In the last few years, the island has become a perfect destination for families and couples looking for a healthy and natural life. If you are thinking of moving to the island because you want to enjoy a more laid-back atmosphere and disconnect from a hectic life, then we invite you to discover how you can live a healthier and happier life in Ibiza.
Ibiza boasts many beautiful farm-to-fork restaurants, healthy cafes, and organic shops. Not to mention that if you are vegetarian or vegan, finding good options to dine out are easier than ever. Thanks to the island’s bohemian roots there is a buzzing culture of alternative and sustainable living – especially in the north of the island.
Here are our 5 favourite cafes & restaurants, they are just a tiny parts of the many good healthy eating spots available on the island:
Wild Beets – Raw, vegan, and plant-based cuisine in the heart of the pretty village of Santa Gertrudis. This little restaurant cafe is a local’s favourite all year round with its mouthwatering raw food dishes.
Passion Cafe – From nutritious breakfasts to healthy lunches, this well-established cafe has now spread all over the island – Santa Eulalia, Marina Botafoch, Platja d’en Bossa, and Sant Josep. Vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic, and exotic recipes are the star dishes on the menus of all its restaurants.
La Paloma – The food served here fits perfectly with the rural atmosphere, as the dishes are made from the finest natural and organic seasonal foods, especially since many of the products come straight from their own gardens. Housed in a lovely ‘casa payesa’ near the tiny heart of San Lorenzo Village, La Paloma is a wonder to enjoy the Ibizan countryside.
Aubergine – The restaurant sits in the heart of the rural side of Ibiza, between Santa Gertrudis and Sant Miquel, in a beautifully restored farmhouse. They use only fresh ingredients from their very own vegetable garden to create delicious natural & organic vegetarian and vegan delights. Each Sunday they host their own organic market, complete with live music and barbecue.
The active scene on the island is buzzing. Many yoga teachers, personal trainers, and active-life lovers, in general, have made Ibiza their permanent home. The beautiful weather means turning the fitness routine into outdoor fun – from swimming, running, horse riding, kayaking, and bicycling to doing yoga or workouts. There are plenty of choices for you and your family, whether you want to sign up for community sports events to meet new friends or simply enjoy getting fit by yourself.
