In 2014, the famed Ibiza beach restaurant co-owned by Carl Cox, Safehouse Management’s Lynn Cosgrave and long-time island entrepreneur Jason Bull (of Es Vive fame) landed in an all-new frontline location on Playa d’en Bossa (formerly Sirocco), set between sand dunes and the perfect place to while away a summer (or winter – stay tuned for more news later) afternoon. Giving you all the more reason to visit Sands Ibiza is the menu created by renowned head chef Tim Payne – an array of options and flavours to suit all tastebuds and sourced locally where possible. A menu with a heart as big as its… well, burger! Read more
Keeping things light and summery on his menu for summer 2014, renowned head chef Tim Payne of Sands Ibiza fuses the flavours of the Mediterranean with modern flare, opting for locally sourced products and ingredients wherever possible. Beautifully presented, the whole sea bass – grilled to perfection ‘a la plancha’ – is a long-time beach favourite that has been given the Sands Ibiza twist – served up with citrus fruits and saffron potatoes then drizzled with a zingy, zesty sauce of orange, olive oil and coriander.
With the closing party for Carl Cox‘s 13th season at Space looming, the legendary techno DJ – who first came to Ibiza in 1984 and has returned every year since – talks about his relationship with the island and the exciting 2014 season…
30 years is more than half your life! What keeps you coming back? ”There’s nowhere else like it. I’ve been everywhere in the world and Ibiza has a really big heart and spirit. It’s a blessing to be able to go to these clubs and also feel so connected with the island – I don’t feel that in Tenerife, Magaluf or anywhere else. Ibiza is the only place.”

Let me tell you, it isn’t often Miss W goes ‘off duty’ but there are indeed some days here in Ibiza (just a few, mind you), when I like to give the laptop a rest, leave the iPhone at home and totally disconnect from it all. Last Saturday was due to be one of those rare days…
There I was, bikini, kaftan, sunglasses and the latest edition of Vogue at the ready, all technical equipment officially shut down and en route way to my favourite ever secret Ibiza beach (and no, I’m not telling which one!) when the pestering little voice of my conscience started to whisper, ‘Wax Da Beach, Wax Da Beach, Wax Da Beeeeeeach!’ Read more
