IBIZA

NATURAL STATE. 

You're on the bus or off the bus. When coming to Ibiza you can do it two ways. Nightclubs, flashy, feasts or Gypset, chilled out, beachy peachy keen. I consider a bit of both to ensure maximum fulfillment. Founded in 654, by Phoenicians, Ibiza is a Unesco World Heritage Site, the island is the largest of the Balaeric Islands of Spain and is ten times larger than Manhattan Island.

DO. RIDE CAPTAIN RIDE

Explore the island by car, there are beaches, cafes, shops, Es Vedra is good place to start, a magnetic rock shrouded in mystery and positive energy. Roll down the windows, feel the salt of Ibiza on your hair and your face and splurge on paella.

STAY. AT HOME

As I stayed with friends on my first visit to the island, I have no solid recommendations, however from what I have heard, it is best to rent a home or cottage on AirBnb, with all the hustle and bustle one needs a sanctuary is this go all night town.
