Ibiza

The trip to Ibiza came much unexpected. I had my itinerary all planned out for London and then last minute my friend asked me to go to Ibiza with him so without a plan, I just went! Normally when I do a trip, I do an extensive research on where to go, where to eat, and where to take photos, but since this was a last minute trip and I was staying with my friend, I didn’t plan out a whole itinerary.

Ibiza was surprisingly expensive, but the beach and the people were extremely friendly. It is a party island, so if you’re looking for nonstop partying, this is the place for you. I went to mostly beaches during my stay and had the most relaxing time. I wish I had remembered all the beaches I went, but the few I remembered were Cala Moli, Cala Vadella, Cala Tarida, Cala Salada, and Cala d’Hort. I really enjoyed Cala Vedella and Cala Moli. Cala Vedella had a lot of action going on and the beach was crowded. Cala Molí is a secluded beach between the resorts Cala Vadella and Cala Tarida that has the advantage of a beach club with its own pool. Set at the end of a 'torrent' (a cleft in the hillside) this pebbly beach has been declared a 'natural' beach by the San José Town Hall and means its beauty isn't spoiled with rows of sun loungers and parasols. It also means fewer tourists.

This is an excellent beach for snorkeling as the sea bed is quite rocky. The water is beautifully clear; perfect for spotting marine life, and the caves add an extra dimension.

I spent a night out in town where all the parties are and it was a lot of fun. It was definitely a different vibe from all the beaches and more of a party vibe with a lot of young people. One of the highlights of my trip here was catching the sunset by Es Vedra at Cala d’Hort. Es Vedra is said to be the third most magnetic spot on the planet and the home of the sirens and sea-nymphs who tried to lure Ulysses from his ship in Homer's Odyssey. It was a sight to remember.

I would definitely go back another time! Until then, here are some of the photos from the trip!

If you are planning a trip there, I highly recommend going through this beach guide. It provides a pretty great description of all the beaches- http://www.ibiza-spotlight.com/beaches_i.htm
