Cala Salada Ibiza
We arrived in Ibiza last night just as the sun was setting over San Antonio and got ourselves settled in with Miki and all at the Hostal Marino.
Today instead of making a rush for the beaches or endless activities on offer or even just lazing by the pool we as a family decided to give something back to Ibiza. Read more

Care 4 Cats Ibiza
Whether you avoid them or fall in love with them, on holiday in Ibiza you cannot help but notice the amount of cats around the island.
Most are feral, roaming the streets and the countryside looking for food. Many are sick and many produce litter after litter of kittens increasing the Ibizan cat population exponentially.
In 2000 a UK registered charity was setup to help look after the cats of the island called Care 4 Cats Ibiza. Their main mission is to help control the ever increasing population of feral and abandoned stray cats on the island by trapping and neutering as many as possible, and then returning them back into the wild to stop the breeding cycle.
The magical island of Ibiza
A blog post by Martin this morning started me thinking about how you deal with the excesses that Ibiza has to offer and deal with the downside of those excess which can ultimately lead to losing your life.

Cairn energy were awarded four area blocks in the Gulf of Valencia in 2011 to explore for oil by the Spanish government. These blocks sit off the west coast of Ibiza.
