spring 2023: what not to miss in ibiza
Ibiza wakes up to the first warm rays of a shy Mediterranean sun, eager to leave behind the last traces of the quiet island winter. This time of the year is one of the best ones to wander through paradise avoiding tourists, and getting a glimpse -and a taste!- of how locals live and enjoy their time.
The people’s willingness and need to jump directly into spring is reflected on the amount of festivities and gatherings that take place in Ibiza’s charming villages. Below follows a selection of the suggestions we should not miss if we have the opportunity to visit the island during March, April and May of 2023.
First of all, let’s begin with the cheerful gatherings that fill the island with joy in many of the island’s hotspots, villages, and beaches. To enjoy exquisite banquets and party till down, it might seem like no big deal on an island that has plenty of these to offer the whole year… but don’t believe you’ve seen it all. This spring let yourself be surprised by the magic of the island’s mesmerizing moments and less crowded ambiance.
Let’s first focus on gastronomy… after all, who doesn’t love good food? Reserve your sundays for lunch and live music at Sa Caleta restaurant, located directly on the beach Es Bol Nou and standing still since 1988. Delight yourself with magnificent local cuisine, freshly catched fish and their delicious paellas. Don’t miss trying their signature Cafe Sa Caleta– this house speciality is infused with herbs, lemon and orange peel and a good splash of brandy. Later on, head to Las Dalias hippie market, favourite among holiday-makers and island residents as a place of true bohemian inspiration, nice food, shopping, craftwork and local art. Every day of the week Hostal La Torre celebrates its unique sunset DJ sessions with cliff views to the sparkling Mediterranean sea and Ibiza’s best sound. This place is perfect for moonlight dinners and evening cocktails with family and friends.
If you are feeling like dining in a spot with special charm and have passion for live music, don’t think twice and head to Cas Costas Grill & Market. On Thursdays from the 20: 30h you’ll be able to enjoy different music artists performing during dinner with a wonderful fireplace at the backround. The tasty Mediterranean cuisine is a hallmark of Cas Costas and its spacious and beautiful facilities that include an organic garden where it is impossible not to forget about stress.
Join the popular Pincho (or pintxo) Festival that, attention here, lasts for few weeks, every Thursday from March 16 to April 6 ! It is called Pintxa Sant Antoni, since it takes place in San Antonio where around 20 bars and restaurants will offer their wide selection of delicious, original pinchos and tapas for all tastes at a very reasonable price.The dynamics are simple, just remember: eat and repeat! Go to a bar, order the pincho you fancy the most and a drink, enjoy it and move to the next bar.
