I’m very used to Spring Break being when I go to a beach or somewhere warm from Texas, so this year was a little different. It has been very cold in Florence, and we wanted to go anywhere that would be warmer at all, so we thought Spain! Unfortunately, our ideas of Ibiza being a beach and great nightlife were off by a few months. It turns out everything on the island is essentially closed until things warm up.
Okay, so this may have been a mistake to go here during spring break. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Would I recommend it? No. We stayed in the best Airbnb that I definitely would recommend, but didn’t go out much. Basically the only thing we did was order Japanese food and go to a chilly beach pretending it was warm, but that was still really nice! We walked over to Playa De Talamanca and laid out for a few hours, and took these pics. Duh.
I’m so obsessed with all of my Triangl bikinis, but would definitely have gotten a larger top, so if considering buying this bikini, size up in the strapless ones! Also, I’ve definitely gained more than a few pounds living in Italy, but #bodyposi and all that. Love pizza.
I found my new favorite brunch place ever- too bad I probably won’t ever see it again! But if you visit I 100% suggest going here! It was healthy, ridiculously tasty, and right next to the beach! Passion Marina was the name, and the brunch was fantastic. We missed breakfast sadly, but the lunch was still amazing. Maddy was able to eat there, which is always a plus as she is gluten free/dairy free/sugar free. We got some delicious smoothies, and I had a goat cheese salad.
We really really wanted to see Es Vedra, which is apparently a stunning sunset viewpoint, but couldn’t afford the super expensive taxi to get there. So instead, we went to Ses Salines with a bottle of wine to enjoy it from there. It was really pretty, but so cold!! I would suggest to anyone visiting Ibiza- definitely go to Es Vedra. From what we heard and saw on Google, it would have been incredible.
This is when things got funny. A German man and woman saw us from what we assumed was a home, and knew we were cold so they invited us in! After telling ourselves we wouldn’t get murdered, we went in and realized it was more of an outside shack. It still shielded us from the wind, and we met a man named Lutz who was a caretaker of the resort on the beach. It was totally empty since the weather was still bad, so he had the place to himself. We also met his friend, Ulrike, who we found out MODELED IN PLAYBOY. What? We hung out with them for a few hours, then went home.
It was only about a full day in Ibiza, but I’m glad we didn’t spend more time there. It seems amazing when its in full swing, but we definitely went at the wrong time of year. Some places it can be beneficial to visit during off season, but I’m realizing many European places actually shut down during winter. So before visiting, make sure you find out if hotels/restaurants/clubs etc will be open!
