Image
Looking for somewhere relaxed to watch the sunset ? Or looking for a great beach front restaurant in the resort of Port des Torrent. Well Deeva Sunset Beach Site (formally, we believe, the site of Imagine Restaurants Beach Bar).

Salads, sharing plates, beers, cocktails and wines are all on offer – dig your toes in the sand and enjoy the sea & sunset views.
Port des Torrent is located on the west coast of Ibiza between San Antonio Bat & Cala Bassa. Head by car or scooter, or alternatively take the AquaBus ferry from San Antonio, Cala Bassa or Cala Tarida

Ibiza In February

Image
Ibiza in February is when the island starts to spring back to life after, what is normally, am subdued January…but then much of Europe (ski resorts excluded) are pretty subdued in January!
Many restaurants close in January – this is the one chance of the year for the owners to give their staff and themselves a well-earned break after a long hot summer & busy Christmas, so February sees many restaurants re-open.
The weather in February is a mixed bag – you can get some beautiful Spring-like sunny days & beautify sunsets…but Ibiza needs the rain in the winter & it will rain in February...often heavily, but temperatures are, on average. 5 to 10 degrees warmer than you will experience in London, for example. We can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be waking up to mornings of scraping the ice of your car windscreen! Although very rarely Ibiza has experiences snow! albeit for a few hours.
It is not uncommon to find people sitting on the beach in their swimwear in February…y…

The Best Hotel In Ibiza?

Image
Finca Can Xuxu Ibiza - Summer 2018





Where is the best place to stay in Ibiza? Which is the best hotel in Ibiza?
These questions are frequently asked to us by our customers, family & friends – not an easy question to answer as “best”  depends on a number of factors including facilities & location and is likely to be quite personal.

For some people a large hotel dripping with services & facilities that you probably won’t use very much may well tick all the boxes (I’ve yet to see a busy hotel gym on my travels, and as for an onsite hairdresser…) but for others spending time close to noisy children (and noisier adults) may not be high on the priority list when thinking about your next Ibiza holiday.





However if you are looking for a small, boutique place to stay then you really should check out the (almost legendary) Finca Can Xuxu. This former family home of the owner is now one of the best kept secrets in Ibiza (as much of a secret you can have these days with Trip Advisor, b…

Ibiza in Winter

Image
Ibiza in winter is a very different destination compared to Summer; more relaxed and, although we doubt you will be stripping down to your swimming costume (or less). there is still plenty to do..and without the summer crowds
Temperatures, on average, are 10 degrees warmer than in northern Europe so it’s a great opportunity to escape the snow & ice
Restaurants:
There are a number of great beach restaurants that stay open in the winter, including:
Yemanya at Cala Jondal (next to Blue Marlin) open every day http://www.yemanjaibiza.com/ Cotton Beach Club at Cala Tarida – normally open Friday to Sunday http://cottonbeachclub.com/web/ Tanit Beach Club (normally open at weekends)  http://www.tanitbeachibiza.com/home/

Orchestral Manoeuvres in Ibiza

Image
When in 2015 Pete Tong collaborated at the annual “proms at the Royal Albert Hall in London many people thought it was a crazy idea. The proms, a British tradition more commonly associated with the highbrow set was not ready for Ibiza… perish the thought… but what a success...and “such fun” as they may well say in the Kensington borough of London which is home to the Royal Albert Hall – mire used to classic music than Ibiza classics
Forward wind 2 years and Peter tong brings the Heritage Orchestra to Ibiza and will pay tonight (Saturday 5th August) at Destino Pacha Ibiza Resort
The event s to mark 50 years since the opening of Pacha in Ibiza.

San Juan Festival (Noche de San Juan)

Image
The Summer Solstice (longest day / shortest night) in Ibiza is, of course, a reason for celebration. The day, but mostly the night, is known as the fiesta of San Juan as well as Noche de San Juan (San Juan night)
In 2017 the longest day is Friday 23rd June
In 2018 the longest day will be Thursday 21st June
Many towns & villages in Ibiza celebrate this night, including Santa Eulalia, Santa Gertrudis & San Juan. If you are in Ibiza then a great place to hear do is either Talamanca or Figueretas, the sandy bays on either side of Ibiza Town
At sundown the locals light small bonfires on the beach (normally not allowed!)
Music, fire, dancing, drinking & eating are the order of the day. If you plan on eating in a restaurant then we recommend booking early as restaurants get very busy as the locals come out to celebrate this day. Many restaurants run special events and menus. As with any Spanish fiesta there is always a great atmosphere. 
In addition, San Juan village (also known…
