Ibiza is one of the favorite holiday destinations for thousands of tourists every year, this is largely due to the beauty of its beaches, endless nightlife, variety of cuisine, and a unique culture that is reflected in each of its villages. In recent years, the island has experienced an increase in the number of devotees to our favorite sport. Running in Ibiza is an excellent way to experience all that the island has to offer. Running is becoming more and more popular, with options ranging from single track trails, to running tours in Ibizia, making it an environment suitable for all kinds of runners.
Every day there are more lovers of running, who enjoy training sessions which take them through the streets of Ibiza, Sant Antoni, Santa Eulària and the rest of the towns that make up this island.
Running in Ibiza – Sun, Sand and Sprints
Running in Ibiza is perfect for the active traveller, and we recommend that you take some time to discover the charm that is prevalent in every corner of the island, whether it be in the city, on its beaches or areas further inland, all while practicing your favorite sport. There are both steep climbs for the hardened cross country runner, and long beaches, perfect for intervals and sprints.
The city of Ibiza, the capital of the island, has one of the best preserved medieval walled cities in Europe. Running in the old town of Ibiza (Dalt Vila) is like going back in time through its labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets which eventually lead to the cathedral.
A Run Through Nature – Ses Salinas
Another one of the most charming places to run in Ibiza, is the Ses Salines Natural Park, to the south of the city. Walking along its paths, you can observe the rich fauna that surrounds the exuberant beaches of Ses Cavallet and Ses Salines. Along with the stunning nature, there is also evidence of the old lives of the inhabitants of the area, like the watch towers of es Carregador and ses Portes, or the churches of St Francesc and of Sa Canal.
