Because Ibiza attracts more and more people every year, I decided to create my own little island guide with my 23 years of experience. I hope you like it!
- Go eat tapas (or pizza if you’re not into Spanish food, which I won’t believe) at Bistro Can Pa, near to Cala Vadella. Not only the food, but also the service is fantastic! Tip: live music and dancing (obligated) on Sundays. Address: Carrer Cala Vadella, 9, 07830 Sant Josep de sa Talaia
- Go shopping at Es Cucons in Santa Gertrudis. The store has a wide range of clothing, jewellery and home decoration objects. I found myself the perfect wrap dress over there. Address: Plaza de la Iglesia nº7, 07814 Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera
- Finished shopping in Santa Gertrudis? Then your next stop must be at Finca La Plaza for a cozy dinner in their magical garden. On the menu? Seasonal Mediterranean dishes. Address: Plaza de la Iglesia, 5, 07814 Santa Gertrudis de Fruiter
- Visit the Las Dalias Hippy Market, the biggest one in Ibiza. It is the place to buy souvenirs for your friends and family, and for yourself of course. It’s where I discovered the amazing jewellery brand Oraïk. Address: Carretera San Carlos, Km. 12, 07850 Sant Carles de Peralta
- Sipping fresh juices at Raco Verd. Hungry as well? Don’t worry, they got it covered! You can also come here in the evening for some foodsharing (tapas), cocktails (!) and live music. Oh and don’t forget to visit their new shop! Address: Plaza de la Iglesia, s/n, 07830 Sant Josep de Sa Talaia
- Go eat tapas at El Destino (yes, I looooove tapas!). One of my favorite restaurants in Ibiza. Tip: book a table, it’s a very popular place among locals and tourists. Address: Carrer sa Talaia, 15, 07830, Sant Josep de Sa Talaia
- If you are renting something near Sant Josep de Sa Talaia and you want to barbecue at home, then I can only suggest to buy fresh fish at Pescaderia Oliver and your meat at Carneceria Toni. Address: Carrer de Can Cantó, 3. Sant Josep de Sa Talaia
Stroll around in Dalt Vila, the old town of Ibiza. I usually arrive there around 17 o’clock, right at time for some icecream from Vivi’s Creamery (the best of the best). You can lose the calories during the historical walking tour up to the church (even though vacation calories don’t count). Staying over for dinner? Well, there are so many good restaurants that recommending one in specific is going to be difficult. But as you already know, I love tapas and I must say that Can Terra or La Bodega are doing a great job in making them, although my parents keep on saying I need to try out Re Art (tapas as well).
- Have a romantic dinner at La Paloma. I already wrote an article about this one so I’m not going to say more, only that it is a big must going there! Address: Calle Can Pou, 4, 07812 Sant Llorenç de Balàfia
- Want to take a refreshing dive into the sea? Then you’ll have many great options. My all time favorite beaches are: Es Torrent, Es Cavallet, Cala Vadella, Cala Moli, Cala Comte and Cala Tarida. Fun guaranteed with the last two, because both of them have got a big rock to jump off from #childhoodmemories.
I think I am going to stop here because I can go on and on and on… I hope it will be usefull for some of you. If you still have questions or you just want some more insider tips, don’t hesitate to send me an email! I’ll be happy to respond to it.
