So whether you want to take your Ibiza holiday fast or slow, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for here.

You’ll find more than 80 of them dotted around the island, offering everything from laid-back days in the sun to pulse-racing water sports. If you’re eager to explore beyond the beaches during your holiday to ibiza you can head inland to discover exquisite whitewashed villages like San Agustin and San Juan; these stunning settlements are tucked away amid fragrant, pine-clad hills.
