Like most people, my initial introduction to Ibiza were blow-out parties, mainly because our company used to hold DJ residency at one of the most popular clubs on the island. Wild nights!
However, on this 2018 occasion, I had 12hrs to experience a different side of it and did that by enjoying some down time. Just enough to prove that exploring and partying are not mutually exclusive.
I mean, Ibiza has awesome beaches, award winning restaurants and amazing sunsets. Here are are a few spots I had fun discovering:
PLATJA ES CAVALLET
Totally instagrammable! An experience which begins with taking in the salt flats and scenic views of Formentera and Ibiza Town. The beach with its white sands and rolling waves. Perfect place to lounge under the sun and sip on yummy cocktails. It is also an official nudist beach, if you are into that sort of thing lol
Vara de Rey, right in the middle of Ibiza Town, is where this trendy restaurant is located. Making it a perfect spot for lunches or dinners, people watching too. At La Cava, we indulged in a variety of Mediterranean fusion dishes with zero regrets. Everything on the menu was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.
First, ordered a selection of flavoursome tapas:
Followed by main plates, which comprised of succulent Salmon paired with pickled vegetables and Chicken Breast with a side salad that had a citrus twist. I really dug into the Salmon!
Then came the chocolate brownie and vanilla ice-cream, which ended our night on a sweet note.
This boho chic boutique store has to be one of my favourite finds. Boheme had all sorts beach attire, unique in every sense and a cool Bougie hippie vibe about them. Also, got to connect with the owner Alessandra, over chats about print fabrics and fashion trends, which made this an even more pleasant experience as it felt personal. Walked out of the store with a bunch of amazing hats, and trust it will remain my Ibiza fix forever.
This island always promises a good time!
