Those in the know head for Ibiza this October
30 September 2009
With temperatures still up in the mid 20 degrees centigrade and water temperature warmer than in May and June, Ibiza is a popular spot in October for those in the know.
Many of the island’s celebrities who treat the White Isle as their second home flock back to enjoy the peace and quiet, lazy days on the near empty beaches and long al-fresco lunches in the coolest beach bars and restaurants.
Resident DJ and villa owner Pete Tong is quoted as saying “Pretty much everything stays open throughout October. I like going for seafood at Salinas beach which is impossibly packed and completely crazy in high season but tranquil and lovely later on. I'll also go to the marina at Botafoch, Ibiza Town and Sa Caleta and Cala Jondal beaches.
“Pacha is good fun too; unlike all the other clubs, it's open year round. The local people reclaim the club and you rarely hear anything but Spanish being spoken. They do things their own way too. You can be in Pacha at 2am in November and it'll be completely empty. Then, at 4am they'll be a rush and the place is suddenly packed. Everyone who owns a house on the island says that their favourite time is May and October. All the people who live here make an effort to see each other and there's more of a community feel.”
So join the ‘in crowd’ and hit the White Isle this autumn, Easyjet currently has flights from £25.99 one way including all taxes and charges throughout October.
Accommodation in the newly built villas at Can Lluc is currently on a special launch offer with a 20% reduction. Can Lluc is set in the charming San Rafael valley situated right in the heart of the island so is a perfect base for exploring. The villas are ideal for families or for those looking for extra privacy combined with the resources and amenities a hotel can offer, such as breakfast and a relaxing spa. Rates are from €440 per night including the launch discount. Double rooms start from €180 per night, both including breakfast.
