Ibiza is known worldwide for its peerless day-to-night parties, but did you know that the island also offers an exquisite wild and adventurous side?
We can’t express enough how much this beautiful island has to offer. Music aside, it's truly one of the most naturally stunning places on earth, and here at Gray Area, we believe that no trip to the white isle would be complete without embarking on an adrenaline-fuelled activity.
Let us get into our choice of non-clubbing days out that will create memories you’ll cherish forever.
Get Out On The Water
From jet skiing to parasailing, foil boarding to wakeboarding, the island offers endless opportunities for water-based fun.
You can explore the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean while enjoying the sunshine and topping up your dopamine levels doing something wholesome. With various water sports centers and rental options available, you can try out new activities, or perfect your skills in a favorite sport.
The larger beaches and resorts will have more options, so take a look at Cala Tarida, San Antonio, Santa Eulalia and Playa d’en Bossa, if you’re looking for an fun-filled adrenaline rush!
Explore The Island On Foot And Get Hiking
Ibiza's rugged terrain and stunning coastline offer breathtaking views that are best experienced on foot. There are countless hiking trails available, so you can choose a route that suits any fitness level.
From top to bottom, Ibiza’s hiking trails will take you to places like you’ve never seen before. You can either explore yourself or hire a guide to take you to the best hidden spots.
Discover the abandoned hotel at Cala d’en Serra or make your way down to Atlantis with stunning hiking views of Es Vedra - it doesn’t feel like exercise with those views. Or, park up and create your own hiking trail. Just remember where you parked the car…
Take A Leap Of Faith - Go Cliff Jumping
For the ultimate adrenaline rush, throw yourself off of a cliff and plummet down into the crystal clear waters below. There are many designated spots around the island where it is possible to cliff jump, including Cala Tarida, Punta Galera and Talamanca, but make sure to check the wind and waves on your chosen day.
See The Island From A Different Angle On A Kayak
Explore Ibiza's rugged coastline from a different perspective by kayaking. There are many kayak tour companies, such as Kayak Ibiza, who will take you out and guide you through the waters to secluded coves, dramatic cliff formations and small islands out at sea. You can even take a sunset kayak tour and witness the breathtaking beauty of the island as the sun goes down on another perfect day.
Discover The Island’s Countryside On Horseback
For a unique adventure, go horse riding in Ibiza's countryside. The island offers various horse riding tours that take you through scenic trails and unspoiled Ibiza, for half or whole days. You can explore hidden valleys, olive groves, and pine forests or adventure down to the beach and trot through the waves on a hot summer day.
Experience A Day Of Luxury On Your Own Private Yacht Charter
A boat charter allows you to explore Ibiza’s stunning coastline, discover hidden coves, and visit secluded beaches that can only be accessed by sea.
There are multiple routes you can take, from a day trip to Formentera to a west-coast cove tour followed by watching the infamous sunset from your yacht outside of Mambo and Café del Mar. There are also multiple companies that you can choose to hire from, such as Fancy Boats Ibiza, TerraTours and Smart Charter.
Most private boats in Ibiza have a great sound system, and some can even come with their own set of decks for any budding DJs. With a boat charter in Ibiza, you can create unforgettable memories with your friends while enjoying the island's wild side.
Early riser? Get Your High In A Hot Air Balloon
If you're looking for a unique and breathtaking way to experience the sunrise in Ibiza, why not take a hot air balloon ride? As you ascend, you'll witness the sun gradually illuminating the island's stunning landscape from above. It may be more of a gentle way to start the day, but the rush you’ll feel when the sun bursts through for another day is second to none.
Ibiza offers much more than just partying and beaches. With its stunning natural beauty and diverse landscapes, the island is a paradise for adventure seekers. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and experience Ibiza's wild side!
