Park your guidebooks and go out and explore the most beautiful spots in Ibiza through the different theme routes proposed by Treasure Hunt Ibiza on a family-friendly treasure hunt. Also, this activity is available in Spanish, English, Italian, German or French.
- Workshops on hierbas ibicencas
One of the original plans in Ibiza that most appeals to lovers of liquors are these workshops where you’re taught to prepare the aromatic and traditional hierbas ibicencas liquor. The local business, Fluxà Ibiza, offers this activity that includes a walk through the botanical gardens on the estate, plant picking, herb tasting, making the liquor and a tasting of Caleta coffee with sweet fritters. Interesting plan, right? These workshops are given three days a week in Spanish, Dutch, French, English or German.
- Workshop on Craft Beer
For this activity, the craft brewery Ibosim will teach you how to make your own beer and it’s available from October to March in Spanish, Catalan, Italian or English. If your visit does not coincide with those dates, you can always go for a guided tour and see how beer is made in the only craft brewery in Ibiza. The tour includes the tasting of 6 aromatic beers with 6 tapas.
- Ibiza’s traditional food
If you’ve already tried the flaó and you’d like to make it at home, join the Ibizan cooking classes organised by the organic farm Can Musson, only 9 kilometres away from Hotel Ánfora. You can also learn to make Ibiza’s typical artisan bread and coca (flatbread with toppings), goats cheese and the hierbas ibicencas liquor.
- Different handicrafts for different interests
The Handicraft Centre of Sa Pedrera is in the city of Ibiza and offers several handicraft workshops during the summer (some of them in the winter too). Depending on your interests, you can learn how to make macramé, paint fans and other objects with material, make clay jewellery, silversmithing techniques, decorate wood, fire-glaze metal, work on leather... The activities are taught in several languages and you can find all the details on the Ibiza Creativa website.

A good number of ideal and original plans in Ibiza for the most creative travellers.
