There seems to be absolutely loads of last minute TUI deals for Ibiza at the moment, so if you are thinking about getting away, here are some of the reasons you should go for this lil island.
OKAY so, before I went, I thought Ibiza was mainly just a party place and that it was mainly just going to be the beaches I was interested in. Oh how wrong I was. Ibiza is beautiful, the old town is amazing, my boyfriend and I were spending hours just wandering about and taking it all in. It actually gives kind of Santorini vibes with all the old white buildings.
So, this was taken at the top of Dalt Vila, the old, beautiful defence tower. There's little restaurants, cafes and boutiques on your way up and it was definitely one of my favourite days from the holiday.
(excuse my awkward posing here :))
We went to a hippie market one of the days also which was incredible, it takes place every Wednesday and there's bus services that take you to the market (the town that the market takes place in is really lovely too!)
The market has loads of jewellery and clothes and really everything however there isn't much food,so don't be expecting loads of stalls full of food. Expect beautiful crafts and live music (and very well dressed Spaniards)
The other must-do when you go to Ibiza is visit Formentera. You HAVE TO do this. This island has been described to be the most Carribiean-esque place in Europe and I have to say I agree. The sands is this perfect white sand and the water is turquoise and completely see-through so you can see fish and jellyfish swimming all around you.
It is the closest place to paradise I have ever been and it's only a 40 minute ferry from Ibiza Port. I think it was around 20-30 euros for the ferry and then an 8 euro bus to get to the beautiful Playa Illetes. However I strongly recommend bring your own water and food because it is very expensive once you get to the beach. There are only three ;little bar/restaurants so they overprice everything. We're talking 5 euros for a bottle of water so come well prepared. There are a couple of supermarkets close to where you get off the ferry so go to them first and stock up before you get the bus!!
I would say these were the three main things that we did, apart from this we spent a lot of time just going on walks, going to cafes, spending time on the beach, shopping in the old town and exploring about. There are lots of boat excursions and cliff jumping tours and clubs and bars everyyywhere.
OH and also 'Surf Lounge Ibiza'!! This little place is really cool and I actually don't think I have any pictures but they have a really nice bar where you can watch (or partake on) the surfing simulator (which I can assure you is VERY amusing to watch.
