Editors' Choice - 29th August 2013

A Must Read for Ibiza Virgins to experienced visitors - the real Ibiza, each week, every week for Summer 2013.

The Show Must Go On.

For the first time in two years, this weeks Editors' Choice is being published under the name of KT Uhlig.

Long and the short of it being that Cat is currently unwell (although singing the praises of Accident and Emergency staff, from start to finish. Should you ever, and we pray not!, need to use the local medical facilities, Cat would be the first in line to reassure you that it's ok. Very ok)

The Editors' Choice has become synonymous with the best of Ibiza and at the beginning of the season, Cat promised you that Ibiza Spotlight would host the column, 'each week, every week' for the Summer. Therein the team have stepped into make sure that promise is kept - in the true spirit of our commitment to you and Ibiza, the Editors' Choice will reach you this week.

Please enjoy the following hi-lights and insights and we hope Cat is able to return next week to the role.

Things to Do.

Star Boats Ibiza have made the Mediterranean accessible to everyone. Offering small motor boats without a skipper, no licence required, this is definitely an experience not to be missed. A member of our team and his family went and tried it out, and has raved about it ever since.

Villa of the Week

Villa Can Vich, a 200 year-old farmhouse completely refurbished, retaining all its original features - wooden beams, stone walls, tiles - comprising a guest house and 2 annexes, comfortably sleeping up to 14 people (the villa can also be booked for 10 or 12 people only). With plenty of private areas and a large infinity pool, this villa is ideal for groups, workshops and seminars.

Clubbing

If you have any friends that live and work on the island, you might know those people normally don't particularly love August. It's hot, it's very busy everywhere and the traffic is crazy for such a small island. So everyone is always looking forward to September. But on the other hand, if we talk about clubbing, August often brings the best artists to Ibiza. This coming Friday 30th August is one of the strongest nights of the summer - 4 absolutely great parties happen on the same night, read our latest pick of the week to see which ones I'm talking about. Really hard to give you a tip where to go as it really depends on what you like, but Carl Cox performing on the Amnesia Terrace will be something truly special, that's for sure.

And then, September effectively kicks in! One special party happening on Tuesday next week is the Annie Mac Presents event up in Dalt Vila, brought to you by the IMS International Music Summit organizers. We at Spotlight are huge fans of the venue, the Baluard St. Llucia in Dalt Vila is an amazing location and if you add Annie Mac, a live performance of Disclosure and DJ sets of Julio Bashmore and others to that...what more could you ask for? Get your ticket now and see you there, the fiesta starts at 6pm and stops at midnight.
