The Phoenician settlement at Sa Caleta

Ibiza has a long history, its first settlements date back to the Bronze Age. Phoenicians and Greeks established colonies on the island, as did Carthaginians, Romans and Arabs, creating a rich cultural soil on which the White Isle's current culture is based. Their presence can still be seen today in ruins and castles that dot the coastline. Children will feel like Indiana Jones walking around these ancient remains while learning more about the island's fascinating past.

Discover Ibiza's hidden subterranean world

The island of Ibiza is made of limestone, meaning that the erosion of the sea has created many beautiful caves on its cliffed coast. Discovering the subterranean world of Ibiza, as well as its secret coves and small islets, is a great activity for some quality family time. And if you want to enjoy an even better view, book a boat trip and explore Ibiza's rugged coastline from the sea.
