#IbizaChallenge with Swimwear365

Ibiza is a destination I've never visited but have always wondered about. You always hear about the crazy nightlife but I'd love to see what Ibiza is really like. After my city trip to Paris, I really need a beach getaway and through Swimwear365, this could become a reality! 

Swimwear365 are giving one lucky blogger (and a friend!) the chance to win an amazing trip to be jetted off to Ibiza, complete with some Swimwear365 pieces, to spend Thursday-Sunday at the party summer destination.

Whether you want to visit the world-famous Pacha nightclub or just relax on the beach with a cocktail and a good book, 48 hours in Ibiza is the perfect way to round off the summer! Read more about the competition here.

Ibiza is very well known for being the party island that never sleeps, but I want to prove that it can be much more than that! There's Old Ibiza town for markets and sightseeing and then there's San Antonio for non-stop partying, there's definitely something for everyone...

My Itinerary: 

It's Friday. We land in Ibiza early in the morning ready for our first 24 hours on the island. We make our way to the hotel for a quick pit stop before changing into our Swimwear365 swimsuits and heading over to Cala Bassa beach (by boat of course!) to soak up some rays. After a few relaxed hours at the beach, drinking cocktails and taking a dip in the sea, we make our way to the oh so popular Las Dalias Hippy Market in San Carlos, coming away with some beautiful handmade bracelets to remember our trip by. 

Evening is now approaching so we set off back to the hotel, change into our evening attire and head over to Ibiza Town to tuck into some delicious food at the Hard Rock Cafe (I try to visit one wherever I go!), maybe a burger and chips? Or chicken? So many choices! Before finally ending what has been a fab day with a visit to the world-famous Pacha nightclub, where we spending the evening listening to David Guetta blasting his tunes all night long.

I've opted for pieces that I can adapt throughout the day and bring from beach, to meal, to evening. I've paired a simple black swimsuit with a white kaftan and Birkenstocks for both the beach and exploring the markets and island. For the evening, a maxi dress is the obvious choice paired with Birkenstocks again and the jewellery I picked up from the market earlier.

It's Saturday! Our last 24 hours will be set aside to explore the island and get away from the hustle and bustle of San Antonio, so it's off to San Carlos village we go for a day of exploring the more beautiful areas of Ibiza. We first head to Cala San Vicente, the most beautifully vibrant blue sea you ever will see (so I've heard!) to take in the surrounding coastline and sea. To keep refreshed we pop over to Hidden Bar for a cocktail (or two) and then have a quick lunch at On the Beach who are said to do some of the best burgers around.
     We then make our way back to explore the cobbled stone streets and views of Old Ibiza town. All the while snapping away with my camera to capture every last moment. For our final evening we head to CafĂ© del Mar to have a very relaxed time watching the sunset and reminiscing about the past 48 hours in Ibiza.

It's Sunday! We're up early to eat breakfast and make the most of the Ibiza sunrise. We then set out on the open road to the airport, loose trousers and a cami are a definite necessity and within no time we're back in England!
