There’s More to Ibiza Than Nightlife!

With more and more yachts becoming legal to charter in Spain, start planning your yacht charter Ibiza for a memorable and vibrant summer.

Ibiza old town is stunningly beautiful, having been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO; it is rich in historic and cultural artefacts, with an impressive castle and monastery, as well as several museums. This enclosed town is often holiday maker’s highlight and for good reason; its maze of cobbled streets is perfect for a day exploring.

Atzaro Spa is an open-air Spa offering an array of health and well-being treatments; the spa is in the heart of natural surroundings and is perfect to take a break from the fast pace of Ibiza and its party scene. The spa also includes a fitness area where guests can partake in yoga, meditation and a variety of classes.

For a taste of something different, why not dock right next to the very famous Lio, the glamourous restaurant cabaret on the island. Lio is a new concept of restaurant cabaret serving Japanese cuisine in a generous setting. It’s sure to be an evening full of glitzy entertainment and great food!
