About Family Holidays in Ibiza
Ibiza is an ideal destination for a family holiday.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside, peaceful woods, white sand beaches and crystal blue waters, Ibiza is a fantastic year round outdoor playground for all members of the family - you just need to know where to stay, what activities to do, and where to drop the kids off so that the adults can have a holiday too!
Our guide to family friendly Ibiza features info on where to find family focused accommodation, a dedicated childcare section, the best activities on offer for kids, and plenty of other helpful family oriented advice and tips for a hassle free family holiday!
Accommodation for families
As far as hotels are concerned, something like an all inclusive resort is a great option. Normally they offer an array of facilities specifically for young people and have great swimming pool and playground facilities.
There are also plenty of tour operators and catered villas offer services ranging from inhouse nannies, games/play rooms, cinema rooms, hot tubs, and special needs childcare.

Depending on the age of your child there are a number of childcare options available in Ibiza.
There are also numerous babysitting and nursery facilities available in the area - have a look at our childcare listings page for more information or you can contact the local Tourist Offices for a list of available babysitters. NB There are several municipal crèches in the area but they are generally very Spanish orientated, so we have omitted them here.
Your hotel is likely to provide a great kids club service so that should be your first port of call!
School holiday dates
Planning ahead can help you avoid the crowds, however since you will likely be taking your holidays during the UK school holidays you may not have much choice!
The first term runs from September to December with a two week break (vacaciones escolares) for the Christmas holidays. The spring term starts after the 6 January festival of Epiphany and runs until Easter (either March or April) with an Easter/spring break of two weeks. The third term finishes mid-June for the summer holidays which last 10 to 11 weeks.
Schools are also closed on public holidays when they fall in term time and local religious days and fiestas (holidays vary between the autonomous communities).
School holiday dates are published by schools and local communities.
