Free things to do in Ibiza are not hard to come by, you just need to know where to look. That´s why we´d love to share with you some great free activities on Ibiza which can be done alone, with a friend or in family. Some might be very obvious, then again who knows….you might be surprised.
Free things to do in Ibiza
Let´s tale a look at some of the obvious free activities in Ibiza and then we´ll move on to ones you might not be aware of. With no further adue… one of the absalute musts (and probably one of the most obvious free things to do in Ibiza)…
Beaches on the island
It´s comes as no surprise that Ibiza has some of the world´s most spectacular beaches. Who wouldn´t like to sip on a a refresheshing drinks with the soft sand giving way beneath your feet. It´s not hard at all to picture oneself just doing that, so let´s have a look at some of the island´s best beaches which is undoubtetly a must if you´re looking for free things to do on Ibiza.
Let´s have a quick look at two of them…
One of the most iconic beaches in Ibiza, located on the southwest of the municipality of Sant Josep, is Cala d’Hort, the privileged guardian of the island of Es Vedrà, an unmistakable icon of the island.
Cala Conta has it all, namely soft sand to the touch, clear sea (the type you see in postcards), offshore islands, barren rocks and restaurants and so on. This beach is a great choice among locals, tourists and basically anyone looking for great beach in Ibiza.
You can find a list of our top 5 sunsets in Ibiza in our post called – Top 5 Sunsets, or if you are a bit tight for time following are 2 spectacular sunsets on the island.
Sunset Strip, San Antonio
Having a location called “sunset strip” basically sais it all. You´ll find a collection of bars as the sun sets over the horizon each evening with speactacular views accross the mediterranean.
When was the last time your breath got taken away? Let me ask you… What happens when you combine magical, mythical and beautiful alltogether? Well, you get the sunset overlooking Es Vedra.
The sunset is a sight to behold, be it from the cliffs or from higher ground beside the Pirate Tower.
Visit a market
This is more like window shopping. Having a stroll through Ibiza´s markets is a great way to get to know the locals and their culture. One of which is known as the San Juan market that takes place every Sunday throughout the year. Where?
There´s a pretty village called Sant Joan de Labritja in Catalan. You´ll find the market open 10:00 through 15:00 every Sunday
There are plenty of secluded places to explore the underworld beneath the surface of the prestine turquise waters of Ibiza. However, one place stands out for being a must if you are into snorkling. At Cala Conta, just south of San Antonio.
Now, a word of caution as there could be some currents. Other than that, it´s a free activity in Ibiza and a priceless experience if you ask me.
Birdwatching is a relaxing and free activity in Ibiza and is mostly done in pairs. Ibiza is full of exotic birds and some are quite a challenge to spot. So get your binoculours ready and see how many birds you can tic off from this list of birds found in Ibiza.
Here is a list of birds found on the island.
The benefits of walking are obvious, being outdoors and active keeps you energized, healthy and relaxes mentally. It also gives you a chance to get to know the local nature and culture and people. Here is a lovely 100% free activity to do in Ibiza.
Sunday Hippy drumming at Cala Benirras
Another one of the great free things to do in Ibiza is listening to the drums as the sun sets over the horizon. This ritual originated as an anti war rally in 1991 when it attracted hundreds of local people who arrived with their drums to make their message heard. Since then the tradition has continued, first yearly, and now weekly with drummers old and young, new and experienced gathering to drum along in solidarity and to salute the setting sun.
