This tour truly maximizes your opportunity to discover the history, mystery and beauty of Ibiza by traveling to several key destinations on the Island.
Your day begins with a coach ride to Las Salinas where you will stop to view the salt flats. The salt industry was one of the first on the island and depending on the season, the salt flats are also a great place for bird watching, especially Flamingos. Passing through Sa Caleta, which offers up great panoramic views, your journey continues on toward the town of San Jose.
The town of San Jose is located high in the hills and is the largest municipality on the island. Far from the hustle and bustle of Ibiza's resort areas, the town embraces a more tranquil ambience and offers visitors a peaceful respite. Still, the town has wonderful eateries, shops and a memorable 14th century Parish church (interior visits may not be possible). There will be free time here to explore on your own or simply find a shady spot to sit and relax, appreciating the un-hurried charm of this village.
From San Jose, you will next travel to San Antonio, one of the most popular and well-known resorts in the Mediterranean, that offers an incredible diversity of entertainment. The city is dominated by the beautiful palm-lined promenade which skirts the harbor, constantly busy with yachts, speedboats and ferryboats. The harbor, called Portus Magnus by the Romans, is one of the most beautiful and famous natural harbors in Europe. Enjoy free time here to walk around before making your way to your next stop.
Leaving San Antonio behind, you will next head out to the countryside for a complete contrast in atmosphere, passing though the little port town of San Miguel. Arriving in Portinatx, you will be treated to lunch at a local restaurant and then have free time to wander around the shops or enjoy time on the beach.
Re-joining your coach, your journey resumes with a drive through countryside to San Carlos where a photo stop is scheduled. From here, it's on to Santa Eulalia, which has a long-established reputation as the Island's gastronomic and cultural center. Your first stop here will be at Puig de Missa, a hill situated in the middle of town that was declared a site of scenic beauty by the Ministry of Culture in 1952. Next, you will visit the church of Santa Eulalia, which was built in the 16th century. Free time is included to explore Santa Eulalia on your own, discovering its art galleries, fashionable shops and exclusive yacht marina.
Your full day spent discovering the many facets of Ibiza concludes with a drive back to Ibiza where you will have a bit of free time before transferring back to the pier and your awaiting Oceania ship.
