What To Do Between Parties: Ibiza

We know it can be hard to imagine a time in Ibiza that wouldn’t be better spent partying. Trust us when we say that there’s plenty of champagne and, ahem… other vices to fill your days, but Spring Break is also a great time to explore the rest of the island.  The tourist season isn’t quite in full swing yet, so visitors can enjoy off-season prices in the same great weather that draws millions every summer.

Catch the sunset in Sant Antoni

Sant Antoni de Portmany is a harbor city and nightlife hub on the west coast of Ibiza.  Stoke’s Spring Break Ibiza trip is based in Sant Antoni, so this is a great way to kill a couple hours before the party starts heating up.  Head down to the harbor and have a snack or a couple drinks while enjoying the fantastic sunsets that Sant Antoni is known for.  Be sure to get there early, though.  While Ibiza is much less crowded in spring, don’t expect to find a seat if you show up 10 minutes before the sun goes down.  For a longer excursion, take a hike up to Torre des Savinar (often called the Pirate’s Tower) for unparalleled views of the mysterious Vedra Island that looms off Ibiza’s west coast.

Visit Ibiza’s Old Town

Dalt Vila (Upper Town) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and well worth an afternoon. The historic district features steep streets lined with whitewashed, gothic spanish architecture and huge medieval ramparts.  Take your walking shoes and a few spare hours to explore this maze of hidden gems, world-class restaurants, and stunning views. Be sure to come in through the main gate – Portal de Ses Taules – for the full effect.

Get a delicious authentic meal

One of our favorite things about Spring Break Ibiza is that it’s still technically in the off-season.  Everything on the island jacks prices up in the summer, but in April, things are still priced pretty reasonably. Why not take an evening off the party life, put on a fresh shirt, and enjoy the best meal you’ve had in ages? Mediterranean Spanish food is simple and diverse, with plenty of fresh seafood and fantastic vegetarian options.  For a truly memorable meal, try some spiny blue lobster (a delicious variety rarely found outside the Balearic Islands).

Day trip to formentera

If you somehow find yourself bored with the island of hedonism, try hopping on a ferry for a day trip to Formentera, the island next door to Ibiza.  Formentera is one of the last paradise islands left in the Mediterranean.  It manages to strike a balance between nature conservancy and tourism, and the only way there is by boat from either the mainland or Ibiza.  This keeps Formentera a tranquil slice of heaven, with over 20 km of natural beaches.  Formentera is also a gorgeous place to snorkel because it’s natural geography creates uniquely clean water and allows for an underwater jungle (also a UNESCO site) to grow just off the coast. The ferry only takes half an hour, but Formentera is an easy place to spend an entire day.

Hire a car/scooter and explore

Car/scooter hires are priced very reasonably in the off-season, and can be a great way to explore Ibiza.  Nothing compares with the freedom to explore that having your own transport can provide.  Ibiza is full of nature preserves and beautiful scenery.  Es Broll is a short drive from Sant Antoni, and offers amazing views of a verdant valley dotted with natural pools and agricultural terraces. Sa Talaiassa, in the south of the island, is the highest point in Ibiza, and you can reach the summit by car/scooter or by foot (roughly 5 km round trip).  The Ses Salines Park is a huge nature reserve featuring natural salt marshes and hundreds of species of birds.  Finally, some popular beaches on Ibiza include Cala d’Hort, Cala Saladeta, and Playa Cala Xarraca (a shallow cove popular for snorkeling)

Just remember, there will be plenty of time at Spring Break Ibiza that you don’t remember, so be sure to do something you can tell friends at home about.
