IBIZA, It’s the good vibe!

Super Clubs, strip of bars, beautiful beaches, sunsets, party people and the good vibe. It is my favourite summer destination in Europe.

Explore Dalt Vila (literally “Upper Town”), located on a little mountain by the sea, the view after an uphill walk is breath-taking.

It is famous as the party capital of Europe as summer would bring the most popular DJ’s to play in the several super clubs of the Island. I have been to some and have  seen a few famous dj’s like DJ Tiesto and Hardwell, and I had been to other themed parties like Matinee in Amnesia.

I remember the first time that I came here and the expectations was high. I even brought my coolest boots only to find out that you can get into the super clubs even when you are wearing flip flops. Buses to super clubs are available until it closes and the main acts starts at around 1-2am.

So if you want to see David Guetta ….it would be a long night. The clubs close after the sunrise. Before you head to the super clubs, there are plenty of bars and chill out lounges that are already open by the time you wake up in the morning.

But if partying is not your turf, you can go to the beaches with different types of crowd be it quiet, party beach or if you dare … the nudist beaches. This small island is surrounded by long stretches of beaches and coves.IMG_3325

We spent one summer driving around the island looking for a new beach or cove everyday for two weeks. The island is small that you can drive around it in a day.

Es Vedrà (Legends and mythology) – The island is said to be home to sirens and sea-nymphs, who tried to lure Odysseus from his ship in Homer’s Odyssey. It is also thought of as the holy island of the Tanit the Phoenician lunar goddess, worshiped as the patron goddess and of fertility, who became Ibiza’s patroness. Legend has it that specific sacrifices were made to Tanit during full moons on the shore of the island. -Wikipedia
Some of the sights that you can see when driving around the Island.

Why not take the boat and explore the pristine beaches around Formentera.

Formentera – The smallest of Spain’s Balearic Islands.

Tip! Just a piece of advise though, there are no restaurant in the beach areas so you better bring food and drink with you. There are also no trees to shade so bring your own parasol.

This area looks busy but if you walk along past these crowd you can find a less crowded beach.
Formentera is a popular day trip destination from Ibiza.

Try to spot the old inhabitants of the Island, the Ibiza wall lizard.

Tip! The sea could be choppy sometimes so better choose the big one’s and you can get them from Ibiza town, and make sure you don’t miss the last boat going back to Ibiza.

Don’t miss the majestic sunset at the famous Cafe Del Mar. Tip! A bottle of beer costs a fortune at Cafe del Mar so people buy beer at the shops and stay on the rocks.

This place became famous with its own brand of music in the 90’s. Experience how they play the music that seems to be synchronizing as the sun touches on the horizon, and the applause the you hear from the crowd after the sun has set is something magical.

If you want water sports there are plenty to chose from like this photos taken at Playa d’en Bossa

Playa d’en Bossa has the longest beach in the island.

Playa d’en Bossa  is one of the busiest beaches in the island. Not unless you stay in one of the hotels in the area you might find it difficult to find a place to spread you beach towels.

We have experienced fiestas, different types of market and historical walks. I was chatting with a stranger on the party bus going back to the apartment where I was staying and we both recognised that Ibiza is not as how it used to be, it seemed to have calmed down form how it was before, but he said he keeps on coming back, for no specific reason but we just agreed that it’s for the good vibe.

Here, you have seen some of the photos from the several trips that I have made in Ibiza, some of the places have closed down and reopened with a different name.

There is no place where almost everyone is having a good time. A place where the population more than doubles during summer. If you are going to Ibiza my tip would be stay longer than a weekend and go around the island. I hope to see you again Eivissa!!!
