Playa d’en Bossa! The longest beach on the island and a paradise for the young party crowd. During the day, rest on the beach and sleep off the adventures from the night before under a parasol with fresh fruit and the cool sea breeze. If you can work up the energy then jet skis and paddle boards can be hired next to the beach. There are an endless supply of trendy spots to pick up food when you get hungry. After dark and until the sun comes up it’s party central, with two of Ibiza’s largest clubs, Ushuaia and Space. That’s a typical day in Ibiza. Are you ready?
History And A Tour
Dalt Vila is the oldest and most charming part of Ibiza Town. It’s also a UNESCO heritage site. This part of town is guarded by strong renaissance fortifications built by Charles V in the 16th century. The walls were constructed to fend off the threat of attacks by Berber pirates as well as any invading forces like the French. It’s quite a sight to see and taking a tour of the fortifications is worth it. Check out the seven bastions, each with a slightly different story to tell.
Sleep Will Come
Another spot to not to miss is the charming villas in Ibiza Town and dotted around the island. You can call one of them home during your stay. Experience the posh side of Ibiza with stunning pools, sprawling vistas and all the amenities of home. Where you stay is a huge part of the travel experience. Sometimes the best thing to do when you’ve had enough of going out is to stay in, at the best villa in Ibiza.
The Farm, The Lighthouse, and The Sea
Punta d’es Moscarter is a must do on this list. For a small island like Ibiza it’s incredible how remote and wild the northern tip can feel. This part of the island has stretching pine forests, farmland and a coastline.
For something a bit different, put on a pair of hefty shoes and walk the cliff-top trail from Portinatx to the lighthouse. Constructed in the nineteen seventies the cliff top trail stands at fifty two metres above the churning sea below. Currently it is the tallest human made structure on the island. The photos you can take from us here are worth the effort!
Food For Energy
A list isn’t complete unless we talk about the outstanding food that is available here.
There’s a pork delicacy unique to the Balearic islands that is well worth trying. Sobrasada is a kind of a cured sausage and kind of like chorizo. Soft, ground pork seasoned with paprika fills the mouth with pleasure. Admired across Spain but originates in Ibiza and Mallorca.
For a delicious and authentic main course, try bullit de peix, a fish stew served at local restaurants around the island. It’s warm, hearty and comforting. Made with potatoes and accompanied by lobster and shrimp it’s a seaside dream on a cold evening.
