Ibiza in 48 hours

The increase in flights between Ibiza and many other national and international airports has turned this island into a very attractive destination for a weekend getaway. If you only have 48 hours to discover Ibiza for the very first time and you’d like to make the most of your stay, check out the following plan that was specially thought out for travellers who wish to visit the island.

 Day 1 - Western part of Ibiza

- 9:30 am. After breakfast and before going to the beach, visit San Antonio church that is a remarkable example of a fortified church on the island.

- 10:30 am. Board our boat and head towards Cala Conta, one of the most beautiful and famous beaches in Ibiza. For lunch, treat yourself to one of the delicious rice dishes served at S’Illa des Bosc.

- 3:45 pm. Board the boat that goes back to San Antonio but get off at Cala Bassa (enquire about this when you buy your ticket), another breathtaking cove on the island. At 6:00 pm, head back to San Antonio on the last boat.

- 7:30 pm. Change into your evening clothes for a stroll along the San Antonio Promenade: it is nearly 3 kilometres long and surrounds most of the village’s charming bay. You can admire the famous sunset at San Antonio from one of its popular cafes, Café del Mar and Café Mambo.

- 9:00 pm. Try Ibiza’s traditional food at Es Rebots de Can Prats, a quiet restaurant only two blocks away from San Antonio church.
