#IbizaChallenge with Swimwear365

August 19, 2014

The Ibiza hype this year has really given me beach holiday blues. The Island has been a super big hit with a lot of A-List celebs this Summer! For a good month I've had the sudden urge to revisit the amazing island and live life for a few days! I really do need a good ol' beach getaway, and Swimwear365 could possibly make this become a reality!

I've been challenged to give an itinerary of what I would get up to in Ibiza for 48 hours, and trust me, there is a lot one can do in that short space of time!
Swimwear365 are giving one lucky blogger a chance to win an amazing prize, which involves them being jetting off to Ibiza with a friend, kitted out in a fabulous Swimwear365 bikini and spending Thursday-Sunday at the world’s favourite summer partying destination.
Whether you want to hit the world-famous Pacha nightclub and watch David Guetta mix some tunes or just relax on the beach with a cocktail in hand at the Bora Bora Beach Club, 48 hours in Ibiza is the perfect way to see summer out in style! Check out extra info about the competition here.

Ibiza is commonly known as being the party island that never sleeps, but it's so much more than that! From lively San Antonio to quiet Old Ibiza town, there's a little something for everyone, and I happen to love a bit off both!

My itinerary


Thursday
It's close to midnight and we have just landed, making our way to our hotel a little tired, but sleep is not in our vocabulary this time around!

Friday
With our first 24 hours on the go, we start prepping for a crazy night (or should I say morning!) ahead. It's off with the airport attire, and on with the party gear, for a fun time ahead at the world-famous Pacha nightclub, with David Guetta working his magic and blasting tunes for us through the sound systems, through the early hours of Friday. 

We're up again! It's 9am and anything close to refuelling and getting some rest in Ibiza is equal to catching a tan on a beautiful beach! We get ourselves prepped for some much needed beach time. After a few 'we have arrived in Ibiza selfies', we head out to Relish for some light Mediterranean cuisine. Arriving at San Antonio's beach front, we catch the next boat to Cala Bassa Beach! Following a boat ride experience full of fresh air, warm breeze and surreal views of the ocean, we arrive at our destination. Now with a cocktail (or two) at hand from the beach bar, it's time to daydream and soak in the sun (with plenty of sunscreen applied of course) in our Swimwear365 bikinis!

The little black dress paired with the snakeskin printed block heels is perfect for our night at Pacha not to forget a spot of deep red lippy! I've opted for a casual get up for our morning trip to Cala Bassa beach, with the loose flowing top and denim shorts as a nice cover up for my Swimwear365 bikini! 


After a relaxed morning involving sipping on a few too many cocktails, catching a tan, and dipping our feet into the crystal clear Mediterranean sea water. It's time to party it up on Bora Bora down at Playa D’en Bossa, first not skipping out on a quick brunch at TAPAS restaurant for the best tapas on the island in the heart of San Antonio.
It's 12.30pm and we're here! - Bora Bora Beach Club ... the sun is shining, music blasting, my Pina Colada's keep coming, and the crowd is crazy. The ultimate daytime Ibiza party experience! My beach party gear is bright and cheerful just like everyone surrounding me. Hours of endless laughs, dancing and friend making pass us by, and hunger kicks in, so we make our way to Moorea Grill Restaurant for some traditional fresh Paella! Taking a step back from all the action, we can muster up some energy for a spot of fun water activities along San Antonio's beachfront! From paragliding to water-skiing, there are endless activities to do in the clear waters! A spot of snorkeling would be included - a great way to enjoy and observe the beauty of the sea!
It's back to our hotel for a quick nap, and back out again for dinner. The sun is setting and restaurant of choice is Cafe Mambo - the most popular sunset strip restaurant/bar and we're just in time to watch the sun set and disappear for the night.

I've gone for pieces that I can use to transform my look easily throughout the day. I've paired a fringed bikini with a kaftan for partying on Bora Bora beach, decked out in gold shimmering body paint too! Slip off the kaftan and I'm ready to get stuck into our water activities! For our late casual dinner at Cafe Mambo, a cute plain crop top and bright shorts layered again with this gorgeous kaftan and accessorised with gold nails, jewellery and a spot of gold eyeshadow.

Saturday
Our last 24 hours will be a little more chilled as we've partied to our hearts' content! We're up early for an energising breakfast and crave a good ol' cultural kick, so we head off to Ibiza town. Feeling adventurous, we rent scooters and explore the picturesque streets of the Old Ibiza town (D’Alt Vila), ride along the coastline, to the countryside of the Island, and back to D’Alt Vila, where we get lost on the winding cobble stoned streets, admiring the towering views. Forget a tour guide, we're doing it freestyle, with my camera at hand of course. The day is really about exploring everything the island has to offer in terms of natural beauty!  
Lunch is served at El Macao - a fab restaurant located near the harbour, and we feast on the most delicious Italian cuisine whilst taking in the beautiful setting and views. Next we head down to an atmospheric market that is of course the oh so popular Las Dalias Hippy Market in San Carlos, hoping for a bargain or two on hand made clothing and beautiful pieces of jewellery! 

When you visit Ibiza there's no way you can miss out on a quick trip to it's neighbouring island, and chilled out sister - Formentera, known as the ‘last paradise of the Mediterranean' just a short ferry ride away. We settle down on the white sandy beach and set up a small picnic, taking in the natural beauty of the quiet island. 

Back to our beloved island in the evening, we head to the infamous Café del Mar to watch the sun set with our fellow holiday-goers - a place to just chill out and reminisce about our whirlwind 48 hours in Ibiza, and to of course consume a cocktail or two!

Sunday
We're up early to grab breakfast - some carbs to overload on, a good old Spanish omelette, and some well needed fresh immune-boosting smoothies and juices! Headed off to the airport in a very casual get-up is only right really, and it's back to England we go! What a way to end a Summer ay?!
