagrass exists only in the Mediterranean and is thousands of years old. Experience a rare treat, and view this rare seagrass yourself. The waters surrounding Ibiza are home to this natural wonder.
These seagrass prairies support a rich diversity of marine life. And the best way to see these underwater treasures is with one of Ibiza’s many snorkeling tours. Be sure to check out Ibiza’s only aquarium. It’s a highlight of the Cala Salada catamaran and snorkeling tour.
