Dalt Vila: Ibiza's Hidden Gem.


When you think of Ibiza, your first thoughts are probably sun, sangria and a bunch of other S words. It's all about the clubs, the drinks, the beaches - people go there to see the David Guetta's and the Kygo's of the world, right?

I love getting away from the main tourist hotspots and exploring the local towns when I'm abroad; I didn't appreciate it enough when I was younger but now it's a top priority on my itinerary, although I didn't expect to do it in Ibiza.

We - my friends and I - passed through Ibiza Town (Eivissa) before the second leg of a one-hour bus journey and had a quick stroll around the shops to kill time. A few days later, we made a day trip of it and headed towards an old castle we spotted previously.

 They didn't stay white for very long during this trip...

Little did we know that the castle was part of Dalt Vila, Ibiza's Old Town. Here you'll find a museum, cute cafés, quaint houses and the most amazing views of the island. Great if you want to burn off a few alcohol or junk food induced calories as there's a good amount of walking involved. Our journey didn't reach the top near the clock tower so I imagine the views are even better - if possible.

 Admiring the views whilst crying inside as my flight home was the next day.

If you ever visit Ibiza, a trip to Vila d'Eivissa (Ibiza Old Town) is a must do!
You'll not find better views of the island anywhere else and it's the perfect setting to wind down before or after a night out.

As dramatic and millennial as this sounds, this little discovery refuelled my desire to work abroad. The concrete jungle can get pretty boring after a while. I wouldn't mind these views more often...


  1. I would love to visit Ibiza one day! Beautiful pics.


  2. Wow that last photo! It's such a treasure traveling and visiting the local spots instead of the tourist destinations. I feel like you have a much fuller experience at these local spots because you can immerse yourself in it instead of worrying about fighting with other tourists for a glimpse of the view :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
