Ibiza - much more than just a party
For many people, Ibiza is a synonym for party until dawn. But the beautiful green island can score with many more things. Lonely bays, hiking trails, ancient sights and culinary insider tips - there is something for every taste. For a quiet family vacation in Ibiza, especially the east coast is highly recommended. Here you can find lot of peace and many Ibiza beaches are ideal for children.
The east of Ibiza - culture meets idyll
From a holiday villa or a finca various destinations can be approached in the east of the island. Also is this part of Ibiza ideal for hiking or cycling.
Culture enthusiasts can visit the Cova des Culleram in the northeast of Ibiza, near the bay of Cala San Vicente. The rather inconspicuous cave consists of a few small chambers and is an important part of Ibiza's cultural heritage. The cave was an important Carthaginian place of worship until the 2nd century BC - around 600 terracotta images of the fertility and fortune goddess Tanit were found here. The Cova of Culleram reflects the spiritual side of Ibiza and many visitors still leave Tanit a small sacrifice there.
The culture of Ibiza can be found not only in ancient sites, but also, for example, in the traditional village of San Carlos, where many dropouts settled in the 70s and 80s of the 20th century. The "Hippy Village" still lures with the traditional "hippy market" in Las Dalias, which opens every Saturday for locals and tourists throughout the year. It is an ideal place to relax after exploring the idyllic island during the day.
The beautiful and quiet bays and cozy country restaurants of the Morna Valley invite you to linger. Away from the mass tourism, you can lie in peace on the sandy beach of Cala Mastella or dine in the Cala Boix in one of the restaurants that are popular with connoisseurs because of the excellent fish.
The small bay of Pou des Lleó, on the other hand, offers the perfect setting for snorkeling, as the beach consists of both sand and pebbles. A small beach bar completes your visit to the beach.
Between party holidays and recreation
Driving along the east coast of Ibiza to the south, you can stop on the beach of s'Argamassa and do various water sports. Although the bay is comparatively small, it offers popular activities such as water skiing, banana boat rentals and canoe rentals. Afterwards, you can relax in a beach bar or in one of the restaurants before exploring the nightlife of Ibiza.
The third largest town of Ibiza is Santa Eulalia, which is only 21 kilometers away from the airport. Despite this proximity, a family or relaxing holiday is possible here, as the city is known as a place of rest. Santa Eulalia is also considered the gastronomic and cultural center of the island with many cozy bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a party, you can reach Ibiza Town in just a few minutes by car. There is also a bus service between the two cities.
A place to settle or for exclusive holidays
The guarded urbanization of Roca Llisa is located between Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia. If you rent a holiday villa there, you will be not far to the next town while you can still spend a quiet and relaxing holiday. On the coast, you have an impressive view of the idyllic landscape, ideal for hiking or cycling.
An exclusive holiday is possible here, away from mass tourism. Many people choose this place to settle permanently, as well. Leisure facilities are also available on the golf course nearby. Here you can meet friends and neighbors and play a round of golf.
The east of Ibiza stands out for its tranquility, its exclusivity, but also for its traditional and cultural heritage. Please inform yourself at Engel & Völkers about a villa in the east of Ibiza for your next holiday.
