Top ten reasons why Ibiza is the must visit destination for 2021

15 February 21

Ibiza is an island thriving in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. The iconic European centre point of celebration with luxury Ibiza holidays famous for their hedonistic reputation, it’s the fun little sister of the Balearic Islands, uniting visitors year on year.  

Whilst we recover from the pandemic and resume our travels, this lively persona will have to lay low a little longer. However, there’s no need to be disappointed as this will allow other elements to step into the spotlight and receive the attention they deserve…

 

Read on for our top ten reasons why Ibiza is the must visit destination for 2021.  

Outdoor pursuits
Following a year of being couped up indoors, Ibiza’s line up of outdoor pursuits will enable us to reconnect with the outdoors and feel empowered with a newfound sense of freedom. With self-care and mental wellbeing at the forefront of our minds, we’ll want to step away from our screens and go hiking, running, swimming, yachting, kayaking and mountain biking. If this is on your agenda, you’ll be pleased to know all of these (and more) can be enjoyed across Ibiza this year.

Secure, secluded and safe family escapes

Whether it’s a pearly white ocean front property, or a charming traditional Spanish farmhouse - Ibiza is awash with villas to reconnect family members after a year of separation. Reunion travel will be a priority for many, and Ibiza’s villas offer something for everyone and are safe, secure and secluded. Tick, tick tick!

Cultural discoveries

Having remained at home for the most part of the last 12 months, we’re keen to absorb our senses with the newfound novelty of other cultures. From the historic Ibiza Old Town and its 13th century Roman Catholic Church - Catedral de Santa María, the island also showcases the creativity and talent of the locals who host numerous craft and food markets each week.

Yacht charter central

Ibiza is home to a collection of leading yacht charter companies which allow you the luxury to explore the island’s cerulean coastline and neighbouring, sandy sister island of Formentera at ease. Led by their expertise of the destination, experience in style Ibiza from a completely new perspective. You might even meet the odd dolphin on your way!

Spectacular sunsets  

Ibiza’s northern and westerly coastline is famed for its brightly hued sunsets displaying warm blends of orange, pink and red. The uninhabited rocky island of Es Vedra, just off the Ibizan coastline is one of the most iconic sunset spots - drawing people to witness the island’s most beautiful natural showcase, hosted by mother nature herself.

Flavourful food and drink

A strong food and drink scene thrives across the island with local recipes that have been passed down through the generations. With dishes made using fresh fish and organic meats with local herbs and spices, Ibiza’s cuisine champions Balearic flavours. Two examples include the pork sobrasada sausage and hierbas ibicencas the Ibizan herb drink.

A holistic haven

Ibiza welcomes visitors to try new activities that boost personal mindfulness and wellbeing. This includes many forms of meditation and yoga led by those who call the island home, for welcomed moments of escapism that connect the body and soul.  

Wonderous wildlife 

Look a little closer and you will see that Ibiza is an oasis for wildlife, and since its break from tourism over the last year, its abundance is flourishing. Two hotspots include the verdant Es Amunts park, whilst Ses Feixes is one of the last remaining natural wetlands in the Mediterranean and is recognised by UNESCO.

Beautiful beaches

From blue water bays to cosy coves, Ibiza has a distinct variety of shorelines. From Sol D’en Serra and its secluded stretch of shingles, to the snorkelling hotspot of Cala Xarraca’s underwater world, each beach illustrates the island’s contrasting personas: from the boom of the beach clubs, to the lesser-known bohemian barefoot bays. 

Easily accessible

And lastly, as we dip our toes back into international travel this year, Ibiza is a friendly destination that is easily accessible with quick and direct flights and ferry routes from many parts of Europe. Just a one-hour flight from Barcelona, a little longer from Paris and under two hours from London, you’ll be assured in knowing that your journey will be a swift one!
