Playing for Change Ibiza

September is a great month to be in Ibiza. The crowds are slowly dwindling, closing parties are in full swing and it’s also the month when charitable music festival, Playing for Change comes to the shores of Cala Llonga.

This international music festival has been running in Ibiza since 2011 and is a bit like a scaled down version of live aid. Each year, many different countries, host concerts on the same day to raise awareness for its cause. Read more

Animals of Ibiza

The animals of Ibiza are not an obvious feature in the landscape and could be completely overlooked if you’re not watching out for them. The lack of lush fields limits the creatures that can comfortably live here.

Throughout the ages, the island had a reputation for its safety, being free from any poisonous plants and animals such as snakes and scorpions. Read more

Portinatx Ibiza

Being the most northern point of Ibiza, Portinatx seems like a long way away from anywhere and almost isolated from the rest of the island.

The route to get there leads you through some of the most spectacular views of wild, untouched countryside. This is due to the north of the island being largely undeveloped and protected, to preserve its outstanding natural beauty. Read more

Freediving in Ibiza

In Ibiza, you’re never more than 15 minutes away from a beach, so it’s not surprising that there’s an incredible range of water sports on offer.

Twenty years ago aquatic activities were pretty limited but these days there’s a multitude of different ways for you to explore and frolic in the warm and crystal clear Mediterranean.

Some of us are naturally cautious of the water, reluctant to venture in too deep but others just dive on in there without a care and seem to have a natural affinity with the sea. Read more

Acrobosc Ibiza Woodland Adventure Park

Acrobosc Ibiza

The term hidden gem gets thrown around a lot these days but I think Acrobosc Ibiza Woodland Adventure Park, the assault course set high up in the pine trees of S’Argamassa, truly does deserve this title.

I’ve been living in Ibiza for six years now and I know the place pretty well so it’s always great to find something new to enjoy that doesn’t involve the beach, restaurant, clubs or the sea.

It’s a fantastic activity suitable for adults and children alike. You will be thrilled, excited and challenged as you swing through the trees and your confidence will be boosted while having a whole load of fun. Read more

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

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.

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
