8 day cycling holiday Ibiza and Formentera

Ibiza: a cycling paradise

Ibiza is famous all over the world for the lively nightlife in Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni de Portmany but still it remains the big unknown. Ibiza is one of the Balearic Islands, an archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, and is a hidden cycling paradise. The island offers, besides the secluded beaches, authentic villages with white plastered houses and churches and a labyrinth of deserted small roads and lots of fruit trees. The locals are very friendly and there is a relaxed atmosphere. Especially in the north of the island you imagine yourself in a true cycling paradise!

The nature of the routes

During this tour you cycle on tarmac roads with little traffic. Stunning nature, orchards and authentic villages will be on your menu this holiday. It is a mix of flattish roads and rolling hills which are not steep and easy to overcome. All routes starts and ends outside the hotel in Eulària des Riu in a range of 40-60 km.

Blooming almond trees

Ibiza also acts as a magnet for artists from all over the world. Temperatures are very mild early season. In spring the countryside turns white through the blooming almond trees and the large variety of wild flowers.

Endless sandy beaches on Formentera

Formentera is the smallest inhabited island of the Balearic Islands. You can take your bike on the ferry from Eulària des Riu (and Ibiza Town) to Formentera. From May to October several companies offering many sailings per day. Formentera is ideal for exploring by bike and is known for its endless sandy beaches and some of them belongs to the most beautiful ones in the world.

  1. We needed it. Cycling in the sun. Leave the winter behind us, welcome the spring. and vitamins. This succeeded excellent during an eight day stay in Ibiza. In a pleasant touring company of other cyclists. Daily tours planned and supervised by Raymond and Rob of Eye4cycling. On rest day without a program, we took, with two other cycling friends, the opportunity to visit the Salt lakes south of the capital town Ibiza. Ibiza was very green, more than normal, because of the many rains this year. Away from the big hotels on the coast, we cycled over good and quiet roads through a pleasant countryside. Nice breaks in small white villages. Raymond had found nice places to drink and eat something. The tourist season was clearly still on the start. That made it extra peacefully. We thought it was a quiet idea that the dancing’s had not opened their gates yet. Against a blue sky especially the white churches protrude nicely. The serene simplicity of the churches charmed me. Finally we ate delicious. And in any case enjoyed after every performance of delicious ice creams. In Santa Eulària des Riu, our home town, the choice and competition between at least four ice-cream parlors was great.
