Walking Ibiza

There is no better way to discover Ibiza than on foot... Taking time out to walk amongst its rugged beauty, climb the rocky terrain and traverse Ibiza's coastline, fringed by crystal clear waters. No matter what fitness level you are, I will find a walk to suit you & your group and be sure Ibiza will amaze and surprise you on route. 180e, up to 8 people inc pick up & drop off.

This is defenitely the best thing I have done on Ibiza. On a crazy busy island, being on the see, going through caves and watching the sunset with the Benirras drums on the background with just a couple of kayaks was magical. Thanks for this great experience! Must do!

Es Vedra

Reviewed By Eva María S

A must if you visit Ibiza. The best view of Es Vedrá is not the one from Cala D'Hort but the one from the road leading to the nearby tower. The sunset there, is poetic.

Dalt Vila

Reviewed By PepLluis17 - Ibiza Town, Spain

Once upon a time Iviça was the first frontier to defend eastern coasts against the enemies of the Spanish crown, ships from otomans, French or English. An impressive wall system was built in the XVI century during the reinassance to protect the old town and its harbour and substitute the middle age walls. They never were taken by enemies and have been kept in the original state up to now. The views to the sea, Formentera and the town worth the visit to the top. The countryside however depended however on the peasants to repel the pirate attacks that shifted to fierce soldiers to avoid their families becoming captives.

Cala Comte

Reviewed By LoveStayingAway

As the title says, it's a perfect little beach out of season in October. A stunning sunset too.
Please make sure you park in the correct car park and don't get a €200 parking ticket like I did and I was lucky, others had there cars towed. Admittedly I'd parked in a motorbike bay, thinking I'd be ok out of season. Wrong.

Castle of Ibiza

Reviewed By Tony36 - Crowborough, United Kingdom

Remember to put on those walking shoes. Many of the winding streets are cobbled. Lots of small shops and attractions to slow you down though. so you can take a breather on the way. If you are lucky enough to get blue skies when you arrive at the castle, you will enjoy another of those views to die for. Coming back down is a treat in store - easy.

Cala Saladeta

Reviewed By Scott L

The main problem with this place is the access, especially if you have a quad bike.
We arrived as a group of four at a gate with a young man managing it. Two of us were on a scooter whilst the other two were on a quad bike. The man told us the quad was not allowed due to insufficient space, and at the same time was turning away cars, we on the scooter would be allowed. Due to this we had to leave the vehicles by the gate, and walk there, this taking 20 minutes.
Whilst we walked there we could see that there was loads of room, for even more cars and especially a quad bike. There was also another young man at another gate before the beach. It is obvious that these two gate operators are inexperienced and have not got a clue. One would think that this would be a positive thing, reducing the number of people at the beach, however this is not the case. A quad bike is the size of 2 motorbikes!
On arrival to the beach I was not too impressed. The right side is very rocky and the water is murky. On the left side there is sand and it is a lot better, however this side is extremely busy.

Santa Eulalia Ferry

Reviewed By Wellsyboyred09 - Dawlish, United Kingdom

This is a handy, though not so cheap service anymore, way of getting around locally. Serving both Es Canar and Ibiza Town (via Cala Llonga). It is however a fun way to get around by going on a boat ride. Watch carefully and ask for destinations when in the port of Santa Eulalia as it's not always obvious as to which ferry is which.

Puig de Missa

Reviewed By Exaptar - Lier, België

Definitely worth a visit if you're staying in the neighborhood. From the town you should take the walk next to the river upstream. It's a small historic and peaceful place. Don't expect to see much more than the church. Views from the top are ok.

Santa Gertrudis

Reviewed By Tripstaker - Carrickfergus Co. Antrim Northern Ireland


What an unexpected joy this was! The hippy culture of 60s Ibiza survives in its northern half and Santa Gertrudis spearheads this with style. It’s a gorgeous place, authentic and well preserved, with beautiful shops, cafes and the inevitable white church. This one has a bronze of the first Archbishop of Ibiza out front - with a mystifying gap in half his chest! The boho influence of the town is clear and something about it brought southern California to mind, but there's nothing time warp about it. These shops are stylish and the merchandise is upmarket. Throw in a bookshop, an auction house and a great restaurant scene for added interest. It's a lovely place and well worth a leisurely visit.
