Hey guys! I’ve been a bit lazy (let’s say busy) for the last few weeks, so I’m sorry to come up with this post when the summer is gone. But hey, it’s never too late to go to Ibiza! And maybe you are more organized than I am and will save this one for the next year. Or just be spontaneous and book a flight to go now. It’s still over 25 degrees over there and the famous closing parties will take place on this and the next weekend. So here we go: These are my favorite things to do during a weekend in Ibiza:
OLD TOWN FOR YOUR CONSCIENCEMake sure to do the serious part first. Exploring the old town of Ibiza won’t take you longer than two hours. And it looks so perfectly white and innocent (the only innocent part of the island I guess). Get lost in the lanes, write a postcard to your Grandma, eat a watermelon ice cream (which was disgusting but nice for a picture). Done.BEACHING AROUNDI loved the beach of Cala Conta. It’s not too crowded with lots of little spots where you can have lunch or jump into the water.Cala Portinatx (pictures below) is more a family beach with shallow water, but you can always swim out. The shades of blue are amazing at that one!MAKE OUT BEATS AT CAFE DEL MARWell, what shall I say: I just came by because “Cafe del Mar“ used to be the perfect make out music during my teenage years. And I had ALL their CDs haha. It’s still a nice place to watch the sunset with relaxing DJ sounds – they would even say they invented the sunset. But it’s quite empty during the day.HOTEL IN WONDERLANDThe Ushuaia Beach Hotel left me astonished all the time. I felt like a grown-up brunette Alice in Wonderland. There are so many cute details all over the place, day beds, an own beach club with snacks and drinks and good looking promoters coming along all the time. The hotel is located at Playa d’en Bossa, which is not the most beautiful beach of the island but definitely the one with the most party going on. And it’s just a couple of minutes away from the airport. So perfect for a short weekend stay. I’ve spent 30 seconds posing on this day bed before a waiter came up to tell me I had to order a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to be able to use it. Well, it’s Ibiza. And I’m perfectly fine laying on the sand…DINING WITH A BUTTI don’t know if the Kardashian sisters designed the chairs at the Minami restaurant, but all of them will make you a perfect butt. No need to worry about eating to much sushi.NATURE AND HIKING AND HEALTHY STUFFIf you can drink you can hike. I really had to watch my feet not to fall down during wandering Cala d’en Serra on that early morning. But these views definitely woke me up. After 2 hours…PARTY WITH ATTITUDE Being a rather quiet hotel during the day Ushuaia turns into one of the most wanted party locations (with DJs such as David Guetta, Avicii, Calvin Harris) shorty before the sun sets. Why is it so special? By providing a rare opportunity to see some of the biggest headliners on the island as the sun is still setting, Ushuaia has brought back the long-held tradition of daytime clubbing back to Ibiza. And there are a couple of benefits about staying at the hotel and not just coming for the party: you can listen to DJ sets from your balcony and you don’t have to pay the entrance fee (which starts from 50 euro depending on the particular event).You can get some really good rates if you book your stay as a package (flight+hotel) with Thomas Cook.
