Swimwear365; 48hrs in Ibiza Challenge!

Tuesday, 19 August 2014

It's taken what feels like forever to get over my holiday come-down, coming home after the holiday of a lifetime is never easy (post to follow!) but I'm now finally back into the swing of things and getting ready to begin my honours year in September, so when Swimwear365 contacted me asking if I'd like to enter their 48 Hours in Ibiza challenge I jumped at the opportunity and the chance to win 48 hours in Ibiza before I begin my final year at Uni, perfect timing no?!

So here's the challenge create my dream itinerary for 48 hours in Ibiza, definitely no mean feat as squeezing in all that Ibiza has to offer in such a short time would be a challenge, but a challenge I'd be more than willing to accept! ;) My dream itinerary would take place from the 11th-14th of September (one of the proposed weekends by Swimwear365.) With all the nitty gritty over and done with lets get down to the fun stuff, creating an incredible itinerary for the holiday of a lifetime squeezed into 48 hours!!

Dia uno; Viernes

Making sure to get the weekend started with a splash I'd begin my first day with a few hours spent diving with Punta Dive Ibiza looking at beautiful fish and seahorses, as every mermaid worth her salt loves the sea ;) I did a bit of snorkeling whilst in Florida and have wanted to learn to dive forever, so this would be the perfect chance to explore the crystal blue Balearic Island waters. And of course the opportunity to give some Swimwear365 swimwear a test run, I love Swimwear365 as they are one of the few companies that stock sized bikinis in my size!

After a morning spent aquainting ourselves with the local aquatic residents, we'd head for a spot of lunch at Cafe Sidney soaking up the beautiful harbour views, sipping cocktails and enjoying the incredibly fresh seafood (Ah the irony, after meeting their friends :/ ) and delicious Spanish cuisine.

In anticipation of our evening antics' we'd spend the afternoon lazing at the beach and soaking up some rays, got to get some precious suntanning hours in when the time is limited!

The Sol d'en Serra beach looks pretty idyllic and the perfect spot to while away a few hours swimming in the sea and lazing on the beach and of course another opportunity to give another Swimwear365 bikini an outing, I think this one from Panache would be just the ticket and help me to feel like a bond girl emerging from the sea onto the white sandy beach... a girl can dream eh?! ;)

After a spot if sun-worshipping it'd be time to head back to our hotel to doll ourselves up ready to dance the night away at Ibiza Rocks to Jess Glynne and Route 94, first up of course would be a spot of dinner at Elements Ibiza, then onto bust a move or two!

Dia Dos; Sabado

After an action packed first day in Ibiza our second day would be spent soaking up more of the culture, atmosphere and of course consuming copious amounts of sangria. First up would be some much needed strong coffee and a spot of breakfast, after a night partying hard we might be feeling a touch delicate. Then we'd head to one of the world famous Hippy Market's the Hippy Market Las Dalias in San Carlos. Spending a chilled out morning wandering round the stalls, snapping up a few bargains and enjoying mugfuls of refreshing mint tea (what hangover!!)

After a relaxed morning to get us into the swing of things the afternoon would be spent squeezing in a bit more excitement, we'd head on a Cooltra Guided Scooter tour around the island to explore more of the island and enjoy the beautiful Ibiza scenery.

To round off what would be sure to be an incredible weekend we'd head out for an amazing end of weekend dinner at Bambuddha, where we'd enjoy the beautiful surroundings, fine food and obligatory cocktails (of course!) After dinner we'd head to the world famous Cafe Mambo for cocktails and a spot of dancing, the perfect end to the perfect weekend!

So there we have it my perfect 48 hours in Ibiza action packed and sure to create hundreds of lasting memories, fingers crossed my entry does well and who knows I could be jetting off to make a few of these memories ;) I've never been to Ibiza and making this itinerary has definitely made me want to head over for a wee island break, here's hoping I'll be able to sing the infamous Venga Boys tune sometime soon!
