Ibiza is the official party capital of the world. And since both Apeksha and me are party lovers, it didn’t take long to freeze it as one of our honeymoon destinations.
The jewel island of Mediterranean Sea sure was the highlight of our trip. Must thank Ryanair, the most economical European airline, we could fly to 4 different cities located distantly on the world map.
There is sweet smell of freedom in the air and the undisturbed nature loves you back with all its beauty. We landed at 7 am on 31st May and spent 3 days on the island in one of the best hotels near San Antonio Bay. Over the day we also restored our energy levels after a tiring trip to Warner Bro’s Park, Madrid followed by a bus trip to Valencia.
The island has plenty of attractions:
Clubs like Amnesia, Pacha, Space and many more.
The city’s official website is actually a calendar, listing parties all throughout the year, the peak season being summer/spring i.e. June – September.
The Pukka Up boat parties are the worlds sexiest awarded by MTV at global level.
The multicolored wall lizards is a rare species found only in Ibiza
Can Marçà Caves go back 100,000 years old and have contributed fossils to the National History Museum
Formentera – A sister island is a popular snorkeling and scuba diving destination.
The island is a collection of numerous small beaches each with a distinct formation and beautiful views. The top ones are:
Playa Den Bossa
Most beaches are located only with 15-20 minutes ride from San Antonio.
The stay started with the opening season party of Hed Kandi @club Es Paradise on the first night from 12 am to 6 am in the morning. We had a nice long sleep the next day till early evening and spent rest of the day chilling at the hotel cooking maggi, playing by the pool and enjoying free drinks at the Miramar Sunset Lounge.
The lounge had a wall overlooking the crystal clear blue ocean which extended till the horizon and was a perfect sunset point. Very romantic indeed.
Most days we had our breakfast at Moby Dick, an American restaurant right outside our hotel. They served the perfect American breakfast comprising baked beans, hash-brown, baked tomato et all. We also tried some Chinese for Dinner.
Oh and there was a little Indian restaurant there too!
We hired a bike on Day 2 and visited the Can Marca Caves in Port de Sant Miquel. Since it was 25 euro for a day with full tank, it was a good deal. As we drove on the hilly roads of the island and arrived after 25 minute ride, a beautiful view awaited us.
The entry to the caves was 10 euro per person. We spotted the beautiful famous Ibizan lizard on our way to the entrance. It was an amazing experience with the waterfall show being the highlight. The cave also has natural deposits of mineral rich water reflecting multiple colors. Smugglers used these as their hiding spots and made red markings to locate their goods.
On the last day before catching our flight back to Madrid we went to Ibiza town center and did some souvenir shopping. The main town is 30 minutes away from San Antonio. We hired a car as the price was equal to a taxi ride (around 40 euros for a Puegeot with Insurance) to the airport and it was fun driving on the hilly roads of the island.
We are definitely going back with more time in hand to explore the remaining beaches and clubs on the island!
