Ibiza Travel Guide
Sleep in (you’ll need the energy for later) and order breakfast in bed at the new Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, set on the buzzing shoreline of Playa d’en Bossa. Then take a dip in the nearby pool to wash away any lingering hangover from last night’s revelry.
SALTY SWIM Soak in the heated saltwater pools and waterfalls tucked into the clif s of Hacienda Na Xamena, just a 20-minute ride from Ibiza’s center. From your perch 600 feet above the shoreline, the vistas of the sapphire Mediterranean and the island’s pine-blanketed coast won’t need an Instagram f lter. IBIZA A 24/7 party on a 24/7 island = a daylong itinerary full of hot honeymoon heat.
BEACHSIDE BUBBLES Dig your toes deep into the sand while dining waterside at Yemanja restaurant at Jondal Cove. Order paella or islandsourced f sh and a bottle of cava since now you can toast like local married couples do: clinking f rst the f ute and then the stems of your glasses.
RETAIL ZEN Get essential Ibiza gear at Las Dalias, the island’s most famous bohemian market, now in its 30th year. Drape yourselves in gauzy white dresses, linen shirts, fowered headbands and espadrille sandals.
Paddle in kayaks to the island of Es Vedrà. Let guide Martina Greef of Ibiza Kayak lead the way through a marine reserve featuring caves, coves, swimming holes and wildlife. The cooler is stocked with French champagne and snacks to share at sunset.
HISTORY LESSON Head to the historic center of Eicissa to stroll the ramparts of the old city. Built in the 16th century to hold back pirates (Ahoy, mateys!), the walls surround narrow cobblestone lanes (read: leave the stilettos at the hotel) that lead to cathedrals, museums and a castle.
STARGAZING Don’t be surprised if you spot a star or two partying at Lío, an exclusive dinner and cabaret club set along Eicissa city’s port. After the performance, Lío morphs into a cocktail bar and dance club with internationally renowned DJs vying for top billing each night.
