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.

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.
