This time last week we were topping up our tans on the beautiful, iconic party island of Ibiza. Believe it or not, it was actually my first time visiting (I know! I know! What took me so long...I hear you say?) Well, let's just say the 'seal is now broken' and we will be heading back there as soon as we get another chance! Ibiza certainly did not disappoint, nor on the beauty nor the party front!
We flew out there with the brand Blow Out Ibiza to shoot their summer campaign and DJ at their launch party, which was pretty epic.
We were there for 5 days but we also managed to squeeze in a few day trips and parties, as you do! Coincidentally we were there for the opening of DC-10 (One of the Islands best underground electronic clubs, which saw us dancing our shoes off until the early hours of the morning)
So we compiled a short list of some of the must do's and see's if you get a chance to make it there this summer...You'd be silly not to!
El Chiringuito - This is the perfect place for a beach day. Think: white sofa beds on the beach, vibey music, amazing cocktails, INSANELY delicious food, beautiful people, sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Come here and set up camp for the day and evening, you'll have everything you want and need. It's also super close to the airport, so you can head here for the day and leave your bags with the staff if you have a late afternoon or evening flight.
Las Salinas - Quite possibly one of the most iconic of all Ibiza beaches, Las Salinas is a long expanse of soft golden sand surrounded by a nature reserve including sand dunes, pine forests and spectacular salt flats. Stunning. DJs spin Balearic beats until the sun goes down and dancers parade along the shore promoting the island’s famous nightlife..... Spot the nudist!
Sa Punta - Located at the furthest point of Talamanca bay, only five minutes from bustling Ibiza town and its thriving nightlife scene is Sa Punta, the restaurant we came to on our last night for a team dinner. It's stylish decor and location on the water front makes it very popular amongst holiday goers and locals and the food is superb! As the night falls, it transforms into an ultra-cool sassy and stylish dining destination playing host to some beat-savvy DJ's. Make sure you get the prawn tempura for starters and the black cod for main. (Getting hungry at the thought!)
Destino -Destino is the new boutique resort concept by Pacha Group. One place to enjoy the real Mediterranean lifestyle all day and all night long. Come here for evening cocktails or chill by the beautiful pool in the day and if you're up for a party as well, you'll normally find DJ's playing there all throughout the summer!
Giardinetto - If you're looking for a nice, relaxed place to have a delicious Italian dinner then look no further. Giardinetto, located in the Marina Botafoch is the one. Sit outside on their cute terrace just steps away from the beautiful yachts in the Marina and the romantic backdrop of the Old Town and ask for their prawn linguine. Drizzling in olive oil, garlic, prawns and chilli, this dish is simply to die for. Make sure you try the pizzas too, they are crispy, flavoursome and leave you wanting more!
