Bicycle and mountain bike tours in Ibiza: choose your level of difficulty

The unspoiled nature and year-round mild temperatures are the ideal conditions for extensive bike and mountain bike tours in Ibiza. The island has 20 signposted routes - so whether you prefer an adventurous tour in the hilly interior or a slightly less demanding route along the coast is up to you. To help you decide which bike route to take, the difficulty levels are marked using different colours: 

  • easy routes (green) with a duration of 1-2 hours, easy gradient
  • medium routes (blue) with slight slopes and an average duration of 4 hours
  • medium routes (red) with pronounced differences in altitude
  • difficult routes (black) - physically very challenging, recommended only for experienced cyclists

Whether it's a sporting challenge or a relaxing excursion into nature, an extensive tour by bike or mountain bike is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the incomparable landscape of Ibiza around your new property.

Discover the unspoiled island nature on a hike in Ibiza 

Ibiza's stunning coastline, with its hidden coves, steep cliffs and breathtaking views, attracts nature-loving hikers year after year. Like the bike routes, Ibiza's hiking trails are divided into different levels of difficulty: So you are guaranteed to find a hiking route that suits your fitness level. Many secluded beaches, coves and other oases of tranquillity can only be reached on foot - so a hike on the beautiful Balearic island is also a voyage of discovery to largely unknown places. The real estate agents of Engel & Völkers particularly recommend the hiking route to the "Torre d'es Savinar", a former watchtower in San José. The way here is a little demanding and requires sturdy shoes, but the effort pays off: The view you can enjoy from the "Torre d'es Savinar" to the islands Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. 

In the idyllic surroundings of San José, Engel & Völkers markets spacious fincas and elegant villas in Mediterranean surroundings. Take a look at our current offer!

Explore rare marine life while diving and snorkelling in Ibiza

The mysterious rocky coves and pleasantly warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea are perfect for discovering Ibiza's underwater world while diving or snorkelling. Due to the special seagrass Posidonia oceanica, which has a filtering function, the water around the Mediterranean island is also considered particularly clear. The "lungs of the Mediterranean" give you a unique view of rare octopus, impressive groupers and large schools of barracuda fish. An insider tip for your next diving or snorkeling trip in Ibiza is the bay of Cala Xaracca. This is somewhat hidden in the small town of Portinatx, and with its low visitor traffic, is the ideal place for a sea discovery trip that you can take not far from your new villa or apartment.

Climb Ibiza's cliffs on a rock climbing tour around your new property 

A popular outdoor activity for Ibiza's adventurous residents is rock climbing. Even though the island isn't very large at 40 kilometers long, it has around 600 climbing routes in 20 climbing areas. If you are looking for a sporting challenge and want to enjoy fantastic views of the island, a climbing trip in Ibiza is just what you need. Moreover, on some climbing routes you can discover hidden places of the island that you can't reach on ordinary hiking trails. Next to San Miguel is the 140-meter high cliff Cap Creu, which is a popular destination for experienced climbers: here you will first have to abseil in two stages to then reach the top in one of the eight available routes. 

With Ibiza's numerous outdoor activities, you have the opportunity to get to know the dreamlike island in a very special way, away from the dynamic party and gastronomy scene. Not only will you be able to enjoy sports - there will also be moments of tranquility and marveling at the beautiful nature.
