  2. 5 Reasons to Visit Ibiza in The Fall

    Leave a Comment

    Ah, autumn. It’s what makes the end of summer bearable, with all that it brings the White Isle: mild temperatures, less tourists and competitive prices.

    Here are few suggestions to make the most of the fall season in Ibiza:

    Heated Pool

    As the evenings start to get a little cooler, the swimming pools do become a little fresher. That’s why we include some beautiful villas with heated pools in our portfolio. There’s no better way to keep the chill at bay than a dip into warm waters.

    Glorious Autumn Sunlight

    Ibiza’s old town with its cobbled streets, hidden alleyways and old building seems to look even more romantic in the fading afternoon light. The low angle of the sun bathes the island in a romantic golden light. Sunsets are usually accompanied by some clouds that make them even more colourful and interesting – The photography lovers are so lucky!

    Enjoying the Beaches & the Sea

    Autumn is a great time of the year to enjoy less-packed beaches and the turquoise Mediterranean sea. While the evenings become cooler, the days are still warm and the sea is likely to be at its best. Water activities are perfect to practice in October and November. Find out more information about diving, kayaking and sailing.

    Outdoor Activities

    The fall season brings pleasant temperatures which creates the ideal conditions to practice sports outdoor such as hiking, running and cycling. Here in Ibiza there are many established routes for outdoor activities, furthermore, there are many businesses that organise group tours and event – Here are few links with more information: Walking, Cycling and Horse-riding.

    Tasty Food & Wine

    Autumn is here and harvest is coming. Ibiza might not be as famous as Napa Valley or the wineries in France, but Ibiza’s wine is not less delicious! If you are interested, we can suggest a wine tour and vineyards you should visit. The months of October, November and December are also very special to Ibizan native peoples because they celebrate “La Matanza”, an historical tradition of the island, from which is made the tasty “butifarra” and “sobrasada” (cured spiced sausages).

    Leave a Comment

    The beautiful Mediterranean sea with its turquoise waters has been attracting millions of tourists to Ibiza each year – after all sun, sea and sand are three cliché reasons why many people come on holiday here!

    This time, we will focus on the second point: the sea. Here we’ve rounded up our top 3 activities to discover the beauty of Ibiza offshore.

    Kayak

    Enjoy paddling around Ibiza’s stunning rocky coastline from one secluded bay to another. Revel in the hidden treasures you may find on a tour into secret caves, manoeuvre around the magnetic Es Vedra rock or watch the sun setting on the horizon. There are a number of adventure tours available for all levels and provided the water is as calm as normal, Ibiza is a safe place for family trips. We recommend Kayak Ibiza, the islands largest and most established Kayak company. Speak with Lauren or Paolo for a three hour tour, whether bespoke for your group or while joining a larger group, makes for a great excursion…and then laze on the beach on your return to sooth some tired arms!

    Diving

    Diving is one of the most freeing and exciting adventures and when you are here, how could you resist diving into Ibiza’s crystal clear waters? It’s the perfect way to explore the rich and colourful underwater world. There are many organized tours around the island and the mild water temperatures make for truly optimal diving. Punta Dive is the island’s largest dive company and has three dive centre locations on the island with top-notch facilities and equipment are on offer. Alternatively, Big Blue Ibiza is a small dive centre in the south west of the island right on the beach at Cala Vadella from where you can visit local dive sites.

We can offer the perfect each adventure on board of our beautiful yacht – Aurora is based on the island’s west coast, by far the prettiest to explore and calmest to navigate, with an abundance of sandy beaches and hidden coves that you can only experience by boat. Visit some of the finest beach restaurants or have a delicious picnic on-board, the choice is yours. Is just one charter enough?

  5. Top 3 Outdoor Activities To Discover Ibiza’s Inland Beauty

    Leave a Comment

    You will ask yourself when isn’t there a good time to go to Ibiza? Even if the White Isle is known mainly for it’s beautiful beaches and the parties of the summer, late summer and autumn are still very good seasons to enjoy the island – especially if you love the outdoor life.

    While nights can get a bit cooler, during the day there’s often summer-like weather with mild temperatures. It’s cool enough for exploring the enchanting countryside and there’s no problem getting around as the island is less packed – the ideal conditions to practice sports and outdoor activities.  

    Moving inland has its own beauty, so here we’ve rounded up our top 3 activities to discover the beautiful countryside and make the most of the beautiful weather: 

    Walking

    As the heat of summer wanes it is the perfect time to start enjoying one of the great cool-weather pleasures of Ibiza: walking and hiking the many beautiful corners of the island. Despite being a small island, Ibiza has an abundance of quaint valleys and unspoiled hills to explore. There are companies on the island that offer tours. We recommend Toby of Walking Ibiza – you can book either a private or a community tour. If you don’t feel like a tour and want to go exploring by yourself, we encourage you to ask us and do a bit of research first, even if most of the trails are well-marked, it’s always better to have a map with you and to know where the route is heading.

    Cycling

    There are no truly big climbs in Ibiza which makes cycling enjoyable even for amateurs. The stunning countryside and green hills will be the perfect backdrop for a great day. We recommend Velo Club Ibiza if you want to hire a bike or take a guided tour. Their tours include road riding, cross country mountain bike rides as well as riding off the map across dusty caminos and gravel tracks – known only by locals!

    Horse-riding

    Ibiza’s forest trails make it an ideal place for horse-riding. We recommend you  Can Mayans, on the road from Santa Gertrudis to San Lorenzo, their tours will take you on nature trails during the day and romantic full moon rides at night under the stars.

    The Ibiza veterans have known this secret for a very long time – late summer is the best time to plan a cheeky escape to the White Isle. It’s the last opportunity to get your dose of sunshine in, before the winter weather comes looming and tan time is over in Europe…

    And they are right! The bustling August fades away with the crowds of summer holiday makers leaving the island, the high prices of peak season going down, as well as the high temperatures, leaving the way for gloriously warm September sunlight and great deals on villa rentals. Here at Mi Casa Tu Casa, we still have some availability left on our most popular villas, check them out: Last Summer Bliss in Ibiza.

    If you’re still seeking good reasons to travel to the White Isle, here are our top 3:

    Endless Summer

    Nothing like the last burst of short-haul sunshine to make summer last a bit longer and carry us through the autumn with a glow. Here in Ibiza, the sea and skies are still blue as can be, the water’s warmer than ever, and the high-season tourists are all back everything’s a lot quieter. Forget about the stress of parking, or finding a spot on the beach, September beach time is all about relaxing and enjoying the sun.

    Off the Beaten Track

    If beaches aren’t your bag, head inland for some exploration and adventure. As the heat of summer fades, it’s the perfect time to enjoy one of the great outdoor pleasures of Ibiza: walking and hiking the many beautiful corners of the island! One of our favourite walks is the one up to Sa Talaria – the highest point of the island! Although it’s an uphill walk, don’t worry, the route is easy, with a smooth gradient, hence suitable also for families with kids. The views from the top are out of this world, and on a clear day you can see both Mallorca and the mainland.

    Closing Parties

    If you are up for some dancing, September is the perfect month to enjoy the dance floor with closing parties – the clubbing highlights of the season. With big DJs come big shows. Whether it’s old club names or the hype new ‘Hi’, we’re willing to bet that you’ll leave Ibiza in September with a couple of jaw dropping memories.

    Cala d’Hort
    Known as Es Vedra, the rocky island in front of Cala d’Hort, has been the centre of myths and legends for years. Whether you believe any of the stories or not, it’s a stunning landmark that will make your holiday snap sizzle. Enjoy a day at the beach, then head to the restaurant of Es Boldado, perched on the cliff to watch the sun go down in this quaint spot.

    Cala Tardia
    Cala Tarida is a truly beautiful spot for watching the sun set, a paradisiacal location to end your day. Watching the sky turns into a vivid red, while dining on the rooftop restaurant of Cotton Beach Club, has got to be the most delicious way to see the sunset in Ibiza.

But Ibiza veterans know that there is a place in the South, set right in heart of the Ses Salines salt flats, where you can watch the sun sink into the horizon. Experimental Beach, in Cap D’es Falco, is laid-back chic at its finest! They offer exquisite cuisine, prime cocktails, and impressive views across the Mediterranean.

    North

    Benirras beach is the only spot in the North of the island where you can watch the sunsetting, It’s a pretty cove, mostly quiet during the week but that can get pretty crowded on a Sunday when its famous hippy bongo session took place. The restaurant Elements is the best place to be, while experiencing the authentic spirit of Ibiza at dusk.

  8. The 10 best family friendly beaches in Ibiza

    Leave a Comment

    Ibiza is well-known all over the world for its turquoise sea and beautiful beaches. It boasts more than 53 beaches, so there’s plenty of choices – from long stretches of sand and intimate bays to secluded coves and rocky inlets.

    If you are coming on holiday with your kids, you might want to consider spending your day relaxing on the most child-friendly ones. For as beautiful as they are, not all of them are suitable enough for younger kids – some beaches may lack of amenities and others may not be safe, featuring difficult access to the sea and steep cliffs.

    To help you find the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy a day with the whole family, we’ve rounded up 10 of Ibiza’s top family-friendly beaches – all boasting clear waters, beautiful views, activities for all ages and tons of opportunities to keep everyone happy.

     

    North

    Located in the far north, Portinax is very popular among families with a bit of something for everyone – plenty of space for the youngest ones to play, wonderful turquoise sea with shallow waters and a gentle slope into the sea. The bay is surrounded by pine trees, which provide some shade and resort-style hotels and eateries where you can enjoy delicious meals, overlooking the beautiful turquoise sea.

    Another great beach in the north of the island is Cala San Vicent. It’s a spacious sandy beach, surrounded by a long pedestrian promenade with some beachside cafes and restaurants, where you can enjoy a delicious meal while overlooking the beautiful sea. A must-do when you are here is to take your car and go up to the top of the cliff to witness the breathtaking views of the beach below – and take a beautiful family picture with this breathtaking backdrop!

     

    North East

    Cala Llenya is a popular family-friendly beach among locals and tourists. A crescent of gently-sloping white sand and crystal clear water, framed by pine trees and rocky cliffs. There is only one chiringuito that serves lunch, so make sure to bring some snacks and drinks for the little ones.

    Located on the upcoming east side of the island, Cala Nova is surrounded by gorgeous scenery. It usually has shallow waters, even if sometimes on a windy day it can become a decent spot for surfing – making it the perfect place for young surfers to learn. Children can safely play on the long beach while mums and dads can relax in the sun and enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the trendy beach restaurants of Cala Nova. Try the famous Atzaro Beach restaurant for some delicious seafood or the new Aiyanna Beach Club with its bohemian relaxed vibe and delicious healthy meals.

     

    South East

    Near Ibiza Town, there is the beach of S’Estanyol, a tiny, private cove surrounded by rocky cliffs. The entire bay has a new trendy feeling thanks to its beach restaurant, Cala Bonita. This little slice of paradise is one of the last few quiet beaches where locals and visitors can enjoy some peace and quiet, also during the busy summer season.

    Talamanca is the closest beach to Ibiza town. A white stretch of sand in a beautiful bay, lined with a wide variety of restaurants and bars on its palm tree promenade. The beach has always had a very relaxed vibe but lately has a jet set twist due to the opening of prime luxury establishments.

     

    South

    Las Salinas is possibly one of Ibiza’s famous beaches. It’s a long stretch of soft sand, surrounded by a nature reserve park, sand dunes and pine forests. The sea is particularly clear and salty, with easy access for children. In high-season it gets very busy and unless you are up for some fun-crazy Ibiza beach time, we will advise to avoid it or arrive there late afternoon when is quieter. Off-season is a great place to enjoy some quality beach time with your family. Along the beach mums and dads can enjoy lunch in one of Ibiza’s famous beach bars and restaurants.

     

    West

    Cala Gració is a sheltered cove with incredible turquoise waters, so no wonder that is one of the beautiful little beaches in the north of San Antonio! It’s an ideal quiet beach for families, even in high season. Thanks for being a deep cove it does not have any waves or currents, making it a perfect safe place for the little ones. The water is shallow, warm, and so clear that you can see the bottom— perfect for swimming and diving.

    Cala Tarida is another great family beach, on the west coast. This beach ticks all the boxes, big seashore where kids can have fun out of the water, crystal clear shallow water and plenty of kid-friendly activities. Surrounded by bars and glamour beach clubs, deciding where to eat will have never been so easy. What else could you wish for to have on a relaxed beach day in Ibiza?

    Cala Vadella is a beautiful bay with all the amenities for an ideal day at the beach. This beach has always been a family’s favourite and it’s easy to understand why – soft white sand that slopes gently into shallow waters, plenty of bars, restaurants & ice cream shop – perfect for an afternoon treat! The beach offers plenty of space for having fun with the kids and the crystal clear water is perfect for swimming and snorkelling – there is also a dive school in the area.

  9. New Restaurants & Beach Clubs – Ibiza 2016

    Leave a Comment
     

    Ok, so you might be thinking a ‘new for 2016’ blog post is a bit slow off the mark in the heady days of August. Well you’re not wrong, but there’s been a string of fairly late openings as licences and building works take longer than any nervous restaurant owner might expect…and we’ve been a little busy reviewing! Anyway, here are five brand new restaurants that (might) be worth checking out on your holidays this August;
     

     

    Cala Bonita

     

    The enchanting bay of S’estanyol has always been one of Ibiza’s coolest and not-so-well-known spots. There is just a single beach restaurant there and it’s been a favourite amongst locals for private parties and skinny dips for years. The restaurant has just been taken over by a new team, headed up by Australian TV celebrity chef Karen Martini. She has a string of awards and credits to her name from ‘down under’ and the menu at Cala Bonita looks great with the focus on Mediterranean flavours using local organic produce. We haven’t eaten here ourselves yet but we will be driving down S’estanyol’s bumpy track very soon. The reports are of mouth watering food at eye watering prices. Service levels tbc.

    Can Bass

     

    Opening a restaurant next to a main road can be a recipe for disaster but perhaps not so in Ibiza. Can Bass opened up in June at km7 on the Ibiza /San Jose road. With the help of a fair few containers of teak furniture from Bali , a good effort has been made at making some intimate areas creating a nice atmosphere. It’s a surprisingly big place. When we ate here the menu was interesting but not complicated. It has a Spanish Mediterranean theme with a lot of variety. The food was decent, the service willing and the prices surprisingly good (year one strategy perhaps). Some kid friendly options on the menu too. It’s probably not worth driving across the island to, but if you are in this area for dinner then we thoroughly recommend it. It might be the next km5. Best of luck to the Basque owners.

    Coricancha

     

    The Blue Marlin Group have just opened up their latest venture on the road across the salt lakes to Salinas. It’s a Japanese Peruvian Nikkei restaurant. They have worked very hard to deliver the theme from menu to decor. It’s a pretty spot and you really can see the flamingoes in the salt lakes (if you have good eyesight). The service was excellent and staff were evangelical about the ingredients and the dishes. But this can be a double edged sword. The bar of expectation is set very high when you are briefed on the food so professionally. It was tasty but not everything hits expectation . Great Ceviche, great desserts , main courses disappointing. We will be returning once they have settled in a bit more
    > visit website

     

    IT in Cala Moli

     

    On the back of the success of IT in Marina Botafoch (a fantastic modern Italian restaurant which we love ) , IT have taken over the beach club at Cala Moli. It’s the only restaurant in this pretty west coast bay and it even has a swimming pool. So, the fundamental ingredients were there for something special and it was only a matter of time before someone grabbed one of the last great beach club opportunities on the island. The new owners have done a great job and the place oozes style. We haven’t eaten there yet but if the food is on a par with it’s Marina Botafoch sister it will complete a very special location on the island.
    > visit website

     

    The Cotton Beach Club Lounge (Figueretes)

     

    Yet another brand extension. This time from the owners of the Cotton Beach Club / Fay sushi restaurant in Cala Tarida . This is a different offering. More of a cafe restaurant. It is a great place for breakfast but it doesn’t sit alongside it’s west coast partner in quality for lunch or dinner. Stunning sea views but in somewhat ordinary surroundings. Figueretes is up and coming but still needs to come up a fair bit to support high restaurant prices. But with a new 5 star hotel opening set for 2017 around the corner and the possible redevelopment of the paseo maritimo (board walk) maybe they have seen the light before anyone else. Let’s see.

The setting is unparalleled with westward sea views as far as mainland Spain, 70km away at dusk. The food is mouth-watering and the service good. Overall it´s a great experience that should not be missed if you do not have too far to travel. It gets windy up there so the ladies should bring wraps.

    Bar 1805  Ibiza old town

    Carrer Santa Lucia, hidden in ta tiny plaza in the old town. If you can find it and you are in for a more alternative night then this is a great place. 1805 celebrates the founding of Absynthe and all the craziness that goes with this intoxicating spirit. Charles the French owner is a character to say the least. What they do they do well, very well. Great steaks and Moules Mariniere. Don´t get stressed about the service, it´s awful at times. Just relax and get eating and drinking and watching the club parades walking past in thongs and not much else. This is a fun slice of Ibiza and a warm up to something else.
