Ibiza Editor's Tips
1. CASUAL DINING
When it comes to restaurants, the unofficial dress code at Ibiza’s casually exotic eateries is laidback luxe. They’re also dotted all over the island, so expect to take a taxi. Book late. No one eats before 10pm in summer.
2. WATERSIDE DINING
For daytime dining at waterside restaurants, reserve in advance – a week ahead in high summer, even earlier for Sundays – and remember to pre-book daybeds if you plan to relax on the beach afterwards. Ibiza's speciality dishes are bullit de peix (a saffrony fish stew) and whole, salt-baked fish, so they’re a great place to start.
3. UPMARKET DINING
Smart dining is Ibiza's premium pre-club experience; an 11pm dinner table means you'll be perfectly timed for Pacha at 2am.
Ibiza's all about the clubs. Sundays at Space, Cocoon at Amnesia, Circoloco at DC10, Solomun + 1 are absolute must-dos, but try to squeeze at least one sunset and a casual drink in the port in, too.
As for beaches, try to go off-piste – you won't regret it. Reserve sunbeds at beach clubs well in advance (check if there's a minimum spend) and pre-book a private driver to avoid lengthy taxi queues at sunset.
Wellbeing in Ibiza plays a big part. We say, try one of the more ‘out there’ wellbeing options – it’s part of the complete Ibiza experience!
7. CLOSE TO ME IBIZA
Don’t feel like leaving the hotel zone? From seaside resorts to remote beaches (#UJloves Cala Boix) and charming village markets, Ibiza's northeast coast – home to ME Ibiza – has it all. Get a car and explore!
As for directions, Ibiza is generally referred to simply in terms of 'the north' and 'the south' – draw an imaginary line across the island from San Antonio to Santa Eularia and you’ll be on the right track.
9. ME FAVES
Make sure to get up in time for breakfast. #UJloves the post-yoga Champagne start.
Transport in Ibiza in high season can be very difficult. Arrange a driver with your hotel for a hassle-free holiday: beach, lunch, dinner, club, remote villa party – they’ll get you there and back safely. Oh, and make sure you take a boat to Formentera for the day (again, arrange with hotel) – it truly is the best.
