Sightseeing in Ibiza
When you fly to Ibiza you can take your pick from more than 50 beaches and secluded coves, all with soft golden sand and crystal clear waters which lap the shores. After a day soaking up the sun why not let your hair down in one of the many bars, dance the night away in a club or simply sample the local cuisine at one of many restaurants.
Ibiza Castle is a must see, this ancient building is built up a steep slope and is always a popular destination with tourists to the island. Inside, the castle is full of cobbled streets which have plenty of interesting shops, great for finding souvenirs and presents to bring back. Cafes provide a retreat for when you want to relax with a drink or snack.
The beaches offer plenty to do for everyone including watersports such as banana boats and jetskiing for the more daring holidaymaker. A more relaxing day can be spent under the sea exploring the beautiful warm clear waters snorkelling or scuba diving. If you fancy exploring a little further afield then why not jump on one of the many boat trips running to nearby towns and beaches?
