A Tranquil Getaway to Ibiza

After moving houses within Barcelona recently, I was craving some relaxing weekender somewhere close and sunny. I spontaneously booked flights to Ibiza for a weekend in April and an all-inclusive hotel (yes, you read correctly!) close to the beach. That this would turn out to be the best idea and one of the most relaxing holidays I’ve had so far, came as quite a surprise to myself.

Ibiza had seen a good amount of rain before I arrived but my luggage remained optimistic so I got in that holiday mood packing bathing suits, my espadrilles and a beach hat for the weekend ahead.

And neither me nor my luggage were disappointed. Ibiza welcomed us with soothing sunshine and a comfy hotel.

The Marble Stella Maris hotel might not be my cup of tea during summer but in off season it turned out be an excellent accommodation. The food was decent, the rooms stylish, the pools many and the beaches close by.

Before heading to the beach (after relaxing by the pool), I made a quick side-trip to Cap Negret.

But enough of wild nature! I wanted some tranquil beach scenery and I should get it at postcard-worthy Cala Gracioneta and the easy-going chiringuito around.

The water was still a bit chill but perfect to take a first dip of the year. The day continued with some more pool-side relaxing, mojitos and strolling around. Oh, easy Ibiza life!

The beach called again in the evening to take another stroll and watch the sundown over the peacefully calm sea.

On Sunday I took off from the west coast and over to Ibiza Town to explore the island’s capital before heading for the airport later that day. Ibiza Town reminded me a lot of Andalusian cities like Tarifa and thus topped off the holiday spirit of the whole trip.

And so it was time after tons of ice cream, coffee, cervezas and tapas to leave that island again. I definitely took some easy holiday feeling with me back to Barcelona and cannot wait to explore the Balearics more in depth soon!
