Ibiza is a Spanish island in the Mediterranean sea, one of three Balearic islands. Ibiza has become a popular destination for music and nightlife over the years. But it’s also a very scenic and historic island, with a well-preserved Old Town, numerous beaches, and a pretty countryside. There’s great running in Ibiza, owing to the island’s fantastic weather and abundant scenery, including numerous waterfront promenades, unique routes around old salt marshes, and some trail running in the island’s fertile valleys. Thanks to Donna Warren of Running Ibiza for her help with this guide!
Our guide to running in Ibiza includes Ibiza Town and other scenic spots on the island. In Ibiza Town, our ‘runseeing’ tour includes the Dalt Villa, a well-preserved medieval city, plus adjacent neighborhoods and waterfront routes around the port. There are three waterfront promenades in Ibiza Town: Marina/Bofoc, Talanca Beach and Figueritas. There are also nice waterfront routes in Santa Eulalia, and in on the western side of the islandFor unique runs, enjoy paths around salt marshes in Ses Salines, and the fertile valley of es Broll de Buscastell.
Ibiza is not a large island. There are buses in town and between the major villages. For exploring the countryside, a car is needed. Be aware that Ibiza has a very sunny, dry climate and it can be hot and exposed in summer.
