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
Ibiza in August
Ibiza in August is the month, the month when the world, his wife, his children and his grandparents descend onto the island like a swarm of locusts.
To say it is busy is an understatement, from the moment you arrive with the queues for taxis at the airport, to getting a table at your favourite restaurant… there are just people everywhere.
Many who live and work on the island call it Angry August, as everyone seems to have lost their usual cool laid back demeanor, the work is that little bit harder, the weather that little bit hotter and the customers that little more demanding. Read more
Ibiza Super Club
Most if not all of us remember going to clubs in our younger years (80s and early 90s) and even being dragged out on the odd stag / hen do since those days.
The over driven speakers playing the latest cheesy chart hits one after the other, the drinks flowing and spilling, the insane shouting to be heard and the inevitable kebab on the way home. We all did it for a few years then we settled down got a real job, a mortgage a little one or two and the everyday humdrum began.
Ibiza in July
Ibiza in July is traditionally the start of the peak season for the island, with the start of the month being relaxed and laid back and as the traditional summer holidays begin towards the end it is much busier and truly the peak of the season as August approaches.
It is a great month to visit because of this though as early – mid July the weather is hot, the waters are warm and without fail everything that’s going to open this season is well and truly open. 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
