An Instagrammer's Guide To Ibiza.
So you're going to Ibiza and want to take some amazing snaps for your Instagram? I gots you covered. If you didn't already know, I've just got back from an amazing two week trip to Ibiza! I can hear the groans and almost envision the eye rolls already, it was a family holiday whilst we did hit up a few bars, we did not touch a nightclub and Ibiza was actually a whole lot nicer than I anticipated. We stayed in the sleepy town of Cala Nova in Es Canar, it was beautiful, quiet and near to everything we wanted to do. I have compiled a little list of three 'must dos' if you ever find yourself on the island.
IBIZA OLD TOWN
Ibiza Old Town is definitely one to visit, It's so easy to get to as there's a number of bus and boat routes you can take from where ever you are on the Island. For us, in Cala Nova, it was only a 40-minute bus journey. Just stumbling around and exploring, there's so much to see! There's plenty of lovely shops such as Mango and Stradivarius, beautiful boutiques and market stalls to collect souvenirs as well. We walked right up to the Ibiza Cathedral where you can go inside and take pictures; you can also see some lovely views from up there as well!
My boyfriend and I went alone one evening, as we wanted to see the town alive at night. There's so many restaurants to choose from, all facing the port. We decided to grab some tapas which surprisingly wasn't too expensive and really yummy! We then stayed for the sunset and shopped til late (also grabbed a huge fro-yo for the way home).
As you're in Ibiza Old Town, it's worth stopping by at Vivi's Creamery which belongs to Vivian Rosberg. If you love pastel shades, copper accessories and yummy ice cream - you'd love it! The ice cream is so creamy, the flavours are pretty scrummy and there's free wifi? Do I need to say anymore?
Side note - technically it's not in Ibiza, it's a completely separate island but I mean whilst you're in Ibiza you may as well?!
Formentera actually stole my heart! This place is beyond words. We booked a trip to the little island and it took us 2 hours to travel there with a mixture of coach, boat and some more coach to get where we wanted to be. We stopped at the capital first, San Francisco, which is a quaint and adorable town with an amazing blue and white theme throughout with little boutiques and restaurants. Highly, highly recommend visiting.
Next up, of course, Formentera's famous beaches! I'm not sure what one we visited but as soon as I saw some water, I just wanted to jump in. The water was unbelievably clear and all turquoise, it was nice to cool off as the island was much more humid than Ibiza. Formentera's also famous for these little blue and green lizards which can only be found on the island, I managed to take a quick snap of one which you will soon see.
