We are very happy to welcome guest contributors in this column!

Our new Happy Hippy contributor is a PR and communications expert. We met at a « Fooding » event she was organizing while in Paris. As an authentic foodista & wine lover, she turned her passion into her job and that’s what makes her smile every day. Alessia actually lives in Milan but travels and works all around the world. Whenever she can, she flies back to Ibiza, –her « Buen Retiro »– where she would love to open a « Green B&B » and produce her own biodynamic wine.

SATURDAY

If you want to live Ibiza the green way you should start by picking the right place to stay: Can Marti is an « eco-hotel » located in the North of the Island. This ancient finca whose 17 hectares include a natural swimming pool, a wide variety of plants and a vegetable garden with aromatic herbs: the perfect place to feel like you’re one with nature.

Once you’ve left your baggage behind, put your sneakers on and go visit Ibiza Old Town, Dalt Vila. Cross over the drawbridge and you’ll find yourself in a medieval town with cobbled streets and breathtaking views.

After this long walk you might get hungry, so take your hybrid car and drive to San Rafael at the Rabbit Hole, the only 100% vegan and organic shop & deli in Ibiza. Every day you can get something different, according to the seasonal products available. If you are not in a hurry go down the Rabbit Hole, and you will find a lovely juice bar where you can enjoy your time reading a book or a magazine.

Take some food to go, and head west to Cala Conta, a beautiful beach with crystal water and a cool bar up on the rocks with a DJ, Sunset Ashram playing.

ibizaIf you’re not ready for the « swimsuit » test, opt for a walk at the Hippie Market at Las Dalias, where  you’ll find vintage lace dresses, flower crowns and hippie stuff for nice gifts. The smell of incense won’t let you down! Look for a small bar where you’ll find fresh healthy juices and hippies all around playing Goa Music. You’ll feel like you’re in heaven.

At sunset, move to Es Vedra, a mystical rock you should recognize while landing in the Island. It’s considered to be the third most magnetic point in the world. Sit down on the rocks, close your eyes and fill your body with energy.

It’s dinner time: nothing better than a light meal at La Paloma, where authentic « home made » Mediterranean dishes are prepared with the very best ingredients: love and care.

This country house set in the middle of a beautiful orange orchard is decorated with pastel furniture and homemade romantic wall places. This is a place full of character that will make you literally feel at home. Try their amazing parmigiana or one of their delicious organic salads.

End your dinner with a glass of Hierbas, the typical liquor from the Island, and then head to Ibiza town for some crazy dances at Teatro Pereira, one of the most characteristic cocktail and music bars in town. This old theater has been turned into a cocktail club which hosts a different live music show each night.

And if you still have some energy left, follow the cherries that will lead you to Pacha, where the best DJS in the world usually perform!

SUNDAY

No better start to the day than a Yoga session at Atzaro hotel, one of the most relaxing places in the heart of the island. This agroturismo is the perfect place to make your body and mind go along with nature.

For your last evening (but you’ll be back!), go north to Benirras beach, the place to be on Sunday evening, where local hippies gather at sunset playing music and dancing until the sun goes down. And when it’s suddenly dark, everybody goes home with the sun in their heart….
