Ibiza 2015 Guide

22 June 2015

 

 Ibiza Es Vedra

 

Ibiza is my favourite place in the world. I discovered this island 10 years ago and not to sound cliché, but it was truly love at first sight.

There is something magical about Ibiza that many can agree on, especially those who keep coming back each year. And no, it’s not only because of the sex, drugs and rock’n’roll :)

I thought to compile a small Ibiza guide with my personal suggestions of where to go and what to do this coming season. If anyone will be going this summer, here is some inspiration for you.

Best time to gobottomline

July!

August is packed and you will struggle with reservations.

Opening & Closing parties are good for a few days of hardcore party. Other wise it might not be worth it as weather may be bad and not super busy people wise.

 

 

Who to go withbottomline

Ibiza is a typical “group holiday” destination. You will enjoy it most if you go as a group, either with your girlfriends or mixed. Most common is to rent a villa and share in between everyone, for that reason there are not many great luxury hotels on the island as people reside in either villas or on yachts.

If you can’t get a group together then simply going with a friend or two is fine too.

 

 

Dress codebottomline

Anything goes! But people like to go more hippie chic and bohemian when they are in Ibiza.

Must 2 do’sbottomline

 

  • Take a picture with Es Vedra in the background (the unesco protected tiny island which is famous in Ibiza)
  • Go for a day trip to Formentera, roll around in their famous mud and have lunch at Juan y Andrea.
  • Visit a villa after party in the middle of nowhere.
  • Drink sangria.
  • Stroll around in Ibiza town by night.
  • Rent a jeep and drive around the island like a proper Ibiza local. Indulge in the beautiful nature of Ibiza, there is plenty to see if you just get away from the busy tourist points.
  • Sunbath topless. Everyone does it. If you are bold, explore the popular nudist and sex beaches.

What areas to hang out inbottomline

Avoid San Antonio (where all the trashy drunk brits are) and explore pretty much the entire island – if you get a chance. Otherwise most people hang out in Ibiza town, in Marina Botafoc, Talamanca, Playa D’en Bossa & the entire south part of Ibiza (Es Cubelles, Sant Josep, Ses Salines etc).

    Hi dear,
    why don’t you make the same review but French Riviera/Monaco as main theme? I traveled all over the world but I did not find the same amenities and people in Ibiza compared to what I found in the stunning Cote D’Azur. Yes, maybe you would answer “ok, but most of Cote d’Azur is only for high budgets, while Ibiza has some of everything and so anyone can theorically afford it”; you would be right, but hey, it is a jet set babes blog, so the word “budget” is not that important. I think the coastline between St Tropez and Menton is amazing (not to mention Marseille and its incredible calanques too), you can have an awesome time for a lifetime without ever getting bored as there are so many spots and things to do (you could actually live there – it’s almost close to any other area!).
    About the crowd, in Ibiza I found mostly the “night/young crowd”, the ones who like partying and so on – nothing bad about it, but it’s almost always the same kind of people, while what I found special in Cote D’Azur is that you have people from all around the world – well, mostly, wealthy, hahahah – but with totally different habits, you get to see everything (the old, the young, the one who likes going out, the one who likes relaxing etc.).

    Hi JSB,

    Thanks so much for this article!Going to Ibiza for the first time in two weeks and found this really helpful. I have a question: is there any particular day in the week(end) when it`s best to go to a certain beach club during daytime? When everyone goes? Like, is Blue Marlin for example “hot”on Saturdays only and some other club on Fridays?

    I recently went to Dubai and missed Blue Marlin as we went on a Saturday and it was empty, and everyone told us that Thursday is “the day” to go there, so I don`t wanna make the same mistake on Ibiza…

    Any advice would be great!
    Love your blog xx
