Many people will be curious about the best way to see the sights that Ibiza has to offer. Making the most of the time you have on the island is a priority to most, which makes the land train an excellent approach to touring around. Ibiza has no railways, so you are likely to see the land train among the vehicles full of Ibiza’s smiling travellers.
The Ibiza land train operates in two of Ibiza’s most popular resorts; Sant Eulalia and San Antonio. The journey makes for an interesting sightseeing tour complete with commentary. Some of the destinations you pass by will give you an insight into the more ‘tranquilo’ side of the island. The open air carriages wind through the islands lemon, orange and almond groves. With the cool breeze and Mediterranean sun beaming down, prepare yourself for some spectacular views from some of the best vantage points that Ibiza has to offer. Among the valleys, hills and pine-woods; you will be taken on a trip that many people would not think is possible, given the size of the island. On the San Antonio route, entry is even included to the Sa Cova wine tasting.
In San Antonio, you can embark on your journey from opposite the Egg roundabout and the nearby bus station. For Sant Eulalia, the pick up point is the main taxi rank.
