How to Spend 1 Day in Ibiza
Ibiza has a well-earned reputation as Spain’s party capital, but it also appeals to beach lovers and outdoor adventurers. With only one day on the island, you’ll still have enough time to get a taste of history, nature, and nightlife. Here’s how.
Morning: Around Town
Spend your morning in Ibiza getting your bearings. Depending on your travel style, take a self-guided tour of some of the island’s hidden gems; pedal through the Old Town on a bike tour; soak up the scenery on an off-road Jeep tour; or join a local to see a side of Ibiza that most first-time visitors miss. Consider a private tour that allows you to customize your itinerary so you don’t miss anything on your must-see list.
Afternoon: On the Water
No trip to the Balearic Islands would be complete without spending some time on the water, and this afternoon is your opportunity to do so. See the island from above while parasailing, take a speedboat cruise along the coast, or get active during an afternoon of wakeboarding, flyboarding, or kayaking. The White Isle also boasts many pristine beaches, so you could also soak up the sun on Cala Bassa or Cala Comte.
Night: Party in Ibiza
After the sun goes down, find out why Ibiza is internationally renowned for its nightlife. Kick off your evening with a sunset sail on a catamaran with an open bar and then make your way to one of the island’s clubbing resorts—Playa d’en Bossa, San Antonio, and Ibiza Town are top picks. If you’re visiting in summer, be sure to see which famous DJs are spinning on the island, or for a quieter evening, head to Santa Eulalia on the east coast for dinner and a nightcap.
