A lot of people have preconceptions about Ibiza.
DO NOT. Trust me when I say this, it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been!
Two weeks ago I got the chance to escape the craziness of London and take in this incredible island. Life can be hard sometimes…
My boyfriend and I met his parents out in Ibiza. They go every year and stay in a traditional Ibithan villa which overlooks the bay of Calla Tarida.
The house sits on top of the cliff, giving it the most beautiful views. (A great place to watch people on their boats!)
The ocean is just a short walk down the cliff steps and is the most insane shade of blue!
Look at that water.
Bendik’s parents were amazing hosts and served the yummiest and freshest food.
Gazpacho is probably one of my all time favourite meals and my tummy was very happy eating it after a busy morning of swimming, snorkelling and bathing in the sun.
On our second day we went to explore Old Town Ibiza.
Just a few of my favourite things…
It is full of colourful Ibithan houses. Lots of cute shops and great restaurants.
We walked up these small, cobbled, house lined streets to the cathedral. It was super hot and sweaty walk but completely worth it when you reach the top and you see the views over the Port and Formentera.
If you find yourself in Ibiza visit the old town, it has a so much charm.
I am always finding places to practice my handstands. Good thing Bendik is on hand to take snaps. Really good that he loves it too…
In summer life goes upwards for the residents of the town houses. Look at all those ideal rooftop yoga locations!!
There were so many brightly coloured doors, cacti and adorable balconies.
Of course when you are in hot country ice cream is always necessary.
100% go and check out the cathedral if you are visiting Ibiza. It was built in the 13th century and you truly feel like you have stepped back in time.
Hope you guys enjoyed these snapshots.
I have so many photographs I have split my post into two parts.
If you can not wait for the second half find more photographs and boomerangs of me diving into the sea on my instagram here.
