You may well ask why I am writing a post about Ibiza. When the weather here is somewhat unpredictable, and it looks like Autumn is round the corner.
Well following my first ever visit to Ibiza I thought I’d share with you a few tips and idea’s. Especially, as you still have chance to hop on a plane before the week of closing parties.
Ibiza was always on my list of places to visit. I was very fortune this year to experience it with a group of great friends. That being said we were also joined by my daughter Millicent and Harry.
Who I though would of have frowned upon our choices. Rolled their eyes on several occasions. And even hid under the nearest sunbed to get away from embarrassing parents. But no you would be wrong 🙂
So my first tip would be to make sure the hotel you are going to stay in doesn’t just cater for the twenty something. Unless your happy to wear make up, 5 inch heels and of course a swimsuit that rocks during the day and night !
We opted for the lovely Iberostar, Santa Eulalia which lay in a very quiet part of Ibiza. The Marina and Town is around a 10 minute drive in a taxi and will cost approximately 10 euro’s. This is a beautiful place to eat of an evening with some great restaurants. However, when I return I’ll book the Melia. This hotel caters a little more for the party crowd with adjacent Nikki Beach Bar.
Hence nightlife would be a little less low key.
Whilst in Ibiza we made sure that we attended one of the large venues, and decided upon Pasha. So we booked Flower Power Night. One thing that made this all the more fun was dressing according to the theme. This included painting our faces with glittery flowers. Fortunately we had a skilled 19 year old to assist with this.
Otherwise we would not of looked a pretty site.
We booked our tickets online, and I advance booked private car hire before we went.
So glad I did….
All information and links are at the bottom. Taxi’s in and around Ibiza are expensive so for special nights out I would highly recommend booking ahead.
Two places I will recommend going to is..
The stalls there are amazing, and you can pick up some beautiful items of clothing, along with wall art and jewelry.
The live band and DJ make for a great afternoon of dancing.
IBIZA OLD TOWN
Visit here late afternoon, early evening, especially if you want to enjoy an afternoon drink, or evening meal as the cobbled streets are decorated beautifully with stunning restaurants.
I know that I’ll return to Ibiza and go to an outside venue such as Cafe Mambo. Along with some of the beaches off the beaten track, and explore the beauties that lie beneath the surface of this amazing Balearic Island.
I would love to hear about your experiences of Ibiza and if you have any suggestions for my next visit xx
