9 Things To Do In Ibiza If You Don't Like Partying

I don't like partying and I've never ever liked clubbing, even when I was at university. I'd love to visit Spain but every time I think of Ibiza, I view it as a party central hub, and that's not what I'd want my experience to be if I was going on a holiday abroad.

The good thing is this: if you would like to visit Ibiza but you don't want to immerse yourself into the clubbing scene, then Ibiza is a place that you shouldn't rule out. There are so many things you can do, places to see and visit, and wonderful hotels to stay at during your time away.

Here are 9 things to do in Ibiza if you really don't like clubbing.

1. Take a day trip to Formentera
Formentera is the smallest of Spain's Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. With its clear blue waters and long sandy beaches, Formentera is the place to explore. It's accessible by ferry and there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied: snorkelling, sailing, water sports and dining out.

2. Visit the Hippy Market
If you are a peace-loving boho and a free spirit at heart with an eye for arts, crafts and handmade items, and you love to shop, then visit the Hippy Market, where you'll find a variety of items such as clothes and jewellery.

3. Dine out and indulge
Visiting Ibiza means that there are a variety of restaurants to pick and choose from. If you love seafood, then you are in luck of course because as Ibiza is an island, many dishes come served with seafood. Best of all, because of the location, dining out in Ibiza means that there is a chance that you will be surrounded by awe-inspiring views of the island, the beaches and the sea. Holidaymakers residing at the Sol House Ibiza and seeking the ultimate culinary experience should dine out at the following restaurants: Jamel's Bistro, Sa Capella, Villa Mercedes and S'embarcador.

4. Go on a tour around the island by boat
Take a boat cruise and go sight-seeing from a different perspective. You'll view various landmarks and points of interest.

5. Stroll along the sandy beaches
This has kind of been mentioned in some of the previous points in this blog post, but it's definitely something you should do while in Ibiza. The Sol House Ibiza Hotel is located near the spectacular beaches of Cala Conta, Cala Bassa and Cala Tarida, which are all a short ferry ride away.

6. Explore the Old Town
Immerse yourself in a bit of Spanish history and culture visiting Ibiza Old Town. Take a walk through and explore the narrow and steep cobbled streets. View the heritage sites, ancient statues, Gothic Catalan buildings, art galleries, cathedrals, chapels, stone courtyards and the Castell de Eivissa.

7. Watch the sunset
Ibiza has the most beautiful and breathtaking and panoramic scenery. Sit back, relax and watch the sun go down at dusk.

8. Take part in activities.
If you are particularly adventurous and you like to get out of your comfort zone, then get involved in activities such as water sports, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing and competitive sports (e.g. golf).

9. Get involved in the local community.
Ibiza may be a tourist destination but it also has a community so get chatting to the locals and get to know them a little bit. You never know - they might be able to provide a wealth a knowledge about the hidden gems of Ibiza!

  1. I'm not really a huger party animal, so these typical holidays are something I try to avoid. However, love the sound of a relaxing holiday in Ibiza. The hippy market sounds like somewhere I'd spent a lot of my time!
