Why should I choose a family holiday in Ibiza?

A family trip to Ibiza is a great way to let your hair down and relax. Far from the wild party zones of Ibiza Town and San Antonio, you'll find white sand beaches, beautiful landscapes and creative activities to enjoy. Even in the height of summer, temperatures in Ibiza are not extreme. Daytime temperatures rarely go higher than 30°C, while in winter they don't tend to dip below 10°C, so you might even want to spend Christmas in Ibiza. The island is known for its safety, and you can easily get around by public transport, which also adds to its child-friendly appeal.

The best things to do in Ibiza for families

Have fun on the beach

Of course, this has to be top of the list. Many of the best areas in Ibiza for families are beach resorts, and most visitors will be planning at least one beach day during their holiday. Cala Tarida is a great choice for a kid-friendly beach, thanks to its gentle waters. It's also home to the Cotton Beach Club, where the grown-ups can relax at the gourmet restaurant while the little ones are kept busy with arts and crafts in the kids' club.

Splash around at the island's water park

One of the most popular family-friendly attractions on the island, Aguamar Water Park is perfect for a fun day out. There are paddling pools for the very youngest kids to enjoy, as well as heart-thumping water slides that teens and thrill-seeking grown-ups will love. There are seven main slides at this park, which is open each year from mid-May to the end of September.

Take a boat trip to Formentera

Enjoy an adventurous day for the whole family with a ferry ride to Formentera. This tiny island is the smallest of the Balearics, and its beaches are quieter. The boat ride, which takes half an hour, will be exciting for little kids, as you'll enjoy fabulous views of the two islands. There are between 12 and 25 departures a day, depending on the season.

Get your face painted at a hippy market

If you're staying in a finca in Ibiza in the north of the island, you'll be able to enjoy the unique hippy vibes. The biggest and best is Punta Arabi in Es Canar, which is sure to be a highlight of your family holiday in Ibiza. It has live music from 2 to 4 pm and plenty to keep the whole family busy. There are face painters, magicians and entertainers, as well as stalls where kids can enjoy some crafts. Let creative little ones make their own t-shirts or a unique floral crown to wear during the rest of their stay.

Several of the island's famous beach clubs welcome the whole family. The upmarket Cotton Beach Club has a handicrafts-focused kids' club, while the famous El Chiringuito has a Little Chiringuito section for youngsters to paint and draw. Babylon Beach is probably the best choice if you have active kids, as it has a wonderful wooden adventure playground.

What are the best beaches on Ibiza for kids?

Cala Tarida and Cala Talamanca are both great, thanks to their shallow water. Cala Llonga is also worth checking out, as it has a dedicated kids' area complete with trampolines and playground equipment.

Are restaurants in Ibiza kid-friendly?

Yes, it would be very unusual for an Ibizan restaurant to have any restrictive policies around children.

Spanish restaurants do not usually have a separate children's menu, although you will often find them in tourist zones.
