Who said Ibiza is only for partying? Discover the Mediterranean’s most hedonistic island with your family! Here are our suggestions of Ibiza child friendly places and activities.
Where to stay
Let’s begin with the accommodation question. Bonder & Co has a plenty of options of houses your family can enjoy and just because the villa is child-friendly, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the style. Just take a look around our extensive list of beautiful villas around the island.
Play on the beach
Spend the day at one of Ibiza’s amazing beaches. Some of them are quieter, perfect to have some private family time and some are very popular and so sometimes too overcrowded.
But most of them are perfect for families as they are very well organized with wooden paths to get closer to the water for the stroller, offering great services including lifeguards, showers, restaurants, beach clubs providing children’s corners and sport activities as well. See the variety here at Bonder & Co beach guide.
Behind one, Playa d’en Bossa beach, you can find the Aguamar Water Park, offering thrill as well as more tepid slides in addition to other water-based activities. And if you’ll get a bit tired from the midday sun, there are number of quieter areas.
Oh there are so many possibilities! If interested in Ibicencan history, hire a private cultural guide who will tell you all the secrets the old town hides. A great place where to spend your day is at Mini Ibiza, located in a country club with a great garden, colorful interior and loads of activities for your beloved ones, provided by super friendly multilingual staff.
Preferring something little bit more active, try Acrobosc, set in between green pine trees challenging both young and old. Two circuits to follow, thirty-nine platforms, 43 obstacles and 16 zip lines guarantee hours of fun and adrenaline.
Or try Spain’s first Air Zone Park having big orbs, cyclone and vortex, which you can play with on the water, or at a long inclining slope.
For the older ones, there’s a go-karting venue with a diverse range of karts, from slower karts for the infants to the nippy 400cc for the adults and everything in between. If you’d like to spend the day in a beautiful island’ nature and have a passion for horses, visit Can Mayol housing 40 horses in maintained stables, woodland and paddocks. And every Sunday it’s the kids’ day! Or go exploring the island’s coast through horse riding and whenever you feel hungry, just stop at nearby restaurants with horse-friendly gardens or have a picnic wherever you like, delivered right to you.
Visit also Aquarium Cap Blanc to see the octopuses, rays, brightly colored fish and other creatures in their underwater habitat. Get inspired by our entertainment ideas here.
Where to eat
