The magic of Ibiza has always attracted celebrities, since the sixties when Elizabeth Taylor and Ursula Andress graced the beaches, and Terry Thomas, Denholm Elliot and Leslie Phillips held infamous parties in the hills of Santa Eulalia. These days, Ibiza is a haven for the rich and famous from the fashion, film and music industries. Here are our top celebrity hotspots.
Perhaps the most famous celebrity hotspot, the legendary Blue Marlin has an impressive client list. Beyonce, Nicole Scherzinger, Sylvester Stallone and Elle Macpherson have all paid a visit to this exclusive beach club. A number of super yachts are moored outside at any given time, whilst their owners dance the night away to world famous guest DJ’s.
This hotel just outside of San Antonio was the setting for Wham’s Club Tropicana video, and since the eighties has played host to some of the world’s biggest stars. In the foyer you will see photos of the owner Tony Pike with Freddie Mercury, Kylie, Sade, Naomi Campbell, Jon Bon Jovi, Grace Jones, and Jean-Claude Van Damme to name but a few. Now the home of the Ibiza Rocks after parties, you will find some of the coolest acts around hanging by the pool.
Es Cavallet – El Chiringuito
Kate Moss partied here with Marc Jacobs last year, and El Chiringuito is consistently full of visiting celebrities. With its whitewashed stylish decor and sublime surroundings, the restaurant is also renowned for its excellent food and wine list.
Cipriani – Downtown Ibiza
Ex racing driver turned luxury restaurateur Guiseppe Cipriani launched his latest eponymous restaurant in Ibiza Town in 2012. As he can count some of the world’s hottest movie stars as close friends, don’t be surprised to find Leonardo di Caprio dining on the next table to Naomi Campbell here during the summer months. The stylish and elegant restaurant is set over two floors of the Ibiza Gran Hotel, with stunning views of the harbour, and towards D´Alt Vila.
Since opening their doors in the summer of 2012, Nikki Beach has quickly established itself as one of Ibiza’s must do destinations. Paris Hilton’s yacht was almost permanently moored outside during the month of August last year, and Idris Elba, Fatboy Slim and Pete Tong have all graced the decks.
The breathtaking beauty of Benirras in the north of the island attracts a more bohemian crowd. Jade Jagger has a home nearby and you can often find celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury or the supermodel Natalia Vodiavona enjoying the carefree atmosphere with their children. The British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife even paid a visit here on their much publicised Ibiza holiday in 2013.
