    The local ferry

    by LittleDee Written Sep 28, 2008

    We caught the local ferry from Cala Pada via Santa Eularia to Ibiza Town. The ferry also stops in a Cala Llonga. The cost of a return ticket is 24 Euros.

    The ferry is an enjoyable way to travel to Ibiza Town. You get to appreciate the coastline and the luxury villas along the way as well as view D'alt Villa from a different angle.

    Ferry from Ibiza town to Talamanca

    by glamourprincess Written Jul 21, 2008

    If you're staying in Talamanca it is close to Ibiza town, but you might find it too far away to take a stroll into town. There is no nice, well-lit street.. you have to maneuver yourself around the marina, taxi stops and parks. The small ferry is therefore an excellent transportation!
    Its 2 euros one way, 3.75 if you buy a return ticket as well (be aware though - we bought return ticket and he ripped them - on our return where he claimed our tickets were used because they were ripped)
    It's a small boat but it was never too crowded (except once when we took the night boat to El Divino) and it's a comfy ride (despite its size) - we were never bothered by waves nor did we get wet.

    At night the boat shuffles between Ibiza town and El Divino (1 AM - 4 AM).

    Ferry from Ibiza town to Playa d'en Bossa

    by glamourprincess Written Jul 11, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many ferries in Ibiza. If you're staying in Playa d'en Bossa there's a small ferry that goes from the marina in Ibiza town and to Playa d'en Bossa. It runs every hour and costs about 3.70 one way I think. It's a great alternative to walking (about 30 minutes) and taxi. The boat runs every day from about 8 am to 01 am.

    Transportation by Boat around the island

    by LizD Written Jul 4, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the easy ways to get around the Island is by boat. Even when we were in Escana and wanted to go to Ibiza town we found it easy to get one boat to Santa Eulalia and then connect straight away to the boat for Ibiza Town which was in the harbour waiting for us. Its not always the quickest form of travel but you also get to see some of the beautiful coast line and the view of the old town is spectacular as you aproach the harbour in Ibiza Town.

    Ferry from mainland Spain

    by C_L_T Written Oct 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to Ibiza from Denia on the mainland with ferry operator Balearia. They offer 2 types of service, the normal ferry and the super fast ferry. Unless you're in a particular hurry you may aswell save some money and get the slower one, it takes about 3hrs and leaves 3 times a day. The price is about 45Euros one way. It wasn't too rough on my crossing in September and they even play the latest blockbuster movie for you to pass the time....in Spanish of course!!

    Ferries to Formentera

    by marcthewriter Written Mar 25, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a few services that run from Ibiza to Formentera, and these varie in price and frequencie. One of the best and cheapest ways is to catch the Glass Bottom Boat that runs from Platja d'en Bossa and calls at Figueretes before making its journey to Formentera. The boat only runs once a day (at around 10am) with a return journey leaving Formentera at 6pm promptly, but it costs around half the price of the ferries from the port in Ibiza Town.

    The boat takes slightly longer to reach the island but has the added benifit of having a glass bottom, ideal for the kids!

    This bohemouth was anchored off the coast from Cafe Del Mar, jet skis were buzzing to and fro all evening. When you arrive on one of these you really know you have arrived, P Diddy was here the month before and he had something similar.

    Puttin` on the style.

    Getting there

    by eVg Updated Nov 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are various ways to plan for your trip and stay. It is of coarse the hardest to get a good hotel for acheaper price from Jun to Sep on the Island itself. You can get there by various ferry services and (obviously) planes. Direct flights to Ibiza Island seem to be more expensive, so as an alternative one can consider to come to Barcelona first, have the benefit of "chilling out" and exploring the city, then take a ferry to the Island. The ride itself would be about 3 hours or so...(from Valencia) and close to 9 hours from Barcelona.

    These are names of ferry services
    Umafisa
    Spain: +34 971 310 201
    Balearia
    Spain: +34 971 314 005
    Trasmediterranea
    Spain: +34 971 316 606
    Iscomar:
    Spain: +34 971 194 490

    Ferries good...Iscomar bad

    by rwaksberg Written Nov 7, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ferries are a great way to travel between the islands, but whatever you do, do NOT use Iscomar on the Ibiza-Mallorca run unless they change the ship. The one I took was not well maintained, emitted nauseous fumes, and was an hour late in both directions!

    Take a wate taxi in Ibiza

    by GypsyBessie Written Oct 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most pleasant and inexpensive ways of getting around Ibiza is by water taxi from one lovely bay to another. When we stayed in San Antonio Bay we used to get a water taxi to the town itself. The cost was, at that time, less than ?2.00 for a single trip but was really enjoyable. From the town itself you could book a boat trip around the island or just along the coast and so on.

    The water taxis were also available at other towns on the island including Ibiza town itself.

    On one occasion we were entertained by a local musician as you can see in the picture. He obviously enjoyed his life on Ibiza very much and probably made his living out of tips from passengers!

    Hire a "Little Boat" to get you there!

    by Geisha_Girl Written Oct 6, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Travel to the party island can be quite comfortable. There are ferry services from all of the nearby ports (including Valencia, Barcelona, Majorca) and the ride is very comfortable and relaxing.

    Take note of that because it may be the few 2 1/2 hours of sleep you may get during your entire stay on Ibiza! ;-)

    Get ready for your 3 hour tour (a 3 hour tour)
