Embrace the waves for 2017

Celebrate the New Year on Ibiza with waves and wine

The New Year’s Dive on Las Salinas beach is becoming an annual tradition on Ibiza and there is no better way to start another great year. A refreshing dash into the sea followed by a glass of bubbly will really set you up for 2017.

Originally organised as a bit of fun by Jeroen, the founder of Vino & Co, it started off as a small gathering of family and friends. Over the last few years the event has grown in popularity, so much so that last year saw around 300 people take part.

Everyone is welcome so whether you are old or young, toned or wobbly, even nursing a hangover, come along and join in the fun. Arrive before midday to take part in the first dive of the year or if you really can't get out of bed, do not fear, there are two more opportunities at 13 h and 14 h

Organisers, local wine supplier, Vino & Co will be supplying the liquid refreshments with a selection of wine and bubbles from their fantastic range as well as pancakes for the children. Anyone who comes along is asked to bring a tasty dish for sharing with your fellow swimmers once you emerge hungry from your dive.

If an invigorating winter swim followed by warm chat over a glass of wine and a bite to eat sounds like an amazing way to start the new year then Las Salinas is the place to be.

Then, for the 'hardcore' amongst you and just down the road is Circoloco at DC10 - back for its fantastic New Year's Day edition.

So start as you mean to go on and dive into 2017. Splashy New Year!
