Thought your clubbing days were behind you? Think again! Families have been flocking to the party capital of Ibiza recently as many parents are keen to relive their youth with the kids in tow.
We can exclusively reveal the number of family bookings to the White Isle has risen by a staggering 125% from the first half of 2013 to that of 2016. In fact, we’ve seen an increase in family bookings to Ibiza for the past three years in a row.
It’s not just the activities themselves that are child-friendly, either. Ibiza is home to an impressive 15 Blue Flag beaches and there are plenty of restaurants that offer dedicated kids menus scattered across the island. In fact, families of all ages seem to be particularly well catered for here.
While the concept of a family-friendly Ibiza may seem a little alien at first, the island has far more to offer than just a lively nightlife scene. There’s a huge range of activities on offer that will appeal to all the family, including water parks and a great selection of kids clubs, many of which are open well into the night. There are also miles of shallow waters to explore – perfect for paddling!
