Probably the most famous island in the Mediterranean, Ibiza receives visitors from all over the world. Situated some kilometres off the eastern coast of mainland Spain, Ibiza is the 3rd largest of the Balearic Islands. Now a major tourist destination, the island offers visitors an excellent mix of sun kissed beaches, turquoise seas, historical villages and party towns. The town of San Antonio receives the highest amount of visitors and is home to some of the best known nightclubs in the world.

Entire songs have been written about the pulsing party scene in Ibiza, with its hedonistic feel, string bikinis, and glamorous celebrity spottings. And while this is all true—you'll find supermodels and internationally renowned DJs spinning on the most popular beaches—there are enough beaches on the Spanish island that it is still possible to find respite from the crowds and beats. Many of Ibiza's beaches have powder soft sand, gentle slopes, and shallow water, making it ideal for those who just want to wade in the water, or younger kids who want to float and splash around instead of swimming the entire time. And the places that are closer to resort towns, such as Cala Bassa, have all the amenities you could need—shops, restaurants, clean restrooms, sunbeds, shaded areas, and more—to keep entire families entertained. There's plenty to love for adventure seekers, too.
