A fierce storm swept across Ibiza for the past two days. Many planes were unable to land and were diverted. Ferries also couldn't drive. For us, a good reason to go out there and take some pictures and videos. So it's worth a look at our Ibiza Flickr album.
Flying from Germany to Ibiza in the winter months is complicated, because from 31. On 1 October, almost all direct flights from German airports to Ibiza end. Germania flies weekly from Nuremberg to Ibiza in winter, but for a passenger from Berlin or Hamburg the road to Nuremberg is too far. Guests from Cologne or Düsseldorf will find many direct flights in the winter of Amsterdam or Eindhoven. The Condor, in cooperation with Air Europa, now flies from Frankfurt to Ibiza almost daily via Mallorca in winter 2018. And even at very attractive prices (see above). You can choose between two stays in Mallorca. During a longer stay you can make a detour to Palma or simply discover the island of Mallorca a little. We tested it ourselves at the beginning of December 2018 and were very pleased. The baggage only has to be checked in once and will be passed through to the next flight.
This staircase has it all: Both the wide sublime view over Ibiza, the harbour, the castle to the airport and Formentera is breathtaking, as well as the staircase itself. The building is located in the mountains opposite Ibiza's football stadium "Estadi can Misses" and stands out from afar. It is supposedly the private construction of a millionaire, but the staircase is open to the public. You can climb enough steps here (approx. 170). Whether you start with relegation or ascent is up to everyone. Park
ing is above the staircase in the Carrer sa Noguera or below the staircase in the Carrer Arabi.

Every Sunday, Sant Joan de Labritja hosts a hippy market right in the centre of the village. Here you will find mainly dishes made in Ibiza, environmentally friendly toiletries and high-quality gift items, as well as lots of clothes, often in hippie-style. From approx. There is live music at 12 noon (once Mass in the church opposite). Locals and holidaymakers love this market with its special atmosphere. From 3pm, the first ones start dismantling their stalls so slowly. Photos and videos can be found at Flickr in the album Hippy Market in Sant Joan de Labritja. Of course, you can also visit the small village on other days of the week and discover a lot. For this we created an extra album at Flickr: Sant Joan de Labritja.

This extraordinary Es Vedrà Boat Trip a few days ago was stunning. The 3-hour drive starts in Ibiza, runs around the coast of the pristine landscapes of the south and through the glass floor of the boat we could see the seabed and a few fish. Along the way, we anchored for 20 minutes for a swim in crystal clear water. Then we continued all around the magical rock island of Es Vedrà. On the sun deck "Donna" kept us happy, she gave information about the coastal sections, the salt flats, Cala Jondal, Es Cubells, Cala D * Hort, etc. And there was a little dancing, singing and laughing. More information about this and now 6 more boat tours of Ulises Cat: www.barcoibizaformentera.com
If you want to emigrate or move to Ibiza, you are certainly looking for a good freight forwarder, if you don't want to "go down" with a transporter yourself via Barcelona, Denia or Valencia. Or you just want to have some bulky things transported to Ibiza. We had the "problem" and wanted to ship our bikes from Darmstadt to Ibiza. DHL, DPD, UPS, Hermes, etc. These services also offer, but the wheels must be packaged accordingly. Via the Facebook group Ibiza German Residents Allerlei we found the address of CARGOTIGER from Berlin. Berlin? Berlin if we want to transport something from Darmstadt to Ibiza? Yes, because CARGOTIGER can add everything suitable on the way from Berlin to Ibiza, whether from Leipzig, Cologne, Karlsruhe, Munich or anywhere else. Even a transport to Mallorca is possible. For a cheap 125 euros we have had our two mountain bikes delivered to Ibiza. Why CARGOTIGER? Over 1500 positive reviews at MyHammer (member since: 10/2009) speak for themselves. Of course, the CARGOTIGER team also offers the removals and transports in the other direction, i.e. from Ibiza to Berlin or all on this route.

Ibiza is actually not that big (572 km ²) and you could circumnavigate the island with a boat or explore it on a long hike. But it is most beautiful to explore Ibiza by bike. This requires a certain amount of fitness. Hence our tip: An e-bike tour with Coyma Sunride. There are currently nine different island tours on offer, which can easily be booked online here. The tours last between 4 and 7 hours and go along specially selected roads and paths. Address, prices, bookings, more info and photos: www.coyma-sunride.com. Read more
We have been flying to Ibiza for over 19 years, mostly in May and September. Again and again we are asked which hotel etc. We can recommend if you want to stay in Ibiza for one to two weeks. After staying at the hotels Simbad, Victoria, Ses Figueres, Grupotel Santa Eularia and Hostal Talamanca, the choice was made of the Hotel Argos right on Playa Talamanca about 17 years ago. Why? 1. There is always a free parking space on site. 2. Directly opposite the hotel is a small SPAR supermarket (cog). 3. Hotel ARGOS offers free Wi-Fi in (almost) all rooms. 4. Own freshwater pool, wind-protected with free loungers and towels (deposit). 5. Own beach right next to the hotel (partly in the shade in the afternoon). 6. Rooms with sea views with great sunrise and views of mountains, sea and Talamanca Bay. 7. Good connection to the old town (without a car) with the boat ferry at Botafoch port or on foot (approx. 2 km). 8. Playa Talamanca Beach and the surrounding area is good for jogging. 9. Many restaurants on Playa Talamanca. Tip: Cafe Flotante-typical Spanish cuisine. 10. In the evening you can also relax on the hotel beach and Playa Talamanca. 11. Car rental right in front of the hotel. 12. Playa Talamanca beach is one of the best and longest beaches on the island. 13. You can quickly walk at the Puerto Marina Botafoch with its restaurants and cafes. 14th. You have to use little the car, because a lot in the immediate vicinity. 15th. Pacha, Lio, Blue Marlin Marina, Calma, Cappuccino Cafe, etc. Easily and quickly accessible on foot. 16. The Hotel ARGOS is very central and you can quickly drive anywhere on the island. 17th. The rooms were completely renovated in 2012 and are decorated in modern white. But Hotel Argos also has a few drawbacks, if you can even call them that: 1. At the buffet, unfortunately, nothing is freshly prepared at dinner or breakfast by an extra chef or cook. (Here goes the point to the Hotel Simbad) 2nd. In the pre-and postseason, the audience is predominantly older, but it also has its advantages in terms of rest. There are certainly better and nicer hotels in Ibiza, but we just feel most at home at Hotel Argos. In the meantime, you already know some other regulars and the contact with the hotel staff-whether in the restaurant or at the reception-is also very nice and familiar. Most German and English also speak very well. Address, directions, reviews and other photos: Read more
