  • Hippy Market

    Ibiza Things to Do

    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...

  • Shanti Shakti

    5 out of 5 stars

    Ibiza Restaurants

    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...

  • The Ferry from Ibiza

    Isla de Formentera Transportation

    There is no airport in Formentera. Only in Ibiza.So if you fly to Ibiza you still have to take the ferry to Formentera. There are two ferry companies. Round trip is always cheaper than buying twice one way ticket.The journey is beautiful, especially when you see the castle of Ibiza from the sea.

  • By the sea cafeteria and restaurant

    Isla de Formentera Restaurants

    This cafeteria and restaurant is very well situated in the beach Migjorn. The owners are from Leon, from the town on Ponferrada, a place that is crossed by the pilgrims making the Camino de Santiago. I did not have lunch there but it was very popular and served mainly fish. I used to drink coffee with ice and a beer (or two) every day that I went...

    Pollensa Things to Do

    The Chapel of Calvari (Eglesia del Calvari) woult test any infidel's faith with the 365 steps tha lead up to it from the central square at Carrer del Ombra. Be aware also that the stairss are not suitable for taking in one stride - nor really two! - so it was a kind of step and a half on the way up!Eglesia del Calvari is an unremarkable chapel, but...

  • Pa Amb Oli

    Cala Millor Restaurants

    This local restaurant is recently opened and is already a popular place with the locals, Spanish and British. The Pa amb oli menu is probably one of the most extensive I've seen. They also do Tapas, menus and Majorcan dishes. I tried the cheese and Serrano Pa amb oli. and really enjoyed it although the portion could have been a bit larger.

The Tapas here are of a reasonable portion and the waiting staff never forget to deliver.The menu is straight...

Along the way you will see numerous orange and lemon trees.Once in the port you will notice a beach where you can swim and the marina...

    San Antonio Abad Things to Do

    Of course the most popular thing to do in San Antonio is to visit the Sunset strip and watch the spectacular sunset from there. You have two options, find a spot along the beach and enjoy it for free or choose a good seat at one of the famous café/bars and do it in luxury (have in mind that they will overcharge you even for a bottle of water).Most...

    Mahón Things to Do

    This town gate is the only part left of the ancient town wall. It's a typical medieval architecture, dating from the 14th century. I'm pretty confused why this gate is called "pont" as that usually means "bridge", but maybe it has a different or additional meaning in Catalan.The gate is in one of the side roads, and unfortunately it's not...
