How to do Ibiza with the kids

Ibiza isn't just one of most incredible party destinations in the world, it's also a much loved destination for families looking to get away for a while. Whether you and your little ones are looking for a relaxing time in the sunshine, or a fun filled adventure complete with thrilling activities, Ibiza has you covered. You can make this incredible island in the Balearics your family favourite, just follow these simple steps.

What to do?

The all important question is how to fill your time in Ibiza. It's known for its club-culture, but Ibiza is actually chock-full of family activities for young and old to get stuck into. Wherever you stay on the island, you'll find a number of these on your doorstep, and the rest just a short trip away.

If you want to try something unique, Air Zone and Surf Lounge in San Antonio Town are perfect for your entire family. These two separate activities tackle the elements, with the first allowing you to roll around strapped inside large, padded zorb balls, and the second sending you to tackle artificial waves on a surfboard.

Getting back to nature is easy at Acrobosc, the island's best treetop climbing experience. You'll be swinging like monkeys from branches and vines, attached to a safety rope so you can really let yourselves go.

To take things a little slower, you can hire bikes and cycle around the scenic island. There are a number of beautiful routes through the forests and hills of Ibiza, with plenty of wildlife to see, or picture-perfect little villages to walk around.

Where to eat?

Depending on your taste, there are a number of fantastic restaurants which welcome families in with a warm smile and, often, a separate menu for the kids. In fact – in true Spanish style – almost all of the Ibiza cafes and seafront restaurants are family-friendly. However, if you want to experience the best culinary success with your little ones, then try one of these picks.

Samovar Restaurant and Bistro in Santa Eulalia is top of the list, with its stylish interior and artistic food preparation. They particularly take care to entertain you with live music at weekends and have a separate club for kids.

If you're after something a bit meatier, then El Viejo Gallo in Port des Torrent is the place to go. This steakhouse has a great family-friendly vibe and serves up the best in locally-reared meats and veg, so no need to worry about your family getting a healthy meal.

Where to swim?

Of course, most hotel and apartment complexes come with a swimming pool or two, which you'll undoubtedly spend hours beside lounging around in the sunshine while your little ones dive in and out. This doesn't stop you longing for something a little larger, though. Nothing beats the ocean for swimming, and in Ibiza there are hundreds of beaches which are very family friendly.

Es Cana beach is a must for families, not least due to its healthy range of water activities. By hiring a boat you can make your own way around the many strips of golden sand, looking for the one that suits you best.

You might stumble upon the secluded and welcoming Cala Gracio beach, which is just a few minutes stroll from the San Antonio Bay. This coved strip of coast is the absolute height of relaxation and should be on your list of places to see in Ibiza. Remember, you're just a stone's throw from all the action if you do get a sudden itch to explore.

Where to stay?

First up, is finding a place to lay your sun hat. This is absolutely crucial if you and you family are going to make the most out of your much needed Ibiza getaway.

There are plenty of places where you can be close to the action, but with your own space to breath if you need to just kick back and read. For example, San Antonio Bay is beside San Antonio Town and has excellent beaches, but is far enough away to get a good night's sleep.

If you want to be a bit out of the way of the action, there are lots of relaxed locations, where families can get on with their holidays at a slower pace. Check out Puerto Cala Vadella apartment complex, which provides an easy-going and friendly environment with modern facilities.

You might want to get among it, in which case the vibrant atmosphere of the Hard Rock Hotel in Playa d'en Bossa could be for you. It's child-friendly with the Roxity kids club and large pool area and, if you're children are over 14, they can come to the music events with you.
