My first day in Ibiza was incredibly long. Considering I started my day at five in the morning and spent the better part of 15 hours walking, exploring, and hiking, I’m impressed I didn’t pass out midway through the afternoon. It’s actually quite surprising to realize just how long the sun stays up when you don’t spend half the day asleep. Regardless, I feel it is a requirement that while on the island of Ibiza one must remain sleep deprived for the duration of their stay.
For years, a trip to Ibiza has remained at the top of my bucket-list. This tiny island located 50 miles off the coast of Spain is for fans of electronic music what Mecca is to Muslims. Ibiza is world renowned as the epicenter of electronic music and, for those even slightly interested in the genre, is a destination that must be visited at least once in your lifetime. For those of you who ever get the opportunity to step foot on this island, do not expect a wholesome, family-friendly experience unless you stay outside of the two main cities: Ibiza Town and St. Antoni de Portmany. In the central areas of these cities, you need to mentally prepare yourself for everything to be overpriced, flashy, and fake. Overall, there is a general hedonistic feeling that permeates the air and makes Vegas seem like Disney World.
