The solo traveller’s guide to Ibiza

Ibiza hints & tips

By Miriam Tur Picó, May 10, 2018

Don’t let the idea of travelling alone stop you from coming and enjoying the magic of Ibiza. Whether you’ve decided to come by your own or need some tips while you’re waiting for your friends to come, here is the know-how to exploring the island on your own.

Transport and map

You made it to the airport, now grab a map and make sure you have your goggle map active. Our suggestion is to take a motorbike and discover the island without worrying about parking! You will quickly realise that Ibiza is a beautiful place to observe and explore. There are a lot of amazing markets all around the island and a lot of different activities and attractions to suit every taste.

The charm of the white traditional houses in the middle of the incredible nature is picturesque. The whole island is green, with notes of pines and citrus flowers scenting the air and the scenery offers amazing views of all the beaches across the entire coast with cliffs and turquoise waters.

STOP THE CLOCKS

Remember… ‘Ibiza is what you want it to be’. The best thing of travelling on your own is that it is easier to meet people and you won’t believe it but you actually don’t spend much time alone (unless you want to!). Stop in every corner and take in the beauty of the island. Some hidden gems that won’t cost you a penny are…

  • Es Vedra views- Head to Cala D’hort beach and turn right once you find ‘Es Boldado’ sign… seems an endless path but it actually takes you to the best sightseeing ever!
  • Cala De San Vicente- Up in the hills just before the beach there’s a stunning corner which will take your breath away.
  • Heavens Door Sunset- Located in Santa Agnes de Corona a few steps from the restaurant, turn left until there’s no more land and just enjoy the beauty. Special tip? Bring your picnic basket with you.

Mediterranean style

We are obviously talking about the Spanish gastronomy and it’s many dishes and drinks to try…

WEST BOUND

Mint Lounge: The perfect plan for every afternoon is to come here and watch the magical sunset while having a drink and enjoying the luxurious spot on San Antonio’s famous sunset strip.

Besame Canalla: Stop by for a coffee, a juice or a cocktail, in front of San Antonio’s port. Opening this year, this new place offers a great atmosphere and service.
