Icelolly.com’s recent Ibiza themed ‘Blog at the Beach’ got me thinking, what culture does the little Spanish island have to offer? But before I reveal my top four culture spots in Ibiza, here’s what I got up to at the event.
Blog at the Beach
Around 80 awesome bloggers and YouTubers received invites to Blog At The Beach for an afternoon of Ibiza themed fun. We enjoyed sangria, banging tunes, competitions and three inspirational talks from well established bloggers.
I spent a lot of my time with the lovely girlies below! I’ve known fellow Leeds blogger, Michelle, for a few months and finally met Danielle in ‘real life’ after talking online. I also found new faces in Rae and Rebecca! As well as lots of other people, but there are too many to name!
Brand Director, Suniel Makh, launched the event with an insight into the company and its ethos. If you don’t already know, icelolly.com are a super cheap price comparison website that takes the hard work out of travel. From all-inclusive beach holidays to cheeky city breaks, they have you covered.
It’s clear they value the importance of influencers and understand the reach they have. Not only by holding regular Blog At The Beach events, but by committing to working with bloggers on different campaigns, like press trips and Instagram takeovers.

Top Four Culture Spots in Ibiza
So, feeling inspired by the Ibiza theme, I’ve chosen four ways to enjoy a more cultural and less ‘clubby’ side to the island.
I had a chin wag with Brand Director, Suniel, about his upcoming trip to San Antonio. I visited aged 11 so had quite a different experience! But Suniel, if you take a day out from clubbing, you could maybe pop on a boat to the Aquarium. It’s only five Euro and inside a natural cave!
Enjoy a relaxed night out and join a movie alfresco! Cinema Paridiso was Ibiza’s first ever outdoor cinema. Watch a film on the beach during a sultry summer night and sip cocktails under the stars.
BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival is a free, island wide celebration of arts and culture. Explore gigantic murals, interactive installations and much more from 23rd August to 16th September.
4. Hippy Market
Dubbing themselves the authentic hippy market of Ibiza, every Wednesday, Es Canar hosts a colourful and cultural flea market. More than 500 craftsman and artists offer original items alongside special performances and street food.
I’d like to thank icelolly.com for inviting me along to Blog At The Beach. I met lots of brilliant bloggers and gained a new-found enthusiasm for my cultural channel.
