Kayaking in Ibiza is something we have always wanted to try, so when we got the opportunity in April we jumped at the chance to go Kayaking with Kayak Ibiza winter excursion and took to the water to see the white isle from a different perspective.
We arrived at the meeting point of Cala Codolar and joined another 15 other excited kayakers.
Our group was made up of all ages (youngest was our 13yr old, an experienced kayaker), as well as several different nationalities who had travelled from all over the island for this morning of exploring. Read more
On our recent April trip to the island, we took on Paddle Boarding with SUP Paradise Ibiza.
We have been paddle boarding a couple of times before and we love it, it is great for the whole family, easy to master the basics and is a great way to explore the island’s coastline from the sea.
Being April and before the main season Ruben our guide and instructor picked us up in his 4 x 4 from San Antonio and took us to Cala Bassa, which is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Read more

We love the water wipeout course in San Antonio bay. Ocean Mania is great fun for all the family and comes with lots of laughs and inevitably a few splashes or two.
Since its inception in 2014 they have been working hard each year to add and improve the course to make it more fun and a little more challenging.
This year is no exception and they have installed a brand new course, which includes many of the old favourite obstacles, the Iceberg of Doom, Last Push Hill and the Slide of Glory. Read more
Surf Lounge Ibiza is a great place to lose an afternoon or two taking part in the activities on offer or just sitting back and watching from the sidelines.
Situated on the beachfront in San Antonio next to Ocean Beach, it combines a relaxed open air environment with a range of activities, the most impressive of which being Ibiza’s only Flowrider.
The Flowrider is an artificial wave machine which allows you to safely learn how to bodyboard and even surf (tuition is on hand at all times) or for those who are more competent it allows them to ride the wave and show off their skills to the watching crowds. Read more
There are a multitude of “Sunset” boat trips you can take from Ibiza, but for the ultimate in welcoming, relaxing and above all excellent value for money, you cannot beat Chilli Pepper Charters San Antonio Ibiza.
Departing from the waterfront in San Antonio in the late afternoon, they gently sail out of the harbour and around the coast of Ibiza with soft music playing.
The welcome on-board is perfect and being a family run business they cater their trips to their passengers on board, whether it be young groups out for a good time, couples, or family groups with children and can take up to 20 people at a time.
Taking teenagers on holiday is not for the faint-hearted. Unlike younger children where everything is an adventure and the novelty of being able to play on the beach, in the pool or climbing old ruins never grows old, teenagers on the other hand are a little more demanding.
You have to find something that will inspire their minds and give them something to look forward to. Read more
