To summarize, these are our advice when visiting the beaches of Ibiza:
- Enjoy the outdoors early in the morning.
- Leave the car farther away from the beach and waters.
- Walk everywhere!
- Take a cooler provided with refreshments for the day, as not all beaches have bar services. In some places citizens will pass along all day selling melon, watermelon and mojitos which is appreciated. Although, having your own little cooler would be very helpful.
