You may not have considered Ibiza for a family holiday before, but the White Isle has another side away from the party scene – one that’s wonderful for families, with miles of glittering coastline, azure waters, gorgeous scenery and plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied. With a super-short flight time of around two and a half hours from the UK, it’s the perfect place for some Mediterranean sun that isn’t mainland Spain.
When it comes to choosing where to stay, brand-new 7Pines on the pretty west coast is a stunning new village-style resort perched on a clifftop amidst a fragrant pine forest, offering spectacular views of the coastline and the spellbinding island of Es Vedra.
With 186 stylish one- and two-bedroom villas (some with private swimming pools), a contemporary wellness spa, shimmering swimming pools and effortlessly chic dining options including the Pershing Terrace and Cone Club, this is a wonderful place for a luxury family in one of the Balearics’ most fashionable new spots. Family services and amenities include babysitting, kids’ welcome gifts and toiletries, and a children’s menu. Meanwhile, the concierge is happy to advise on things to do in Ibiza with kids of all ages. These are some of our favourites:
Visit the hippy markets
These colourful bazaars have been a staple in Ibiza since the 1970s. Head to the likes of Las Dalias or Punta Arabí for handcrafted souvenirs and live music, plus the kids can have a go at crafts and get their faces painted.
Try the nearby water parks
For a fun-filled family day out, zoom down the slides at Aguamar in Playa d’en Bossa or head to Ocean Mania – an inflatable waterpark on the sea in San Antonio.
Take the kids to a beach club
Beach clubs aren’t just for sipping champagne and listening to Balearic beats – you’ll find several dotted along the Ibizan coastline designed with kids in mind, with dedicated areas for drawing, painting, crafts and playing, plus tasty children’s menus.
Sail off on a boat trip
There are plenty of excursions on offer throughout the ports of Ibiza, or 7Pines has its own yacht for guests to charter - the perfect excuse for you to take off for a fabulous family picnic on the nearby island of Formentera.
