Ibiza tips and links

Ibiza, the white island, has a reputation for being just a party island, however the majority of the island is rustic, authentic and magical. In fact, there are authentic “pueblos blancos’, secluded calas, the old town which is a UNESCO Heritage site, wonderful cliff sunsets superb restaurants….

There are many beautiful sights and hotels that we like in Ibiza, the below are  just a few of our favourites, we love them  because of their stunning location, history  and /or quality of service.

Some facts:

  • Ibiza is expensive .
  •  If you want to see the real Ibiza, avoid San Antonio Area.
  • The best time to visit is from May to September. Ideally July. Avoid August if you don’t like crowds.
  • The best places get booked months in advance so make your reservations early.
