Skip the plane, because Ibiza is easily accessible by ferry. A car holiday to Ibiza is therefore the perfect plan for next summer. What are the benefits of getting to Ibiza by boat? Read on soon.
Sustainable travel by ferry
Traveling by ferry is a lot more eco-friendly than by plane. Of course you will first have to drive to Spain by car. Are you traveling with 4 passengers? Then the car/boat option is still a lot greener than the trip by plane to Ibiza.
Your holiday starts on the ferry
Do you want to start your holiday peacefully? The ferry to Ibiza fits in with the rise of slow travel: take your time to enjoy your travel. The ferry is also a lot more comfortable than an overcrowded holiday flight; there’s enough personal space and you can stretch your legs. Take a deep breath of fresh air on the deck and let the stress of recent months slide away while you enjoy the beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea. This way you arrive in Ibiza in total relaxation.
Take everything with you: car, luggage, dog…
Don't worry about your luggage, because everything can be taken with you. There is no luggage limit on the ferry like on the plane. You don't have to leave the dog behind either, because your beloved four-legged friend can come along!
