IBIZA - The Town and its Magic

IBIZA - The Town and its Magic

In 1975 I arrived in Ibiza for the first time.
I was studying in the Tourism School in Valencia and I was offered a job as receptionist in a hotel, that would give me the chance to practice the languages I was learning.

I still remember that morning perfectly, the boat was going slowly, we’ve been travelling all night and the sun was rising, all of a sudden the city appeared in front of us, magic and silent, like a postcard.
I was fascinated then, and here I am after all these years.

The roads were terrible then and to arrive at any beach was very difficult but it was always worthwhile, there were few tourists then and it was possible to have the place in exclusive.

In different occasions I tried to change work, island, country but I kept coming back.

For many years I worked in different hotels and since 1991 I work as a Tour Guide.
That means I’ve seen Ibiza in all seasons from north to south and so many times, but it still surprises me because of its beauty.

Many things have changed in the island during the past decades but it still keeps its charm and magic for those who look for something more than sun and nightlife.
Few tourists visit us in the wintertime.
Those who do, can enjoy the frequent sunny mornings, ideal for a stroll along the beach or a walk around the countryside.
Probably is January, when all the almond trees are blooming. the time when Ibiza looks absolutely most astounding.

But I prefer summertime.
I love the heat and to swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters, and sometimes with a little bit of luck I am invited to sail around the island in a small boat, it is then when I enjoy it the most, so many little coves with nobody…

At night, the old port, full of people from all around the world, is very cosmopolitan and interesting.
And for a quiet evening I prefer the most ideal place, Ibiza old town “Dalt Vila”, with its narrow streets and charming restaurants where a nice dinner or drink is so relaxing.
And it is that, a stroll around the old town what I always recommend everybody.
A visit to that old city, full of history and charm that welcomes everyone as time goes by.
