    I’ve heard that Ibiza isn’t just a party place and that it could also be family-friendly. Would do anything for some warmth and sunshine now 🙂

    I’ve had loads of holidays in Ibiza and absolutely LOVE the place away from the clubbing it is an island with a lot of hidden romantic spots!

    A mum friend of mine went to Ibiza without the kids in the summer and absolutely loved it. I really hadn’t considered going at my age, but it seems like it would make for a great destination for a couples’ getaway. Plus I love adventure & activities so a trip would be right up my street!

    I always thought that Ibiza was for teenagers who liked to party, it was only over recent years when friends have been that they said it is the most idyllic holiday destination! We have never been and yet I would love to go, especially to see those sun sets!

    I’ve been to Ibiza for the first time this year and it can totally be very romantic. Ibiza Old Town was my favourite place on the island.

    I have never been, nor considered it – the clubbing aspect has always put us off considering the place. May well have to look again after reading this though!

    These are some brilliant tips, thank you. I had heard that it was definitely worth looking at for people looking for a quieter holiday as well as for clubbers, it’s great to hear more detail on that.

    Love, love, love Ibiza! We went last year. To be fair, it wasn’t for a romantic getaway though. We stayed at the Ibiza Rocks hotel in San Antonio. Got to see Mark Ronson, Sigma & Chase & Status. It wasnt all patying though, we did also go to Ibiza town & had a walk around the marina & a bite to eat. We also had a go at Ocean Mania (the inflatable sea obstacle course), was great fun

    Sounds like a beautiful holiday destination! Totally adding this to my bucket list which is growing longer after each visit to your lovely blog, BTW.
