Ibiza in October

Ibiza in October

As much as all the talk of the moment is about closing parties and the season coming to an end it’s not too late for Ibiza 2016 with some great flight & hotel deals out there for October.

Ibiza in October is spectacular and is such a contrast to the madness of the summer months. There are a lot fewer people around so it is much quieter and laid back, plus it’s the month where the locals get to relax and enjoy their island.

The sea is still warm enough to swim in and the beaches are quieter meaning you can really get away from it and truly relax. (read more…)

Ibiza Closing Parties

Ibiza Closing Parties

All too soon summer turns to autumn and the Ibiza closing parties 2016 are announced. With only a few weeks to go we give you the low down of what’s on when and of course the all important line-ups.

This year’s closing parties will be especially poignant with Space in its current form closing for good at the end of the 2016 season after 27 years in Playa den Bossa.

So this is where we shall start and this is the closing party that everyone wants to attend and is definitely the hottest ticket in town for 2016. (read more…)

Live Music at Shenanigans Ibiza

Live Music at Shenanigans Ibiza

Shenanigans Ibiza, which first opened its doors in June of this year has become a real hit in the West End of San Antonio.

The Irish Bar has gone from strength to strength as the season has unfolded and is without, doubt one of our favourite bars in Ibiza, let alone in the West End.

One of the reasons, apart from the friendly staff, fantastic genuine Irish bar, great drinks including of course Guinness on tap, is their regular live music nights courtesy of Paddy Slater. (read more…)

Sunset Quad Bike Tour

Sunset Quad Bike Tour

E-move Ibiza has expanded their tours to offer a sunset quad bike tour which starts and ends in San Antonio.

We joined one of the tours a few weeks ago meeting outside the E-move shop on Av Doctor Fleming in the late afternoon sunshine.

After checking our driving licenses, fitting us with helmets and a quick training session into how to correctly drive the quad and of course how to stop, we all set-off. (read more…)

Celebrating turning 40 in Ibiza

Celebrating turning 40 in Ibiza

I have reached that age in life, yes the big 40 so to commemorate this milestone we are celebrating turning 40 in Ibiza.

I say we, this is double celebration with my oldest and best friend Tom who has also just turned 40. So along with our partners (the kids are away for the week with cadets) we are hitting up Ibiza for a week of exploring, celebrating and making memories to last us for the next 40 years.

So here it is our plan for what will be our ultimate 40th celebration as, well neither of us will ever get the chance to celebrate it again, there will of course be a few surprises along the way. (read more…)

The problem with August in Ibiza

The problem with August in Ibiza

You may have seen many comments on social media or heard people in bars complaining or moaning about the problem with August in Ibiza.

It has to be said for anyone who doesn’t live on the Island that moaning about Ibiza in August feels well just rude. To us non islanders Ibiza is paradise, endless sandy beaches, very few days of rain, incredible sunsets, the best clubs in the world, great food, great drinks and the list goes on.

For us outsiders it is unfathomable that anyone should ever complain about living in Ibiza, but let me let you into a little secret – August is truly hell on earth for the residents of Ibiza and here is why. (read more…)

San Antonio Fireworks

The Fiesta of Sant Bartomeu 2016 (St. Bartholomew) runs from the 18th of August to the 4th of September in San Antonio Ibiza.

It involves a programme of diverse activities, ranging from live music and culture events to sports competitions and entertainment, through to acts of a more traditional nature as well as a huge firework display.

So if you are in San Antonio over these dates do not be surprised to find all sorts of activities going on around the town and ensure you stop to enjoy a few of them. (read more…)

Ocean Mania Updated for 2016

Ocean Mania Early Bird Offer

We are all for saving a little money when in Ibiza here on the blog and Ocean Mania in San Antonio have announced a great early bird offer which helps do just that.

The water wipeout course located just off S’Arenal beach beside Ocean Beach is one of our firm favourites when in Ibiza with its obstacles and bouncy fun and we have lost many hours here with and without the kids.

This is truly an activity for all ages, all you need is to be a good swimmer and not afraid to fall in the water a few times. (read more…)
