Ibiza, or Eivissa in Catalan, is considered the party capital of the world, and for good reason — it's home to some of the sickest clubs, with some of the biggest names in house music playing there on the regular. (It was even just announced that Avicii will play the last sets of his career at a club in Ibiza.) You get the picture: Ibiza is renowned for nightlife and partying. But this beautiful island off the coast of Spain has a lot more to offer than its club scene. Whether you need a break from the ragers or staying out until 7 a.m. isn't really your thing, here are 10 other activities you can do when on Ibiza.

Explore by Moped

Ibiza is a pretty hilly destination, and without a car it'll take a lot of walking to get around the island. Instead, rent a moped from Cooltra and explore the towns, beaches and markets by wheel. You might even discover some hidden gems and secret locations.

Watch a Show at Lío Ibiza

via Website


There is nothing else quite like Lío: it's part restaurant, part bar, part live entertainment and part club (and I use the word "club" loosely). It hosts an interactive show featuring singers, dancers, comedians and other performers who treat dinner guests to an evening of raucous fun. It's loud, expensive and definitely worth a visit. The show ends at 11, at which point a DJ takes over for a club (or pre-club) type of party.

Take a Day Trip to Formentera

via Facebook


Formentera is the smallest of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Known for its clear waters and long stretches of beach, it's the most popular day-trip destination from Ibiza  and offers some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Hop a ferry from one of Ibiza's ports for 19 and escape the crowds. This is no desolate island, either; it's full of restaurants, water sports and other activities.

 

Go to the Hippy Market

If you're looking to do some shopping in Ibiza, especially for handmade goods from local artists and vendors, the Hippy Market should be your first (and only) stop. At this aptly named bazaar you'll find clothing, jewelry and artifacts, local drinks, teas, trinkets and other souvenirs.

Av. Punta Arabí, s/n, 07840 Santa Eulalia del Río,

Sip Sangria at Cafe Mambo

via Website


Cafe Mambo is a restaurant-bar located in Sant Antoni de Portmany. It's most famous for being the official pre-party point for Pacha Ibiza, but if you're not looking to rage (because Pacha will definitely have you raging), just spend your night at Mambo. Live music and performances on the beach are lots of fun paired with pitchers of fruity sangria and snacks.

Lose Your Top

When in Spain, do as the Spanish do. If you don't want to wait for a specified ferry departure time and take the half-hour trip to Formentera, there are plenty of beautiful beaches on Ibiza itself for sunbathing and swimming. The long stretches of sand are dotted with locals and vacationers, many sans bathing-suit tops. If you're brave enough, ladies, #freethenipple!

Visit the Sunset Lounge at Edén

via Website


Edén Restaurant is a new dining spot and "sunset lounge" at the Hacienda Na Xamena luxury boutique hotel. It's made up of terraces at various levels so that you can enjoy the spectacular, panoramic sea views. This lounge is glamorous and the views are breathtaking no matter where you sit, colorful cocktail in hand.

Do Fine Dining at Sa Punta

Since Ibiza is an island, it's hard to find bad seafood  and the options for fine-dining restaurants are not limited. If you crave an uber-chic setting and delicious paella, look no further than Sa Punta. The ambience alone is to die for, with a beachfront terrace and chill Mediterranean vibes.

Es Puet de Talamanca, s/n, 07819 Santa Eulalia des Ríu, Ibiza, Spain. +34 971 19 34 24; sapuntaibiza.com

 

Go on a Boat Cruise

via Website


Take a day cruise around Ibiza on a glass-bottom boat and see the island from a different perspective. The cruise will take you along the western coast, and local guides will point out landmarks, myths and fun facts. It's the perfect way to, ahem, sightsea.

Wander Around Old Town

Ibiza's old town, or Dalt Vila, is a dreamy alternative to beaches and ocean views, with cobblestone streets, Gothic architecture, cathedrals and chapels, statues, cannons and courtyards. It's best to explore this treasure trove of history by foot and get lost in the old days of Ibiza.
