12 Top-Rated Family Resorts in Ibiza
The resort island of Ibiza may be best known for techno music and dancing, but it's also filled with a lot of great family resorts and fun things to do with kids. Ibiza is one of the Balearic Islands, a group of four mainly resort islands in the Mediterranean Sea, about 160 kilometers off the coast of Spain.
Ibiza Town (or simply Vila) is main city on Ibiza, located on the south part of the island. Other major resort areas (each with their own beaches) include Portinatx in the north, San Antonio in the west, and Santa Eulalia in the east.
Families visiting Ibiza can choose from a wide range of accommodations, from apartment-like condo units to luxury beach resorts. Many offer separate adult sections and adult pools to provide a bit of peace to guests without children (and parents who need a break).
Ibiza is a good family destination, as it has lots of beautiful beaches and fun ocean-related activities, along with miles of hiking trails for exploring other parts of the island. Many hotels are kid-friendly, with special amenities and programs just for youngsters.
