Ibiza

Ibiza

A famed bohemian getaway, Ibiza is much more than just a dance-till-dawn destination. With a budding food scene in the north, featuring farm-to-table feasts, sanctuary style hotels and yoga retreats, the island renders a much more holistic side.

THE DEETS

LANGUAGE: Catalan 

CURRENCY: Euros

CLIMATE: 300 days of sunshine! Summer runs May - late September and is the most popular time to visit the island. We visited in June and average temp was 75 degrees.

GETTING AROUND: I highlighy recommend renting a car so you can explore the entire island.

CULTURE: Very global and diverse atmosphere - you'll find people from all over Europe visiting or living in Ibiza. A couple things to keep in mind:

  • Be prepared to be comfortable with nudity as most beach-goers prefer to swim and sunbathe in their birthday suit.
  • Tipping not expected or necessary.

eat, drink, sleep & shop

  • BAI BAI | A local hotspot, this tapas style restaurant features traditional Spanish fare, from boquerones and croquetas de carrillera (beef cheek) to patatas bravas and gambas al ajo. So good, we ordered everything twice.
  • LA ESCOLLERA | Best paella on the island. Enough said.
  • RESTAURANTE 2000 | Second best paella on the island, with a really casual vibe. I literally sat at the table sans pants.
  • CALA BONITA | This beach club features upbeat music, a delicious mediterranean menu and magnums of rosé available - which they will bring to you on the beach if you decide not to sit in the restaurant.
  • COTTON BEACH CLUB & BOUTIQUE | Glam beach club with an equally glam assortment of island-style clothing.
  • LA GRANJA | Defined by classical Iberian architecture with hints of Moorish influence - this farmhouse features 5 suites, a guest house and a killer farm-to-table menu.
  • ATZARÓ | Located in the heart of Ibiza's north side of the island and surrounded by orange and olive groves, this sanctuary style hotel boasts a farmhouse, spa, fitness club, multiple swimming pools and a yoga temple. 
  • HIPPY MARKETS | These open-air, flea market style pop-ups have varying schedules so ask around the island for tips on when and where to find them.

A big thank you to Paris from Viviendo el Sueno (and her hubby) for showing us around the island.
