It’s not uncommon to find yourself strapped for time in Spain. There is A LOT of ground to cover. Next thing you know, you’re in Ibiza and you only have a day to explore the island! Don’t worry, we got you covered on the most crucial places to go on your one-day long expedition into Ibiza.
Hippy Market Punta Arabia
The hippy market is common in Ibiza, but Punta Arabia is the oldest and biggest of them all. If you are visiting during the summer, make sure you get there early to beat the crowds. Luckily, the market is within a pine forest, so if you’re feeling hot you can always find some shade for a nice picnic. If a picnic isn’t your style, Punta Arabia has many bars and restaurants you can try. Enjoy the different stalls of art, crafts, fashion, live music and home-made foods.
Dalt Vila, also known as High Town, is the place to go if you are in the mood for an amazing view and a little bit of history. The architecture dates back to the 12th century, including its castle, cathedral and other buildings. Make sure you’re ready for the hike up, comfortable shoes and a bottle of water is highly recommended. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to wander through, and clubs for when it’s time to party through the night!
Playa de Ses Salines
After a long day of shopping and sightseeing, treat yourself to a nice relaxing visit to Playa de Ses Salines. Here you can find salt lakes, beaches, cliffs and rocky coastlines. There is so much to do here, such as snorkeling and boating. If you’re feeling a bit hungry, there are bars and restaurants not too far away! Enjoy the sunrise/sunset or relish in the amazing views atop the terrace at Guarana Beach.
For a smaller beach, Cala Comte is the place to go. Take a swim or even snorkel in the turquoise waters that make this beach a popular attraction. Cala Comte is a beach you want to go to early since it is a popular spot. There aren’t that many parking spaces, so it is recommended that you take the bus or ferry. Also, along Cala Comte are restaurants known for their shellfish. This is the perfect place for relaxation.
Even if you only have one day in Ibiza, be sure to make it count! These are the places you don’t want to overlook on your trip!
