At the beginning of the year my girlfriends and I spontaneously decided to go on a short girls trip to Ibiza this summer. Said and done. We wanted to dive into the party life of Ibiza and soak up as much Ibiza Flair possible throughout the day.
In this article I’ll show you a lovely itinerary for a long weekend on Ibiza. Another article with recommendations for the best beach clubs will be published too.
The arrival – again no luck with the flights this year
While my friends found quite a cheap flight from Milan Malpensa to Ibiza I didn’t have any luck. I was sure that there were direct flights from Berlin. But no. In the end, I just booked a flight to Milan and from there to Ibiza the day after. Unfortunately my flight to Milan was cancelled 45 minutes before departure. Luckily, I’d found another flight via Dusseldorf to Ibiza the next day. While my friends landed at 8:30am I got there at around 1:00 pm. Let’s hope that I’ll get the 250€ reimbursement back. If not I’m already at 400€ for all flights (I could’ve flown to Thailand for that money).
Girls trip to Ibiza
LUNCH AT LA PALOMA CAFÈ
After my girls picked me up from the airpot we cruised right away to the stunning La Paloma Café, which so many people recommended us.
- Little info: La Paloma Restaurant and La Paloma Café are the same, which we weren’t sure when booking a table.
We arrived there at around 3:00am. The atmosphere is just so relaxing. You’ll sit beautifully and in calm in the middle of lemon and olive trees. Of course, we were starving. On the menu you’ll find delicious bowls – falafel, hummus, soba and many more bowls. We also ordered a bottle of white wine to cheer onto our trip. The dishes took a bit longer than expected – Spanish easiness. The prices are, like anywhere in Ibiza, quite high. In my opinion they’re still fine at La Paloma Café. We had a great first lunch there.

Where to STAY on Ibiza
Having rented a car we were quite flexible where to stay. We decided to rent an apartment at the East coast, which was also quite close to Ibiza’s city centre. We stayed at Cana Sofia, which was absolutely perfect for our needs – parking in front of the hotel (if you’re lucky) and a supermarket across the street. It was a little bit a pity that our rooms faced the streets which were quite loud on Saturday. Overall, we payed around 35€/night which is definitely a great deal for Ibiza.
Where to PARTY on Ibiza
Of course, we had to dive into the party life of Ibiza. We’d already bought tickets for the Martin Garrix concert at Ushuaïa (it is definitely worth to get them online before. We paid 50€ instead of 60€ entrance fee). Since we got there quite early we enjoyed by the pool and danced us in the mood to the djs before Martin Garrix. Little by litte, the club hotel got crowded. Crazy how many people fit into the stage.
- The cocktail prices on the other hand are crazy: 14€ for a desperados and 17€ for a long drink. Just for interest, we asked how much a table and bottle in the VIP area would be. 1400€ for the table for 5 people and 500€ for only the bottle. Crazy!
Luckily, we can also party without drinking lots of alcohol (which was great the day after). The concert was definitely great and so worth it. The high entrance fee was definitely worth it. Our evening ended with some midnight snacks at McDonalds in the Port D’Eivissa ;-).
Ibiza BEACH life
There are so many beautiful beaches on Ibiza. The East and the North are a lot calmer than the West and South. We’ve seen a bit of everything. One day we stayed at the calm Cala Nova in the East, the other day we drove to the West the breathtaking Cala Conta (Platges de Comte).
- I’ve marked all the beautiful beaches in my Ibiza Google Map (see below)
Cala Conta (Platges de Comte)
Platges de Comte, also called Cala Conta, is such a beautiful spot. The water is so crystal clear and blue. We were there on a Saturday and it was indeed crowded. Therefore, if you prefer a calmer day there, weekends should be avoided. For lunch you can eat at Sunset Ashram or head to the close by S’Illa Bosca. Our day at this Ibiza beach was just great.
- Beware: there are only a few to hide in the shade. It’s recommended to bring your own umbrella. There are a few sun beds to the left side of Sunset Ashram restaurant, which you can book before hand. The sun beds on the right side are not so beautiful.
The four days on Ibiza where great to get a first impression of the island. I recommend partying right on the first day (if you’re in the mood) and just relax the days after. Maybe you’ll get into the mood again and there are a lot of more spots to check out.
