The Old Town in Ibiza is beautifully quaint and rich in history. The town is built in and around the castle walls. All the streets are made of cobblestones and the little passages that are full of shops and restaurants are great to explore.
We went to Los Bodegueros just on the outskirts of the Old Town because it was easy for us to leave our suitcases here before we went to the airport and then grab a cab from the main road.
There were four of us and we ordered lots of different tapas plates as we were about to get a flight home back to London and it would be ages until we would have a meal again.
The Prawns Pil Pil came still bubbling away in the little plate. They weren’t overcooked though even though they seems to still be cooking away in the plate.
The tapas platter we chose came with a potato and seafood salad, chorizo sausages, calamari and seafood croquettes. We of course also ordered patatas bravas and padron peppers because what is tapas without these two dishes?
And finally we also ordered the ham platter which came with a selection of different ham slices, bread and the tomato sauce to spread onto the bread slices.
Everything was absolutely delicious (I genuinely cannot fault anything), the service was great, and we were so glad they were open and serving food even though it was only 5pm.
I have to be honest, the idea of Ibiza never appealed to me. In my mind, Ibiza was very different to how I experienced it.
I thought that I needed to go once to see what it was all about and I was surprised at how beautiful the island actually is, how good the food is and how much fun I had.
One place I found particularly beautiful is Cala Comte, a secluded beach with the clearest water. When I swam in the sea I could see schools of large fish swimming around me and it was amazing.
There are only two restaurants in this part of the island and we decided to go one of the restaurants called Sunset Ashram for dinner.
We sat down, ordered our drinks and food and then witnessed the most beautiful sunset ever! It was absolutely stunning and we all sat facing it as the sun went down. Once the sun fully set and it went down below the ocean ahead of us, the whole beach burst into applause, wolf whistles and cheering. It was quite a heart warming moment to be a part of to be honest.
The food was really well cooked and presented – I just wish there was a bit more of it because it was so delicious! It was a little pricier than the normal restaurant in Spain but it was worth it for the beach, sunset, and views.
I had the tuna steak which was cooked to perfection. Perfectly seared on the outside and pink on the inside with some gorgeous flavours that didn’t take away from the natural flavours of the fish.
We stayed well into the evening and shared a dessert platter between us all. It was very relaxed and we were not rushed out at all.
