Family Holidays


Ibiza is the ideal destination for family holidays as it offers beaches, culture, leisure activities and events in which the younger family members play an active part.

The beaches of Ibiza, for example, are perfect for families with small children due to the easy access, the crystalline waters and the availability of all the services required for families.

During the winter months the Town Council also puts the “21st century beaches” programme into action, meaning families can enjoy a range of seaside activities thanks to the gentle climate and abundance of sunny days. Activities include excursions, yoga classes, children’s workshops and activities featuring clowns, all of which make the beaches the ideal family meeting place during the autumn, winter and spring months.

The younger family members will also enjoy the range of cultural visits on offer, which includes a variety of proposals adapted to their requirements, for example the dramatized visits to Dalt Vila and the Puig des Molins Necropolis, which are available all year round.

No doubt the entire family will enjoy a journey through history in Dalt Vila, where the snapshots taken next to the canons and the visits to the interactive spaces such as the Sant Pere and Sant Jaume bastions are sure to make the highlight reel. In addition the Dalt Vila Cultural Heritage Site is full of fascinating nooks and crannies to be discovered and enjoyed in the company of family and friends.

Children are also the stars of the guided tours of the museums that are available all year round. For example, families are invited every Saturday and Sunday morning to the Contemporary Art and Puquet Museums, both of which offer a variety of activities, workshops and guided tours for families and groups, with different itineraries depending on the season.

The programme of events also includes some unmissable highlights, such as the Medieval Festival, which commemorates the UNESCO declaration of Ibiza’s World Heritage Sites. The festival takes place every year on the second weekend in May and features an extensive programme of activities designed for all the family.

Whether it is Christmas, carnival time, Easter Week or any other time of year, Ibiza offers an extensive programme of activities designed to be enjoyed by the younger family members or by the family as a whole. Every Saturday morning, for example, the Mercat Vell offers activities and workshops for children during the months of March, April and May.

Ibiza always extends a warm welcome to children and families, who are sure to discover multiple opportunities for enjoying an unforgettable holiday in which theatre, music, sports, beach activities and cultural and leisure programmes for all ages are never far away.
