Ibiza recommendations: summer 2020

Like everywhere around the world, summer started late in Ibiza this year and until recently, there have been remarkably fewer visitors than usual. The island known for its party scene won’t reopen its clubs either nor its infamous “party” restaurants like Heart. Having lived there for over six years, I’ve always said that Ibiza is the island of many faces. This year it’s showing its natural, more peaceful and high quality side.
