Ibiza ❤ …Dream island! Ibiza is not only about clubbing. The media promotes it that way but for me it’s not about that at all. It is true that this island is a crazy party getaway but there are also countless breathtaking sandy beaches, sightseeing, hippy markets and bars that you cannot miss in Ibiza!
Here are the 8 things you shouldn´t miss while visiting Ibiza!
Discover its Beautiful Beaches
Ibiza has more than 50 great beaches and I certainly have not even seen nearly everyone. But I have already visited one or the other bay and I can recommend you some beaches.
Playa de Aguas Blancas in northern Ibiza is the most beautiful one. Not just in Ibiza, but throughout Europe. The water is incredibly transparent and crystal clear.
My other favorites are Cala Salada next to San Antonio, Cala Comte on the west coast of Ibiza, Cala Bernirrás where you can see fish and even starfish, and Playa de Ses Salines in the south of Ibiza.
Party till Dawn
Ibiza has the most exiting nightlife with a variety of fabulous venues that host some of the most famous DJs in the world. That´s why you cannot leave Ibiza without at least one night spent in one of these amazing clubs on the island. DC10, Amnesia, Pacha, Ushuaïa and Privilege… To learn more about clubbing in Ibiza, you can read my blog post “Guide for a Wild Ibiza Clubbing Holiday”.
Explore Dalt Villa
Dalt Villa, also known as Ibiza Old Town, refers to the oldest part of the old town. Doesn’t matter which way you will choose up through the castle, you will get lost in the narrow-cobbled streets with cozy whitewashed cafes and restaurants. Then you will find yourself at the top of the hill and enjoy the beautiful view over the island and its port.
The island of Formentera… It is super chilled and so gorgeous. Catch a ferry which lasts only thirty minutes and enjoy the most beautiful naturist beaches. I would recommend you to go and stay on the breathtaking beach Playa de Ses Illetes with its turquoise waters and sugar-white sand.
Watch the Faboulos Sunsets
Ibiza has heavenly beautiful sunsets. There are many hot spots such as Es Vedrà, Café del Mar and Café Mambo in San Antonio, Sunset Ashram Bar in Cala Comte. I was in Cala Comte and watched the sunset on the rocks. It was breathtaking!
Release the Inner Hippie in You
Ibiza was one the most interesting places for hippies who moved to this island a long time ago. The island has since continued to attract many wanderers and bohemians. That´s why Ibiza doesn’t only enjoy a reputation as a party island, but also as a hippie island. To enjoy a unique experience with a crowd of hippies, head to Benirrás Beach on a Sunday evening for the famous sunset drumming circle.
Don´t forget to visit the Punta Arabí Hippy Market in Es Caná on Wednesdays, or the Dalias Hippy Market in San Carlos on Saturdays. You will find many interesting outfits, jewellery, handbags, small trinkets, and beautiful stones. Most importantly you will meet many spiritual and interesting people. Visit definitely Dani´s stand and meet the mystical world of the stones.
Being honest, I didn´t have any time to search for a restaurant after partying every night, and then sleeping on the beaches. So I tried some restaurants in the touristic places. The food was not recommendable but I found a very delicious local cafeteria coincidentally. I still miss their breakfast and tapas. That´s why I definitely recommend you to go there, meet the owner of the cafe, Carlos, who is a very chilled guy and make you feel home, and try his very tasty tapas, also the various breakfasts!
Uninhabited Island Es Vedra
Visit the area of Cala d’Hort to see a spectacular rock formation, Es Vedrà. This small, rocky island is a result of a geological tumble, and is uninhabited except goats, lizards and falcons. Es Vedra has also a reputation as being of a mystical place and the center of magnetic lines of power.
