I have vague memories of a family holiday to the island before I’d even hit 10, we’d stayed in an all-inclusive, and I remember very little than being grumpy over sunburn and being forced into a children’s club that was 5 years below my age. 20 or so years later, I find myself laid on a bed somewhere in Sant Jose drinking champagne under the sun with friends celebrating their consecutive 30th’s after a night in Space. From club hopping and parties on the beach, through to hunting for jewels in Ibiza Old Town and yoga retreats dotted in the hills, this Island with a name for itself has to be hands down my favourite.
Stylish dining under the stars at Sa Capella restaurant will provide you with culinary memories for years to come. Take in the unforgettable views of the twinkling lights of San Antonio and sunset tinged mountains beyond the rustic terrace bar. Dishes are divine, a combination of modern yet traditional, vivid and innovative, full of fresh ingredients bursting with colour and flavour. Some dishes are even cooked before your very eyes! A gesture of shots are served on ice after your meal, accept or decline as you desire/
Booking is highly advised.
Discover Ibiza’s hidden beaches away from the sprawling tourist hotels. Hidden among the rocks and cliffs, are the white sands of Cala Tarida, with several small coves for those willing to get their feet wet. If you’re more of the tourist seeker head to Cafe mambo for an unforgettable sunset.
For those wanting to carry on the party from the night before, nestled on a pebbly beach on the south west of the island with an area of extended sandy beach for soaking up the Balearic bliss, sits Blue Marlin. Graze at a selection of Mediterranean dishes and sip champagne on one of the reserve-only sun beds, with the sounds of live DJ’s bouncy around the beach club.
Tip - Hire a car for hopping around the Island.
