Planing a family holiday might be complicated unless we find a hotel with services for children which allows us to combine the relax we all search during holidays with the family activities. In Ibiza we find many hotels for families which offer these type of services: entertainment for children, children’s swimming pool and Jacuzzis for adults or even buffets with children’s menus which will delight the youngest members of the family.
Before we take a decision, it is important to choose a hotel with a good location to visit the main tourist attractions for families and enjoy the hotel activities. In the white island we find many must-visit places where children will have a good time while they discover some of the autochthonous species from Ibiza or its traditions. In the village of Sant Antoni de Portmany we find one of the most interesting sites for families in Ibiza: the Aquarium Cap Blanc, also known as “the cave of the lobster”. The cave was used as a lobster hatchery and was turned into an aquarium for marine conservation in 1989. In order to conclude a leisure day in the underground of Ibiza, we recommend you visit the Can Marçà Caves, 20 km away from the capital, where children will be able to learn about the formation of these natural spots.
If you are travelling to the island in winter, you cannot miss some of the best beaches for families: Cala Turida, a beach with an easy access and parking, Platja d’en Bossa or Es Figueral, with showers, lifeguards, hammocks, access for disabled people and parking. But if you prefer to enjoy the family calmness, we recommend you visit some of the less crowded beaches of the island, such as Cala d’Hort, from where you may contemplate the magic islet of Es Vedrà, or Es Pout des Lleó, located 5 km from Santa Eulària des Riu, a paradisiac sandy cove with fishermen’s huts: a perfect place for scuba diving.
