One Day in Barcelona: Three Itineraries + Map

Barcelona in one day itinerary

Striking architecture, delicious food and of course, the beaches, one day in Barcelona is just about enough to enjoy a taster of what the Catalan city has to offer. This 24-hour guide will detail exactly what you should do to get the best out of your Barcelona itinerary, provide advice on how to save time and as always, offer choice! So let’s take a look at the best things to in Barcelona, all year round. 

One Day in Barcelona Itinerary 

Morning – Breakfast, La Rambla, Barcelona Cathedral 

Start your day with breakfast at your accommodation. If that’s not on offer, there are three options we can recommend. 

  • Brunch & Cakes for something sweet and photogenic at Passeig de Joan de Borbo, near Port Vell 
  • Restaurant La Boqueria for something traditional at Carrer de la Boqueria, Raval
  • Señor Pina for something healthy at Carrer de la Boqueria, Raval

The first option is slightly off the itinerary where are the other three are close to our next stop.

Factor a 15-minute walk between Brunch & Cakes and the start of your Barcelona sightseeing. 

Brunch and Cakes Barcelona_

La Rambla

Next, we’re heading to the most popular boulevard in Barcelona, Las Ramblas, but just to walk through it because it’s very touristy and really just a street.

Watch your belongings, pickpockets do operate here. 

Mercado de La Boqueria on La Rambla 

This is a popular covered market with stalls selling sandwiches, empanadas, cheese, meat, snacks and fruit juice. 

→ Time-saving tip: Pick up lunch items to eat in the sun or on the run this afternoon. 

St Joseps Market Barcelona_

Gothic Quarter/Barcelona Cathedral 

Barcelona Cathedral 

You literally can’t miss Barcelona’s Cathedral which pierces the sky with its gothic-style tips and floral design.

Built in the 13th to 15th century, the detail is so intricate it makes your eyes melt trying to focus.

Don’t labour too much time taking it all in because we have a busy schedule ahead. 

Across from the Cathedral is the Architects’ College of Catalonia which, in comparison, is more, let’s politely say, practical looking but what brings it to life is the Picasso mural which is drawn on the stone. 

At Christmas, this is where one of the busiest markets takes place. Read our Barcelona in winter guide for more. 

  • Address: Pla de la Seu

Barcelona Bus Tour 

From the Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter) you can jump on the Barcelona open-top bus which lets you hop on and off at the main Barcelona sightseeing stops such as the Gaudi attractions – La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila and Park Guell.

Plus many more Barcelona points of interest around the city. 

It isn’t just a mode of transport though, the bus also offers panoramic views from the top of the bus and an audio guide.

If you’d prefer to stick to public transport, I will discuss the Barcelona Metro below in the travel advice section. 

Afternoon at Casa Batllo and Casa Mila on Passeig de Gràcia. 

Casa Batllo and Casa Mila are houses (casas) designed by the Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi.

To get here from Barcelona Cathedral take the L3 line from Liceu to Passeig de Gràcia. If you find the time, the walk is around 20 minutes. 

Casa Batllo Gaudi Barcelona

The great news for time-saving is that both casas are both on the same street.

The bad news is they take around 30 to 60 minutes to tour (with audio guide) depending on your interest levels. 

Since you only have a day in Barcelona, I would recommend choosing one or saving a visit to both for the next time you return. 

If you are planning on visiting either, it is advised to book at ’skip the line’ ticket which you can reserve here:

Casa Mila Gaudi in Barcelona_

Late Afternoon at La Sagrada Familia 

Now it is time for the highlight, for some, of today’s itinerary, Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia. 

Did you know that although it was started in 1882 this incredible piece of architecture is still not finished? 

It is hoped that it will be completed by 2026. 

La Sagrada Familia Barcelona Attraction

You have two options for visiting La Sagrada Familia to ensure you get the best out of your visit:

Your first option is to reserve a time to enter.

This means you can choose when you enter and skip the line.

Since you only have a day to see as much as possible, it is advised you do this as Gaudi’s attractions are busy all year round. Book here.

The second option is to join a small group tour with a local leader.

We opted for this as I wanted to hear the stories behind the Sagrada!

The tour lasts for 1.5 hours, the guide speaks to you via audio as to keep the noise levels down and so you can hear.

A red flag comes with the tour guide so you don’t lose them when you are mesmerised by the basilica! Reserve a spot here.

To get here from Passeig de Gràcia take the L5 Metro from Diagonal to La Sagrada Familia.

For other more information, read our guide things to do know about La Sagrada Familia and five ways to buy tickets.

La Sagrada Familia Inside Barcelona

Hotel Ayre’s Rooftop

If you are early for your tour or reserved time, buy drinks at Hotel Ayre’s bar downstairs and take the short elevator ride to the top to enjoy stunning views of Sagrada Familia.

This could be done after your tour if daylight is on your side.

Alternative Afternoon – Park Güell

Parque Güell

If you’d prefer to see Gaudi’s whacky and bright garden then head to Park Güell on Carmel Hill.

Parque Güell is on a mountain so be wary of this if you intend to walk there from a metro station.

Alternatively, there is a free Güell Bus which leaves frequently from Alfons X (L4) metro station.

Park Guell Barcelona Houses

Across the road from the bus stop, there are lovely deli/cafes where you can pick up a bocadillo.

I dream of these Spanish sandwiches, so do try to pick one up during your day in Barcelona so you can experience the soft baguette lunch too. 

You can choose a time slot to enter.

This is the case if you rock up to the park to pay directly or whether you reserve online. Since Güell is popular they have put in measures to control the crowds.

If you don’t want to see the tiled balcony, houses and famous lizard inside the park you can just walk on the outskirts.

You can’t really see anything bar palm trees and touts selling selfie sticks though.

Alternative Afternoon – Montjuïc

Montjuïc is a hill with a lot going on. Firstly, you can ride the Telefèric de Montjuïc cable car one-way or return to Montjuïc Castle.

From here you can walk through the castle ruins with sweeping views of the city and beyond.

Barcelona Montjuic Castle

Secondly, and this is my favourite thing to do in Barcelona after bar hopping, visit Palau Montjuïc.

This huge national palace with its flowing waterfalls is home to the National Art Museum of Catalonia.

Take a snap but save a visit to the gallery for another time.

There is an affordable bus (150) that runs up and down Montjuïc so you don’t have to walk and the closest metro station is Pl. Espanya. 

There is a small outside cafe that sells coffee and bocadillo sandwiches outside of Palau Montjuïc.

Palau Nacional

Evening – El Born Dining

El Born is an energetic area of Barcelona with lots of small streets, cute shops, hip cafes and jumping bars. We ate at El Xampanyet (Carrer de Montcada, 22) which is a tapas bar.

Customers eat sitting down or standing up while chatting and sipping drinks.

El Xampanyet El Born Barcelona

If you’d prefer a sitdown dinner you could try Cap Pep, Bodega La Puntual or Cafes El Magnifico.

Close the night with a bit of bar hopping.

Check out Cactus Gin-Bar and Super Super. Can you find the speakeasy in El Born?

Plaça Reial Barcelona at night with fairy lights

Alternative Evening – Plaça Reial

Dine alfresco at Plaça Reial Barcelona.

Enjoy dinner under an umbrella at one of the many restaurants around this popular square/plaza. 

Then close the night with sangria at Hotel Colon, with views of Barcelona Cathedral from both the balcony and terrace.

Alternative Evening – Flamenco Show

Dine at one of the above but leave room for a fantastic flamenco show. During this one-hour show at the City Hall Theatre, feel the passion and rhythm of Catalan flamenco as the song and dance take over the stage.

The energy, the heat, the talent of flamenco on one stage. Feet stomping, hands clapping, skirts flowing, a perfect end to 24 hours in Barcelona.

Here’s a free map with all of the best things to do in Barcelona.

Getting to Barcelona

El Prat Barcelona Airport (BCN) is the main airport and there is an Aerobus outside of the terminal.

You can buy there or reserve your ticket before here

Getting Around Barcelona 

The metro system is easy to use and stops at all the major Barcelona points of interest.

Stations have clear signs at each station and on the trains.

If you are spending some time in Barcelona I suggest you buy the ten stops ticket for 10 euro (English machines). 

If you plan to use the public transport system a lot, you might want to invest in the Hola BCN card.

Pickpockets operate on the metro so be cautious. 

We had an attempt at theft!

A man jumped up from his seat just as the doors were closing and ‘bumped’ into Craig.

Luckily he was wearing his travel vest and his wallet and phone were zipped away on the inside of the vest.

Barcelona Metro Ticket

As mentioned above, Barcelona has an open-top hop on/off bus which is useful in summer when it is very hot.

My Mum thinks is the best bus tour she’s ever been on and my parents use it in most cities. Reserve here.

Telefèric de Montjuïc cable cars operate in the city too stopping at Castle Montjuïc.

How to get to the Telefèric de Montjuïc

  • Hop on the 150 or 5 bus or L2 or 3 Metro to Paral·lel.
  • You can walk, we did on the way up. It is not for those who get out of breath quickly.
  • Check the website for more details.

Weather in Barcelona 

Barcelona sees the least rainfall in autumn and spring although it never really sees much rainfall throughout the year. Temperatures spike in July and August reaching 30 degrees. The coldest times of the year is January when the average is 13 degrees.

Overtourism in Barcelona

Consider the following so you can enjoy your stay while reducing the impact on the city.

  • Visit in low season, avoid June through to September
  • December is a great time to stay, visit the Christmas markets and enjoy the warm days. Read more here
  • Avoid taking a cruise, the port is said to be one of the most polluted in Europe
  • Book a room in a hotel and not Airbnb*
  • Stay longer than a day, I appreciate that set vacation/holidays dictate this

* We love booking self-contained apartments and have done so all around the world but there are some cities I won’t because of the impact it has on local people. Too many businesses ‘buy to rent’ which forces locals out of their homes and communities.

Final Words

Barcelona in a day is doable and will leave you with a taste for returning! So whether you are swinging by as part of a cruise, hopping off the train on a Euro inter-railing trip or just enjoying a quick stopover, have fun and share your experiences with us in the comments below. When you do plan to return, check out our guides before you go:

Sagrada Familia: 12 Things to Know Before You Go

Sagrada Familia

Top of every Barcelona itinerary, regardless of your religious following, is a trip to the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. This Gaudi ‘builder of God’ sculpture, eccentrically designed with sprawling internal tree-like structures and dreamy stain glass windows is a must-see in Barcelona. Avoid making the most common mistakes by reading our guide on things to do know before you visit La Sagrada Familia.

Don’t miss our 3-day Barcelona itinerary guide and Barcelona in winter guide.

1. Where is Sagrada Familia?

La Sagrada Familia is located at Carrer de Mallorca (401) in Barcelona which is a 40-minute walk from the tourist street, La Rambla and the popular Gothic Quarter.

It does, however, keep good company with many of Barcelona’s top attractions within walking distance.

For example:

  • Casa Mila is a 20-minute walk away
  • Casa Batlló is a 25-minute walk away
  • Park Güell is a 25-minute walk away

Even closer is the lesser-known Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (Carrer de Sant Quintí, 89) which is only 11 minutes walk from Sagrada Familia.

2. How to Get to the Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família is best reached by foot, taking in the Barcelona streets along the way.

If you prefer to use the public transport system, there are two options.

1. Barcelona Metro

The first option is the very easy to use Barcelona Metro. L2 and L5 lines both offer stops close to Sagrada Família.

If you are spending some time in Barcelona I recommend you buy the ten stops ticket for 11 euro. Individual rides cost 2.40. 

You can purchase this at the metro ticket machines which have an English option.

You need your ticket to walk through the barriers.

We actually shared a ten stop ticket over two days and bought another for day three. We walk a lot during city breaks though. 

Barcelona Metro Signs

The lines and the stops they cover are very well documented at each station and on the metro too. 

If you don’t walk as much as us and plan to use the public transport system frequently, you might want to invest in the Hola BCN card.

Barcelona Metro Ticket

2. Bus

A variety of buses – 19, 33, 34, 43, 44, 50 (fast), 51, B20, B24.

The stop is València – Lepant.

From here, you are about 4 minutes walk away.

3. Tourist Bus

Most of the top attractions in Barcelona are featured in the as part of the hop-on/off bus pass including Sagrada Família. 

La Sagrada Familia Jesus on Cross

3. La Sagrada Familia is Open All Year Round

The Church can be enjoyed all year, which is great for those visiting in low seasons to beat the crowds and the heat.

It’s even open on Christmas Day, which is an attractive option for Christians visiting in December.

However, the La Sagrada Familia opening times change with the seasons.

  • November through February: 9 am to 6 pm
  • March and October: 9 am to 7 pm
  • April through September: 9 am to 8 pm
  • 25/26 December, 1/6 January: 9 am to 2 pm
La Sagrada Familia Religious Artwork

4. If you Must Purchase on Arrival…

You can buy an entry ticket at the Basilica but you must buy your ticket 30 minutes before closing or you won’t be granted entry.

Since this is the number one thing to do in Barcelona, it is strongly advised that you book your ticket before you go.

Pre-booking allows you to choose your preferred timeslot by using the dropdown option when you choose your date and hit check availability.

The ticket is sent to your email electronically. 

A review on TripAdvisor recently said that the in-person ticket system is ‘quite difficult’ so ‘plan ahead’. Another member of the forum visited in June and could not reserve tickets as they were sold out for the next five days. 

Don’t delay or you may miss out.

Especially in high season when there are large groups visiting the city.

La Sagrada Familia Text Words

5. Skip the Line at Sagrada Familia

The first mistake visitors make when visiting the Sagrada Familia is not buying a ticket before they arrive.

The second mistake is not opting for a ‘skip the line’ ticket so time is sucked up waiting in line.

It’s really easy to purchase a ticket before you go so there is no need to lose valuable sightseeing time.

For example, reserve your ‘skip the line ticket’ (separate entrance) with a GetYourGuide ‘Original’ tour (hosted by a local 5-star tour guide) or simply purchase an entry ticket in advance and do a self-guided tour. 

Note: All visitors must put their belongings through the security machines and larger items will be held in a cloakroom for you.

6. Audio Tours Are Available

Not only are audio tours available, but they are also recommended.

Even group tours use audio devices so they don’t have to shout at the group visitors.

Learn about the history, Nativity and Passion Facades, the bell towers and Gaudi as a religious architect, as shown through the Sagrada Familia.

You will be in awe of the detail, narrative and variety of materials used.  Look up to see red, black and sand stone, granite, glass and bronze. 

La Sagrada Familia Religious Sculpture_

7. La Sagrada Familia is Peaceful

Regardless of the numbers of tourists that walk through its doors and the busy design that fills every nook and cranny of the building, the Familia is surprisingly peaceful.

Visitors are so stunned by the architectural design and absorbed by their audio guides to think about talking. 

The experience is a really nice contrast to the busy tourist areas like La Rambla. 

Please respect that people visit to pray. If you are lucky you will hear the organ play.

8.  “Works of Antoni Gaudí” and UNESCO World Heritage

Many may already know this but La Sagrada Familia was built, in part, by the architect Antoni Gaudi.

I say ‘in part’ because the design isn’t actually finished yet, more than a century after his death.

It started in 1882 (Gaudi took over in 1883) and is hoped to be completed by 2026.

Sagrada Família was Gaudi’s last project, which he had been working on for the previous twelve years. His tragic death, by trolley car, happened in 1926.

Gaudi is responsible for a variety of landmarks in and near Barcelona, some of which are protected by the UNESCO World Heritage Site stamp.

Gaudi’s other work worth visiting includes:

Parque Güell 

You can visit the outskirts of the park for free which I initially did until I realised you can’t actually see anything.

I then had to book in person at the ticket box, waiting in line for a time slot.

Save time and book online, choosing your own time, before you go. You’ll get an e-ticket sent to your inbox which you just show to the ticket guys. 

There is a free bus which takes you to the metro. 

Park Guell Gaudi Barcelona_

Palacio Güell

This is just off La Rambla so you don’t have to stumble far to see Gaudi in Barcelona! 

Güell Palace Barcelona_

Casa Mila

Casa Mila and Batlló are very close to each other on Passeig de Gràcia which is a long street with fancy shops.

At Christmas, this street has incredible hanging lights on the road. 

Casa Mila Gaudi Barcelona_

Casa Mila has an interesting rooftop with sculptures; it can be hot and bright so remember to wear sun protection and bring shades.

Casa Batlló

Gaudi’s designs are so prominent because he was not restrained by rules, unlike many other architects during the late 19th and 20th centuries.

Casa Batllo Gaudi House Barcelona

9. La Sagrada Familia is not a Cathedral

That doesn’t mean it is not special.

Although often referred to as a church, La Sagrada Familia is actually a Minor Basilica.

It was consecrated, which means ‘declared sacred’ by Pope Benedict XVI. 

The basilica title means the church has been awarded special privileges by the Pope.

People of all faiths are naturally welcome to La Sagrada Familia. There are areas set aside for prayer.

Every Sunday and during holy days of obligation, mass is held by the Archdiocese of Barcelona.

Regardless of religious belief, when visiting you have to dress appropriately, as you would entering any place of worship (no boob tube/belly tops/short skirts/shorts).

There is a beautiful cathedral in Barcelona which you will likely come across.

The Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia Cathedral is located at Pla de la Seu, near La Rambla. During winter, this is where one of the city’s Christmas markets is held. 

Barcelona Cathedral at Night

10. Go Early or Go Late

Gaudi really put a lot of focus on the use of light so morning or late afternoon visits will give you the best chance of catching the sun shining through the stain glass windows.  

This tour starts later in the day to accommodate the light. Just remember to take your outside photos before you go in. 

Alternatively, simply choose your own time slot with the line skip ticket. 

La Sagrada Familia Windows

11. Photography 

It’s actually pretty difficult to get decent shots of the Sagrada with it being a building site and freaking huge!

For individual/couple/group shots there’s a handy cement block across the road from the building. Expect lines to access it.

Burry capture on woman in front of La Sagrada Familia

Hotel Ayre is a great spot if you want to enjoy a drink and take photos of the Familia.

Customers must buy a drink at the downstairs bar before heading up to the lovely rooftop. 

La Sagrada Familia Rooftop Ayre Hotel Barcelona _

12. Sagrada Familia in Winter

Sagrada Familia is open all year round but it gets darker earlier in winter so be prepared to take your photos before entering for a later tour. 

There is a Christmas market just outside of the Sagrada Familia.

It’s not as extensive as the one at Port Vell or La Fira de Santa Llucia (at the Cathedral) but still a nice stroll.

Food is served at the stalls. 

We love Barcelona at Christmas, find out all the reasons why and things to do here.

La Sagrada Familia Night

Art in Barcelona 

Gaudi isn’t the only artist to have his work on display.

I highly recommend you check out the following pieces of art and architecture too.

Final Words

As the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is still under construction, it is an attraction that you can visit time and time again to observe its progress. This is especially true as time draws closer to 2026, will it take the lead as the world’s tallest church as once thought?

How to buy Sagrada Familia tickets

The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia is a gem in the city of Barcelona, making it a top attraction on many European bucket lists. Regardless of what images you’ve seen of the church designed by Antoni Gaudi, they will not compare to visiting it in real life. Unfortunately, everyone wants to see the ‘Builder of God’s’ work too making it a hot spot for time-sucking lines. 

This guide discusses the five best ways to reserve your La Sagrada Familia tickets, ensuring you don’t miss out on this architectural, religious and cultural wonder!

How to Book Tickets to Sagrada Familia

Buy Sagrada Familia On the Day

To purchase your Sagrada Familia ticket on arrival, you just need to enter via the Nativity façade entrance. Last tickets are sold 30 minutes before closing time.

During summer, tickets do sell out. A reader on TripAdvisor could not get a ticket for three days so please do keep this in mind if visiting in high season. 

In honesty, in this day and age of technology, I smugly walk past people lining up to pay on arrival.

Unless you have made a last-minute decision to visit Barcelona, there’s really no need when you have ‘skip the line’ tickets at your disposal.

These tickets save you time meaning you can pack more into your Barcelona itinerary.

  • Pro: Option for last-minute visits
  • Cons: Waiting in line, wastes time, sells out in summer

20 Best Things to do in Ibiza: Clubbing, Cocktails & Cultural Attractions

Light show at Ushuaia in Ibiza

Heading to the white isle and looking for the best things to do in Ibiza (Eivissa)? Whether you are planning to party at the super clubs, bar hop the infamous West End, or enjoy a cultured holiday in the Old Town, this guide shares the Ibiza activities and locations you can’t miss!

An archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, this Balearic island attracts millions of tourists each year.

It is said to have spiritual powers which might explain why visitors return each year!

Let’s find out the best places in Ibiza to add to your itinerary.

Things to do in Ibiza’s San Antonio

There are two main areas on the island where most couples and groups base themselves if they are visiting Ibiza to party – San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa.

San Antonio is situated on the north-central coast of Sant Antoni Bay.

It is the OG location for partying, so it makes sense to start here!

Watch the Sunset in Ibiza

Set aside at least one evening to watch the day slip into night from San Antonio’s Sunset Strip with ambient chill-out music to enhance the experience.

Boat silhouette against sunset in Ibiza

The most famous spot to do this is at Cafe Mambo.

Cafe Mambo (Carrer Vara de Rey, 40) opened in 1994 and was featured in BBC Radio 1’s Ibiza Weekender sessions, where international DJs played while the sun melted into the sea.

Today it is still as popular for revellers taking two hours out of partying to enjoy a slow dinner and drinks accompanied by a mellow soundtrack.

Check when the sun is due to set before making a terrace reservation.

Next door to Cafe Mambo on the Sunset Strip is Café del Mar (Calle Vara de Rey, 27) which was the first bar to open on this promenade in 1980.

It has a huge complex of tables at varying levels, from practically on the beach to elevated for great views.

Architect Lluís Güell envisioned Café del Mar’s stunning interior.

Entrance to Cafe del Mar bar in Ibiza

Next to Café del Mar is Savannah Ibiza (Carrer del General Balanzat, 38), serving an extensive cocktail list and international Asian food with ocean views.

Further up the Sunset Strip is Wiki Woo (Carrer Ponent, 14).

Most of the Sunset Strip bars have a minimum spend of around 70 Euros per person.

If you are on a budget or can’t get booked, there’s a free area to watch the sunset in Ibiza.

Sandwiched between Cafe Mambo and Savannah, join other party goers with their carry-outs on the stony beach.

Remember to pick up your cigarette butts and tins and take them with you after the sunset show.

Even if you’re not clubbing in Ibiza, watching the sunset from one of these bars or the beach area is a must on any Ibiza itinerary.

Sunset Party Cruise

For an up-close sunset experience hop aboard this 3.5-hour party cruise.

During the boozy boat tour, you can expect two drinks, a live DJ, access to the sundeck, and panoramic views of the sun setting over the Mediterranean.

Have Lunch at Ibiza Rocks Bar

Not to be confused with Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Ibiza Rocks Bar (Avinguda del Doctor Fleming, 6) is located on the promenade of Platja de S’Arenal (Beach).

Multiple friends recommended getting food at the bar, especially the chicken pitta, and I can confirm that it is tasty.

A DJ plays at the back of the bar, so it is unobtrusive if you just want to dine and enjoy a few cocktails.

The toilets have an interesting roof so look up as you pee.

Two daiquiris, a chicken pita and a loaded fries cost 37 Euros.

Day Party at Ocean Beach

Affectionately known as ‘O Beach’, Ocean Beach (Carrer des Molí, 12-14) is a popular day party.

Unlike other resort-style clubs (Ibiza Rocks and Ushisha), you can actually go in the pool.

However, you can’t stay at O beach as it isn’t a hotel and lights out is around 10:30pm.

It puts on a series of themed days throughout the week, and the show is a spectacle.

Expect costumed dancers, acrobats, and fizz on your face.

Day tickets are available, but most groups buy packages which include drinks and the use of a sun lounger/bed area.

Bar Hopping at The West End

Not everyone’s cup of tea, San Antonio’s West End is where younger groups bounce about the bars, whilst sucking up Venoms and having fun, or being a nuisance, depending on who you speak to!

Ibiza’s West End features heavily in the 90s TV show, Ibiza Uncovered.

Other Things to do in San Antonio

There are many bars and restaurants to choose from in San Antonio, for example, the beachfront Palapa for salads and cocktails or Gran China, tucked up a back street, for Chinese or Japanese food.

Things to do in Playa D’en Bossa

Those who choose to stay in Platja d’en Bossa describe the area as the place where older party goers stay, many of whom have based themselves in San Antonio before.

However, De’n Bossa is far from quiet with its lively bars and super clubs, Hi (formerly Space) and Ushuaia.

Playa D’en Bossa is the closest area to the airport, with taxi rides costing 10 Euros.


Ushuaia (Ctra. de Platja d’en Bossa, 10,) is a hotel resort and outdoor music venue which hosts international acts such as Calvin Harris and David Guetta.

The nights at Ushuaia are huge; expect 20 minutes to get through the crowds to the toilets and 40 minutes to get drinks at the bar.

It’s very much a festival feel, with fire flashes from the stage and elbows in the eyes in the audience.

If you purchase your ticket online, you can buy a ticket/drinks package for under 200 Euros which lowers the cost of the event.

If you go for the package, collect two drinks at a time or you won’t get to see much of the gig.

Light show at Ushuaia in Ibiza

Our friends stayed at Ushuaia for two weeks and would say that it is one of the best party hotels in Ibiza for couples or groups who want to balance a resort holiday with a couple of party nights.

Since Ushuaia gigs end by midnight, hardcore party people head over the road to Hi to keep the night going.


This Ibiza superclub transformed what was formerly Space and made it a playing ground for Gen Z and those with short attention spans.

Hi (Platja d’en Bossa) consists of two spacious event spaces (the Theatre and the Club), two outdoor terraces, and a toilet with a DJ.

Since there are lots of indoor and outdoor options, unlike Ushuaia, which is shoulder to shoulder crowd, Hi is one of the best places to go in Ibiza if you need a bit of breathing space, which someone in your party will at some point during the night.

Each night there is a different DJ or event.

We went to Glitterbox at HI, and honestly, it was one of the best nights of my life.

Honey Dijon played in the Theater, and Horse Meat Disco took to the decks in the Club, both acts accompanied by professional dancers.

When the club ended, we wandered down to Playa D’en Bossa beach and watched the sunrise.

In Hi, a rum and coke cost 19 Euros, a vodka (Belvedere) and lemonade is 22 Euro, and a bottle of water is 12 Euros – welcome to Ibiza!

For tickets, you can purchase online or look out for the boards detailing prices and buy from the bar that the board is perched up against.

The latter is safe; we did it for Hi.

DC10 (Carretera las salinas) is a club located in an old hangar at the end of a runway.

It is famous for its open roof and its proximity to planes flying overhead.

Partying while planes take off and touch down is one of the Ibiza attractions that people always talk about.

Starting as an underground club in the 90s, DC10 is now one of the most popular clubs in Ibiza.

Mechero Camp

Mechero Camp (Carrer del Fumarell, 2) is a dreamy beach bar on D’en Bossa.

Servers take your order for cocktails as a DJ plays live music.

What’s unique about Mechero Camp is that it has open views of the beach and sea.

You’ll hear the music from MUMAK.

MUMAK Tropical

If you’re looking for a chilled-out spot to catch up on last night’s gossip while enjoying a light and fresh meal, look no further than MUMAK (Carrer de Porreres, 1).

Based on the beach, everything is perfect about this restaurant/bar – the decor, the friendly staff, the cocktails, and the menu.

Everyone rated their meals at our table, and some of the party returned the following days so their partners could have a decent meal too.

All about lining the stomach at our age; eating is not cheating!

One bowl of bang bang chicken and a cocktail costs 29.50 Euros.

Another food rec is Mogambo which is part of Vibra Mogambo Aparthotel from the Hiperion Hotel group.

The Daiquiri at Mogambo was the best-iced one of the holidays; not all Daquiri come as an iced drink in Ibiza, which is wild because we obviously want the brain freeze in that heat!

The food was great, and some of the group returned for breakfast the next day.

Friendly staff, great location, can’t fault it.

Vibra Mogambo Aparthotel looks like a lovely accommodation option in D’en Bossa, just five minutes walk from the beach, and it has an outdoor pool on-site.


Baloo (Carrer de les Begònies, 23) is a Bali-style outdoor cocktail bar.

Some of the seats are rope swings, that kind of vibe, and you can book private spaces in the bamboo teepees.

The toilets are even in keeping with the decor!

DJs play loud sets while customers dine and drink.

I have a receipt for 40 Euros; think I had three cocktails?

It was the last bar on the cocktail crawl with the girls…

Other Places to Eat in D’en Bossa

We had a really tasty breakfast at Big Ben Night where two soft drinks, a full breakfast, and toastie cost 30 Euros.

One coffee, one Irish coffee, an English breakfast and a very milky bowl of muesli cost 24.50 Euros at Dunes.

Dinner at Moorea included two pizzas, water, and a jug of sangria for 58 Euros.

Two pastries, two pizzas, one wine and one beer came to 33 Euros at Emiliano.

Other Clubs in Ibiza

Located between San Antonio and D’en Bossa is Amnesia and Pacha, two of the older superclubs in Ibiza.

You drive past both in a taxi from D’en Bossa to San Antonio so it wouldn’t matter which location you stayed at.

Playa D’en Bossa

A day at D’en Bossa’s beach is one of the most popular Ibiza tourist attractions.

You can rent sunbeds, swim in the sea, and grab lunch or drinks at one of the beach bars that line the shore.

All-Inclusive Boat Trip to Formentera

If you’re looking for things to do in Ibiza aside from clubbing and bar hopping, consider a boat trip to Formentera.

You’ll see this trip advertised all over D’en Bossa.

The cruise includes coffee, pastries, dinner, drinks, access to sun loungers, and two stops for swimming.

On Formentera you can rent a scooter, go shopping at the hippie market, and chill out Ses Illetes beach.

This is one of the more unusual things to do in Ibiza since most people that visit to hit the clubs and sleep until 1pm!

Things to do in Figueretes

Figueretes is an attractive beach area sandwiched between D’en Bossa and the Old Town.

You can easily walk along the promenade to Figueretes from D’en Bossa.

Platja de ses Figueretes

Most people visit this stretch of sand to sunbathe at Figueretes Beach and dine at the restaurants with Med views.

We had an Ibiza coffee at Haddocks but it doesn’t compare to a Canaries coffee which you can read about in our guide to Tenerife.

Things to do in Ibiza Old Town

Ibiza Castle

If you look up from D’en Bossa you will see Ibiza Castle (Zona Castillo) perched on top of the cliff and if you’ve got any stamina left you can walk up that cliff for incredible views of the island and beyond.

Sea view from Ibiza Castle in Spain

The castle building is said to be from the 16th century but there have been ruins found from the 12th and 13th.

The walk up is pretty brutal in the heat so remember to pack water and sunscreen.

Wander The Cobbled Streets

From the castle, you can wander down the tight, charming streets through the Dalt Vila (Old Town).

One street, Calle Conquista, has hand prints from celebs like Penelope Cruise.

Plaza del Sol (Plaça del Sol, 7) and S’escalinata (Carrer Portal Nou) are two restaurants with marina views or there are hundreds of food options around the centre of town.

You can get a taxi from the waterfront, which is what we did to get to San Antonio from the Old Town.

Museum of Contemporary Art of Ibiza (MACE)

Museo de arte Contemporaneo de Ibiza Spain (Zona Dalt Vila, Ronda de Narcis Puget Viñas) is a modern art museum which has been open since 1964.

The permanent collection includes work made on the island in the 1960s.

Ibiza Travel Tips

Accommodation Options

Most people either stay in a villa, an apart hotel, or a resort during their stay in Ibiza.

We stayed at Villa Torres just up from the De’n Bossa strip which was great because we were away from the party noise and could make our own in private!

The villa has a pool, sunbeds, BBQ, outside fridge, and rooms have AC.

Most accommodation options will have additional island taxes so check the small print or ask before booking to get an overall rate to avoid any surprises.

Villa Torres Ibiza's swimming pool


It costs 10 Euros to get from Ibiza Airport to Playa D’en Bossa using an official taxi.

Some private hires will try to rip you off by charging 50 Euros and claim that is the price for an eight seater.

However, we had an eight seater on the way to villa and it was still 10 Euros.

In Ibiza, there are official taxis and pirate taxis.

We never had to use the latter, but friends have in the past and say it is interesting…

A one-way trip from D’en Bossa to San Antonio will cost you around 30 Euros.

Buses run from San Antonio to D’en Bossa for those wanting to go to Ushuaia and Hi.

Staying Safe

Our villa owner advised us not to give personal information like what parties we wanted to go to and how big our group was to pirate taxi drivers or anyone asking on the street as there has been a spate of villa break-ins.

Add your accommodation address and a screenshot of its location from Google Maps to your notes just in case you need to get a taxi home and you are worse for wear.

If you are ‘partying’ in Ibiza, check the Pill Report website and  ask others who have already been out for the season how strong it is.

Drink water! Buy at the supermarket every time you go out and pay the 12 Euros in clubs; it’ll be the best bottle of water you’ve ever had!

Wear sunscreen; don’t be the guy that has to sit in the shade for half of the holiday because they f*cked it on day one.

Speaking of day one, it’s inevitable that you’ll rip the ar*e out of it on the first night, so plan your party itinerary around it.

My friend suggests booking O Beach for the arrival day if you’re confident your flight will take off and get in at a decent time.

Blue sea and historic buildings of Ibiza Old Town


Everyone talks about how expensive Ibiza is.

Sure, if you’re used to Benidorm, you will feel the burn, but if your bank balance is more familiar with city partying, you won’t feel it as much.

We think we spent £1650 between us for six days going to two parties and eating out for two meals each day.

Friends usually spend around £1000-1500 for 5-7 days; it depends on how many parties you plan to attend.

Keep costs down by buying drinks and snacks at the supermarket.

You can’t buy cigarettes at the supermarket, by the way, look for the machines at pubs.

12 Fun Things To Do in Granada On a Budget

Fun Things to do in Granada on a Budget

Granada, the southeastern Spanish city which takes siestas very seriously!

It sits at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, an ideal hideaway on hot days.

While it is not as bustling as Barcelona or Madrid, there are still fun things to do in Granada on a budget.

Its proximity to the coast (Marbella and Malaga) make it a very appealing city beach combo trip.

So let’s take a look at what to do in Granada!

Best Things To Do in Granada

1. Treat Yourself to Tapas in Granada

Without paying for it! Ordering a round of drinks in Granada comes with a plate of tapas.

This plate can be anything from small hamburgers to fish and breadsticks.

One of the limited free things to do in Granada.

Since we were dog sitting in Granada to keep our travel costs down, free tapas were greatly appreciated!

2. Drink Tinto De Verano

Sangria is for tourists, Tinto De Verano is for locals.

The Spanish love this red wine diluted with soda and lemon (above image).

When summers reach highs of 40 degrees, you’ll appreciate this refreshing beverage.

On average, a glass costs €2 and is sold everywhere!

For an alternative, but more expensive drinks, check out Bohemian Jazz Cafe.

This bar just oozes cool with its throwback decor and eclectic soundtrack.

If Granada’s nightlife sounds a little too tame for your style of travel, consider Ibiza instead.

3. Visit Granada Alhambra

Top of everyone’s Granada travel guide bucket list is a visit to the Alhambra.

You can’t miss the palace of Granada, literally.

It overlooks the city from the top of the palace grounds, which makes for a nice nature walk for those on tight a budget.

The fortress was originally built by the Romans but further developed by the Moors.

Palace tours are very popular in Granada. It is advised to get up early to avoid waiting in long lines, especially in the hot sun.

Alternatively, you can skip the line and book a guided tour here before you go with GetYourGuide.

If the above option has sold out (honestly, the Alhambra gets very busy during the summer months), you can try this slightly more expensive ‘line skip’ ticket and tour.

Both tours include a walk through the Generalife Gardens and a local tour guide discussion about the history of the palace.

Tickets are sent instantly, and you don’t have to print them out.

English or Spanish not your first language? No stress, tours are also led in French and Italian.

A visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the #1 thing to do in Granada on Trip Advisor.

» Official Alhambra statement:  “Due to the great demand, advance booking is recommended” – buy your Alhambra tickets here today

4.  People Watch at Plaza Nueva

Plaza Nueva in Granada is a tourist hub of restaurants, ice cream shops, and a meeting point for many of the tours in Granada.

Sip a cerveza and watch the world go by.

5. Walking Tours in Granada

Several companies offer walking (or segway) tours in Granada, but the one I highly recommend is the tour of Sacromonte – the ‘gypsy caves of Granada’.

This 2.5-hour walking tour meets at a central point in Granada and teaches you about the history of Albaicín and Sacromonte.

The local guide also discusses life in the caves dug into the mountain, where some people still live today!

Although the path is sometimes tight, a family with a young baby and pram managed it; massive kudos to them!

You see incredible views of the city, including the Alhambra. Read more below.

6. See Sacromonte, the Famous Cave Houses

Wondering what to see in Granada? Well, see the city from Sacromonte.

For six centuries, immigrants have made their way to Granada and found refuge in the Cerro de San Miguel hills.

Rejecting the norm, these gypsy travellers dug into the mountain and created homes.

In the beginning, there were 1000 cave homes; after one earthquake and two floods, there are now approximately 150 caves, some with solar panel electricity!

The prime location of these caves put these ‘modern gypsy’ homes at stake.

If the men in suits have their way, the Sacromonte gypsy caves will no longer stand, so visit quickly.

Could you live in a cave? Book your tour here.

I highly recommend taking this hike to Sacromonte because you walk through the white houses of the Muslim area, see the best views of Granada, especially the Alhambra, from the top, and get an insight into how the bohemians of Granada live.

There is even a bar!

7. Take a Sip at the Magic Fountain of Youth

Overdosed on the tapas and Tinto?

No stress, the solution lives at the back of the church at the viewing point in Sacromonte – the Fuente del Aceituno. 

Take a sip and let the years fade away…

8. Self-Guided Tour of Granada Cathedral

Granada Cathedral or Catedral de Granada (Plaza de las Pasiegas) is imposing and difficult to miss! 

The dramatic building is 115.40 m long and 65 m wide.

You can take a tour of the masterpiece of the Spanish Renaissance, which includes an audio guide.

9. High Kicks for Granada Flamenco Shows

Beat that city angst away by clicking your fingers along with a flamenco show in Granada!

This dance is partially native to the Andalusia region, and there is a gig for every budget.

Most of Granada’s flamenco shows take place in the Albaycín area.

It is expected that guests are silent during the performance, which consists of dancers and a musician.

Shows can be found as low as $20 and can be booked before you go to ensure you get a seat! 

Choose your preferred time here.

One of the best things to do when it rains in Granada.

See a Flamenco show in Albaycín – Reserve here.

10. Hiking in the Sierra Nevada

A short bus ride from Granada will take you to the scenic town of Monachil.

Monachil is located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, only 8 km from the city of Granada.

There are several hikes along the river which involve crossing a few rickety rope suspension bridges called the Hanging Bridges of Los Cahorros! Take your swimming gear to cool off. One of my favourite places to go in Granada.

If you like hiking, read our day trips from Barcelona for other ideas of Spanish routes.

Monachil has lots of small bars to award yourself with a beer. A personal favourite was La Barberia.

Two beers and one Tinto De Verano were €6, with tapas of course.

  • Bus: 181, 182, 183 bus from Granada to Monachil. Very limited on a Sunday
  • Bus from Granada to Monachil: approx. €2 one way
  • Taxi from Granada to Monachil: approx. €25

11. Dine at Chikito

While Hemingway used Paris for inspiration, Federico García Lorca and the  “El Rinconcillo” lived, drank and dined in Granada, and Chikitos (Plaza del Campillo, Nº9) is one of the locations that the group of writers and poets used to meet.

Today, visitors can dine at this historic restaurant which serves big portions at touristic prices.

Although award-winning, Chikitos receives mixed reviews online.

12. Rooftop Drinks in Granada

Watch the sun set over the city at BHeaven’s rooftop bar (Calle Acera del Darro, 62 ático) or the impressive Alhambra Palace Hotel terrace (Plaza Arquitecto García de Paredes).

Opt for drinks or food. Or both.

Accommodation in Granada

Wondering where to stay in Granada? There is a variety of accommodations to meet every budget.

  • Oh! My Hostel: Small, comfortable yet modern hostel. Everywhere is walkable from here. Dorms only.

Don’t forget your travel insurance – See True Traveller or World Nomads

Transport in Granada

Granada is easily discovered by foot, and, excluding the Alhambra, and Sacromote area is pretty flat.

There is a bus system which operates in Granada and connects the city to the coastal beaches of Malaga (you can then go on to Marbella).

Taxis are also available all over the city.

Getting to Granada

Granada has an airport, but flights are pricier than flying to Malaga.

Buses from Malaga to Granada are very frequent. 

Buses also make the reverse journey.
