Far from its party capital image, Ibiza boasts striking scenery, charming family resorts and many of the best beaches in the Balearics. The coastline offers incredible variety, from long sandy shorelines to secluded rocky bays. Further inland, undisturbed villages and white-washed houses are set in hilly hideaways among the lemon and olive groves. Coastal areas cater for every conceivable sports and leisure activity, while those who seek pure relaxation just tune into Ibiza’s laidback tempo.View villas in Ibiza
Away from the lively capital, the low key resorts home to many of our villas in Ibiza are the island’s great idiosyncrasy. Here life takes a slower pace.

Coastal routes take you from beach to beach and a trip into the mountains offers spectacular sea views from the cliff tops.
A sports paradise, the island has golf courses, horse riding, diving and boat trips. Taking one of the many tour trains is also a great way to see the island away from its bustling beach resorts.
With nearly 60 beaches to choose from on Ibiza, you’re never far from a wonderful stretch of golden sand or a sheltered cove. The island’s waters are also amongst the cleanest in the Mediterranean.

Shopping on Ibiza offers a truly unique experience. Across the island you’ll find a selection of outlets, most of which stay open late.
Hippy markets provide the perfect opportunity to sample this much-loved Ibizan culture. Colourful stalls sell exotic batik wraps and clothing, tailor-made leather moccasins and a tantalising variety of east Asian silver jewellery and trinkets. Trendy boutiques are famous for their ‘ad-lib’ fashions, whether you go day or night-time shopping in the Old Town of Ibiza. Art galleries and local crafts are also in abundance here.

Visit the weekly Wednesday hippy market at Es Canar.
Take a boat trip to the little sister island of Formentera and switch off - no planes, and no five star hotels - just Caribbean-like turquoise seas, white sand beaches and charming villages.
