IBIZA: BEACHES FUN
The first time I came to Ibiza, it was the 2006. He comes from summer experiences in the Greek islands, discos, clubs and cosmopolitan tourism, I came here, full of expectations. I must be sincere: when I land here, in the Isla as many call it, in the air and in the people it was felt that it was not just any place; here, adrenaline and music get into your skin. Ibiza at night is transformed, with the port, which in the evening becomes a real theater, in which only one show is staged ... the fun!
