By the time your cruise ship reaches the port of Ibiza, it’s likely you’ll have heard of Ibiza’s beach-all-day, party-all-night reputation, but a look at the available Ibiza shore excursions will convince you that there’s much more to this gorgeous island.
Ibiza is located between the Mediterranean Sea and the Balearic Sea, off the coast of Spain, and that geographic positioning ensures clear blue waters, super sunny days, and warm balmy nights for lucky Mediterranean cruise passengers.
Give yourself an opportunity to enjoy those super sunny days exploring Ibiza’s natural beauty and spectacular scenery on one of the Ibiza cruise tours that takes you around the island off-road-style in a four-wheel drive vehicle where you’ll visit the island’s most impressive sights from bottom to top. Visit Sa Caleta, Phoenician port; catch panoramic views from the island’s highest point, Sa Talaia, then descend to the beaches at Cala Comte. There are also bike and walking tours that cover the island’s most popular sights, from old forts to salt flats at the beach. For another kind of exploring, take an eye-opening tour of the Cave of Can Marҫa a limestone cavern at Port San Miguel. Once a smugglers’ storehouse, today it’s one of must-see attractions as much for its cool, damp interior, as for its stalagmites and stalactites that over time have morphed into temples and interesting figure shapes, including one that resembles a rocket.
When booking Ibiza shore excursions you can go from taking a cave tour to taking it easy on an indulgent trip to a family-owned winery for a wine and cheese tasting, to sipping a drink while watching a spectacular sunset at the waterfront esplanade at San Antonio.
Wear your walking shoes for a tour of Dalt Vila and enjoy the hilly beauty and views from this charming, walled, upper town that was built by the Phoenicians. Wander through the castle, the cathedral and churches before stopping for a well-deserved break at one of the welcoming cafes. If you’re up for some shopping, take an excursion to a “hippy market,” in Es Canar selling crafts, local products, drinks, and souvenirs.
And, if you simply can’t resist the beach – and why should you – you can book Ibiza shore excursions to Cala Conta, a popular beach at the western tip of the island, or to the lively white-sand beach with boardwalk at Ses Salines, at the southern end of the island.
