Ibiza- Craig David, Paella, Ciroc and other cute stuff

Hey guys, I got back from Ibiza with my sister and two cousins last week- I had such an amazing time out there as we were super lucky with the artist line up as we managed to see Craig David, Sigma, Bugsy Malone, David Guetta, Chase and Status plus more!

Not only was the night life amazing, but the sea, scenery and food were top notch too! I thought I’d share my highlights of my week out there with you guys for anyone who wants a rough idea for what it’s like..

NIGHTLIFE

Before going to Ibiza I was a bit worried that all the clubs would play pure deep house (as this is not my favourite genre of music) but I was pleasantly surprised that it was a huge mix of DnB, R&B, hiphop, dance, EDM and of course house lol.

I’d say my favourite event I went to was definitely Together at Amnesia as it had such an amazing line up with Chase and Status headlining with artists like Andy C, Bugsy Malone, Sigma, Gorgon City, The Disciples and others performing too. I literally could have continued dancing to 7am the next morning!

 

I also loved the Craig David pool party at Ibiza Rocks. I couldn’t believe how close we were to him whilst he was performing- it felt so surreal! It was also quite weird that we spotted Louis Walsh there too! After we left the pool party at around 9, we went for a cute dinner with the view of the sunset.

 

 

 

 

We later returned back to clubbing and went to Soul City with free entry- I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes hiphop and bashment (like myself lol).

 

We also went to see David Guetta at Pacha. He was amazing and the atmosphere was so intense especially when confetti was released when the beat dropped on his most well known songs. However I would say it was slightly too packed as I was struggling to breath at one point!

If any of you guys are planning on going to Ibiza I would say buy all of your alcohol at duty free! That’s what we did and despite buying more fancy alcohol (like ciroc and jaeger) than what we usually do (Tesco value!) it still saved us so much money seeing as water alone was about 8-10 euros in the famous clubs!

 

We also had pre-drinks along the seafront which was so chilled and a perfect way to prepare ourselves for the night we had ahead of us at Ushuaia pool party followed by Pacha!

 

 

 

 

SIGHTS 

Ibiza is a beautiful island as their beaches are crystal blue! One day we visited a small neighbouring island called Formentura. The beaches were unreal! I’d never seen a clearer beach- it literally felt like paradise there.

 

 

On another day we explored the Ibiza town which had cute boutiques which reminded me of a mix of Camden, Carnaby street and Barcelona.

We also walked up a giant hill to see a monastery- although I was super hungover and did not share my sister’s and cousins’ enthusiasm about the trek at the time, now looking back I’m glad I went as we did have a beautiful view of the city once we reached the top.

FOOD

I loved the food in Ibiza as it was super fresh and healthy. The cuisine is Spanish but has other influences from neighbouring islands as well as from Japan; so we ate a lot of seafood, paellas, salads and pizza.

My favourite meal was the seafood paella we shared between the four of us which was served in a giant pan. It tasted so fresh and we could tell that the seafood was definitely not cooked from frozen.

 

I also loved the set meal we had from a Japanese restaurant; we got a seaweed and dumpling starter, sushi rolls, teriyaki tuna and an ice cream dessert all for 16 euros!

 

The pizza in Ibiza is also really good as they make the base quite thin with fresh toppings so it doesn’t taste stodgy at all.  I had a spinach and goats cheese one which was delicious and provided me with enough carbs for the night at Pacha club!

 

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and leave any comments below or on my recent post on Instagram.
