What can I say about Ibiza? Special? Unique? Many people have there own interpretations of this beautiful island some would say its disgusting and some thing its the most amazing place on earth. However please feel  free to interpret Ibiza however you like…

To me Ibiza is a very special place. A beautiful island and yet so strange.. Full of sun burnt  brits , guys and girls that have partied far to hard and for too many years and dressed way past there sell by date. Girls in fluffy outfits , guys in fluffy outfits a place for the weird and wonderful and many different walks off life.

Having spent my own misspent teenage years on the Isle with family and friends and even the season I can recommend Ibiza to the young, old rich and poor and here is why…

Ibiza is the party capital of the world but behind the scenes lies one of the most beautiful islands in Europe.. Ibiza known to the local as Evissa boasts some great beaches and great little villages. For some quiet beaches head to the North and East of the Island away from the main tourist areas of San Antonio and Ibiza town.  Take a trip to Cala Xarraca Beach, which is the north of the Island and is has a beautiful large bay with crystal clear water which is perfect for snorkelling there are two beaches located here and both have small sandy beaches , for those who fancy rejuvenating your body then there is a mud bath located just to the left of Xarraca beach.

For those coming with a family then there is plenty to do. Take the scenic train ride which lasts around 2 hours and is an extremely popular way to see the Island. You can take one of these rides from numerous points on the Island. There is also a Aqua Park located in Playa d’en Bossa which  is a fun day out for all the family.

However I believe the main reason that people come to the Island is for the atmosphere and the clubbing, there is no other place that I have been to where everyone is happy and feeling great.. To soak up this atmosphere just take a trip down the area made famous by Cafe Del Mar and just sit and watch the sun set enjoying a cocktail sitting on the rocks… The sun set is one of the most amazing sun sets every to be seen and once the sun hits the water the crowds clap and the music gets turned up and everyone starts dancing along the beach front..

There are numerous clubs and bars throughout the Island the majority of them being in San Antonio , Ibiza town and the big clubs are located out of town with transport going back and forth all night to take the clubbers…

Ibiza caters for all music tastes from funky house, trance, hard house, drum n bass and for those who like rock then Ibiza Rocks which started in 2005 has seen artists such as the Kaiser Chiefs, Hard-Fi, babyshambles and Kasabian playing over the last few years.

The big clubs such as Manumission, Pacha , Space , Space, Amnesia  plus many more have been going for years and all hold different club nights through out the season. Pacha is the only club to stay open through out the year for the locals to enjoy once the riff raff have left !!!

Although the clubs are expensive and purchasing tickets is a must nothing beats the atmosphere. Enjoy the cold jets of air in Amnesia and for the more adventurous stay and watch the live sex show of Manumission, here you can party until early hours of the morning and then head to Space or DC10 to continue.

The famous bars of Cafe del Mar, Bar M , Bora Bora in Playa den Bossa are a must for first time visitors to the Island.

For me Ibiza is about the atmosphere and is truly a magical place. I could write more about this amazing Island but you should really go and experience it for yourself. But be careful you may not want to come back !!
