Last month we took a week out and headed to Ibiza for a week’s family holiday. When we booked the holiday we said we wanted to be as far as possible from the craziness that is San Antonio. So we booked a week in Playa D’en Bossa, little did we know that actually we would be right across the road from Space nightclub and next door to Ushuaia Beach Hotel (which let me tell you looks a frickin’ awesome place to both stay and party!) We panicked a bit about dealing with noise and drunk people but I’m pleased to tell you it was nothing like that and was in fact one of our favourite holidays to date.
We heard all the cliches before we headed there ‘Ibiza is beautiful’, ‘Oh lovely, the white Isle’. But we can honestly say its the complete truth! What a great place, Playa d’en Bossa beach was both beautiful but also a vibrant place to hang out with families and clubbers all in the one place.
We knew old Ibiza town was a place to be seen. So we headed there for the day, poor Fearne had to endure all the steps plus a boring old cathedral but it was a great experience. Once back in the new part of Ibiza town we sat people watching in a restaurant supping Estrella while Fearne demolished her favoured Spag Bol.
The holiday had extra importance to us as little Fearne turned 4 whilst we were there. Some cards, a my little pony, a computer game and all the jelly the all inclusive buffet could throw at her later she was a happy little bunny.
Whilst there we knew we wanted to tour the Island so we hired a car for the day and headed out in our little Fiat Panda, firstly to the Hippy Market. Fearne had her hair half braided for €20 (yes I know). We have to be honest and say this place was not for us, full of what we call TAT, not really that cheap, not very hippy and to top it all off I got told off for taking pictures. Somewhere we would avoid when we go back!
On from there we headed to San Miguel beach. One word… Beautiful! From there we drove to San Antonio just to say we had been and seen it and we didn’t stop. We carried on to see the beaches at Cala d’Hort and also Es Vedra. We then headed back North to see the famous Ibiza sunset at a place called Sunset Ashram at Cala Conta which was a tip off from our good friend Kelly who runs Boho Wedding Blog.
Sunset Ashram was an amazing place to view the Ibiza sunset, the food was bloody gorgeous and the vibe of the place was mellow with the Ibiza sunset mix being played by the DJ. It’s not a place that caters for kids but if you make alternative arrangements for them eating then this is still the place to go see ‘the sun going to sleep in the sea’ as Fearne described it. Totally magical.
The final day was spent poolside as Fearne spent 5 solid hours in the pool kicking and splashing her heart out.
Whilst out on the Isle it made us realise how much we want to photograph an Ibiza wedding or any destination wedding for that matter. We tried and failed to find a couple to do a mini shoot with whilst there but next time we go more plans will be in place. So if you are getting married in Ibiza or having a destination wedding then get in touch.
