Ibiza Hidden Beaches - Part 1; Cala Escondida

Cala Escondida

Cala Escondida is a tiny little sandy beach next to Cala Conta (which is also spelt Cala Compte) on the west coast of Ibiza. This clothing optional beach has incredible sunset views, particularly in the main summer months of July & August. There is a simple bar, called of course Bar Cala Escondida, that offers beer, wine, sangria & snacks and is an amazing (almost) secret place to get a frontline seat for the best show in town. The sea is great for snorkelling and just chilling out on this little known Ibiza beach. View the villas we have on the western side of Ibiza

Ibiza Villas For Families With Toddlers

Does anyone really think enough about families in Ibiza?

Not all Ibiza villas are constructed with young families in mind,..not everyone wants marble floors and low level balconies But there are plenty of great villas with facilities to keep everyone happy, especially mum and dad. We also have villas that have a separate annexe or bungalow so you can invite the in-laws but keep them a little at arms length if you need to !
So what do today’s most demanding toddlers expect from their Ibiza villa
Fence around the swimming poolPlaygroundNot too many steps outsideIdeallya villa all on one levelGardens with lawn so that falling over doesn’t mean grazed kneesBBQ for dad he can impress everyone with his culinary skillsWi-Fi so that you don’t miss your favourite Cbeebies programme
Whilst not every villa we recommend for families with children under 5 years will tick all these boxes we think our selection will satisfy most families holiday requirements. We have also built (for a small additional …

Ibiza Villas In Winter

Yes yes it’s the middle of summer and we know no one wants to be thinking about just winter yet, but whilst we know Ibiza is a very different place to stay in the winter months we ask you to give a few minutes thought to the idea
Why come to Ibiza in the winter ?
Ibiza is open..yes yes many places are closed, and you won’t catch many people lying on the beach. The only club that stays open in the winter is Pacha which is open on Friday & Saturday nights every weekend from November to April. Whilst many restaurants do close for the winter, many others stay open.
And if you come to Ibiza in the winter you can get to discover the bits of the island that you just didn’t get round to doing, or that you quite frankly just couldn’t be bothered to do in the summer because it’s too hot, and when there is so much to do you feel like you are rushing from one amazing restaurants to another.. well imagine Ibiza without the crowds & without the cars on the road…when time slows down a little…

Ibiza Chef Hire - Villa Private Dining

Ibiza Chef Hire
Ibiza has many amazing restaurants to suit all tastes and all pockets, but having your own chef at your Ibiza villa to cook for you once during your stay, or to offer a full service during your stay to include breakfast & lunch or dinner (or any combination you require) for you every day, is an ideal way to be pampered during your time in Ibiza.
Some of the Ibiza villas we feature already come with chef and / or butler included, so a bit like a catered ski chalet.. without the snow. To view these villas then please click here.

For other villas we feature you can arrange for the chef to come and cook a BBQ, paella or something else for you…But this is more than a BBQ…this is a real gastronomic taste sensation from a team of chefs who are very experienced at providing a real taste experience for you.

They will prepare much of the food away from the villa so as not to disturb you, and you will find the service discreet and efficient…they’ll also wash up and clean up a…

Ibiza Boat Rental

Not Just For A-List Celebrities!
Have you noticed that when anyone is photographed in Ibiza they seem to be on a boat?  and not just any boat but a super sleek sexy Sunseeker… well hiring a boat may not be as expensive as you think… and spending some time on the water looking at Ibiza from the sea gives you a totally different perspective of the island.. And let’s be really honest here, everyone is more than a bit jealous of people on boats! It’s kind of the epitome of cool in Ibiza. So if you want to impress then get a boat...

So book your villa with Unique Ibiza Villas, and then we can arrange a speedboat or yacht during your stay

Where to go?
If you are hiring a boat for just one day then we would recommend heading to the neighbouring island of Formentera, and take in the island of Es Palmador En-route. If you know Formentera then you won’t need selling on the amazing beaches and beach restaurants…and if you haven’t been to Formenterayet then where have you been? Voted some of the…

Cala Vadella beach Ibiza

Cala Vadella Ibiza
Cala Vadella (or can also be spelt Cala Vedella) is a small family friendly sandy bay located on the west coast of Ibiza. There is a really chilled feel to this quiet resort. There are about 7 restaurants located around the small bay, which range from traditional Spanish restaurants to pizzerias.
There is also a day time beach club called Maya.

The sea is really safe for children with a large safe area that is enclosed with a large buoy. Paddle boarding is also a popular activity due to the stillness of the sea most of the year. You also get a spectacular sunset from this part of Ibiza, and creates a really beautiful picture postcard scene.

There is also a sandcastle school on the beach at CalaVadella that you can take your kids to… no buckets here, this is sand sculpturing…so if you have ever wondered how these sand sculptures are created then this is the chance for your kids to show their budding artistic no time they will be building super-size castles…

Ibiza Car Hire - Avoid The Queues

Ibiza Car Rental - Things to Know Before You Go

Hiring a car in Ibiza is the perfect way to get around the island, to discover the amazing beaches, restaurants, and hidden gems that are all over the island just waiting to be discovered.
here are some tips for car rental in Ibiza with Unique Ibiza Villas, via our dedicated website
-Book early. Yes it’s a cliché to say book early, but Ibiza is an island so when cars have run out they have really run out. If you are travelling in July & August then it will save you money and hassle if you book as soon as you can.

-         - You snooze you lose as prices do change the later you book. As demand outstrips supply you can expect prices to rise - -     - Not all car rental companies are the same ! Once you have made your booking though of course the price will not increase
-          - We offer a meet & greet service  at the airport away from the crowds (200 metres from the arrivals area), and therefore you sh…

When is the best time to book your Ibiza villa for summer 2017?

When is the best time to book your Ibiza villa for summer 2017?
The simple answer is now! As they say there is no time like the present. Unique Ibiza Villas have over 140 Ibiza villas and many of them are available to book now, and many of them are available to book at 2016 prices.
You can view our 2017 villa range by clicking this link There are certain villas that always get booked up early and remember there are some peak dates that are always the first to get booked up.
These are: Half term week; from 27th May 2017.. the double whammy of school holidays across Europe and the opening parties means that demand will outstrip supply. 

The week around the weekend of 24th/25th June – now, to be honest, we’re not 100% dire why this is a popular date; we think it’s probably because the June prices are really good as in July there is often a bit of a price increase so maybe you get a little more “bang for your buck” the weather is normally pretty amazing and the island is really sta…
