Last night we came home after five days Ibiza. An island where, frankly I had some doubts about. We love good food and drinks and great music, but you won’t find us partying in a club every single night and we hate masses of people in a hotel where you can get in line for your breakfast every morning. Well … it was nothing like that!
We had a lovely, modern, recently renovated appartment right at the beach in Playa d’en Bossa, just under Eivissa (Ibiza town) and a 10 minute walk from the famous Ushuaia, they had their closing party at the 1th of october and were closed now. In this time of year a perfect place. A lot of fun and not to buisy.
A walk on the beach during full moon is always gorgeous and romantic.
What a great city Eivissa is. This city has is all! Fantastic restaurants, cozy and pretty shops, a beautyfull port and a lot of culture. An old city within big gorgeous citywalls where hip and hippie get together.
On top of the citywall you’ve got a great view over the old town.
In the harbour you find pretty tiny sailing boats but also the huge luxury yachts and cruiseships dock here.
Tapas and wine… ingredients for a very nice evening.
It’s smart to rent a car or a scooter when your on the island. There are so many pretty bays you otherwise would never discover. You’ll literally see all sides the island has to offer.
A great experience was Cala de Benirras. We were tipt before we left that we had to go there on sunday. A wonderfull day at the beach, a small (but lovely) hippie market, a relaxed atmospere, fantastic restaurants (not cheap so bring your wallet or a picknickbasket) and hippies. Around 4pm the hippies gather around with their drums in a corner of the bay en during the sunset they make music and dance. The lower the sun sets, the louder and faster they play their drums. A great (a bit touristic, but hey) experience that I didn’t want to miss.
Yes I’ve lost my heart to this island. A feeling I can’t discribe and you just have to experience. Do you have any tips for my next (hopefully longer) visit?
