So basically Ibiza is my second home and has been for the past 12 years. I love the island and the whole vibe is just amazing. If you have been there before you know what i mean and if you haven't then please go visit! No Ibiza is not just the famous party island that you have heard about, it doesn't only involve crazy drunk (english) people (they tend to locate themselves in San Antonio so if you want to avoid this scene then stay away from there). All the partying aside, Ibiza has the most beautiful secret places, beaches, views and energy that you will ever experience. It is my home and close to my heart. 

What people don’t understand is that Ibiza is not only an island for partying and ‘escaping’ the real life, it is also a special place of healing and reconnecting with yourself. That I why I love Ibiza so much, I have never experienced a place where two worlds collide so close together. This way one can rest and recharge and occasionally celebrate life on the other side of the island. They say Ibiza is a mystical island and many stories circulate this amazing place. History: Ibiza is also known for its mythical stories such as Es Vedra, atlantis. This is a magical rock at the very end of Ibiza, they say time stops when being on the rock, something to do with a magnetic field under the sea. Others say it’s a passage for UFO’s and that many people have seen strange activity and lights around the rock. The most famous myth would be of the Greek god Odysseus, he was lured to this rock by sirens. They might just be stories, but they trigger some curiosity within our soul of hope that there is something more to life then just reality. My inner child craves some magic now and then and it’s nice to believe in something other then science and facts once in a while.  It might have caught your attention already that all of the towns and villages on Ibiza are named after saints. So for those wanting to visit Ibiza or have already visited Ibiza here are some tips for beautiful places you must have seen.

People always ask me for "local" tips, so i have made a list for you guys you must see. Hope you enjoy and book your ticket to Ibiza. (I love flying Vueling btw, the most friendly airline and really Spanish)

Bambuddha Bar
La Luna
Le Monde
Nassau beach club

Samsara (very local and good prices)

There are many beaches on Ibiza and it seems to be that each year many have new names, perhaps they want to attract more people of keep the same interest by making a new ‘concept’ out of it. It seems also to be that each year ‘tourists’ discover more hidden beaches and turn them into a ‘coco’ beach or a ‘malibu’ beach etc. because this will attract people. I must say that the most beautiful beaches are mainly situated on the north side of the island. Mainly because these parts have not been taken over by young party people, but merely people that are really interested in cruising the island for its beauty.

Cala nova
Cala salada
Cala St. Vincente
Utopia beach

Las Salines - Jockey Club
Es Cavallet
Cala Jondal - Blue Marlin
Sa Caleta

Playa den Bossa - Beach house Ibiza, Coco Beach Ibiza
Talamanca Beach - Harbour Club

Nikki Beach

Ibiza especially is a place to recharge yourself and join a yoga or welness retreat. Therefore there are many different retreat centers on the island. A good guide for the island can be found on White Ibiza. 

I personally love Ushuaia, this is the best place for me because it is outdoors and it lasts from 5pm-12pm so it is the perfect pre-party vibe. You can decide after to party on or call it a night. Tickets are between 45-75 euro's it depends on the party and DJ. Drinks inside are between 10 - 25, so 10 for water, 15 for wine, 20/25 for a mix drink or cocktail. My second fave club is Space, because it has many different rooms and terraces. I love that you can be outside and breath in the night air. Pacha is also a great club with a good vibe, it is one of the oldest clubs on the island. Check out Flower Power if you want the real experience. I always use ibiza spotlight to look up all of the parties (here).

Go to Formentera for a day and rent quads or scooters and cruise around the island. It is famous for its Turquoise blue waters and white beaches.

San Antonio
So this is the place that is known for all of the partying and drunk (english) people (haha). But it also has a few amazing places really worth checking out. Go and check out the sunset on the boulevard at Cafe Del Mar or Mynth Restaurant and have a pre-party drink at Cafe Mambo with famous dj's before you go clubbing.

Hippy Market
So there are two different markets on Ibiza, one on Wednesday in Es Canar and one on Saturday in San Carlos. Worth checking out and strolling down real hippy stands, it is adorable.

Also visit the old town in Eivissa and walk up all the way to the top. You will have the most amazing view over the whole island, at night you will see a million lights. 
So there are like a million more places that i could tell you about, but why not discover those on your own. If you would like to share your Ibiza experiences with us or tips please comment!

  1. I was at this place last week. This is such a joy as a place for food! I had a beautiful time here. It reminded me of another Chicago event space. A beautiful, wonderful place that had excellent atmosphere.
