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.
Juan y Andrea in Formenterra
Monday: Cocoon @ Amnesia, Circoloco @ DC10
Tuesday: Flower Power @ Pacha
Wednesday: Axwell & Ingrosso @ Ushuaia, Hyte @ Amnesia
Thursday: F**** me I’m Famous @ Pacha, Destino
Friday: Music On @ Amnesia
Saturday: Ants @ Ushuaia,
Sunday: Sundays @ Blue Marlin, Sundays @ Beach House, Solomun @ Pacha
(side note: Lio which is a restaurant becomes a club after 1 am, which is always worth checking out on any day)
Check out the full party calendar for this summer here.
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.
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.
Anything goes! But people like to go more hippie chic and bohemian when they are in Ibiza.
- 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.
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).
Yes, but depends what you compare with.
To give you some examples, here are some approx. prices:
Basic 2 star hotel room: From €50/night and up (can be even higher during peak season)
Lunch at Chiringuito/Beach house: Main courses range between €10-35
Dinner at Lio/Cipriani: Minimum spend of €150 per person
Large sun bed (max 4 people) at Blue Marlin for the day: €100 for the bed plus €300 minimum spend
Club entrance (with standard tickets): €40-50
Water at any of the big clubs: €12
Taxi from Amnesia club to Ibiza town: €20
