After meeting Jonathon Lipsin and Bernadette Mundy on Facebook through our joint love of Ibiza, Formentera and music, I invited them over to Ibiza for a days tour of the Island for food, fun and frolics each year.
This was to be our second trip and we met at our usual meeting place outside the Café Mar y Sol in Ibiza Town after their short sea trip from Formenter, we were joined this time by my friends from London, Danny and Pankaj.
Once settled in our hire car I gave them a CD I had made of their favourite music (this had become a regular tradition) and we set off for our tour. Leaving the busy Eivissa (Ibiza town) w...
We recently returned to Casa Salvador to find, it is as good as ever.
It is located in the La Albufera rice growing area of Valencia in the estuary of Cullera, which is a freshwater lagoon that flows into the sea. It is not easy to find.
Make your way over the bridge in Cullera along the back road (CV-605) > right at Via pista > left at Poligon num 28 Estany > right onto Avenida de Estany) If you feel lost don't turn back, it's worth it in the end!

From Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio) follow the signs down to Cala Gració. Around 100 meters before you get there you will see a sign on the right for El Chiringuito. Drive down this narrow walled road and you will find a small car park at the bottom.
The car park is just above Cala Gracioneta which is a Sublime little, secluded sandy beach.
El Chiringuito is placed at the back of this lovely little beach with great views from its terrace out over the beach onto the sea.
You can while away a great day here feasting on the food, which is mainly Ibicencan fish and seafood. Quite often you will see a d...
