Ibiza boasts more than 100 miles of coastline with some 50 beaches, plus plenty of restaurants, bars, and water sports - and clubs, of course.

Fit in a little culture and visit Ibiza's UNESCO-designated old town. Ibiza has a wide range of trips which allow our visitors to discover incredible coastal scenery on boat trips, flights by hot-air balloon with exceptional views of the island and also, the chance to enjoy a trip on a little train to admire inland nature.
