Hi guys! I’m back from Ibiza. I had an amazing time with my best friend, Ashley, and it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. I wasn’t planning on doing a recap post, but considering how exhausted I am (we only had 10 hours of total sleep over three nights) this is as much as I can come with right now.
For those of you who don’t know (and how could you not? haha), Ibiza is the party capital of the world. Ashley is a big party girl, and we used to go out dancing all the time back in the day. She doesn’t drink alcohol, which makes the nights a lot more enjoyable in my opinion. She is here in London for five weeks and she only wanted to go to one place…
We flew to Ibiza on Thursday evening. I have never been on a flight like that in my life! They had to stop the safety demonstration four times because people were making so much noise. Let’s just say everyone was excited. There wasn’t a single person under the age of 30 on that flight either.
We spent a couple of hours at our hotel room before heading out. We quickly adapted to the European lifestyle by having dinner at 12.30am. Most people don’t eat until 11pm at the very earliest.
I didn’t care what I ate on this trip at all. We only ate twice per day (intermittent fasting? ha!), so I just made sure I ate a lot to fuel all the dancing!
When we arrived at our first Ibiza nightclub, Eden, at 1.30am it was dead. I was a bit worried, but luckily things picked up quite soon after. Clubs open at midnight, but they are only busy from 2am to 7am. We made it to 6am on both nights we went out, which I thought was a pretty good effort for an old married lady like me!
We were staying in San Antonio, which is the main party area. There are seven superclubs on the island, but only two of them are in San Antonio. On our second night we ventured across the island to Pacha, will also happens to be the multi-award winning best club in the world.
This place was amazing! There were thousands of people there, and it was so packed you could hardly move. It had multiple rooms so we spent the majority of the time away from the main area.
Ibiza itself is pretty cheap. Our flights were only £150 (and we bought them fairly late), our hotel was 150 euros, and food and clothing are ridiculously cheap. But prepare to pay a lot for the clubs! Entry to Pacha was 50 euros, and a 300ml bottle of water is 10 euros at any club – so hydrate in advance!
Outside of the nightclubs, Ibiza is pretty amazing. I’ve never been to a European city I didn’t like though!
Our flight left at 1am on Sunday morning, so we took a break from dancing to spend the day at this gorgeous bar right on the water’s edge. We tanned for hours while listening to a brilliant DJ and having our one and only drink during the trip!
It was 41 degrees (106 Fahrenheit) – I was in heaven. Funny side story: when I was booking our accommodation, all of the reviews said to pay extra to have air conditioning or you won’t be able to sleep. I thought our room had it, but we only had a ceiling fan. Apparently it was enough though because Ash said I was sleeping with the blankets pulled up to my chin and my teeth were chattering! Keeping in mind that it was daylight while we were sleeping – I guess that’s the Australian in me coming out! HA!
All of the restaurants had these crazy looking ice cream sundaes on the menu so we had to try one. AMAZING.
Have you been to Ibiza before? I’m sure at least one of you has!
