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

One of the best loved activities in San Antonio Ocean Mania Ibiza has a new course for 2018 and it is truly spectacular.

Drums at Sunset
This is one event that we have been wanting to attend for many years and finally, we got the chance to experience the drums at sunset on Benirras Beach along with photographer Natasha Marshall and fellow blogger Zoe Newlove.
The ritual goes back many years to Sunday, August the 18th 1991 when many hundreds of people gathered to protest about the Gulf War. This became known locally as The Day of the Drums.
This then grew into an annual event attracting thousands of peace lovers and hippies from across the world sending out the message that Ibiza is all about peace. Read more
Explore the beauty of Ibiza
Ibiza may only be known as a party island to many people but it is also a beautiful place to explore with amazing views and stunning locations.
On our latest trip to the island we decided to enlist the help of our dear friend and islander Sofi to show us a few of the sights of Ibiza that we’d always wanted to go to but never knew how scattered along the south west coast and close to San An.
Our first stop was Sa Talaia, the highest point on the island. At 475 meters high the views are phenomenal and you get a true 360 degree view. Read more
Cafe del Mar Lounge
Leaving Ibiza after a few days, a week or two or even longer is, without doubt, one of the lowest parts of everyone’s lives and the low point of the holiday.
Leaving behind the magic, the music, the good times is hard but all is not lost, well not at the airport at least.
Formerly the F*** me I’m Famous Lounge this year sees Gates 9 and 10 rebranded as the Cafe Del Mar Lounge. Read more
The Oldest and Biggest Hippy Market
One of the mainstays of the island are the hippies who travelled across to the island in the 1960s and started the revolution that has made Ibiza what it is today.
As much as the hedonistic lifestyle is not the first thing to come to mind when you think of Ibiza, the Hippy Markets are thriving, Read more
Sunset Strip San Antonio Ibiza
The Sunset Strip is, without doubt, one of my favourite places to go on Ibiza to watch the sun sink beneath the waves.
It is an iconic setting, just away from the main San Antonio harbour and is easily reached on foot along the coastal footpath.
Es Vedra ibiza
Es Vedra is one of those unique spots in the world that takes your breath away every time you see it.
Located just off the coast of Ibiza near Cala d Hort, the huge limestone rock towers up from the crystal clear sea and is shrouded in mystery and legend.
Dalt Villa Ibiza
One of the most famous landmarks of Ibiza is Dalt Villa an Acropolis dating back to Phoenician times.
Over the centuries many invaders / settlers have added their own touch and today it is a thriving walled town with bars, restaurants, shops and quirky corners all ready for exploring.
