Ibiza may be renowned as being a mecca for clubbers and a top party destination, but that’s not all that this Balearic gem has to offer. Despite being a relatively small island, Ibiza is one of the most popular European destinations for thousands of Brits – even the Prime Minister.
If it’s good enough for the PM
Although you might have wanted to see the Cameron clan sporting fluorescent clubbing gear and hitting infamous nightclubs, such as Pacha, they decided on a more sensible family holiday.
David Cameron took wife Samantha and their three children to Ibiza over the spring bank holiday weekend, to spend some quality time together, away from London. It seems that the most powerful man in UK politics is quite a fan of Ibiza as a family destination, as this isn’t the first time he’s visited. He holidayed in Santa Gertrudis, one of the island’s biggest towns, back in 2011.
So, if Ibiza is good enough for the PM and his family, surely it’s proven itself to be more diverse than simply a party destination. Outside of the club culture, Ibiza is a haven of quaint villages, unspoilt beaches and family-friendly activities.
Plenty of things to see and do
During the day, the capital of the island, Ibiza Town, is a lovely place to visit. The Old Town, or Dalt Vila, is a maze of cobbled streets surrounded by the famous 16th century walls. From the top of the town, you’ll be able to take in some spectacular views across the neighbouring resorts.
In the evening, the city becomes a lively hotspot, with the streets filling with entertainers and markets. So, whether you want to hit the world-famous Pacha or just dine out with the family and soak up the atmosphere, Ibiza Town is a great destination.
If you are travelling with the kids and don’t fancy trying to get to sleep to the sound of techno from the nightclubs, take a look at Santa Eulalia, Cala Llonga, Playa d’en Bossa and Figueretas. These are all Ibiza resorts, but just slightly further away from the hustle and bustle of the city. White and golden sands, crystal blue waters and secluded coves are prominent features of the landscape, so the kids can soak up the sun, take part in watersports or just go swimming in the sea.
If you’re looking for cheap holidays to Ibiza, but are worried about the island’s reputation as a clubbing paradise, you can rest assured that this Balearic Island is the perfect holiday destination for everyone, from young clubbers to families, and even newlyweds.
