1) Dalt Vila

Dalt Vila is the old part of Ibiza Town (Eivissa in Spanish) and the city’s historical center. It is a beautiful place that can be discovered by zigzagging through the winding streets. The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a reason, and it is well worth exploring. There is no reason to miss this place with the streets lined with cozy bars and beautiful boutiques. And while you’re at it, be sure to visit the elevated plateau called Dalt Vila (near Castell Almudaina). From here, you can see the picturesque Playa d’en Bossa and the city of Ibiza.

2) Formentera

Ibiza’s little sister is on the beautiful island of Formentera. There is a daily ferry service from Ibiza that connects the two islands. It’s a stunningly beautiful island and a great day out. The best advice we can give you is to rent a scooter and explore the island independently. Do you like to dive? Formentera is the place to be.

3) Hippie Market Las Dalias

The Hippie Market Las Dalias is one of the most famous markets in Ibiza and is located in the mega-cute village of Sant Carles de Peralta. This hippie market takes place every Saturday and has since become more than just a hippie market. In addition to fun food stalls, you can also enjoy live music, delicious snacks, and cocktails. The primary purpose of visiting Las Dalias is, of course, to walk around the 200 stalls. Tip: Get there early! The market opens at 10:00, and you can park in the large parking lot for 3,50€. Also, be sure to visit Anita Bar, a restaurant nearby. Here you can sit in the courtyard or along the street and, of course, order some delicious snacks.

6) Cala Llenya

Cala Llenya is a beautiful bay in the northeast of Ibiza. The beautiful sandy beach is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon. The beautiful blue waters are relatively calm and ideal for swimming. Sunbeds and parasols are available for rent at the beach. This is highly recommended during the summer, as the sand gets very hot. There is also a small beach bar. The beach can be accessed from the parking lot using a wooden platform. Because of the popularity of this beach, it gets very crowded, and the parking lot fills up very quickly.
