We had such a brilliant and fantastic time on this little excursion. It was €70 for three adults and a child but well worth it in my opinion. There was a power cut when we were trying to board and pay but the driver let us on and we paid at the first stop to avoid us missing out.

We left Es Canar (outside Alua Sol) and went through the farmlands and countryside before stopping at a little village and three beaches.

Each stop gives enough time for little look around or a dip in the sea - two of the beaches you got half an hour to explore. My two boys went straight to the sea and me and my husband went to the beach side bars ☺️

It was a really lovely way to see parts of the island which are not ‘touristy’ and which you wouldn’t see unless you had a car and the scenery is beautiful. The train is open which is welcome in the heat, so you get a nice breeze whilst driving around. There is a commentary which tells you about the areas you are in, some of the architecture and native trees etc. This was in three languages and was really informative.

We had a mix of ages, with an 18 year old being one of them. The 18 year old said it was his favourite part of the holiday and I have to agree, it was really beautiful and well worth the three hours and money and I would thoroughly recommend it!

We thought this was just a local train first of all. After reading the information board, we realised it was much more than that.
About 3 hours of travelling around the local beaches and through interesting countryside
There was a commentary in English which was good. Listening to some history of Ibiza helped bring the island alive.
4 stops for a chance to take photos, swim or just have a sit.
It cost 18 euros for an adult and 12 for children

We were very surprised by this tour, it was the best day of our holiday in es canar. The train really picks up some speed, so on a hot day( around 40 degrees!), you get a lovely cool breeze. I think we had four stops. three of them being 30 minutes each and one stop just 10-15 minutes. The whole trip takes around 3 hours and covers around 12 miles. You get to look at some lovely places that you would need a car to check out normally. It is also very well thought out with a trip to a lovely village with church and some stunning beaches. lovely countryside as well.
Definitely take some towels and swim at the last stop Cala De Boix. A stunning small beach with lovely sand and crystal clear waters. You get 30 minutes here. Just time for a 15 minute swim in stunning surroundings and quick change , if you like, or just sit on towels on the train.

Such a relaxing and nice way to spend the afternoon seeing parts of the island you might not see ordinarily (and learning something along the way) once we'd done the beach tour, we soon decided to come back another day to do the more cultural trip.
There were a few crossovers, but on the second time that just gave us a little more reason to explore the surrounding area. In fact, while bumpy in places, you probably got more of a feeling for the island on the journey than you did as the destinations.
The stops in each place are sometimes too quick - especially if you decide to get food or drink, as the service in general on this island is not exactly swift - and while many of the bars and restaurants near the stop off points are more than aware you're on a tour and the "train" driver is probably on commission to bring you to some of these spots, they're not exactly rushing to get you seen to.
But in general, great value for money, and more interesting than drinking on a sun lounger all day.
You don't have to get there too early, but bear in mind it's first come first served, and some times it's busier than others. Pay on the "train" and it leaves from just by the sign advertising the different tours, near the glass bottom boat shack, on the other side of the road from the Alua Soul Hotel

Good way to see different parts of the area. This tour lasts just over 3 hours and cost €20 each. Leaves at 1030 but need to be there about ten as it fills up quickly.

Went into the country to a village with a church and was given time to look about. Then headed off to the beach where we got 40 minutes before heading to a fisherman’s cove then onto another beach.

If you don’t fancy exploring there are bars at every stop.

Informative to learn a bit about the history of ibiza and also see parts you probably wouldn’t u less you hired a car

We went on the morning tour to the church and then 3 beaches. 10 minutes stop at the church was more than enough time. We went to 2 beaches for half hour each and a fishing cove for 20 minutes. Maybe it would be better to spend longer at just one beach as both were down steep hills. As my husband has heart problems we didn't bother with the 2nd one as he'd struggled on the first so spent the time having a drink in the bar at the top.
The commentary was interesting although sometimes lost in the noise of accelerating up hill. It was interesting to see some different parts of the island and worth the 20 euros each.

Great 3 hour trip on the mini train. €20 per person, €10 for children. 3 hours inland to Sant Carles which is lovely, beach stops at Figueritas and Cala Boix and time for a swim. Pour des Leo fishing beach quaint. Day was hot but the train provides a nice breeze as it goes along and respite from the heat.

Really enjoyed travelling through the farmland surrounding Es Canar and learning more about the area. The beach stops were really nice however only criticism would be that longer stops would be better. As soon as you have got off the train and down to the beach, it's time to come back again. Some very nice views and photo opportunities along the way.

Great trip. We took the morning tour. We just were unlucky because we had a big British crowd with lots of children in our wagon and they talked the entire ride. Couldn’t really understand much of the explanations that are given over loudspeakers about the surroundings. But that’s not the trains fault. Stops are long enough to look around and take a swim.

20 euros each ell spent and one of the best days we had. We took the afternoon trip to the church in Santa Euralia with a stop at a beach and Santa Carles. Great educational experience learning about the recent history of Ibiza and the produce. Jaun the driver was also very helpful.
