Ibiza Bohemia (Classics)
About this deal
For such a tiny island (don’t forget, it’s 231 sq miles, that’s 6 times smaller than Majorca), it’s pretty incredible that throughout the summer each of its clubs bring in huge crowds day in, day out. If you want some seclusion, there are five beaches within walking distance of San Antonio’s golden sands. Cala Gracio is one of the best, with a gently-shelving shoreline, making it ideal for little ones who want to have a splash about in safe water. The focus is really on families and you’ll find child-friendly attractions, such as outdoor playground Acrobosc, within easy reach.
Join the local-produce scene each morning at Ibiza Town’s lively 19th-century Mercat Vell, which bursts with just-baked bread, fresh flowers, Balearic cheeses, and other organic island-sourced treats. Most Ibizan towns host their own weekly farmers' markets; one of the most exciting happens on Sunday mornings in Sant Joan, with musicians and craft stalls also cramming into the whitewashed village square. Consequently, it’s been home to everyone over the years, from creatives fleeing suppression to hippies on the hunt for limitless liberty – and while these days it’s probably most famous for its dazzling sunsets and thundering nightlife scene, that quintessential bohemian spirit lingers. Whether on a beach, a dancefloor, or a yoga mat, few are able to resist its unmistakable magic. Holidays to Menorca come in all shapes and sizes. From the larger, more popular resorts of Punta Prima, Cala’n Bosch and Cala’n Forcat along the southern coast to the Moorish city of Ciutadella in the west.Shopping is almost a national pastime on a Ibiza holiday, and Ibiza Town has plenty of shops where you can spend your holiday Euros. Head to the New Town and you’ll find 21st century shops glittering around squares peppered with outstanding restaurants. In the Old Town, things become far more traditional, with cobbled streets housing quirky boutiques and low-lit bars. The Old Town also acts as host to the region’s famous Hippy Market, which transforms the streets into a colourful carnival of sights, sounds, smells, and bargains! Clubbing season: The clubs reopen one by one for the season in May; Amnesia typically hosts the earliest party, while Privilege is the last to swing open its doors. Although this can change from year to year.
Along the coast is Santa Eulalia del Rio, an altogether more exclusive resort whose marina is lined with expensive yachts. Santa Eulalia: Those looking to experience Ibiza’s traditional side will love Santa Eulalia. As Ibiza’s third largest town, families tend to favour this tame resort for its great choice of accommodation. While its beach is perfect for days spent sand-castle building. Come evenings most holidaymakers tend to make a beeline for its palm-lined promenade thanks to its choice of restaurants dishing up authentic island eats. Behind it, there’s a long, palm-fringed promenade, which is ideal for wandering along and then watching one of Ibiza’s spectacular sunsets, while enjoying a relaxing drink.
By Discobus: From June till September, clubbers can take advantage of the night-time Discobus service that runs to the major clubs.
