Saving up enough cash to pay for a summer trip to
The gritty underground scene remains. But these days so does style and service. And yet even then there's no reason to remortgage the house in order to fashion once in a lifetime memories.
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
When it comes to elevating your party experience at Ibiza Rocks Hotel, the trick is to round up six of your best buddies, with everyone chipping in to book a daybed for €500. In return, you'll get your own private area, €500's worth of food and drinks credit, full-on event access, table service and high speed wi-fi privileges. When you compare the price of booking a daybed to the cost of buying six door tickets and round of drinks the crazy truth is that there's no difference in price.
Hire A Car
The new Ford Fiesta is a wonderful little car with great fuel consumption… but hiring one probably isn’t going to define your summer. Instead, club together with your buddies to rent an iconic Ford Mustang convertible with a romping 4.7 litre, V8 engine. All of the cars available from Mustang Adventures have been restored to racing condition with original parts. And if you're thinking of taking your hired ride club hopping, Mustang Adventures will even supply you with a driver so you and your mates can indulge in a spot of boozing without having to worry about the bronze.

Make-up artist Sheena O'Brien has been working full time in Ibiza for the last five years. Her clients range from bridal parties who need fixing-up for their big day, as well as groups of friends heading out to one of the many day parties taking place across the island. So call Sheena to your hotel or villa and get brushed up beneath the air-con, safe in the knowledge that the girls at Muse only use cruelty free vegan products. Nice.

The beaches in San Antonio Town are fine for a quick dip, but they're not particularly aspirational. To really meld with the cosmic vibe of the island take a bus or a taxi to Cala Salada, then make the short hike over the rocks until you come to arguably the most jaw-dropping beach on the island, the idyllic Cala Saladeta. The water here is crystal clear and you won't find a single jagged rock to mash-up your manicured toes. But even more importantly, perhaps, the shoreline is served daily by a sun-dried posse of beach bums hell-bent on selling you freshly made sandwiches and ice cold mojitos. All you have to do is laze back like the rest of us and hand over another €5 note when you require your next dark rum-inspired refreshment.

Those of you who prefer a little more adventure at the beach are advised to make Cala Comte your first port of call. But before you hit the water it goes without saying that you must acquire a special full-face snorkel mask, which you can buy from Decathlon, as well as lots of other outlets on the island. Once you have your snorkel gear paid for, round up your mates and paddle out into the

Before flying out to explore the best rave dens Ibiza has to offer, it makes sense to acquire the best techno-inspired clothing you can. Otherwise you won't look very important on your party snaps. Now a firm favourite with DJs and clubbers alike, Acid87's cotton t-shirts and festival garments have become a major staple on Ibiza's best dancefloors. Top-tier DJs repping the Acid87 look this summer include CamelPhat, Solardo, Heidi and Richy Amhed. Buy online before you travel or seek out Zero Six West Clothing in San Antonio. You'll also find Acid87 gear vending in Ibiza's airport departure lounge.
Originally starting out in the UK, hosting private shindigs in manor houses for ‘friends and friends of friends’, this intimate villa-party-style experience took the White Isle by storm last summer. In 2019, Shhh… are set to host a limited series of pop-up parties at secret locations around the island, from luxury hotels to sun-licked beach clubs. The first of these took place recently at the mother of all lavish boutique venues, the hidden, hedonistic house of fun that is Pikes Hotel.
