4 must do’s whilst in Ibiza

A must when you visit Ibiza is a hike down to the famous rock carvings of Atlantis. Still remaining a
relatively undiscovered location, be prepared for a 30 min challenging walk/slide on your bottom
down the mountain and a crawl to get back up again.

However, do not let this put you off. Once
you have arrived, it will have been well worth the hike and something you will remember for always.
Take a swim in the natural crystalline rock pools, discover the ancient rock carvings. It’s worth
remembering to take a small picnic and plenty of water, oh and some sturdy shoes for walking.


A real treat on a clear day is a long leisurely breakfast at Cappuccino located at the very end of
Marina Botafoc. Make sure to request a table outside where you will be seated in front of the
dramatic sea view across to Ibiza old town.

The menu is varied offering, pastries, fruit, yogurts or a
full breakfast/brunch menu, for a real treat add a glass of champagne or two and that’s your
morning taken care of.


Las Dalias or the Hippy Market happens every Wednesday in Es Canar, on the east side of the island.
Arrive early in the summer months to avoid the gathering crowds. Here you will find anything and
everything from fashion, food, plants, antique, and homeware.

 Relax with a cold beer whilst you submerge yourself in the unique atmosphere and the talent of the live performers. You can meet and chat with the many artisan store owners, some have been here since the market started 40 years ago, and are only too eager to share their exciting stories of how they came to Ibiza and how the Island was back in the day.


I call it the chug chug boat; however, I am not entirely sure that this is the correct name for this little
tourist ferry. This trip I have been making with my young children (now teenagers) at least twice a
year for the past ten years, and even now they still secretly look forward to the journey. The boat
leaves from the port in front of Hotel Corso approx. every 20 minutes all year round. I love to take
the boat early evening during the summer months.

Once in Ibiza port, we wind our way past the little market stalls and cute boutiques, then make our way at a leisurely pace up the cobbled ramp to the entrance of the old town Dalt Villa, arriving just as the sun starts to set.
My favourite dinner spot has to be restaurant El Portalon located in the old town in Plaça dels
Desemparats. With bellies full of delicious fare and having tasted some of the most excellent wines
available on the island it’s a slow totter back down the drawbridge (high heels should be kept in the
wardrobe for this particular trip). For an after-dinner cocktail, it would be rude not to swing a right
at the foot of the ramp and take the small steps up to Sa Penya. Here you will find a selection of bars
and restaurants tucked between the flaky white medieval walls. It is always here that I feel like I am
experiencing the real Ibiza. My favourite spot is Ibiza’s coolest cocktail, Absinthe bar and Bistro
1805. Do try the Gin Basil Smash, Grape Sour or the classic French absinthe drip is a must…Following
this, the chug chug back to the Marina is always an amusing one!
