Farewell January and welcome February! We may be busy preparing our Ibiza villas ready for the summer ahead, but in the meantime, we always try to make time to enjoy all that the island has to offer. After one of the wettest Januarys’ since records began, we are embracing the sunshine and the island is refreshed and rehydrated by the much needed rains. As the sun shines her healing rays, the island is beginning to bloom, and whilst we continue to enjoy the peace and tranquillity, there are many ways to enjoy the month of February here in Ibiza. Here are a few of our February favourites…
The sight of the acres and acres of fragrant pink and white almond blossom trees which fill our countryside each and every year simply have to be seen to be believed…..in fact they have become such an iconic wonder of nature that people travel to the island each year from Europe and further afield simply to marvel at their beauty.These magical trees can be found all over Ibiza, but if you head to the northwest of the island, towards Santa Agnes and San Mateu, home to some of our most loved villas in Ibiza, then you will discover an abundance of these unmistakable blooms just waiting to be admired.
If there´s one thing Ibiza knows how to do, it´s throwing a party! Each and every February Ibiza Town, Santa Eulalia and San Antonio host their annual carnaval event. Colourful, fun and family friendly, this a big date in the diary for many island residents, who flock to the streets to enjoy the sight of the brightly decorated floats pass by, filled with participants from schools, dance and sports clubs and local businesses. Each float has its own individual theme, many with great soundsystems adding to the party vibe, with children and adults alike singing and dancing alongside and aboard as the parade passes through town. The whole town joins into the carnaval spirit, with bars and restaurants offering special prices on food and drinks and families, children and holidaymakers alike filling the streets to create a real Ibizan atmosphere.
A great way to experience the aforementioned almond blossom in its full glory is to join a guided walking tour, where island experts will take you on a journey to places you may never find alone. Walking Ibiza is arguably the most professional and knowledgeable of these organisations, and is led by island born and all round Ibiza expert Toby Clarke and his team, whose inherent love of the island and her hidden pathways is evident in each and every route they plan. During the month of February you can join them on one of their many walks, each one is carefully mapped out and leads you on a journey of discovery and adventure.
