Ibiza’s best resorts are scattered all around the coast of the island.

Small friendly Es Cana is in the east and is home to Ibiza’s oldest and biggest hippy market. On the north-west coast are quiet San Antonio Bay and its buzzy neighbour San Antonio Town. For family holidays in Ibiza head to the east coast to Santa Eulalia and its broad sandy beach. Near the northernmost tip is the tranquil resort of Portinatx and its trio of beaches.

More than 80 of them are dotted around the island, offering everything from blissed-out days in the sun to exhilarating watersports. Head inland to discover exquisite whitewashed villages like San Agustin and San Juan set in pine-clad hills. Browse the handmade crafts at the hippy markets that recall Ibiza’s trippy days of the 1960s and 70s.

Dramatic cliffs and pine forests hover over the white pebbly beach at Cala Jondal on the south-west coast. It may be one of the trendiest places in Ibiza, but the atmosphere here is very relaxed. Spot the celebrities at Los Salinas south of Ibiza Town, where beach clubs build up the party atmosphere. Head north to the white sands of the gorgeous bay of Cala Xarraca, where you can sink into the healing mud bath sheltered by rocky cliffs.
