Martin Garrix has always held a special affection for Ibiza, Spain. Every summer, the jet-setting superstar returns to the Spanish island for a DJ residency, allowing him to enjoy the island’s culture, food, and natural beauty all season long.Less
"My favorite place in Ibiza is definitely Ushuaïa [where I have my summer residency]. I love the setting, atmosphere, and overall setup. It’s a surreal place, and I’ve been going there for over 12 years. The first time I went, I snuck in to see Swedish House Mafia, and the year after that, I played a set myself. It will always be magical to play there with the sun going down, planes flying over, and people dancing."
"Es Vedrà is a small island located near Ibiza that is considered to hold a special magnetic energy. I enjoy taking a boat ride to this unique and beautiful location. The lookout point is also amazing, where you can witness the most insane sunsets. It’s something you should experience at least once in your life. I’ve spent some of my most amazing evenings there with friends."
"Formentera is also another great island to visit. It has beautiful blue water, gorgeous beaches, and some really nice other restaurants."
"This is my favorite restaurant on Formentera. In terms of the menu, you can order anything here and it will taste amazing, but the lobster is a must-try."
"This is hands down one of my favorite restaurants on Ibiza. It’s located on the beach with an amazing atmosphere and serves some of the best food. It’s a shared-dining concept. One of the dishes I can definitely recommend there is the grilled king crab legs. Also make sure you save some room for dessert, because the pineapple one is amazing. "
"Ibiza’s Old Town is rich in history. Next to the shops and classic white, narrow streets that capture Ibiza really well, the ancient walled fortress of Dalt Vila is worth a visit. The area around the fortress is also worth exploring, with several beautiful churches and museums like the Museum of Contemporary Art."
"This is another restaurant that I love. It is located on a beautiful beach, and they have an amazing garden behind the restaurants. You can find some really cool photo spots there. Some of my favorites on the menu are the fried squid, baba ghanoush with pomegranate and pita bread, the Argentinean Black Angus entrecôte, and chicken thigh."
"For me, the best nightclub on Ibiza is Hï. Just across the road from Ushuaïa, it’s located on the former spot of Space Ibiza. The setup of the club as well as the production quality is the best of the best. They have great programming throughout the summer, and you can find me there pretty frequently. Also, don’t forget to check out the party room in the toilets!"
"I highly recommend this hike. I went with my parents and friends last year, and it was incredible. The experience is truly special, especially once you reach the beach at the end of the hike. You can park relatively close to the beach at the nearby village, after which the beach is a 10-minute walk. Or you can decide to walk all the way from Es Cubells to Cala Llentrisca, which is about four hours in total (return trip). The hike can be pretty intense, but it’s definitely worth it."
"Last but not least, definitely visit Hostal La Torre if you can. The setting there is very beautiful and the atmosphere is like nowhere else. One of my favorite things to do there is watch the sunset (as it’s one of the best spots on Ibiza to do so) with good company and some drinks. Around the sunset hours, lots of people will gather in front of the restaurant as well to enjoy it with some music in the background. It’s very special."
