Here are five top places to visit in Ibiza
According to Alexandra Sixt, Ibiza local lifestyle expert and wedding and event planner
1. Nassau Beach Club
Opens March 28th
The beach clubs begin to awaken after the quiet winter season.They are now warming themselves up in preparation for the busy 2015 season ahead.
2. Tanit Beach Nassau
The newly-opened Tanit will soon be opening its doors for the first time, and the hype surrounding its launch makes it worth checking out. It’s branded as a chic, family/kid-family venue. More information will surface travelers visit this highly-anticipated Ibiza destination in the coming months.
3. Amante Beach Club
Opening party to take place on May 3
Founded in 2009, this Ibiza hot spot was the brainchild of David Piccioni, a known leader in house music, former International DJ and founder of Black Market and the Azuli record label. Aside from lively parties, Amante Beach Club also offers the quintessential signature Ibiza lifestyle of ultimate beachfront relaxation relaxing that many travelers crave.
Another major appeal is the mouthwatering Ibizan/Spanish cuisine. Amante will open its doors for the season by celebrating Easter with a traditional Catalan dish of Arroz Negro con Espardenas (sea cucumber). The traditional Catalan rice dish is infused with squid ink, chopped fresh squid and “espardeñas” or sea cucumbers – a delicacy related to the sea urchin and starfish.
The espardeñas are harvested by hand on the shores of the Balearic Islands and the east coast of Spain and are considered by some to have aphrodisiac qualities. – Alexandra Sixt
Opens April 12th
In addition to all the glitz and glamour, Ibiza has a fun, laid-back hippie scene. If hippie paradise is your scene, Elements in Benirrás, a 10-minute drive from San Miguel, opens its doors to you on April 12th with OpenLab. Every Sunday throughout the summer, the radio station plays chill beats in the afternoon, until the live drums and bongos start at sunset — an homage to the magical island and an event that magnifies Ibiza´s indescribable energy. Hundreds of people gather to experience the vibe. The view from the sheltered bay is dramatic; a must-have experience.
5. Pura Vida Beach Club & Restaurant
Opens end of April 2015
The ultimate destination for laid-back beachfront pampering, Pura Vida Beach Club & Restaurant is a charming beach club directly on the beach, just steps from the calm blue sea. Located on the island’s east coast, surrounded by a beautiful nature reserve, Pura Vida oozes elegance in a relaxed, luxurious setting. The superb location makes it a perfect place for couples and families to unwind. Guests can taste from the menu of light “Beach Lounge Cuisine” or stunning Mediterranean dishes with an Asian twist – fresh fish, creative salads and healthy appetizers – made fresh by a world-class kitchen. You can order food and have it served to you without moving from your beach bed or lounge. Alternatively, you can dine in style on their elegant wooden terrace one step away from the beach. As day becomes night, the menu evolves into a modernist cuisine. Indulge in a fresh seafood platter as you contemplate the main event – lubina and sepia risotto, roasted turbot with pak choy and papaya, a juicy rack of local lamb and so many other mouth-watering. An international DJ plays chill, atmospheric beach music five nights per week at the perfect volume for conversation and canoodling. Twice a week, Pura Vida provides children’s entertainment (giving the adults a break, if necessary!). Every Monday evening, Paco Fernandez, a world-famous Spanish classical guitarist, transforms the venue with live musical entertainment, including flamenco and hip hop collaborations.
