Exploring Ibiza on Horseback
My sister Becci and I have been visiting Ibiza for over five years now. Our reasons for coming back each year, are much the same as everyone else’s: endless sunshine, pristine beaches and of course the incredible party scene.
There are so many things to be enjoyed here, it’s hard to fit everything in. I’ve always had this niggling feeling though, that there is still more to be discovered on the island.
On my last visit I was determined to seek out these other hidden secrets. I love horses and have been riding since I was ten so It seemed only natural for me to check out the horse riding scene in Ibiza. Read more
Las Dalias Ibiza
This year the alternative social hub of the north, that is Las Dalias Ibiza, celebrates 65 years of providing diverse musical and culinary delights to passing tourists and locals alike.
It’s home to the world famous Hippy Market where every Saturday people flock to San Carlos to be immersed in the glittering curiosities on display.
In peak season up to 20,000 people pass through its doors making it one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island. Read more
Es Broll de Buscastell Ibiza
The small hamlet of Buscastell can be found nestled away in the outer reaches of San Antonio between Santa Gertrudis and Sant Ines. It’s a tiny little place vacant of clubs, hotels, beaches and glittering souvenir shops.
There’s not a lot to be found there and that’s why it’s often overlooked by the visiting masses. There is one thing though that puts this little place on the map, an impressive 1500-year-old irrigation system that’s still fully functioning today. Read more
The Tastes of Ibiza
Ibiza is a tiny Island which means in the past it would’ve had to be pretty self-sustaining at times so we thought we’d bring you just a few of the tastes of Ibiza.
Although the land can look pretty dry and barren in the summer, it is surprisingly fertile. A closer look at the landscape will reveal an array of fruiting trees and wild herbs growing abundantly.
Over the years the Ibicencos have incorporated these Mediterranean flavours into interesting and tasty dishes unique to the island. Read more
A visit to Tanit’s Cave
Even if you haven’t a clue who Tanit is, I’m sure if you’re a regular visitor to the island then you would’ve caught her name in passing at some point.
Her legacy can be found all over the island in the names of Bars, Hotels, Restaurants, there’s even a driving school named in her honour.
Tanit is a Goddess, more specifically, she is the Goddess of Ibiza. It was the Phonecians, some of the first settlers on the island who brought her here way back in the fifth century BC. Read more
Ibiza In the Winter
The winter months here on Ibiza bring with them the feeling of peaceful isolation, a dramatic contrast to the swarming summer season. Most bars and restaurants are closed, the beaches and roads are empty and the population is reduced to a tiny trickle, compared to the constant heavy flow of people traffic in summer.
It’s quiet that’s for sure, and you certainly won’t find a party calendar or many options for a night out. Read more
