A Modern Girl’s Guide To… Ibiza
Without fail, Ibiza is annually one of the top 5 holiday destinations for us Brits. That means, statistically speaking, that there’s a good chance you may be heading there yourself over the coming weeks. Situated just of the coast of Valencia, Ibiza finds itself in the Balearic Islands and is known as being the party capital of the world. Forget those horrifying stories of “Brits Abroad” – step away from the boozy streets of San Antonio’s infamous strip and there’s a magical island to discover. With the help of some Island experts, we’ve got everything you need to stay cool, look hot and make it a holiday to remember.
YOU MUST GO HERE…
Pacha is one of the world’s super clubs, a popular franchise and an Ibiza institution. Pacha Ibiza’s Artistic and Production Director Jess Capaz has been living on the island for 12 years. When she isn’t working, she’s enjoying the sea, spending time with friends and immersing herself in Island vibes.
Here’s her must-visit spots for Ibiza virgins and the well-travelled alike.
The Best Beach
Es Portitxol is one of the most unspoilt coves on the island. It is located in the North, behind the city of San Miguel – it’s perfect to escape the world!
A Day Away
Surrounded by pine-forested hills, the sandy bed and turquoise waters of Cala Salada are among the most enticing on the island. Hire a day boat and enjoy the most wonderful day of your trip.
Pacha’s Must See Night
Every day is a new experience, you can get the darkest night at Mosaic with Maceo Plex, to the real Ibiza party at Flower Power. You also can travel to the future with Martin Solveig and My House or to Paris with Bob Sinclar and Paris by night. Immerse yourself in the four worlds of Insane, the luxury of F*** Me I’m Famous and unadulterated fun with Solomun and Solomun +1.
Best viewpoint for Es Vedra
It has to be the Pirate Tower. I believe in myths and legend so I think Es Vedra is one of the most magnetic spots on the planet – right after the north pole and Bermuda Triangle, apparently!
The Ultimate Hangover Cure
Hands down it’s got to be a detox juice in Destino, enjoyed with the best view of Dalt Villa.
Best Way To Explore
Spend the day exploring some of the markets such as Las Dalias, eat Paella in Cala d´Hort and finish the day having a dinner in Lío Cabaret Club Restaurant. Bliss.
