One Day in Ibiza

What can I say about the island of Ibiza that wasn’t written, sung, said or lived already. This single island has probably more history than America itself, and it cannot be summarized in a single post, let alone in a one day visit.

Most likely and just like me, you know about Ibiza by its fame of uncontrolled party scene, home of famous DJ’s and summer paradise for celebrities. Well, that’s what I have been told about it. Now, let me tell you about the other side of the island that’s not so well known because it’s way less profitable, but not any less charming.

Qué puedo decir de la isla de Ibiza que no se haya escrito, cantado, dicho y vivido ya. Una sola isla que tiene más historia que toda América en conjunto no puede resumirse en un solo post, y mucho menos en una visita de un día.

Muy probablemente y al igual que yo, conozcas a Ibiza por su fama de fiesta descontrolada, hogar de DJ’s famosos y paraíso de verano de celebridades. Bueno, al menos eso era lo que me habían contado a mí. Ahora, déjenme contarles acerca del otro lado que no se dice tanto porque es menos lucrativo, pero que no por eso resulta menos encantador.

 
 

Forget about the preconceived image of Ibiza you had if you haven’t visited it yet, prepare yourself with comfortable clothes and lots of sunscreen. Go and rent a motorcycle for 45 euros a day and feel like you’re in your own low budget film, the kind where italians go and visit Spain for the first time in order to change their pasta and risotto habits for seafood and a slice of greixonera.

A motorcycle and a small tank of gasoline is all you need in order to visit the not-so-hidden treasures of Ibiza, the charming creeks that sponsor all the blue sea, sand and visions of castles in the distance surrounded by green landscapes.

Olvídate de la imagen de Ibiza que tengas si es que aún no la has visitado, y prepárate con ropa cómoda y mucho protector solar. Alquila una motocicleta por 45 euros al día y siéntete como si estuvieras en tu propia película de bajo presupuesto en donde italianos visitan España para cambiar la pasta y el risotto por mariscos y un trozo de greixonera.

Una moto y un pequeño tanque de gasolina es todo lo que necesitas para visitar los tesoros no-tan-escondidos de Ibiza, las encantadoras calas que son patrocinadoras de mar azul, arena y visiones de castillos a lo lejos rodeados de verdes paisajes.

However, so much green is actually obscured by the amount of blue you will encounter in your visit. No matter where you see, you won’t be able to ignore all the perfect landscapes filled in shades of blue that you will feel the urge to take with your phone, without counting the added value of the charm of the old town, where drinking a glass of wine is as comforting as it is cheap. No one said Ibiza it’s just party, that’s only a minuscule part of the beauty that will remain in your skin as memories in the shape of a tan.

What it’s well said about Ibiza is that one day won’t be enough in order to get to know it, but enough to make you fall in love. So I hope for a new opportunity to visit it again, rent a motorcycle and create the second part of my low budget film a la italiana.

Sin embargo, tanto verde se ve realmente opacado ante la cantidad de azul que encontrarás en tu visita. No importa a dónde veas, no te podrás librar de paisajes perfectos teñidos de azul que no podrás dejar de tomar con tu teléfono, sin contar el valor agregado del casco antiguo, en donde tomar una copa de vino resulta tan reconfortante como barato. Nadie dijo que Ibiza era solo fiesta, esa es solo una minúscula parte de la belleza que se quedará grabada como memorias en tu piel en forma de un bronceado.

Lo que sí se ha dicho de Ibiza es que es imposible conocerla en un solo día, así que espero un día poder regresar de nuevo, rentar una motocicleta y crear la segunda parte de mi pequeño filme de bajo presupuesto a la italiana.
