With hot summer temperatures arriving as early as May and lasting right through to early October, the island of Ibiza provides a desirable climate for you to enjoy and a longer season than many other areas in the Mediterranean. Ibiza attracts a well-heeled superyacht crowd to enjoy the sunshine and uber-chic hangouts.
Ibiza has magnetic qualities, some say literally. No other Mediterranean destination combines the same club-cove-music-mocktail mix. The island’s magnetism attracted a beatnik crowd in the 1960s and nightclub-loving hedonists in the 1980s and 90s, creating an up-market hippy-chic vibe. The result is an eclectic fusion that exists nowhere else in Europe. Chartering a superyacht in Ibiza is the ultimate experience in that it serves as a haven for everything this Balearic Island town has to offer.
Ibiza is a popular spot for yoga retreats and health/wellbeing travelers, but the party vibe remains strong. If you are looking for more boho glamour than trance music, try out Experimental Beach during the summer season – it combines a beach club, restaurant and nightspot and has a laid-back vibe. Not far away, on Playa Es Cavallet, is the slicker El Chiringuito – a place to enjoy pure beach serenity with high-quality al fresco dining.
If you want to get away from Ibiza’s typical scene, the Heart Club, created by the Adrià brothers and Cirque Du Soleil, offers a fabulous up-market fusion of lounge and fine dining. Lio, which has recently operated pop-ups in both London and Porto Cervo, is a trendy cabaret club with a view onto both Marina Ibiza and the beautiful castellated Dalt Vila (the old town).
Cala Xarraca is just one of the many anchorages in Ibiza; the bay is 295 feet long, one of the most beautiful and isolated on the island, and is the perfect setting for a romantic evening meal. One unique feature is the natural mud bath, which is said to have healing properties.
There is something for everyone on the island of Ibiza and it’s a more family-friendly destination than you might expect. The island has a smoke-free beach at Santa Eulàlia and when it comes to water-based exploring, there’s fantastic snorkeling around the submarine peaks of the Es Vedrà rock.
If you want even more relaxation, sail 20 minutes to the silver sands of Playa de Ses Illetes in Formentera, Ibiza’s little sister island. This tiny island may have a reputation for being relatively peaceful compared to its neighbor, but it has upped its game with many desirable beach restaurants. Take the tender or swim ashore to Beso Beach for a long, lazy lunch, or head to the chic 10 Punto 7 for sunset cocktails followed by a mix of Italian and Japanese cuisine. The shallow azure sea explains why Formentera is also nicknamed the Bahamas of the Mediterranean.
