Ibiza, you have to admit, it still is fun!

The scorpio island has changed so much over the past few years and gotten very busy but it still has the magic that once made it a hippie, bohemien hangout for creatives from all over the world.

So where do we go now? Here are some of my tips & tricks to survive, even with kids! Ibiza is a great destination with friends or as a family vacation.

Breakfast:

  • Cappuccino in the marina with a great view of the old town
  • Can Guimo; small hippie place with homemade breakfast, lunch etc. It is next to the road in San Lorenzo
  • Passion Cafe has various restaurants all over the island. The place for healthy juices and great food.
  • Croissant Show in the old town for a french breakfast
  • Jockey Club only if you are very early

Lunch:

  • Aqua Blanca for the best sandwhiches ever
  • Es Torrent for excellent service and fresh fish
  • Los Enamorados in the North of the island
  • Paloma Cafe the lunch in the campo
  • Il Giardinetto, Italian food in the Botafoch harbor. Simple but very consistently good Italian food!
  • Babylon beach in St. Eulalia
  • Cala Bonita at s’Estanyol; new, great staff and food

Diner favorites:

  • La Luna del Orto
  • Cicale the other great Italian
  • Es Caliu for the meat lover
  • Macao in busy St. Gertrudis
  • Les Terasses for a special Moroccan or Thai night

Feel like doing something different? Catch the ferry (or rent a boot) to Formentera and rent an old fashioned Mehari or a bike! Lunch options are numerous but make sure to book ahead as some are quite popular. Here are some great places:

  • Chezz Gerdi
  • Beso
  • Tiburon
  • 10.7

Don’t forget to try the local drink, hierbas but drink it on the rocks🙂

Eivissa Food; the best Ibiza restaurant tips

Almost summer… 2016 can you believe it? Can’t wait to put on that long dress, wander in my garden and look up at the stars at night and wonder what the hell am I doing back in Amsterdam most of the year. As soon as I land just the scent of the air brings me back to my childhood year on the island.

My book is full of tips of places which still have that authentic feeling and haven’t changed through the years. Wonder why everyone always wants ‘new’ when there is so much beauty in ‘old’?

Just a list of my all time favorites:

La Paloma is the hippie favorite. The food is always excellent and has never let me down. I usually order different starters to share as choosing one has never been my best quality.

Ex Xarcu where time just does not seem to matter. The amount of the bill on the other hand does as this can be quiet stiff.

Macao Cafe is the best Italiaan where you can drink wine all night and have your kids running around the town square without having to (really) worry.

The Passion Cafe does serve the best organic health food. Great menu and juices, perfect for the day after guilt comfort food.

Oh almost forgot, Can Guimo, best countryside breakfast place! Homemade cakes, great breakfast, lunch and healthy juices!

Enjoy!
