It seems to be the only point of discussion at the moment across the island between locals, business owners, friends and even visitors; is the Ibiza party coming to an end and the dance floor starting to empty.
It is true the island seems quiet so far this summer, although you may not believe it when sat in a traffic jam in any of the major resorts or trying to find a space on your favourite beach in the mid afternoon. Read more
Wow what a month it has been for news and announcements on the white isle so here is our Ibiza News roundup March 2018 bringing you up to date with all that’s been going on.
We start with the most contentious issue which is the West End in San Antonio, where it was confirmed by San Antonio council that more measures will be brought in this year to try and reduce the noise in the area.
The biggest change will see the bars, restaurants and takeaways across the 5 streets that make up the West End having to close 2 hrs earlier at 3am instead of 5am. Read more

Plans have been announced to connect Cala Gracio to Port des Torrent along the coast with a walkway and cyclepath.
The councils of San Antonio and Sant Josep have put forward the proposal to reinvigorate the coast along an 8km stretch to provide continuity and ease of access with the creation of a promenade and bike lane.
The project also includes extensions and improvements to the existing piers to improve maritime traffic as well as other visual improvements. Read more
The council yesterday met with traders and residents to put forward plans to pedestrianise the Old Town of San Antonio, Ibiza.
The plan is to pedestrianise the streets adjacent to the Plaza de la Iglesia and the West End, as well as to restrict traffic in other arteries of the centre during the summer months.
The closure will also include the Old Town, between Ramón and Cajal streets and Calle del Mar. The idea was trialled last year by the council, when between June and October, the streets of the Old Town surrounding the church, as well as others in the West End, were closed to traffic from 12 noon.

Not just alcohol, which is already banned but all drinks including juice, water, milkshakes, coffee in fact anything of liquid form in a container and if caught you could face a fine of 750 Euros.
The reason is to try and curb the amount of people drinking alcohol in the streets and public spaces which is causing disruption and annoyance within the town. Read more
