Ibiza with kids is a great travel idea, because the biggest island of the Pitiusas (Ibiza and Formentera) is not only beaches and parties, but it also offers endless possibilities to enjoy as a family.
You can visit it all year round, finding the best climate in spring, summer and autumn. Go and discover its beautiful sunsets and its corners full of natural magic in the company of your kids, including visiting these places that we are going to propose you.
Best things to do in Ibiza with kids
Building sandcastles on Talamanca Beach
The largest beach and loved by families thanks to its tranquillity and calm waters. Reaching the beach is very easy by bus or car and, besides that, the beach itself is also very easy accessible. You will have at your disposal showers, slogans, services and lifeguards. Do you want to practise water sports? Here you will have the possibility to fly-board or rent a canoe.
Go hiking through the Natural Park of Ses Salines
Ses Salines is a Natural Park since 2001. It occupies 3,000 hectares of land and 13,000 of sea, so it takes part of the south of Ibiza and the north of Formentera, as well as the sea that separates them (which houses the famous and valuable meadows of oceanic Posidonia).
You can visit the park on your own or by the planned routes, that stop at the defence towers, in the salt ponds and at the viewpoints where you can enjoy amazing panoramas. From here you will see the towers of Es Carregador and Ses Portes, some churches and the beaches of Es Codolar or Es Cavallet.
A day of fun in Aguamar
It is a water park that you will find on the Bossa Beach. Both you and the kids can swim in the shallow wave pools, having fun in the slides of all sizes, spend a little time in the park, sunbathe in the hammock area, ask for a cold beer in the cafeteria or eat in the picnic area. For your convenience, you will find lockers, services, a cloakroom, safety deposit boxes and a nurse’s office.
Go see the Aquarium Cap Blanc
It is also known as “Sa cova de ses llagostes” because, formerly, it was a lobster farm. It is a recommended visit for both adults and children. Inside you’ll find a cave of 370 square metres in which 5 entries of water are in circulation and 6 fish tanks have been enabled that reach the capacity of 5000 litres of water. Here you can see many Mediterranean species that are distributed according to their compatibility: octopus, bass, wrasses, rays, sponges, shark eggs…
You would like to know that this aquarium hosts the headquarters of the CREM (Centre for the Recovery of Marine Species), which strives to make society aware of the problems suffered by the marine world and the recovery of the loggerhead turtle.
Stroll through Dalt Vila
Dalt Vila is how the old town of the city is known. As you can imagine, walking through narrow, cobbled streets that end in places with incredible views. Actually, Dalt Vila is not the best place to visit in Ibiza with babies or very small children, because some streets are very steep and crossing them with baby strollers is somewhat uncomfortable, also due to the cobblestones.
A good place to discover when the temperatures are lower, is the Cathedral of Santa Maria. You will also like to take a walk through the neighbourhood of La Marina, which is next to the port and has many establishments to buy souvenirs.
Enjoy a sunset from the beach
Okay, for kids it’s not the most fun plan to do on the island – depends on the age – but for the dads it will mean creating some precious memories of the trip. A family photo with an Ibizan sunset in the background will be perfect for in your living room! It can be a selfie, but better if you let someone take a photo of all of you with a camera or a mobile phone with good quality. Are your photos going straight to Instagram? Well do not miss this post where we teach you to make good and “instagramable” photos.
In Ibiza it is easy to find beautiful sunsets, but the best ones you will see from the Café del Mar, in San Antonio; from the famous Cala Conta Beach; from Benirrás Beach, a cove surrounded by nature and from the turquoise Cala Bassa Beach.
A trip to Formentera
You can not leave Ibiza without visiting its neighbour Formentera. You can travel to this island from the port of Ibiza, from which fast boats and ferries leave often. It takes half an hour to arrive and your little sailor fans will love this trip!
To visit Formentera we recommend you to rent a car (the motorbike is typical, but with kids, a car would be better) and travel at your own pace; the island isn’t very big, it has 83.2 km² of surface. In the port of La Savina you can rent cars, although it is better to book it in advance.
And this is our selection of this to do in Ibiza with kids! Of course, there are more activities to do with children, do you know any? If you are looking for a stay on Ibiza, these are our best villas on this magical island!
