I know back in July I said that I was trying to get back on track with the blog posts, but to be honest work commitments have not left much time – sorry!
So I didn’t get to go anywhere in the summer mainly due to not being organised and not booking time off work before my colleagues beat me to it- #typical
However I aim to remedy this in the next few months and I started with going to Ibiza at the beginning of this month!
Myself and two friends took a disgustingly early flight (5:30am!!!)from Gatwick to the sunny and beautiful Island of Ibiza; for a long weekend of sunbathing, drinking and dancing away at a couple of super clubs.
This was my first trip to Ibiza and to be honest I didn’t go with too many expectations, but I am happy to say I had the best time ever!!!! From my research I knew that drinks and club entry would be expensive and it would be super hot even in September – I hate the heat!
We stayed at this lovely hotel called the Ebano Select Apartments in Playa d’en Bossa which is only a ten minute taxi ride from the airport and is in easy walking distance to a few of Ibiza’s best super clubs.
We decided on our first night that we would ease ourselves into clubbing and headed to Ushuaia to see Tinie Tempah. It was such a great way to start the trip off, not only was the music good, but everyone we encountered was friendly and unpretentious! OK so a round of drinks for three people set me back 60 euro’s a pop, but with the amount of alcohol the bar tender poured in each cup it equated to at least 3.5 shots 🙂
For our Saturday night adventure (which didn’t start till 2 am) we decided to head over to Space which is one of Ibiza’s oldest and largest clubs – opened in 1989! Due to it’s age it does feel a little run down, but again the people are friendly and the music was really good! The only thing that had me a little miffed was this girl being sick right next to me! Her poor boyfriend repeatedly had to apologise to me, as she was consecutively sick six times !!!!!!!!!
After puke gate and a few hours of non stop dancing I decided to leave to the club at around 5:30am, luckily our hotel was only a ten minute walk away and I felt pretty safe walking back by myself. However my friends partied until the club closed at around 6:30/7am – they are pretty hardcore!
On our final night in Ibiza we decided to skip going to a club, as we had a super early flight back to London – 04:35am!!! Instead we headed to Cafe Mambo in San Antonio to watch the sunset. I would definitely recommend making a reservation as it can be up to a 2 hour wait for a table and you risk missing the sunset!
As the sun goes down they started to play chill vibes like Groove Armada’s At the river which totally bought me back to my childhood watching Shipwrecked!
FYI – when we booked, we were told that each person had to spend a minimum of 60 euros, something that is easily done as the drinks and the food are not cheap, but well worth it. I highly recommend the Fillet Steak and Cava Sangria!
The trip to Ibiza was too short, but it was defiantly a great way to end a rainy , boring summer. I am totally going back in 2017 and plan to explore more of the island!
Thanks for reading!
