Ultimate weekend in Ibiza | Spirituality and the Summer Solstice

The mystical islands are no more spiritual than Ibiza. Where else can you party at night and live straight-edge by day?

There are specific weekends that stand out as having that extra “wow” factor when it comes to queues, but with summer solstice today we believe that this weekend could be considered a ibiza ultimate weekends for another set of reasons.

If you’re looking to escape reality and dance away your worries, or tap into your inner self and channel the energy of the island, nothing could be more of a getaway than a long weekend in Ibiza.

These Thursday-Sunday round-trip island excursions are often our favorite type.

Board, drop off your bags, then find a balance between party and well-being in the space of 72 to 96 hours. Illuminating.


summer solstice

Marking the longest day of the year, Tuesday, June 21 is the summer solstice. It is a day when light shines for all of us in unlimited measure. This happens when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, or as meteorologists will tell you, just above 23.5 degrees north latitude.

For some, this can be enjoyed by simply lazing outside in the big blues for those extra minutes to soak up the sun. This is especially true here in Ibiza.

For others, it marks a nobler time in their year. This is because the summer solstice is often seen as a turning point – a gateway to a time of changing energy and we can celebrate the abundance of our lives and the beauty of our planet.

Our minds are refreshed, renewed and buzzing with energy. We think there’s no better place in the world to celebrate than on this magical rock we call Ibiza. A mecca not only for those who share offerings with an open heart, but also for those who want to entertain, Ibiza hosts some of the most creative and energetic experiences you can find.

Cosmic Pineapple in Pikes

Held around the full moon of each month, cosmic pineapple is an event that truly embodies creative and cosmic connection, as its name suggests. Her fancy house pike offers many beautiful opportunities to unite, not only in body and mind, but with the community that gathers here to share their gifts.

During the day, therapists and magicians rework your body and mind in the healing garden or lift your spirits during magical ceremonies in the dome. As night falls, dance under the stars by the pool, before heading to Freddies nightclub until the morning calls. More information


Feast of San Juan

The Feast of San Juan celebrates the birth of Saint John the Baptist and is celebrated across the island on June 23 and 24 each year. Families, residents and visitors to Ibiza gather as processions light up the picturesque town of San Juan and open the celebrations throughout these two days.

Traditional folk dances and games take place in the streets, with stalls and creative local artists selling their wares.

Bonfires and fireworks are a community-bonding theme within this special celebration, and you can join friends and strangers in jumping over hot coals, if you dare!

Although San Juan is the main hub of these joyful festivities, other towns and villages join in the celebrations and fireworks. It’s a charming and unique way to experience Ibiza beyond the tourist lens and see the island at its heart. More information

Akasha at Las Dalias

Being the oldest, Las Dalias claims to be the most important musical place in Ibiza. It was in San Carlos, in the north of the island, that the original camp of the hippies was established.

Although the village has modernized, this mentality is still very present, from the shops to the cafes.

Las Dalias remains the beating heart of the community and while its program has always stayed true to its roots, an exciting development emerged last year with a new club space Akacha.

Programmed by resident Ibiza DJ Igor Marijuán, Akasha is an intimate club that does justice to the history of Las Dalias with its assured programming. Friday, June 24 is a good example, as Igor invites guest star Tim Green to join him in the central DJ booth for a night of deep, earthy House music. More info and tickets
