48 hours in Ibiza Travel Guide

I LOVE summer! Ibiza was on my travel bucket list for years for a revisit. So when you guys voted me to Ibiza with Cheaptickets.nl I was so happy! After 13 years (!) I finally went back to this lovely island. And I have to say, even for a short weekend break Ibiza is a great choice! In this Ibiza Travel Guide you find the first hotspots that I visited during my trip to Ibiza. 

We also made a video from the Ibiza trip! You can watch the video here:

Day 1 – Ibiza Travel Guide

From Amsterdam Ibiza is only a 2,5 hour flight away. And if you book in time you can choose from super early and late flights to enjoy a short break to the max. After we check in to our hotel we jump into our Ibiza proof outifts and take the car to Cotton Beach Club to enjoy a cocktail with our feet in the sand. This is the good life!
Cotton Beach Club – Cala Tarida beach
Cotton Beach Club is a super nice luxury beach club in the North West of Ibiza. Perfect if you’re looking for a relaxed day at the beach. The all white interior of Cotton Beach Club shimmers in the bright sun. We’re on Ibiza for only a few hours yet but enjoy it so much!

If you’re going to Ibiza check with your friends if they’re there too. Big chance that you can do a meet up all together! We went for dinner to La Paloma with our friends who spend the summer on Ibiza.

La Paloma Ibiza
La Paloma – C/ Can Pou, 4, Sant Joan de Labritja 
La Paloma is a very nice place to go for dinner or lunch during your stay at Ibiza. A super cute Italian restaurant in the middle of the Island. At La Paloma there are many locals and people that know Ibiza well (thanks to my followers for the great tip!). The food is very good and they offer delicious dishes. If it’s on the menu try the sashimi of sardines. Yummy!

It’s so great to meet with our friends. I would almost forget that we have to get up early to shoot a video the next day.

Day 2 – Ibiza Travel Guide

On Saturday we leave the hotel early and take the water taxi to Ibiza town. It’s cheaper than a regular taxi and for sure much more fun! If you want to go shopping in Ibiza then Ibiza city offers most of the high street Spanish fashion brands and many small shops with Ibiza jewelry and fashion. The small streets are so cosy!

Croissant Show – Plaça de la Constitució 2 – Ibiza City
The best spot in Ibiza city for breakfast is Croissant Show. They say you can get the best croissants of the Island there. I order a cold frappuchino there since it’s 37 degrees. Bloody hot! Luckily I took my hat with me which I customised for Ibiza with my MOOST Wanted headbands (you can get those at the Hippie market in Las Dalias).


Ibiza city is nice for a stroll through the old town and the view from the highest wall is a must see.

La Brasa – Carrer de Pere Sala 3 – Ibiza City
A nice spot for lunch or dinner in Ibiza city is La Brasa. For tasty seafood and tapas under the beautiful trees on the patio. La Brasa is super romantic during the evening when all the lights are on.


We walk all the way back from the old harbour to the marina. The boats in the harbour are huge! I always wonder which celebrities are spending their holiday there.

Passion Cafe – Paseo Juan Carlos Primero 23 – Marina Ibiza City
The best place for food in the harbour is Passion Cafe. There are several locations on the Island, like in Playa d’en Bossa. All the food at Passion Cafe is organic and the menu is full of healthy choices. I order one of the home made lemonades and the quinoa fritters.


After exploring the island we go back to the villa of our friends. Drinking bubbly in the pool and enjoying the last sun before we go for dinner.

Nikky Beach – Av S Argamassa, Santa Eulalia del Río
When we’re in Ibiza the new Nikky Beach is only open for a few days yet. The menu is international with an Asian twist. The sushi is fantastic! We had the dragon boats, so delicious. Nikky Beach Ibiza also nice during the day. Rent a bed there to enjoy the sun.

Babylon Beach Bar – Santa Eulalia Del Río
After dinner we go to Babylon beach club for drinks. Another spot where you can hang around all day. Babylon Beach Club is our last spot before clubbing!

Day 3 – Ibiza Travel Guide

If you go to Ibiza I highly recommend renting a car. That way you can also do something nice on your last day! Close to the airport you find Las Salinas beach (also named Ses Salines). The airport at Ibiza is small and if you’re there one hour before your flight leaves you should be fine.

Sa Trinxa – Ses Salines beach
Don’t expect a quiet calm beach when going to Ses Salines. In the summer months it’s super busy there. There are several beach bars there like Malibu Beach Club and Jockey Beach Club. At Salines we like Sa Trinxa best. It’s a bit more relaxed and laid back and they play good music. Last minutes to enjoy the island life on Ibiza with a cold beer.


From Ses Salines beach you’re back at the airport in little over 10 minutes.

Bye, bye Ibiza! I will come back soon :-).
