Free days out


From San Antonio, head north along the rocks until you reach Cala Gracio and Cala Gracioneta. March on for 45 minutes to Punta Galera, where you'll find a weird formation of stone plateaus. The next point of call is Cala Salada (pictured above) – arguably the best beach on the island.

Dalt Vila and Ibiza Old Town (pictured below)

Feeling cultured? Head to the medieval fortress of Dalt Vila and explore the cobbled labyrinth of streets, chapels and courtyards. Check out the views of the harbour, then head back down to the chic Old Town for a spot of window shopping.

Sant Bartomeu Festival

This week-long festival, held in San Antonio in September, culminates with a huge tomato fight on the beach. You can buy handmade craft at the local market and there are sporting events out on the water.


Jump on the No 4 bus from San Antonio to Cala Conta and explore the glorious turquoise waters and rocky coves with your trusty snorkel. Take a picnic for lunch and then watch the sunset at the famous Sunset Ashram beach bar.

AVOID: Handing over half your spending money to a travel rep for a program of rubbish, booze cruise-style excursions, half of which you won't be up in time for anyway.
