Taking a Family Holiday in Ibiza by:Jessica Nielson
Ibiza belongs to the Balearic Islands in Spain. It has a population of approximately 80,000 people. However, be surprise since Ibiza caters millions of tourists every year, indeed very intriguing. Ibiza is swarmed by tourists every year because it is considered as the nightlife paradise of the world. You would exclusively experience a unique blend mixed by famous celebrity DJs that hosts Ibiza's night clubs. However, there are more than nightclubs in Ibiza that a family could enjoy. Aside from these nightclubs, Ibiza also offers magnificent beaches packed with several aquatic sports like snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing.
If you are planning to reach Ibiza from United Kingdom, then probably you would reach Ibiza in about two and a half hours.
If you are out for a family holiday, then it is most likely that you would avoid staying in the center of Ibiza town since night clubs are rampant in the town. You could find nightclubs on every corner of Ibiza so I suggest you would stay outside the town and settle at a resort which is very conducive for family affairs.
To name some popular resorts that I think you should stay in are; Santa Eulalia, Es Cana and Cala Llonga which are situated at the east coast. On the other hand, San Antonio Bay and Cala Vadella can be found on the west coast. These places are suitable for family affairs. From the airport, you can reach the east coast approximately 40 to 50minutes, while it would take you 30 minutes to go to the resorts that are located on the west side. It is ideal to rent a car while you are in Ibiza. However, aside from car rentals, buses and taxies are also available. I would also like to stress that these taxies would only cater 4 people and does not have safety sits for children.
The beaches are the ideal place to venue your family holiday. The water temperature could reach up to 24-27 degrees Celsius making this place ideal for summer getaways. Their water one of the cleanest and most preserve waters in the Mediterranean. In fact, their beaches are awarded by the EEC blue flag denoting safety and cleanliness. The Cala Tarida which is situated near San Antonio Bay grabbed the award. The shallow waters and good lifeguards in Sa Caleta are ideal for families with young children.
There are also parks available in the area which your children would surely love. Playa d'en Bossa, San Antonio Bay and Cala Llonga are the popular sites for children where they could spend their time playing around the park with good security. The area offers climbing frames, and several enclosed places for children to roam around, play and socialize. Aside from these exciting activities that your children would surely enjoy, they also offer mini trains that would make frequent tours of the countryside.
Other activities in Ibiza that you shouldn't miss are; the glass bottomed boats that would let you experience the beauty of Ibiza's rich waters and marine life, a golf experience at a golf course at Roca Llisa, and shopping souvenirs for a remembrance of your stay in the Island. Although I am sure that once you have visited Ibiza, you would surely want to visit the place again and again.
