The West End in 2018
This year we saw some monumental changes made by San Antonio council to the times that bars were allowed to have their terraces open and when they had to close. So honestly, what effect has it had and what is the West End Ibiza like in 2018?
For those that don’t know the West End is not Ibiza. It does not define Ibiza as much as the British media would like you to think.
It is actually defined as only 4 or 5 streets in San Antonio just off the waterfront and, for the past 30 plus years, it has been the epicentre of where many of the first timers to Ibiza head for a great laugh, cheap drinks and a choice of bars and venues to while the early hours away until 5am.

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
My love affair with Ibiza
My love affair with Ibiza and this blog began by pure chance, about 10 years ago a dear friend of mine gave me some podcasts to listen to which included Trance Around The World as it was then by Above and Beyond and I loved it and became a fan of theirs.
A couple of years later we got the opportunity to see Above and Beyond live at Brixton Academy in London and had one of the best nights ever. We had our children young so clubbing and going to gigs had never featured in our lives but from the euphoria of that night we were desperate to see Above and Beyond again.
We looked through their tour dates and the only one which worked childcare and work wise was Amnesia in Ibiza flying out of Bournemouth on Monday and returning Friday with the gig itself on Thursday night so we booked without hesitation. Read more

Alcohol on Ibiza flights
In the last few weeks, we have all seen the headlines about unruly behaviour onboard aircraft even flights being diverted so is it time to ban drinking on Ibiza flights? or because of the irresponsible few limit or ban drinking in airports all together?
This problem is nothing new and doesn’t just apply to Ibiza flights several other well known holiday destinations have had disruptive passengers over recent years but the common denominator does seem to be alcohol. Read more
Anthropology of Ibiza
With the infamous white isle being most known for her party culture, super clubs and music scene, it is quite hard to grasp the idea of there being an actual history and culture to the island.
Yet, if you look carefully as you drive around the island, you can see scattered churches, lighthouses, wells and ruins of times gone by.
If we go right back to the beginning, the first ever settlements on Ibiza can be dated back as far as 3000 years ago, with the Carthaginians discovering Ibiza in 654 B.C. Ibiza town is, in fact, one of the earliest towns to be discovered in Europe. Read more
