You may just want to settle down by the pool each day and totally relax...but if you want to get out and about around Ibiza then we've plenty of recommendations for you. Here's a sample;
Nice villages to visit are:
Santa Gertrudis, (visit the cafe bar called Musset which is across the square at the back of the church & see the amazing glass floor with a handmade terracotta seabed! Has to be seen to be believed.) http://ibizainside.com/wine-and-dine/restaurants/musset-ibiza.html
San Mateo is situated in a lovely valley you can drive around in a loop.
San Carlos (take tapas at the famous ANITA's bar) http://ibizainside.com/wine-and-dine/bars/bar-anita.html and picturesque San Juan which has a beautiful church.
Santa Agnes (or also known as Sta Ines) is home to Bar Can Cosmi reputed to have the best tortilla on the island (at the side of the church, up some steps). There's also a lovely walk from here to the nearby cliffs where you can enjoy a terrific view...just ask us for more info!
San Agustin is the next village along from San Jose
(on the way to San Antonio) is a quiet sleepy little village with a lovely old church and a defence tower. It also has a nice cafe bar and a super restaurant we always recommend trying called Can Berri Vell...but it's worth a look for the views you get from the church. http://www.canberrivell.com/
San Lorenzo is a tiny village that has a fabulous BBQ area set within woods with a children's play are. It also has a very local bar. You can walk easily from here (past the church) towards....Balafi.
Finally Balafi is THE hidden village. It had no roads to it up to 5 years ago and actually still only has a small track. It took us a couple of goes to find it when we first came to Ibiza. It's very small but very cute...and there's a great walk that can be done that takes in the village. Ask us for more information if you're interested.
Other things to do?
Full Moon drumming at Benirras beach is so popular now it can get quite manic in high summer but it's a spectical that some people thing is worthwhile.
Craft markets are scattered around the island. By far the best one is Las Dalias just outside of San Carlos. They are very choosy about the products sold and most are handmade, unlike the more famous Hippy Market at Es Cana (Wednesday). Unfortunately it's on a Saturday but if you're staying with us for 2 weeks it's a definite must do.
Other than those 2 main ones you can also browse stalls at San Antonio and Ibiza Town each evening and Las Dalias sometimes has evening markets which are worthwhile.
Water sports, paragliding and diving can be experienced from most of the resorts, but if you want recommendations we're happy to help!
Touring the island by car is a nice thing to do and to help you along here's an article we wrote for a website that gives you 4 individual tours to go at. All tours were fully tested, so enjoy!
