Ibiza and sunsets go hand in hand, and while everyone is aware of the famous San Antonio ‘sunset strip’ and its variety of chillout bars – including the legendary Café del Mar – there are also plenty of other alternative vantage points on the island to watch the sun sink into the sea each night.
Not a day goes by during summer at Cas Gasi, where the owners and staff are not asked for personal recommendations on the best Ibiza beaches. After all, who better to ask than a local?
Obligatory excess luggage laden with gifts for your loved ones is all part of the holiday experience, however Ibiza town’s fluorescent t-shirts and tawdry postcards are hardly the souvenirs dreams are made of.
As is weekend custom in many of the world’s coolest cities, an early morning stroll (complete with paper-cup coffee) around local markets is guaranteed to unearth some unique finds, from fashion and furniture to face creams and much more. With its rich bohemian roots, fashion-forward residents and creative culture, Ibiza is no different, with an all year round market scene keeping the weekends interesting.
We adore the morning mists in the Ibiza countryside, particularly in January, before the fog lifts to reveal these infamous warm, still and sunny winter days.
The locals call this “the calm of January”. We call it pure bliss.
As the thick of the winter starts to come to an end, the fields of Ibiza become awash with a beautiful white haze… No, it’s not snow – rather, this spectacular show of nature is the annual blooming of the almond blossoms, when the wiry old almond trees finally get to show off, turning the country landscapes into picturesque scenes that wouldn’t be out of place in a fairytale.
