In the morning we walked into Ibiza old town, which wasn't far at all, and for a change there was plenty of shade and a nice sea breeze. Ibiza town doesn't have a beach (that we could find) but has the obligatory castle on the hill, narrow roads & pretty houses that you see in pretty much all the old towns of the cities in Southern Spain. A lot of these pretty houses are now tourist and clothing shops or restaurants. The area mainly consists of a large marina/port, but not nearly as many yachts and boats as Mallorca.
As everyone knows Ibiza is all about clubbing and partying so we had to go to a club. The Balinese lady from the restaurant last night recommended Ushuaïa, a hotel with a massive open air night club, at Playa del Bossa, The club was open from 3pm-12pm (our kind of hours - no need to worry about having a nap before hand!).
The club was huge, the area is massive, it was €35 (~$50) each to get in, drinks were extra and very expensive. After walking around Playa del Bossa and having dinner, we arrived around 8pm. The area was very different to where we are staying, the crowd is younger, the beaches and the whole set up geared more towards relaxing on the beach during the day and partying at night.
|Maybe they should call this a dayclub instead of a nightclub|
There were girls arriving in bathers, high heel shoes and not much else, lots of people had temporary "Ants" tattoos (the name of the night at the club). Once it got darker the lighting setup was good, the stage was located at one end of the area with pools in the middle. We headed down to the stage for a while and were very close to the front with the "alien" dancing girls on stage and a chubby DJ who looked like he should have been in home in front of the TV with a pizza. The DJ's that play here are world famous and apparently do amazing things, maybe we're showing our age (or maybe we were on the wrong drugs??), but we just couldn't see what the big deal was, though everyone was in a party frame of mind.
As far as night clubs go this was interesting but the music was too samey for us, the show we went to at the Coco Bongo Club in Cancun back in 2007 or thereabouts left this one for dead!
