    Paramotors

    by JulesH Updated Oct 8, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The guys on parachutes with huge noisy fans attached to the back zooming along sunset strip sounding like demented wasps just as the sun is going down and everyone's trying to chill out! This is noise pollution of the worst kind!

    Unique Suggestions: If you must do this, try flying close to the sun...maybe your parachute will melt?

    Fun Alternatives: At least consider how annoying this could be for other people and don't delude yourself that they think it's as great as you do!

    wristbands for entry into nightclubs

    by yma123 Written Nov 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    guys/gals!!!

    beware of the promotors offering you "so called FREE" wristbands - most of them are half price which is 20-30euro... so you get all the way to the front of the club - thinking you have free entry BUT you have to pay 20-30euro... you are all the way there cause they told you that it was free, so in the end, you still go in & the promoter has done well!

    check what colours the free ones are... usually yellow is and orange or green is half price or visa versa...

    Unique Suggestions: We had a gal tell us the wrist bands were for free (these were for Space) - but when we got there it was 25euro! oh well.. we still saved 25 euro I guess!!!

    Fun Alternatives: check what colours the free ones are... usually yellow is and orange or green is half price or visa versa...

    Beware the beach vendors

    by kammeres Written Oct 23, 2006

    As with any resort area, folks will come up to you and try to sell you a myriad of items. I encountered a young Spanish girl selling watches. Her English was limited but I was able to make out her main selling point, "si se cae en el agua, nada va a pasar" her way of saying they were waterproof. I didn't want to put one to the test, but it was a nice day, I was in a good mood and she seemed a nice girl, so I picked out a watch and gave her the equivalent of 5 pounds in pesetas. Watch worked for about one day after my departure from Ibiza and just up and quit. Oh well, chalk up another victim.

    Unique Suggestions: If you're not interested in what vendors have to sell, gently refuse. No need to make a scene unless the vendor gets overly insistent. If it's their livelihood, they'll not want negative attention focused on them. They'll get the point. There are many, many other prospective clients.

    Be Aware at beaches

    by DPando Written Jul 11, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be aware at beaches i hadnt any problem in those days but in the main and most crowded beaches (closer to Ibiza town) take a look to your bag just in case there are some snatchers

    Unique Suggestions: that not he case ..that beach is cala xarraca ... a family spot far away from massive beaches as Cala d'en Bossa, ses salines ... talamanca..

  • Do not shop in the port or by the beach!

    by klubkidd80 Written May 3, 2005

    Ibiza is pretty small..and of course, if you go there, you'll wanna buy some souvenirs to take home with you. Word of advice: save your shopping for the stores that are well clear of the paseo maritimo and or on the road heading to Playa D'en Bossa. You can walk further up from the beach and find more beach type stores offering similar or identical goods for much less. And as far as Paseo Maritimo and the port goes, keep walking up for the shops. The further away from the Port you get, the less ridiculous the prices. Be warned though, Ibiza on a whole is very expensive.

    Sunset St(rip-off)!!

    by C_L_T Written Oct 5, 2004

    The sunset from the bars along here is nothing special...especially when you get a day-trippers boat moored right in front of the bars and the constant stream of paragliders!! And the drinks are expensive like everywhere else!.....there are plenty of better spots to watch the sunset

    Unique Suggestions: Drink before you leave and don't be too disappointed when your perfect sunset pics are ruined by the great hulk of a boat infront of you or some blokes dangling feet!! Enjoy the music!

    Fun Alternatives: Hire a boat and drop anchor in front of Sunset Strip!!....cheaper booze, you can still hear the music, uninterupted views and everyone else will be dead jealous and want to be out there with you!!!...just don't ask about the price!!

    Do not go in August!!!

    by Carmela71 Written Jun 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Best time to go to Ibiza is in June and September when there is less people, and normally you get the opening and closing parties and in many occasions free entrances to the clubs.

    The weather is sunny and warm and not too hot. But you can also try to go in winter, but it is a different style.

    August like in most of the Spanish coast places, is too full, too hot and prices are double than normal, so if you can avoid that month much better. And I forgot about the taxisý they are even more difficult to find LOL

    Drink Prices

    by Carmela71 Written Jun 14, 2004

    If I though Uk was expensive, when I first arrived here and we paid a drink we got more and more surprised LOL, ok it is not true, we knew what we where going to pay, but if you pay 30 Euros for 4 drinks, you expect the drink in a glass not in a plastic drink as it happened on Mambo Cafýý

    Ready made skatepark? (2003)

    by Steve-H Written Jan 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Formerly a dolphinarium it was thankfully abandoned some years ago but the whole place was left intact even the grandstand, we stumbled across it by accident, there are no fences to stop you falling in so i won`t even bother telling you where it is.
    With a few tons of cement to put a radius at the bottom this place could be a skateboarders paradise, imagine skating in Ibiza, when would you sleep?
