Summer is over but not for the English people. Since the government announced the second lockdown in the United Kingdom, the number of private flights to southern countries has increased. Spain is among the most popular destinations, specifically the south of Spain and, of course, Ibiza.
This is not the first time that the English have escaped to the island to spend the lockdown. El Diario de Ibiza reported in mid-March that private flights from London To Ibiza had increased considerably after 48 private flights landed at Ibiza airport in just one weekend. The same sources announced that almost 100 private flights a day were registered in July.
On October 31st, the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced the second lockdown in England. Some of the restrictions include traveling that is not urgent or important and large family gatherings.
Under these circumstances, private flight companies have observed an increase in demand for their services. Not only have they strengthened relationships with their loyal customers, but they have gained new ones. PrivateJetFinder helps you to find, compare, and book private flights to the island if you are also looking to escape from the lockdown.
Celebrate Christmas with a few degrees more, delicious Mediterranean food and entertainment everywhere. Here are our recommendations:
Get lost in Dalt Vila.
Dalt Vila is the old part of the city, and it was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, for its biodiversity and culture. This title is well deserved since the city is preserved in perfect condition after 2,500 years. Dalt Vila is history, culture, and a balance between the classic and the modern. Walk along its cobbled streets and explore all it has to offer: lovely white houses, artisanal shops, art galleries, restaurants, museums, as well as the castle and the cathedral of Dalt Vila. Do not leave without enjoying the stunning view from the university square and the belvedere.
Get Christmas presents in the best shopping areas.
Ibiza is excellent for a day of shopping. Dalt Vila offers a great selection of boutiques where you can get souvenirs and fashionable clothes. Marina Botafoch is the place to go if you are looking for glamour and exclusivity. Marina Botafoch is one of the most luxurious areas of Ibiza, as well as its shopping selection. You can find brands such as Blue Ibiza, D.Lain, and Ermanno Scervino. But there is more, Ibiza is also known for its hippie and free style. Visit traditional markets such as Las Dalias Market and Sant Joan Market. Both markets are opened all year long.
Taste the Mediterranean gastronomy also in winter.
Ibiza has one of the best Mediterranean cuisines in the world. In the cold months, warm up with a good bullit in El Bigotes. If you are loyal to paella, then we recommend the restaurant Es Torrent, located in the south of Ibiza, or Sa Nansa, right in the city center. It does not matter where you eat, but do not forget to leave room for Flaó, a typical Ibizan dessert similar to a cheesecake, and for a café caleta.
Relax in Ibiza and enjoy its nature.
Ibiza is no longer only known for its nightlife. But also for the peacefulness (especially in the winter months) that its nature offers. The Calas of San Josep is perfect for a sunny hiking morning on the cliffs, even in winter. It is a real wellness experience, thanks to the tranquillity, the sea breeze, and the views. Another must is Santa Eulalia Del Rio. Santa Eulalia is a small municipality located in the east of the island. It offers a large selection of routes for hiking. Es Amunts, in the north of Ibiza, is also a great choice to spend time in nature, thanks to its natural reserve.
The best sunsets are in Ibiza.
The white island is the perfect place to enjoy the sunset. Cala d’Hort is usually one of the best locations to experience the most magical time of the day, even in winter. Another highly recommended place is Sunset Ashram in Cala Conta. It is a very popular place, so if you want to enjoy its cocktails and asian dishes during the golden hour, we recommend you to book a table in advance.
After all, it’s not surprising that English people prefer to spend the lockdown on the white island. Ibiza has it all, every day of the year.
