Ibiza is a small portion of the Balearic Islands, off the eastern coast of Spain. The tiny island is located in the Mediterranean Sea. I was lucky enough to be able to visit Ibiza for a few days of downtime. My family and I took in the sun, the clear, cool water, and the seafood.
Oh, and also the mojitos.
The part of Ibiza that I stayed at is called Es Canar, and we visited two different beaches and also ventured around the small resort town.
Our first day was spent at Calanova beach, which was stunning and beautiful. There were rocks that rose up out of the shallows and waves were constantly splashing onto them. It made for a few great photos, if I do say so myself.
We also visited the beach at Calamartina, located close to the world-renowned Hippy Market, which takes place every Wednesday. Some of the vendors live at a camping site close to the beach.
I was able to go paddleboarding on a not-so-sunny day in paradise. I loved being able to see the clear water beneath me along with some coral reefs and fish. There were people scuba diving and wind sailing as well.
I had a really great time in Ibiza. Usually, Europeans go to Ibiza to party, and as you drive from the airport, you can tell that there are a lot of clubs that specialize in getting young people drunk and playing loud music. It depends on what part of Ibiza you decide to go to, but the area where I stayed was full of families but also still had some nightlife. It was a nice balance.
