Escape to Ibiza: A Getaway Where you Get it All
Marina Ibiza is great if you want to stay on your vessel, but within walking distance is one of the finest luxury hotels in the world, Ibiza Gran Hotel. The hotel features extravagant lodgings and world-class pool and spa with fine dining on the premises. The hotel’s casino offers easy access to gaming and there is also a theater, museum, and shopping for some less risky entertainment options.
The beautiful island of Ibiza calls to the adventurer in all of us. The waters surrounding the island are great for kayaking and snorkeling; some of the most magnificent views can be found in the caves that run through the island’s rocky coastal cliffs. The beaches and water aren’t the only natural attractions though, outside of the urban area there are some amazing horseback riding areas to the north and romantic little towns that are great for exploring on foot spread throughout the island. Of course, there is also the vibrant nightlife that Ibiza is known for that thrives in Sant Antoni de Portmany and Platja d’en Bossa, offering all night raves and catering to the more hedonistic sensibilities.
The more densely populated and well-known southern part of the island offers plenty of fine dining opportunities near the resorts, but the local cuisine and short commute make exploring the restaurants outside of the urban area a must. Amante Ibiza in Cala Llonga has one of the most luscious beach views on the island, and the top-notch cuisine doesn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for a romantic patio dining experience, San Rafael’s El Clodenis will more than fit the bill, and if you feel like staying in town, 45 Millas in Sant Antoni de Portmany has amazing vegan options and an exceptional wine list. There are countless other restaurants around the island that cater to any taste and there is always something worth exploring in walking distance.
