So summer season is fast approaching us! The island is so busy not with tourists but with workmen all their paintbrushes are out in force!!! This time of year it is all about getting ready for the season ahead! Ibiza really is a different island winter to summer which I have said before and I enjoy it all! I am Very lucky living here in Ibiza for many reasons but the main one being its like living in two different places once the seasons change! Even as I write this I have the consistent sound of drilling and labouring work over the road from me as I think the hotel is getting done up ready! Nothing like last-minute but its all very manana here and Fabulous! This gets you excited as knowing what is coming! You can feel a change in the air!
The direct flights from all over the UK have started now too, which makes such a difference for us islanders who commute back to the north of the UK! British Airways have just said they are putting more flights on for next winter from London city airport which is great for the island! But I am positive thinking for them or any airline to put on some flights from up north just maybe 2 a week!!! Goooooooo on Ryanair or British Airways I am not fussy! I dare you!!..
Many tourists walking around this time of year I tend to feel a bit sorry for them as if they don’t hire a car some areas are still very much closed maybe the odd bar and restaurant! If your staying down Figuretas way there is one bar you must visit a local Irish bar called Father Jacks! Also a visit to Ibiza town this time of year is lovely as it’s not too hot to walk round the cobble streets and up to the top of Dalt Vila! This picture is courtesy of my brother as I didn’t make it to the top! But the view is breathtaking! Plus a visit to Las Dalias Market in San Carlos!
One of the main positives of visiting this time of year is the quietness, the peacefulness is still here . On a hot sunny day you can have a whole beach to yourself, some of the top restaurants on the island have opened and you will get a table for what ever time you like plus there are often great menu offers on!!!
I am loving this time of year I have been meeting my brides of 2015 and getting very excited for them and also having time to spend with my Ibiza residents clientele! Who often go for a new hair do for summer season too!! Well new season new hair do! Why not!
So remember Ibiza isn’t all about the clubs and the bad press its gets, Ibiza really is a stunningly precious Island! Come & see!!
