I’ve been to Ibiza so many times with the girls and I can not believe I had not seen how beautiful Ibiza truly is!
I’d heard of families going to Ibiza with the kids and with all honesty I was baffled and wasn’t quite sure how the kids would survive the loud clubs and the busy life style. But obviously now, I understand it. There are other places to stay other than Playa de Bossa and San An (the partying places).
We headed to Ibiza for just two weeks but we feel like we saw so much of it! Before we got there, I asked you amazing lot for family recommendations and starting googling areas and beach clubs, restaurants and so on. I planned what sort of things we could visit in each area so we didn’t miss out on something that we really wanted to do.
Im not going to give you a total run down of our day to day but Ill give you the most memorable places we visited!!
First play we headed to Cala Llonga, east of the Island, staying in a hotel called Montemar Apartments with a two bed apartment. I think its a 3* hotel, its not luxury but the apartments were decent sizes and clean. It had a full length mirror which is super important to me (even though it sounds shallow saying that lol) and the grounds of the hotel had really nice features and exterior. It also had a pool and a child pool which was great for us!
Whilst there we headed to Amante, a beautiful cliff side/beach view restaurant that was truly breathtaking. The staff were so impeccable with the children which is a total must for me! I always want my children to be welcomed even to the places that are immediately for children. There was colouring for them, children’s menus, mocktails, sofas for them to chill on and it was a super yummy meal! Defiantly recommend the passionfruit cheesecake.
There is not loads going on in the area of Cala llonga, which actually suits us. We like something more chill and less touristy. The beach is beaut although we did spot a lot of jelly fish.
Then we headed to Port D’es Torrent, it was around a 40 minute drive to the West of the Island. We stayed in Torrent Bay intercorp hotel, in a deluxe one bedroom apartment, the decor was nice and then we got upgraded to a Bungalow that i would have booked if I knew it was actually available. The area again is quite quiet but its in very good location for getting to places.
We ate on the beach the first day we got there! It was a resturant called La Talaia Beach Sunset Deeva and it was legit the tastiest meal ever! Also, the setting was amazing and the staff were great too.
Port D’es Torrent is around 10 minutes drive to San An which we was a little worried about but you have nothing to worry about at the Port. Its very family orientated. One evening we drove to a place called Tapas Resturant & Lounge bar near San An and it was so tasty and really well priced. It was a setting that was half outside, half inside and the kids loved it too! Food was awesome.
After our stop over at Port D’es Torrent we headed to Portinatx and we stayed in a place called Sa Vinya hostal Suites Ibiza and had a big room that had a wall division for a living room and the bedroom. It worked really well for us. We had our own kitchen and bathroom too. Cleaning every day and it had super nice views. The beach at Portinatx was legit the best beach we visited. The seas were so clear, there was so many fish but there was no jelly fish. The only thing around Portinatx, you have to drive quite far to get to places, as in food places. There is shops and little places to eat but not dinner places.
One thing I would definitely recommend for Ibiza, is to download the Medusas Ibiza app. We started to check it in the morning if it was a beach day and it would tell you the likelihood oh jelly fish at each beach. Then throughout the day it could change due to users submitting sightings or no sightings and the weather too. It was something we relied on and once we found it found very useful and successful.
Also, if you wanted to hotel hop, I think it’s best to get a car. We found it cheaper to go back to the airport to get the car and dropping it back to the AirPort when we was leaving.
I thought I’d give you a list of beaches we visited:
Cala Llonga: Pedalos, umbrellas and chairs, jelly fish, water was not totally clear
Cala Llenya: Umbrellas and chairs, Jelly fish, lovely woody setting, resturant on the beach, lots of parking
Platja De Santa Eulàlia: Umbrellas and chairs, no Jelly fish, very lovely calm setting, restaurants on beach. Hard to park.
Playa Cala Tarida: Very busy beach!, Very clear water, No jelly fish, lots of restaurants on the beach, lots of steps down to the beach, parking too.
Cala Portinatx: The most beautiful beach ever, Our favourite beach that was really calm! We hired a boat here too.
Amante (Dinner): Lovely cliff top setting. Child friendly with a child’s menu. Definitely go again.
Ibiza Aiyanna (Lunch): They had lovely juices and a lovely low beach setting. Child friendly menu too!
Chiringuito Blue (Lunch): I think this was my favourite place to eat in the day. We had lunch at the table, they do fruit platters and also have a childs menu, colouring etc. Then we hired a day bed on the beach and the kids ate and had more fruit platters.
Cottons beach club (Dinner) : Beautiful views! But food was a let down and they didn’t have a child’s menu so we paid adults prices for their food.
Aubergine Ibiza: The most beautiful setting and even for a wedding! It was outside and it was truly magical. They had live music which the boys loved and the food was totally awesome!
We are hoping to be going back again with the family which should be super fun! I know there are so many more place we want to visit. I hope you’ve found this useful!
Lots of Love
