The Best family hotels on Ibiza

With plenty of direct flights - average flight times of between two and three hours from the UK - reliable sunny weather between May and October, and dozens of sandy beaches and pretty bays, Ibiza makes a good family-holiday choice. The main resorts are round Ibiza Town, San Antonio, Playa d’en Bossa, Cala de San Vincent, Santa Eulalia and Portinatx; the latter two make particularly good choices for families as they offer well-developed resorts but with a more relaxed atmosphere and without Ibiza’s famously frenetic nightlife. Our pick of the best family hotels on Ibiza will make your decision that much easier!

Ibiza is also a good choice if you have an active family, with many beaches offering watersports, volleyball, snorkelling and diving. The seas are safe, clear and warm - the sea-bed in the Las Salinas national park is a World Heritage site, so an excellent area for diving - with the east coast being the best option for a spot of surfing.

Aguamar Water Park, with its various slides, pools and playgrounds, in Playa d’en Bossa will be a hit with younger children while all the family will enjoy the views from Portinatx lighthouse: Mallorca is visible on clear days. And you should set aside a day to take a boat-trip to Formentera a couple of miles to the south, with its superb beaches and salt-pan nature reserve.

As it is a popular island, particularly in school holidays, book well ahead to ensure you guarantee a room in one of Ibiza's best family hotels.
