Ever wished you had a friend in Ibiza that would take you to all the great “secret” places in Ibiza? Look no further, we are happy to share our secrets with you.
The beaches and “Calas” of Ibiza
Ibiza is famous for its beautiful beaches and hidden “Calas”. Want to find one of those secret beaches away from the crowds?
Even though the so called secret beaches are not so secret anymore, you can still find some hidden gems on the north side of Ibiza. Cala Xuclar and Cala d`en Serra are two of our favorite spots, in both places you will find a small traditional chiringuito that is open for lunch during the summer months.
To find even more secluded “Calas” we recommend that you rent a boat
Want to eat like a local?
Cas Pagès is a typical Ibicencan family owned restaurant that have been serving grilled meat for over forty years. The menu is simple and consist of meat and sides, but this might be the best steak on the island. This is a non-fancy, no reservation and no credit card accepted kind of a place.
Prefer seafood instead? Try the grilled sardines at Hostal Talamanca, fresh fish at the seasonal chiringuito at Sa Punta (also known as “the fish shack”), or one of the many seafood dishes at Sa Caleta restaurant. This restaurant is located just above the beautiful Es Bol Nou beach and is very popular amongst locals and tourists alike, open for lunch and dinner (booking is required).
The list of great bars around the island is long. But here are a few that we find quite unique.
Tira Palla – the hidden rooftop bar in Ibiza town. Find Mona Lisa and Soap bar, then you find the stairs that lead you up to this quaint little rooftop bar with a beautiful view towards Dalt Vila. Friendly staff, great mojitos and pop music.
Bar Baboon – all cocktail lovers should find their way to Bar Baboon in Figueretes. This stylish bar is located in the same building as the equally stylish Cotton Lounge Club. We promise you that this is an impressive experience.
BAR 1805 – ever had a bird cage drink? Didn´t think so. The owner of Bar 1805 is a renowned bartender that serve classic cocktails with a twist, and the famous Absinthe punch appropriately named “Green beast”.
