People / Insider Tips / Maya Claughton Boyd

A freelance travel and style journalist, Maya first visited the island when she was 15: “It was an instant love affair.” Now an Ibiza devotee (she's the author of Vogue's Ibiza blog and Editor of Pacha magazine), Maya loves the possibilities the island holds: “You can do anything you want in Ibiza. You can live a hundred different lives.”

Maya Claughton Boyd's Top Tips

  1. Read about the island – both Ibiza and Formentera have incredible histories and there are plenty of books to discover. The Road To San Vicente (Leif Borthen) is a beautiful memoir of life in the tiny northern cove before the road connected it with the rest of the island.
  2. Take the road less travelled. Drive from San Carlos to Cala San Vicente and up and over to Portinatx – the sea views and scenery are unsurpassable. Likewise the clifftop road from Benirras to Port San Miguel, preferably at sunset.
  3. Bathe in the glory of Ibiza’s most sensational sunset view. Hotel Hacienda occupies an eagle’s perch, 180m above the waters of Na Xamena. Purpose-built whirlpools and cascades are cut out of the craggy limestone, allowing you to soak in sunset bubbles. Otherworldy.
