Ibiza – more than just a party town

Given its holiday season, with your girls (or guys), this months blog is all about that: a getaway to Ibiza

May bank holiday 2017 with my girls. Was actually brilliant as I’d just spent about 10 days or so with the hubby in South Africa, got off the plane in England and few hours later, I was in Ibiza with the girls 🙂

People mistakenly think Ibiza is purely a party town but you’re very wrong. Ibiza is also a great place, with beautiful scenery and able to relax. Off course, it’s also party town, so make of it what you will.

We stayed in playa d’en bossa, great base to get to ibiza town for party animals (Ibiza town & San Antonio is also great locations for those considering).

So, what’s there to do on this island:

1. Visit ibiza town. Stop by the cafe for a bite to eat and good old tea served the proper way (yes, I’m a tea lover!), and soak in the views

2. Day trip to San Antonio

3. Whilst by the port, catch a boat trip to any of the local villages. We did one to Playa Cala basa. Be sure to bring your swim wear so you can dip in the sea

4. Visit the nightclubs (off course). We tried Pacha in Ibiza town. Let’s just say, some girls got “lost” and enjoyed their time “missing”!

4. Have your own room or beach party!

5. Beach or pool lounge chilling & catch some rays, with a cocktail in your hand (#standard!)

6. If you’re the spa time, make sure to get a hotel with a spa so you can make it into a truly relaxing getaway also (we did & loved it)

Taxis were a fairly great and cheap way to get around for those who like to explore like us. Trips with your girls are definitely memorable (can’t divulge anymore than that – sorry guys!), and where possible, I like to get away at least once a year with either just my sister or a girls holiday – it’s good for the soul!

We’re keeping it short & sweet this time but check in next month where we take you away to Amsterdam. We’ll have a twist on Amsterdam so watch this space!

Happy summer guys. And for those wondering what our next destination is, it’s at the end of the month to:

For me: the Lake District (strictly girls only!)
For hubby: Amsterdam (strictly guys only!)

Bye for now 🙂 x

  1. You guys look amazing as always.
    Funny IBIZA is always the topic when it comes to party holidays. BBC radio 2 had a huge discussion on the subject a few weeks ago. The presenter was describing his experience as a teen in ibiza and they were not all innocent party fun. Many callers also talked about having inappropriate experience with the party reps and that they wouldn’t recommend their teenagers to choose it as a holiday destination after their experiences as females. Turns out the men are bated to come based on the promise of getting “laid” and the women are advertising tools. This really did put a taint on the island for me, having not been there. It seems once you’re married you’re not welcome, it’s only for the young, single and freaky, ready for sun, drugs and sex. So I’ve missed my boat. Hahah

    Your experience however, is contrary to that, it makes me think, maybe this island is misrepresented after all.
    Thanks for shedding a bright light on the subject.

    1. Thanks for your comment, and you make a good point, hence my title “Ibiza – not just a party town”. People have ideas based on what people sell you. If anything, my only real sordid experience was actually in Cancun 8 years ago when random strangers asked us if we wanted to buy hard drugs! But I’m sure Cancun doesn’t have that bad a reputation! Any place (party island or not) as it’s drabs, it depends on the group you’re with / the type of person you are, that determines your experience. We had 2 married girls on this trip and 3 others in relationships so you can see, it really can be for a mix of audience. Hope this has helped sway your mind a little of what Ibiza can be.
