Ibiza is slowly awakening to its most blossomed fashion, but there are few weekends left till it all begins and that is why we’d like to give you some tips how and where to survive the tense season expecting!
Shop the Whole Day
Most of the shops are already open by now, so enjoy the shopping spree to the fullest! Dive into the small boutiques of local designers, start with authentic hand-made leather accessories by 07800 Ibiza, try on some cool rock chic t-shirts from Raven’s View, then choose your night outfit from sexy Kurru Kurru dresses and the finca-style “house of wonder” Es Cucons La Tienda is definitely worth your trip to Sant Gertrudis to get anything you can imagine!
But if you are not into the hedonistic style that Ibiza is so famous for, doesn’t matter, there are many international shops also, from the luxury ones to mass-market brands. Go check the Vara del Rey area or the street Avinguda D´Isidor Macabich in the Ibiza City.
Visit Hippie Market Las Dalias
This place is heaven for shopping as well, so if you wonder why we didn’t mention it in the section before, the reason is: because Las Dalias offers far and far more than just a few fancy things to try on. This hippy market is like a whole different world living with its own dynamics.
Stroll through hundreds of stands showcasing jewelry pieces of any kind and size, old but not forgotten books and records, white flirty summer dresses and colorful scarves, antiques and unique art works or hand-made toys, while listening to the live band from the front bar pumping up the cheerful atmosphere. And when you immerse deeper into the laughingly chatting crowds, you’ll find another, now more electronic, music station run by energetic DJs. And if you are hungry or thirsty during the long browsing, just stop by one of the few rural bars or restaurants, have an ice-cold beer and a calamari bocata to power up before the exciting evening! The market changes into slightly different artistic fusion, but still preserving the pulsating energy from the day, presenting themed parties where all dine, dance and have lots and lots of fun!
Wine and Dine
In April the options broaden as the front runners start to open their doors and kitchens again. If the weather is nice take the advantage of not yet overcrowded beach venues like Yemanja or Atzaro Beach. But if you are willing to go around the island a bit more, try some inland restaurants like La Paloma, a lovely vegetarian place set in a flowery garden, or something exotic like Bambuddha serving the perfect sushi variations accompanied with delicious fruity drinks. And if you were a fan of Italian cuisine, Cicale or Il Giardinetto would be a great choice for some homemade pasta and crusty pizzas. But to be honest you have really so many delicious options to choose from, so get inspired a little by our weekly Friday posts on the best restaurants Ibiza has to offer.
Pamper your Mind and Body
But if you prefer something more active, maybe a yoga session would be a great idea. Book your place for Power yoga or Hot Yoga and stretch your body with highly experienced teachers.
Still not enough action? Try Fit Strong class, based on a military training to gain physical and mental strength, or rent a bike and ride around the island’s hills to speed up your beat a little bit more.
Have Some Family Action
Spending some family time in Ibiza? The island loves the energy kids have and try to boast it to the maximum. Either in mom fitness classes with babies, dance classes or open days at San Lorenzo or Aquarium Cap Blanc, where you’ll have definitely so much fun!
It doesn’t have to be 30 degrees outside to enjoy the Ibiza beaches! The island’s varied coastline provides something for everyone! If you want to do some walking or exercising, go to the Playa d’en Bossa, a two kilometers sandy stretch. For the windsurfers there are a few hotspots like Cala Nova, Es Torrent or Es Cavallet where when the perfect weather conditions hit, all kinds of surfer pros pop up. In case of a romantic getaway, drive to the bohemian Benirras offering one of the most beautiful sunset views, to Cala Conte, Cap D’es Falco or Cala D’Hort overlooking the mystical Es Vedera.
There is no reason to cry after huge summer parties! Although the nightlife now is very different and a bit limited, there still is one! During the weekends many clubs and bars are open and ready to party, so put on some fabulous outfits and go have a dinner with drinks and dance your night away in Pacha for instance. It’s not that crowded at this time of a year and what’s more, the music and drinks are still great!
