Ibiza Things to Do

  • Boat Trips

    Speedboat ‘AIR’. Skipper Neil Wood. I took 3 friends out on Neil’s boat AIR in August 2008 and can honestly say I've never had such a blast. Neil took us everywhere we wanted to go - knowledge of the island was awesome. After a cool morning just blazing around, visiting bays and doing some water skiing and wakeboarding (proper good instruction!!!),...

  • Hippy Market

    Back in the 1960s, Ibiza became home to a vibrant community of artists and musicians who appreciated the island’s stunning natural beauty and its laid-back pace of life. Where traces of the hippy movement have faded elsewhere in Europe, the spirit of that time is still very much a part of contemporary Ibizan culture, and this is exemplified in the...

  • Sunsets

    To tell the truth - i was a kind of dissappointed: in my imagination it looked completely different - BUT there is no beach, only some stony rocks, the surrounding is by far not nice, the drinks are expensive... but what makes this spot so unique os the people, peacefully sitting there, drinking something, looking at the sun and listening to the...

Ibiza Restaurants

  • Shanti Shakti

    5 out of 5 stars

    When Shanti Shakti first opened it`s doors in 2001, there were four hand written menus and not many more dishes to choose from, now, in 2006, things are looking even better. The menu isn`t the biggest in the world, many other restaurants will try to offer the full array of Indian dishes and this usually means a lot of corner cutting, but here the...

  • Coastline Cafe

    This restaurant overlooks the pool of the Cafe below and faces out over the sea towards the sunset. The atmosphere is far more exclusive than other restaurants on sunset strip, and due to the nautical railings, has the feel of eating on board one of the expensive cruise yachts you'll see moored in Ibiza towm harbour. The decor and table settings...

  • Pacha (Club)

    First off, Pacha is the only club to be open ALL YEAR ROUND. That being said, it was one of the first and easily one of the bests. It's a well-known landmark as it is located by the marina in Ibiza town. There are now franchises of this place, but Ibiza is where the true magic started. It contains an abundance of rooms and you probably want to try...

    We were badly assaulted by a bouncer in amnesia as we were leaving the club. The bouncer was rude and I asked him not be then he swore at my partner, then jumped on his back pinned him down on the floor and smacked his head into the floor. I tried to get the bouncer off and he hit me and I was out for a bit. When I came around other bouncers were...

  • Cars, Mopeds and Motorcycles

    We hired a car in the UK to collect and leave at the airport - brand new (5 Kilometres on the clock!), and £14 a day. We went everywhere - to small isolated coves, great beaches, into the hills - great. Parking in St Eulalia and Eivissa can be a challenge though....especially if you have a hefty excess on your hire car! It was cheaper, and much...

  • Wonderful local shop

    The shop is a tiny one but it's full of locally made goods such as salts, oils, soaps and these delicate blown glass lizards filled with Ibiza sand. I bought one for myself and some salt to bring home as a memento of my trip here. I noticed that the owner was wearing a very interesting pair of sandals. She pointed me to the shop where she got it...

    Hi everyone, I am a long time member of VT and have no agenda here except to spare my fellow traveller and club lovers from the experiences we had to endure at the hands of this company.

  • A once beautiful place ruined.

    Having visited San Antonio bay over the last 28 years, i have to say that for me this once little gem has now been completly ruined by the youth of today. The constantly drunk youth, the wide eyed drug taking clubbers (who now reside in the bay aswel as the town), the over inflated prices of everything, it all makes for a grim time. I have my...

    Great if you like hoards of drunken Brits marauding around the streets looking for members of the opposite sex in a drunk enough state not to reject them, puddles of vomit and urine (I'm not exaggerating!) karaoke bars and Irish theme pubs. The morning light brings a place for these people to return for their full English Breakfast at Koppas Cafe...

    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! If you must do this, try flying close to the sun...maybe your parachute will melt? At least consider how annoying this...

  • wristbands for entry into nightclubs

    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...
