Jesus, Ibiza

December 30th, 2008

jesus, ibizaSeparated from nearby Ibiza town by the, now threatened, marshland of “Ses Feixes”, Jesus is actually part of the municipality of Santa Eulalia.

This small but busy little village is home to one of the island’s greatest art treasures a 16th Century altar screen of “The Virgin and Child”.

This is remarkable in that it has survived the invasions of the past 500 years intact! The village itself seems to attract more traffic than almost anywhere else on the island, for no obvious reason except that the surrounding hills groan under the weight of villas built to enjoy the iconic view of the nearby old town of Ibiza.

In the summer, Bon Lloc tends to be the favourite morning haunt of the club crowd going home north…

Ibiza Town / Eivissa

December 29th, 2008

ibiza townIbiza Town is the only city on the island and until recent years the only place large enough to be described as anything more than a village.

Confusingly, it is signposted all over the island as “Eivissa”, which is the Catalan name. However, fortunately the island is so small that all roads lead to Ibiza eventually, so it’s almost impossible to get lost!

The old walled town is so spectacular that it has been chosen as a World Heritage site and, as you approach the island by sea for the first time, it serves as an appropriately stunning introduction to the Pandora’s Box that is Ibiza.

Built on a high promontory jutting out into the sea, the old town with its massive walls crowned by the cathedral serves as a global icon the world over.

Forada / Buscatell, Ibiza

December 28th, 2008

forada, buscatell, ibizaThis tiny village is dominated by the Bar Can Tixedo, which used to be a supermarket and has now converted itself into one of the coolest bars on the islands.

Behind the bar is the new supermarket, next door is the neighbourhood school and over the road another house – and that’s all there is…

However, the bar more than makes up for this with a perfect front terrace for watching the world slowly trundle by… There’s an art gallery inside and internet access with wi-fi for those enjoying the sunshine on the terrace with their laptop.

The perfect spot to break your journey to San Antonio…

Figueretas, Ibiza

December 27th, 2008

figueretas, ibizaFigueretas used to be a village between Ibiza Town and Playa d’en Bossa a long time ago, but has been consumed by the ever expanding city.

It retains its name largely due to the only beach which more or less falls within the city limits. Nowadays it has established a reputation as the ‘pink’ beating heart of Ibiza.

Gay bars and accommodation predominate, but then there’s nothing wrong with the pink euro and this village has an important part to play in the global village microcosm that is Ibiza.

International Music Summit 2008 – Club panel audio

December 25th, 2008

Now you can hear the clubs panel audio. This was the first time the major clubs and a representative from the government sat at the same time in public. Unfortunately the IMS’s video didn’t work so it seems we’re the only ones with the full audio of this historic meeting.
