Ibiza: not just for ravers – The Times

Ibiza is not just for ravers, despite the impression given by budget airline T&Cs. Ahead of my trip to the Mediterranean island famous for its mad-for-it party scene, Ryanair emails to warn me not to turn up drunk for the flight, bring booze onto the plane or display “antisocial behaviour”.

Some visitors find a classier way to travel, including the original 24-hour party people, who are all grown up and have made their millions. “You see the same guys every week on the PJs,” says Aaron Simpson, executive chairman of the global lifestyle management company Quintessentially Group.

Flights were delayed and holidaymakers heading home from the Spanish island were forced to wait in the heat for several hours.

More than 140 employees, who are complaining about work overload and their salaries, have gone on an indefinite strike.

One passenger, Krystal, tweeted: “Ibiza airport strikes not cool.”

Another passenger, Simon Farrell, said: “I had to queue for two hours and it was horrendous.

“There were hardly any staff on security and it was really hot.

“It was chaos. Kids were crying and everyone was fed up.



“It was a miserable way to end the holiday.”

Passengers were advised to arrive at least three hours before their flights and there were reports police were called in to replace the striking staff.

This weekend more than 1.000 flights are operating out of the airport in Eivissa and around 160,000 people are set to pass through the terminal.

The delays come after British tourists were left appalled in May when cleaners went on strike at Ibiza Airport.

Angry tourists posted images on social media of overflowing bins during the walkout.

The heartstopping moment a Jet2 plane suddenly plunged towards the sea was captured on camera by a terrified mum who sent her husband what she believed was a final “I love you” text.

Nickola Tye filmed the horror plunge after oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling on the plane from Ibiza to Leeds.

Hidden Ibiza: The Secret Lives of the Island’s Bohemians, Revealed – Vogue.com

Of the world’s famed hippie-tinged aesthetic and hedonistic nightlife as it is for the steady stream of eccentrics who arrive each summer on its cerulean shores—some of whom can’t resist making the island their forever home.

It is this motley crew—and the sun-dappled lives they’ve eked out among the island’s rocky coves and fabled abodes—that inspired Ibiza Bohemia, a new book out this summer from Assouline. In nearly 300 glossy pages, a treasure trove of freewheeling voyeurism unfolds: the flower-filled pool where a yoga instructor floats, the cushion-layered porch of a finca inhabited by the manager of an Hermès store; the rippled folds of a cave that has been the makeshift home of a former record producer for over two years.
